    I have a retail copy of Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga, and I noticed there are files in the disc are .txt's that seem to have the settings of the characters and are rather simple, (say things 'force' and 'choke') and I know there is already a custom character creator in the game, but there is more to do and allow. I extracted a wbfs file with CFG but I need to get the files out of it. I got a folder to ISO program, a wbfs to ISO and backwards converter, but I cannot get the files with 7Zip or any other tools I know of. I tried WIT (Wiimm's ISO Tools), but it keeps trying to save the files as .gcm's and all as the same file name. When I copy with WiiXplorer, it stays at 0.00 percent completed.

    EDIT: I've also tried Riivolution file patching by editing a Mkwii file patcher xml, and that failed.

    wit is the tool you want. Dolphin (the emulator) can also extract files if you open the game's properties, but Dolphin has no way to build it back into an ISO/WBFS.

    To extract run
    Code:
    wit extract PATH_TO_ISO PATH_TO_FOLDER
    To rebuild into a new ISO run
    Code:
    wit copy PATH_TO_FOLDER PATH_TO_NEW_ISO

    It turns out I was trying to use wit incorrectly, so I tried the way you suggest, but instead it would create all the folders of the ISO, but no files. Unfortunately Dolphin decided today was the day to freeze on startup so I reinstalled it but it still freezes.

    Turns out Dolphin was just having lag problems, but when I extracted it, edited the files, (I made very simple edits) I compiled the ISO with Folder2Iso but when I ran it with Dolphin it said that the ISO wasn't a Wii ISO.
