Can anyone provide info how to make forwarder channels that work with the new hbc 1.08 and ios58.

I want one for genisisplus gx to use dvd ( rightnow only usable from the hbc.
An I want one for snes gx to work with dvd from a forwarder channel.

EDIT: Works!

Thank you FIX94 and the rest, for your great help!

you could use wiimc forwarder source and recompile it for the apps you want (forwarder is in libs folder ) check for the line :

sprintf(filepath, "%s:/apps/wiimc/boot.dol", part[j].mount); ( in the main.c )

replace the path to where is the folder you want :

sprintf(filepath, "%s:/apps/genplusgx/boot.dol", part[j].mount);

after that you have to inject the boot.dol you got in a wad of your choice , i don't test it so i'm not sure it work. just give it a try

you would also need to use a different base wad that has already been modified for direct hardware access. Instead of building your own, just use one of the static base wads from here: http://gbatemp.net/t249210-static-base-wad

so... this is what u should do...
1) Build a new forwarder dol using WiiMC source code or some other apps source code (FYI, latest WiiMC Channel Installer has some issues, so u may want to wait for that to get sorted before modding its source code)
2) Download customize Mii and the static base wad I linked to above
3) Launch customize mii and load the static base wad, then replace the dol with the one from step 1). You can also make some changes to the GFX of the channel, then when you're ready, click "create wad"
4) Profit

I would like one for snes and genesisgxplus.

@Xflak I know where the code is it's in main.c
But i can't download the source. Also do I need more files to compile a forwarder?
Soory if I'm souding dumb.. But I'm new to coding Wii, but I really would like to know.

download tortoise svn and checkout this adress : http://wiimc.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

all instruction and files need for compiling wiimc is here but i don't think you need portlibs for just compiling the forwarder

When running the "make file" I get this:

[email protected] ~
$ "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Bureaublad\Code\Makefile"
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Bureaublad\Code\Makefile: line 4: .SUFFI
XES:: command not found
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Bureaublad\Code\Makefile: line 6: syntax
error near unexpected token `$(strip $(DEVKITPPC)),'
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Bureaublad\Code\Makefile: line 6: `ifeq
($(strip $(DEVKITPPC)),)'

[email protected] ~
$

Am I doing it all wrong?
Thanks for all the help b.t.w.

You don't actually "run the makefile", you need to run the command make within the makefile directory, as explained in the link given above.
Make sure you have installed devkitPPC or you won't be able to compile anything.

I'm getting :

make: *** No rule to make target `C:Documents'. Stop.

You must copy the forwarder folder to C:
That it's "C:\forwarder"
Then compile it again.

copied the file and tried again.

Now I get:

make: Nothing to be done for `c:forwarder'.

Make sure you are using the latest libogc and portlibs...
Oh, and you still have the wiimc logo, take a look into source\images

Oh cool!

I've dowloaded the portlibs allready.
Maybe i have them at the wrong location...
Could you point that out to me?
It's abit unclear to me because I did'nt have a folder named portlib in my devkit directory.

The above is what I am getting....

Also does'nt libogc come with the devkitpro installation?

Really all of you, thank you very much! I've learned a great deal!
