    I found a ios that loads games at normal read speed, modified it for compatibility, lost it on my pc due to a crash and would like to dump from my wii to sd card for devs like da letter a.
    I'll get a video of backup games at full speed soon.
    Thanks
    Edit: I am more fluent in french but think I speak decent enough english.

    There is a Programm called Wad-Packer as far as i know...
    But distributing wads is illegal!

    Distributing them is illegal.

    If you want to dump them, use BlueDump (fakesigning version). You can use Wad Creator, but you need to use wwPacker to resign the wads then.

    Thanks, isn't cioscorp 3.x illegal as well? [​IMG].
    Edit: I am not publicly distrubuting them. Just helping a few devs with some stuff.

    Yes, CORP is indeed illegal. There's a reason you have to email him to get it...

    Thanks for all your help, I'll dump it/send to certain devs, make a vid, and look into a auto-reply e-mail.

    Alright, guess I'll have 2 differente dumps send to devs as there are fake-signing and non-fake signing advantages.

    This comes to ask the question of why he's dumping IOSes. Why not just get them from NUS?

    As the modified version would not be on nus. Only the original which would be obselete in what it's going to be used for. Dumps are on pc now, now to video it in action, proving its read speed.

    well, if your dumping a cIOS which is already fakesigned, i would think using the non-fakesigned version would still dump a fakesigned wad IOS. And using the fakesigned version is overkill... not sure if there any differences... if u find out, plz let me know (i imagine a few quick functionality tests would settle the dispute... ie. test if both or only one version can launch games.)

    When I have 5+ hours today that I can work on this I don't believe its overkill. I'll give you results soon.
    Edit: both can launch games, 1 version might have higher compatibility but dla can help me with that.

    Hmm how do you even know it runs at 6x speed instead of 3x ?
    Anyway this is basically not possible since all loaders use the DVD Video feature (and commands) to run the games (similar to FMCB for PS2) and this will always run at 3x speed.

    I have tested it, gh4, gh3, ghvh, gh5, the conduit, and more run at the same speed as originals, until I get a video up you'll just have to believe me.
    Edit: All I can find is my crappy cam with no sound recording, guess I'll use that

    Should I call this Topic bullsh*t and say that you are a poser/troll? Mhm...not yet...but I'll come again if this isn't true...

    Otherwise, if this is realy true, I don't see why somebody still uses that. The Future belongs to USB-Loading, Disc-Loaders are dying out. And, the games will still be slower than USB. But meh...let's wait and see your "proof". It could be usefull for some people still...
