RiiConnect24 Patcher v1.4.0

KcrPL released this 2 hours ago

Welcome to the RiiConnect24 Patcher! This patcher will do everything for you, all you need to do is sit back and relax :)

For Windows please download RiiConnect24Patcher.bat
For UNIX System users (MacOS, Linux) unfortunately - our bash patcher is not working at the moment. However, we've prepared a Windows PE Image that you can boot that will allow you to use RiiConnect24 Patcher without the need of Windows. More info here.

The patching process takes only few minutes depending on your CPU :)

Changelog:
Windows version v1.4.0

  • We can now patch Forecast Channel on Wii U.
  • Wiimmfi Patcher's have been fixed. This includes:
    • Checking if the game is actually there.
    • Copying games.
    • Checking if the patching has been successful or not.
    • You can now read the output of the patcher in case anything goes wrong.
    • You can now choose if you want to make a backup of the original games.
    • Fixed a bug where it could enter a bad path and break things.
  • Fixed an issue where text sometimes would be incorrectly displayed on the error screen.

I know I sound like a troll here but I'm really confused as to why anyone would want this?? The last place I would check for a weather forecast would be vWii for crying out loud..... I didn't even use it on my original Wii back in the day!

Just me though and of course its really good work by the dev but I can't get my head round it!

Still seems pointless to me but I do stress that's just me! I hope someone gets use of it!

Iirc, did the channel not sync up with some games to mirror your city's actual weather in game? Living in Scotland, that is a really stupid idea.... Oh look Mario... Its FUCKING raining again! :rofl:

That being said.... No rain, no rainbows ;)

    imo without at least a 30lbs dumbbell you won't get a lot of use out of em - and these max out at like 10lbs for each arm

  • x65943 @ x65943:
    oh I see you actually get to pick which set you want - so you could buy the 88 lb one

  • x65943 @ x65943:
    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    You aren't going to the right gym if you need to wear clothes

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    Ball sweat drops down like normal sweat if your balls are always dry I'd recommend a doctor

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
