    ...It doesn't matter. We refuse to help anyone following guides not from our forum. We endorse our guide, or guides we found good enough to repost here.

    No others.

    I haven't bothered to check the entire guide, but I get where it's getting at:

    1. dump nand
    2. install some extra games on the dumped nand (if necessary)
    3. do some stuff with an app called wad2iso
    4. ???
    5. PROFIT!!!


    I love how guides like that tell every step on the way without telling any reasoning behind it.

    Here's the thing: wad2iso is a very nifty program, but its uses are very limited. The isos it creates are nothing more than shortcuts that run a very specific (and outdated) version of triiforce with very specific parameters (eg. which wiiware or VC to run, which IOS it'll use, video mode, language and more of those options).

    In other words: you have to KNOW all these parameters first, or it won't work.

    Here's a test for you: wad2iso needs a \nandgames\Loader.dol file. This dol is actually triiforce. Copy and rename this file to \apps\somefolder\boot.dol and then run it through the HBC. If you followed the previous steps of that guide correctly, it should be able to find your emulated nand and the games on it.

    The hardest part is probably to get the games to actually run. There's a fair number of exception games that simply won't work (check the compatibility guide). Probably more important is the fact that triiforce (and certainly that version) is very picky as to which cIOS it can use. If you can get things to work with recent cIOS'es then you're in luck (I have to admit I have NO IDEA how well the d2x cIOS work with triiforce or wad2iso). But it may be necessary to downgrade your 249 cIOS all the way down to Waninkoko's rev17.


    EDIT: had to search a bit, but information in this thread may be usefull for you as well. [​IMG]
