This is just a (dumb) little app I threw together since it was really easy to do so. For all you installer haters, it runs without any installers, as a matter of fact, it's just a single exe file, nothing else.
It basically lets you choose which of the hacks for preloader you want, and creates a hacks.ini file for you (wherever you decide to save it.)
To be clear, this hasn't been tested, but theres not really much that can go wrong. In the even that anything is mistyped, Preloader automatically handles the mistake. Also the code isn't exactly done with too much though, just thown together quickly, so don't expect the smartest code in the world

Keep in mind that this isn't preloader. This is a simple Windows application for making the hacks.ini file without any typing/copy-pasting.
It has all the options for 4.0, 3.2 both US and EU (i.e. 4.0U, 3.2U, 4.0E, 3.2E).

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I really like this little program, especially since you gave out the source.

There wasn't enough of a response here, so I felt the need to post and say thanks.

You got a small typo though, "3.2U (EU)" should be "3.2E (EU)", easy enough to fix in the source.

Thanks ;]

is this for 4.0u?
the hack i have on my wii cant seem to turn of the BGM and its driving me crazy!
Add a blank line to the end of your hacks.ini.

Does the 4.0u "region free from SD menu" hack from this program work, or is it the same one from the wiibrew wiki?

Well, thanks for this great proggie but it would be nice to have hacks for 4.0J. Seems like the impossible dream.

Just to confirm, do the 4.0U region free hacks really work? When 0.29 was released the US region hacks were fake.

I believe the hacks are the same as the ones on the wiki.
Maybe AlexDP could confirm?
I'll check the source later on and compare against the wiki, but for now it's bed time...

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air
