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 ;)

    Red rover red rover send deeze nuts on over

    Yeah they should send something with 5000 HP over there and REALLY tear it up.

    Around the Moon in 80 hours.

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Tesla really needs to step their game up if they wanna tear up tracks on the moon
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    The problem being is no electric chargers within 20 miles of each other are on the moon

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    yeah send a cybertruck up there

    it looks like something from space anyway

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    just need to add folding solar panels to it
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Jut have it nuclear powered.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Like submarines.
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    submarines are quite a lot bigger

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i don't think we have reactors small enough to fit in a car yet
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But the generator itself is relatively small.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And in any case you couldn't get proper cooling on the Moon so a powerful nuclear generator is out of the question.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    just run it at night
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and run on battery power at day

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Cooling issues.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the moon is like -170C at night i'm sure that's enough
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the only way to take advantage of that cold is to burrow cooling fins into the ground.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Contrary to popular belief, the vacuum of space is not cold, it's nothing.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Heat does radiate from warm objects but the effectiveness of radiation cooling is negligible.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You need a medium to take up the heat and take it away.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the denser the medium, with a higher specific heat capacity, the better.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    This is why water cooling is better than air cooling.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And why cooling is a major problem in space.
