    I presume 0.1alpha3 is the current version. I moved from 0.1alpha0 to 3 and feels like a downgrade as ogm locks it up now [​IMG]

    Seems like some noteworthy changes. The screen tearing always bothered me and changing the aspect ratio is nice. Time to try it out.

    When I see that name, I always think "What the, have they created a Xbox emulator for the Wii!?!?!" before I remember what it actually is.

    Too bad version 0.1alpha3 still can't be made into a channel. Is this confirmed for the new version?

    hopefully, GeeXbox is miles better than Mplayer005, also restarts wii, so will be smart if can be made into a channel, hope someone manages it. [​IMG]

    I also tried that! doltool3 convert but it wont load the dol in the homebrew channel i tested it before bothering with injectawad to no avail..if someone could actually COMPILE THE CODE IN DOL FORMAT i think that it would be easy enough from that point to inject the channel but for those who are saying WTF please keep this in mind

    Injectawad v3 ONLY INJECTS DOL TO WAD it however cannot inject ELF to WAD (or from what i have used of it i dont think that it can correct me if i am wrong) though if it COULD convert elf to DOL on the fly then convert said result to wad that would be a feature worth having in Injectawad like a Merger of the DOLTOOL and INJECTAWAD into one usefull application [​IMG] with a GUI like injectawads [​IMG] just a thought

    so in short without a DOL file that WORKS in the homebrew channel of GeeXbox we cannot Inject a ELF to a WAD [​IMG]

    IF someone manages to compile a working DOL file for Geexbox i think i can convert it to a wad as can ANYONE with experience using injectawad [​IMG] but as is CBT's point is that a elf cant be converted to a wad file yet [​IMG]


    that being said i dont understand why Linux apps cannot be a channel SO LONG AS THE FILES ARE PRESEANT ON YOUR SD IT SHOULD WORK!??! huh? or could he mean a linux app cannot be ran as a DOL? maybe?

    BTW the ELF file i converted to dol was
    with GeeXboX 0.1 alpha 4 version

    boot.elf 2,338 kb original with 0.1 alpha 4 version packaged (the newest as of this post)

    the resulting file after running doltool: (to do this put the elf in the same folder as the doltool.exe then go to your Strart menu and click RUN...type CMD and hit enter....in the CMD window type: "cd (the name of the directory the exe and elf file are in)
    hit enter...now type: "doltool.exe -d boot.elf" this being invoked prompted a screen that says "Converted Elf to DOL successfully" sure enough a boot.dol file will appear in that directory but did it convert properly is the question?

    Boot.dol 2,270 kb (did we loose something in the conversion?)

    i then test this DOL file and the homebrew channel says error " This is not a valid Wii application" it cannot load it [​IMG] seems the conversion itself goes bad could we need a DOLTOOL update maybe? So short of re-compiling the whole thing in DOL format we will need a update for elf to dol conversionBecause as you can see we cant bother thinking about injecting a dol untill we find one that actually works! [​IMG]

    maybe if someone contacted the author of the app it would clear some things up?

    you donĀ“t need to test it .. geexbox uses a filesystem image which is in a file on your sdcard it will never install on the wii....

    so what quake uses a ide folder thats required to be on your sd card and it works as a channel....i still dont understand why if the file iis present on the sd card it could'nt be done? and that does not explain why it cant be converted to DOL with dol tool either [​IMG]
