I tried to apply this patch earlier, I never used wit tools before but I have used cmd before with other tutorials, however these instructions don’t make it very clear what to do, I already ripped main.dol with wiiscrupper and I can inject it back no problem, is there any other way to patch it like with DKCR? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

You mess that up big lol
You don't rip or unpack the ISO in any way at all.
I will show you what you do, I thought the instructions were pretty clear aside from trying to work out which tools to get as the OP does not link directly to the download just the place to get the tool.

1. You download Wit for Windows, and SZS Wiimms Toolset for Windows.
2. You will need to run the installer for both and then reboot PC as they created the environment variables which you can run in a terminal window.
3. Put the contents of SMG2-GamePadCC.zip and your Game ISO into a folder.

4. In the address bar at the top of your folder window type CMD and press enter.
Screenshot 2022-3452523504-26 172024.jpg


5. In the now open terminal window type wit x SB4E01.wbfs Galaxy2GamePad and press enter.
SMG2 is your game's filename. I suggest you don't have a file name with spaces, I renamed mine to SMG2 from SMG2 (USA).

6. Then Run wit dolpatch Galaxy2GamePad\sys\main.dol xml=SMG2-ExtraControllers-WiiU.xml
Screenshot 2022-04-26 173242.jpg



7. Now choose which controller config you wish on the OP as you can see there are two layouts you may choose so run whichever layout you wish the commands are below.

RUN ONLY ONE OF THESE
wstrt patch Galaxy2GamePad\sys\main.dol --add-section SB4E01-SMAS.gct
wstrt patch Galaxy2GamePad\sys\main.dol --add-section SB4E01-Nvidia.gct


Example with SMAS.gct layout.

8. Now last we have to pack the game back up again so you can inject it or get it onto your console however you see fit. So now were run this in the terminal wit copy Galaxy2GamePad Galaxy2GamePad.wbfs
It will take a little bit to finish so when you see the prompt appear ready for input of commands it is done just be patient.

Now You are Done!

Hopefully, this assists you and others who don't quite understand what to do.


EDIT
If you intend to inject this title into the Wii U system menu then use these settings!

Enable Classic Controller is a super important step.

I followed the instructions and everything seems to work fine, now to inject it and test it on Wii U.

Edit: so after injecting and installing to the wii u when I click on the game it asks for the controller and I click yes then it reboots to wii mode but then gets stuck on black screen, what am I doing wrong?

I can confirm my vwii works fine and installing injects I got online like nintendont and emulators all work and following the instructions above I got all results like the screenshots, it’s probably the injection process...

Edit 2: Seems like the issue is with the game itself, I tested the patched file with USB Loader and got a black screen, tested again this time the original file and it ran fine, I most likely messed something up during applying the patch, I’m not sure what it is, I kept getting the same results as you did.

Really unsure.. because I patched a non-scrubbed USA copy of Galaxy 2 for Wii, not the Wii U.. with the method I expressed in earlier postings. My Game was WBFS format, to begin with not ISO.

All I did was rename my ISO to match the instructions in the OP but I made a new patch for the example I posted for you, double-check everything is in the right spot and you have the and your game works with CFW modded Wii U

Use UWUVCI AIO to make the inject.
I injected mine into Rythem Heaven USA

Man, I wish someone would do the same for Punch-Out!! and release a hack with the Nvidia controller mapping to replace the need for a Wiimote to navigate the menu.

Idk what to say, I did the same exact thing, Mario Galaxy 2, USA, unscrubbed, wbfs format, tested earlier with USB Loader and runs fine, I did everything in your tutorial, got the same exact results as the pictures you provided... I was sure I got it working but when testing it gives me black screen...

I appreciate your help, though...

@Vague Rant... I think maybe a link to this post on the OP would be a good idea for anyone else struggling if you can.

Little note regarding step 5, i found that where "X" is after "wit"... X doesn't do anything, i had to type "extract".

I don't believe that's what @sonictopfan problem is however as it gave me a direct cannot open file error when i typed "x". Maybe worth mentioning tho.

Oh this is super cool. I hope that it branches out into other Wii games so I can get more (lazy) use out of my Wii U.

I followed the steps on the OP coupled with the guude/help pages on the wiimms tools site but the guide above is well written for the steps.

The only thing I can think of is to try another copy of SMG2 from another source. The copy you have may work when loaded on its own however if its not a clean iso this will cause problems when converting or patching. I have seen that before with a few titles and when grabbing another one it seems to work.

Awesome mod... This may be off topic, but is there any chance of this mod working on other Wii game titles that only work w/ the Wii remote such as Donkey Kong Country Returns?

That might be it...
X works for me, but I can't say it works for everyone I did use an X64 build of the two tools needed for Windows not a Linux distro build or anything like that.

Exactly what I said at some point...
I have run into issues where modded games work fine in emulation but when put onto console they just royally cause a pain in my behind and I have to hard-reset, seems patches mostly work best when using the full clean ISO hence I added the parts about NOT using a scrubbed ISO as that has partitions missing.
