    How does fFriiDump know what version a wii disc is? example "1.00" and "1.01" etc.

    I cannot find anything at all using trucha signer to view the disc and also searching all the files...

    I can't burn the games and dump it with Friidump again as that causes screwups, as does mounting the ISO. Does Rawdump (that I use to dump to ISO) miss some data or something, like version number? If so does Friidump do the same?

    If anyone can tell me how to find out what version the wii disc is without owning legit disc and beginning the dump process with FriiDump, that would be very helpful!

    - Thankyou

    Well, as I said, I couldn't find a tool that displays the version umber. So I used a hex editor and opened an iso with it. I tried it with Biohazard Umbrella Chronicles JAP.
    Here's a short howto:

    1. get a hex editor. I used xvi32 (google it)
    2. open the iso (this can take a minute)
    3. look at the wiibrew link from above. It says the version is stored at 0x0000000007. So, because the adress numbering starts at 0 and not 1, it is actually located at the eighth hmmm "hex block" (see screenshot). You could also look at the size column at wiibrew and just add the sizes: 1+2+1+2+1+1=8 --> eighth "hex block" in xvi32 [​IMG]

    As you can see, it says 00 which confuses me. I know its in hex, but 00 in hex is still 0 in decimal. Maybe 00 means 1.00? So e.g. 02 would mean 1.2 or 1.02? I don't know...

    Maybe you or someone else can make more sense of it. Maybe try it with a known v1.x game and see what adress 0x0000000007 contains. Good luck!

    lol. i should of updated my post. Between me and the author of the "WUM" program, we have figured out all of this and it has been incorporated into the new version of WUM. Only problem is MySims shows version "97" which is stupid as everything else is "00" and in rare occations "01" and even "02".

    Golden compass showed "02" in hex but the WUM program showed version 1.00 still. Still have to look into it and iron out the bugs but we'll see....

    MySims is really really dodgy ISO
