Hi there @FoxySonicMaster108

Nice to see you again, it's been a looong time ago since last time we saw ourselves on GBAtemp.

You need to make a DOL/ELF forwarder for your boot.elf using @XFlak's ModMii Forwarder Builder, then insert it into an AHBPROT enabled WAD.

Not sure if this helps but you can take a look at this tutorial, that uses the same procedure i tell you (check the THIRD STEP and SIXTH STEP): https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...ls-of-your-favorite-retro-games-d-wii.602640/

Hope this helps :)

PD: I've answered one of your (very old) questions, here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/32x-virtual-console-games.556484/

Cheers :D

@FoxySonicMaster108 any progress?

Did one of my links below i've provided work?
Have you tried downloading and trying/using the already compiled version of SRB2Wii instead?:

DOL version:
https://mb.srb2.org/threads/srb2-console-ports-info-ps3-r6752.19062/

ELF versions:
https://mb.srb2.org/threads/srb2wii-thread-v2-0-0-rc4-news-update-27-11-2010-10-46.15378/
https://gbatemp.net/download/srb2wii.22961/

(not sure if these links are allowed but i'm putting it here by the way)

Cheers ;)

late response, but the dol version doesn't seem to work, it just crashes for me.

@FoxySonicMaster108
Have you downloaded and installed correctly SRB2 Wii according to this quote?

I'm sure you guys are well aware of this port. Lately, however, I've been focusing my developments on a new version of SRB2Wii, one that directly uses libogc rather than running through Wii Linux. Alam has helped me debug this version and now its almost complete, and is much faster than the Wii Linux version, however has more problems. And the best thing is, the Wii target has been merged into all the SVN branches, so any branch on the Public SRB2MODs can be compiled for the Wii! Including SRB2Cineblast, XSRB2 and everything else.

Download:
http://alam.srb2.org/SRB2_MOB/Wii/Release/srb2wii.zip
http://repos.srb2.org/srb2ports/music.dta

All you need to do to run it is unzip the above compressed file on your SD card root directory, and place the SRB2 data files (minus your music.dta, add the music.dta in the download link which SRB2Wii needs because otherwise it won't play music correctly) in the /srb2wii folder (this can coexist with an SRB2Wii/Linux installation if you rename either one's /apps folder). You may or may not need a keyboard to have full control (read: get out of it), I'm not sure. The default setup is just the Wii Remote, but if you get into the joystick options, you can choose between Wii Remotes 1 through 4 (Wiimote only at the moment, Wiimote + Nunchuk is not completely done) and the GameCube controller. Two player splitscreen should be supported, netgames aren't, screenshots are, and SRB2Wii is fast enough to run most parts of ERZ2 with no massive speed hits. Enjoy! =)
EDIT: SRB2Wii needs the data files of SRB2 to be placed, i don't know where i can find these, sorry :(

@FoxySonicMaster108

I have news about SRB2Wii...

The required data files of Sonic Robo Blast 2 (SRB2) that need to be placed in the sd:/srb2wii/ folder can be downloaded here:
https://www.srb2.org/download/historic-downloads/

Try first using the files of the v2.0.6 release, if it doesn't work try using the v2.0.0 one.

Tell me if that works for you, and happy New Year 2022. ;) (Sorry for the late response :P )
