    0x484 bytes. It's identical in all three versions. I think it's some kind of loader for the ELF file.

    it injects a Wii ISO into a WiiU Wii virtual console channel. (you know, the wii games you can download on WiiU eShop and install/launch on WiiU menu)
    this tool let you generate new channels for Wii games not available on eShop, if ou have the Wii game ISO.

    This tool is a "all in one" application.
    it's a program which let you do the process easily, instead of using 5 different tools you use only 1.

    You're talking about the WiiVC Injector Script, aren't you?
    This tool (fwpatcher) simply patches the fw.img in a Wii VC game to allow for lots of stuff, such as running homebrew, playing GameCube ISOs using Nintendont, and using the Wii U GamePad as a Wii Remote.

    ohh, you are right.
    sorry XD

    pff, dealing with too many threads at the same time, I'm mixing everything haha


    WiiVC injector will prevent you from using fwpatcher manually. (it's one of the "5 tools you have to use manually")
    either you use different tools one after the other, or you use wiivcinjector.
    maybe the "manual tools" have more features and usefulness.

    @leseratte I've been trying to test the patch for wiimotes in GamePad mode, but when I try it on Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii, the GamePad just gets disabled as a controller. Is this a known issue with the patch, or am I applying it incorrectly? (Essentially adding the patch and making sure the DRC_Use in the meta is 65537).

    But you do select Gamepad mode when starting the game right?

    Yes I do, after that the GamePad doesn't work as a controller at all, but touching the touch screen does still show the no touch icon when you touch it instead of the notice that the GamePad can't be used as a controller.

    Can this be used to allow usb peripherals? I have been trying to make Skylanders work with VC injects but the portal of power is not recognized when loading Wii mode.
