    Since Capcom shut off the MH3 servers, I've been trying to find a way to install the Monster Hunter Tri expansion pack (found here http://monsterhunter3expansions.weebly.com/index.html ) so I can play the online content offline. The directions listed on the site are as follows:

    This is fine except I don't have Windows, I have a mac, and I can't use wiiscrubber. I assume this is doable with wiimms ISO tools, but I have no idea where to begin. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks for pointing to this valuable mod.

    You're right, it's possible to patch iso/wbfs by wit. I've done it in Windows but it's must be doable by the same way in Mac, Linux or whatever:
    1. put wit & iso to the same directory
    2. Expand iso to temp folder by running next command:
      Code:
      wit extract -s ./ -1 -n RMHE08 . mhtri.d --psel=DATA -ovv
    3. copy modified files from mod to the appropriate places in the "mhtri.d"
    4. Compile new wbfs image by running next command:
      Code:
      wit copy -s mhtri.d "Monster Hunter Tri [RMHE08].wbfs" -ovv --boot-id=RMHE08 --disc-id=RMHE08 --tt-id="RMHE" --wbfs-id=RMHE08 --name "Monster Hunter Tri"

    By the way, there is update at the author's site (http://monsterhunter3expansions.weebly.com/) — version 0.60.

    Changelog:
    1. Added levelling info to the quest list document
    2. High rank monsters have been made a little more difficult / have more HP. Except Rathalos in 'Run Down a Rathalos', his level has been decreased according to the feedback I received.
    3. Hot Deal quest is now completed
    4. Modified the quest 'Festival of Fear'. Hopefully the second stage of the quest now activates. This is currently the only Jhen quest I am working on, no guarantees that 'Rumble in the Desert' will work yet.

    Well, I never could get wit to do the job, so I used linux and wine to run wiiscrubber. Worked great. Not sure why the commands you posted didn't work. Thanks for your help though, I appreciate it.
