    1.) Google is your friend. Base WAD Database

    2.) It's illegal to post key files here, so no direct links. Try this.

    3.) It's probably asking what cIOS you're using to run games in the drop-down menu. You can answer that better than anyone here.
    3b.) For the DOL file part, you want to link the.. well.. boot.dol file for the loader. It should be in the /apps folder on your SD under the loader's folder.

    4.) And most importantly, be careful, as you can easily bannerbrick from creating "bad" wad files.

    The Title ID is a four digit code for the channel.. it's basically a URL for the channel. You want to use something very unique to what you're doing. If you use the same code another channel uses, it'll overwrite the pre-existing channel. HAXX for instance, is the Homebrew Channel, so its obviously dumb to use that. Try using one that resembles the game in question. Like.. KMPT (i.e.. KiiNG's Metroid Prime Trilogy) or something that resembles the process of the channel then you're less likely to run into problems since MOST channels follow those guidelines.

    1. frankly, don't use those base wads from wadder's site... they are vc/wiiware templates and they won't fit the purpose here... Either use a plain homebrew channel's wad or take a game channel with usb loader already created... they are here and there...
    2. Already answered...
    3. The rest of the input I guess is already filled when you make a choice in USB Loader Preset...

    There is no relation between the loader you installed into your system and the loader this application uses...
    what this app does is :

    1. Extract the base wad (it provides the proper structure of the wad being built along with nand loader)
    2. Replace the banner in the extracted wad with the one from the game disc you chose
    3. Replace the dol in the extracted wad with the loader that comes with the program
    4. Patch the loader so that it boots your chosen game
    5. Pack the wad again changing it's title id

    that's it...

    Wbfs manager's channel creation is now a bit old... it doesn't have alt-dol supporting loaders or a loader with ios selection...

    for ios selection there is the Loadstructor and for complete alt-dol support you can use Crap http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=151174
