    Here are 3 tricks that make Wii/GC channel editing and dol/elf testing more fun.

    I thought I would share this in the Hacking section...

    7zip file containing the custom executables and registry file:

    Extract to "c:\windows" and double click "registration.reg"

    Trick 1:
    1. Associate "dol & elf" files with wiiload.exe
    (wiiload.exe has no icon, so I made a custom wiiload with wii icon)
    2. Add wiiload to windows "Environment variables" using "WIILOAD" as variable and "tcp:192.168.1.x" as Value
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    (replace that with your Wii's IP - it's displayed in the homebrew channel - better having it static)

    3. Start Homebrew channel
    4. Now open your dols/elfs via double click :)

    Trick 2:
    1. Associate "wad" files with customizemii
    2. Now you can edit the wads directly via double click

    Trick 3:
    1. Associate "app & bnr" files with wiiplayer.exe (wii_bnr_player with custom icon) dll files included
    2. Open registry Editor and replace %1 with %CURDIR%
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    You can skip steps 1 and 2 if you have extracted the 7z in "c:\windows" and double clicked the registry file.
    3. Now you can preview the banner files by just double clicking them

    Enjoy :P
