I used smashstack to put homebrew channel on vWii. Everything worked. I installed The Homebrew Channel just fine but when i start the hombrew channel it doesnt show the apps/homebrew that i have put on the SD card... Why is that happening? The SD card is not the problem cuz i used it to install smashstack. And yes i did put the apps in private/wii/app folder.

BTW its an 1GB sandisk.

I'm asking if that's the architecture you have. You can replace "any_folder" with something else, but the rest needs to be set up like that.


So for example xyzzy folder has a boot.dol file, icon.png file and meta.xml file. Should i put the .dol, .png and the .xml file all in seperate folders? or am i completely wrong?

The apps go in /apps. Not in /private/wii/app. That location is for save data from official games and such.
Can't believe I was the first one to point that out. JoostinOnline, i am disappoint.

Really?? So i have to have 3 xyzzy files in the apps folder like this SD:\private\wii\apps\xyzzy\boot.dol
\xyzzy\meta.xml
\xyzzy\icon.png

Or do i have to have 3 apps folders in the wii folder like this SD:\private\wii\apps\xyzzy\boot.dol
\apps\xyzzy\meta.xml
\apps\xyzzy\icon.png
?

That might not have been in the original version (it was edited). If it was, then I blame Canada or something. :shy:

@OP They DO NOT go in the SD:\private\wii\apps folder.

no apps go in the private folder

(sd card):\apps\(app name)\(files for app)


SD card = whatever drive the SD card shows as

apps = leave that name as is

App Name = whatever that folder was in the compressed file, usually already in an "apps" folder........different apps get different folders

files for app = .dol, .png, and .xml files that go to said app

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    @SG854 not only that look at how much you get on the sony side for around the same price

    game pass costs more but you also get a huge amount of games and they're not drip fed

    nintendo's offering was the worst deal but nobody cared because it was $20

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    now that it's $50, it's a really bad deal

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    also costing only $20 kinda excuses the poor online services a little bit, $50 demands better quality online

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    they should've just offered a better service to begin with and charged $50 from the beginning
