    Everyone knows how it is boring to copy one by one his saves from his wii
    I'm just asking someone to do a cool homebrew very usefull

    I'll describe it:
    - It allows you to copy every saves from your Wii, to your SD card, even if they are protected
    - It also allow you a second mode, in which you check a box of every save you want to backup

    Same thing in the other way:
    - Copy every of your saves from your sd card to your wii, checking if the save from this wii is older newer etc
    - Allows you to check boxes to choose the one you want to copy

    Thank you if you want to program this

    Just let it know here

    I am not sure but when Foresaken's CSM gets released, it is supposed to remove copy protection on the saves. I know that would not answer all of your problems but it would help.

    dj.. the gayfish is NTSC, your PAL, so how did you run it?

    Did you brick block, or run through gecko etc?

    Also did it move no copy files?

    C'mon young man more info [​IMG]

    Info on this disc is rare, so if you could post as much intel as you can then it would be real cool m8.

    I never bothered getting it, in fear of a brick, now my drives dead, but I'll get another soon now christmas is passed and my local store might actually get one in.

    What else did you play about with on the disc?

    yeah its NTSC, and im PAL.... but i just simply booted it with a certain loader, nope Gecko cannot boot it, soon as you put in the wii (modded) your wii turns blank, you need to be in a specific loader before hand to boot it up, its something i'm not really allowed to mention about on this forum so they're the hints.....

    also i just do a full Settings/Saves dump to SD usually 85mb mine is......then if if ever i was to format again, i can restore all my saves back in one go from SD [​IMG]
    takes around 10 minutes [​IMG]

    I scanned through, but i just saved all when formatted, boot her up and restore all [​IMG] man id be gutted if i lost my Mario kart and COD5 saves...

    i don't know what install dev cirts are, i didn't touch that.....?

    On a modded wii, will i need to go through a damned loader, or the disc will be fine loaded by himself?
    Also i have questions!

    I choose the option, save all
    Will it be archived like in a rar, or placed as it would be (in private/etc) if i'd done it through the wii menu?
    I'm running into pal too

    no it does one full dump (1 file only) to SD root of SD card!!!!
    also it should autoboot itself, if you end up with a blank screen, power wii off, and use all the loaders that are around to test which boots it, make sure to be in the loader before inserting the disc!, that's all im saying!!!!

    Thanks m8 [​IMG]

    Not got my wii drive repaired yet, but when I do I'll get that and have a looky...hehe.

    I'm really curious now as you say it does everything in one, so I'm dying to take one of them files apart and examine whats copied over hmmm.

    I'm 110% sure I know the loader you mean [​IMG]

    I don't use loaders, but there is one I've taken an interest in [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ok, so everything will go into one single file
    So i think that you get the interest of creating a such homebrew, isn't it?
    I'm gonna try to tell Waninkoko [​IMG]
