Is there a tutorial out there on how to use freethewads?
Step 1: Create a folder on the root of C: (name it temp for arguments sake)
Step 2: Put the freethewads.exe, the cygcrypto-0.9.8.dll, the cygwin1.dll and the wad you want to 'free' into that folder
Step 3: Open Command Prompt
Step 4: Type cd C:\Temp\ hit enter
Step 5: Type freethewads title.wad a
Step 6: Choose a region ('3' is free)
Step 7: Confirm it y/n
im confused at step 5 exactly what do i type in?
freethewads.exe (name of wad).wad without ( ) and then the letter a after that hit enter
ok so i copy that file that was used or did it create another one?
It patches the one you typed in - just shove it on your SD card or however you boot up wads and install it
your instructions are flawed, it involves much more than that. for example you have to type CD\ to get the C directory. i'm still trying to figure out how to run the freethewads files as they won't run, i'm guessing because it's in a folder the dos command doesn't like folders
His instructions look fine from here.
this seemed to work fine for me.
only problem is you can't choose the region so i don't know what region it is, using the other guys method always makes the dos command say "the filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect" everytime i attempted to do it via his method, the other instructions i found worked first time, says it all really.
As you can see no problems
That's because it's not working as some Windows needs "cd /d C:\Temp\". >_>
just because it works for you it doesn't mean it will work for everybody, anyways i ain't going to argue, it just didn't work end off, couldn't care less if you don't belive me or not.
Your attitude sucks - just leave it at that
whoa, stop fighting.
jalaneme, what step that doesn't work for you?
has all the file included in the folder that you go to in the cmd?
I, like jalaneme, also had troubles with those instructions. Although it may work on some systems it didn't work on mine so the instructions are flawed. For starters, Windows is installed on my D drive and so I had to switch to the C drive using that "/d" command that someone mentioned before. Even then once it was in "C:\Temp\", Freethewads failed to boot for reasons I'm not sure about. Everything was correct as it said in the instructions and I tried both "freethewads title.wad a" and "freethewads.exe title.wad a". Neither worked, so I tried the method jalaneme mentioned and that worked for me. I'm not sure where the problem is but it isn't freethewads. Thanks for posting some instructions anyway.
It's more of a problem that people don't know how to use the command line, and don't care to learn.
If you're on a different drive letter, just type X: (C:, A:, B:, whatever letter you want) and press enter to change drive.
Don't put quotes around the executable, just the arguments, and only if they have spaces.
eg. "freethewads title.wad a" won't work.
freethewads "C:\Temp\title.wad" a will work.
can i use this tool to convert VC star fox PAL (lylat wars ) to run on my NTSC wii - will it work with no glitches/crashes? what about saves do they work ok too?
So is a new file created? Or is the file that i dragged into freethewads the "free" file?
