(if it says that the file is not available, keep refreshing the page)

More information...

mightychannels.jpg


Mighty Channels is the successor of Triiforce mrc. The GUI was rewritten from scratch and now it looks better than ever.
Remember: this is only a beta. Most features could be broken.

Features:
* New minimalist GUI with images
* Sort games as you want with B button
* Sort games by system with 2 button
* Configure games with 1 button
* Downloads channel images automatically from wiitdb.com
* It includes simple but useful NAND management functions
* Custom skin support
* Creates savegames for games that need them (Bit Trip series)
* Sets Apploader by default for games that need them (ArtStyle series and others)
* Requires Waninkoko cIOS rev21 or rev21 d2x (recommended)

Thanks marc_max, excited for this! Quick question though

Does this work with Rev21 or need Rev17?
I prefer to do tests with rev17 because I know what worked before.

If you are going to report tests with rev21 please mention it. I haven't installed rev21 yet and I don't know what works and what doesn't.

wow can't wait to try this out later. I've been hearing about this "Mighty" application for a long time now, and wasn't sure if it was gonna get released or not. Thankfully it's available now. Bye Bye Tiiforce_MRC.

Thank you for this app great work

i think you should make it /nand/import,meta,shared1 etc. It looks kinda messy if all the folders are on the root of the sd/usb.

* you can select the IOS to use, just use HBC parameters in meta.xml. example: --ios=250

Can someone give me an example of this because it doesnt work for me...want to use 248

Hi!

Can I only use my USB Device for this?

Or are the config files always saved on SD:\... ?

I would like to use only my USB.

Good Job!

@LocoRoco, here is an example of a meta.xml file with arguments (HBC 1.07+ needed) :

CODE

ÂÂÂÂMighty Channels
ÂÂÂÂbeta1
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ201012280000
ÂÂÂÂmarc_max
ÂÂÂÂWiiware/Virtual Console Loader
ÂÂÂÂ

ÂÂ--ios=250
ÂÂ--auto=USB




marc_max, thanks for this nice loder.

ps : when using argument --auto=USB, Mighty Channels loads my REAL NAND.
EDIT : hmmm sorry, it happens only when using --ios=250 (I have cIOSx rev21 base IOS57 in that slot)

That depends on the cIOS.

If you use USB emulation all configuration files and images are stored on USB.

But before loading the real nand it shows you a message telling that it can't enable NAND emulation, right?

Nice work and good GUI. I'm busy testing out some games (on rev17), but thus far, haven't come across a game that works on triiforce MRC that doesn't work on this.

I second this request. In addition to not having to worry about all those folders, it also means you could use the same emulated nand for mighty channels as for uloader.


(or am I really the only one who has 2 emulated nands on his hard drive?)

No message, it loads automatically channels on my real NAND

it's so fast to boot, maybe this message is displayed so quickly that I can't read it ?

Possible to lose the side bars?
Are you talking about the sidebars of channel images, right?

Well... These images are hosted on wiitdb.com, and I think the sidebar is added automatically to every uploaded image.

They also host alternative images without sidebar for some games. Triiforce mrc could download both types of images, but as I wanted to make the process easier and faster, Mighty Channels only downloads the standard (sidebar) images. Main problem is that now images with and without sidebar are different, the best solution I think is to let users only upload one image and then the server script copies it to two images: one with sidebar and one without sidebar (untouched). I already sent a PM to wiitdb.com admins asking some things, let's wait for their answer.

You can find a pack of my old images here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=OB1YDCDN

In my case, I prefer to keep the nand at the root, because it's also compatible with SNEEK

But as I said, this is a cIOS thing.

thanks for this, MarcMax=)
ive been a long time user of mrc, and this new vc/ww backup loader looks great!

so, how do i add a skin to this? maybe im daft, but i didnt see any info on where to put the .png files/folder.

also, just noticing here that the 9 ww/vc images are out of line to the left a bit (really close to the 'back' arrow, and far from the 'forward' arrow)
