    If you don't know what RiiFS is, it's a server program made to host files on a PC instead from an SD card in Riivolution.
    More details in
    here.

    Now, this tutorial will tell you how to setup your own private RiiFS server, then we can move on to public.

    1. Go and download RiiFS.exe.
    2. Now place RiiFS in a empty folder
    3. Make an apps folder and put your apps/riivolution folder from your SD card to (insert RiiFS directory)/apps/
    4. Now copy your pack's files and Riivolution XMLs. (riivolution/config/(id4).xml IS NEEDED.)
    5. Now run RiiFS then boot Riivolution. If everything is there, Riivolution should detect the presence of RiiFS and use those files, espeically if you don't have your SD card plugged into your Wii.

    But now, you may say. "But what if I want my friends and such to use my server?"
    Don't worry, we got you covered.

    BUT BEFORE YOU TRY TO MAKE YOUR RIIFS SERVER PUBLIC, MAKE SURE TO PORTFOWARD PORT 1137 1ST, OR ELSE IT WILL NOT WORK.
    But anyways, let's get right in!


    1. You will need to make a RiiFS XML.
    In the "address=" part, go to a site like this and copy the public ipv4 address and put it in the XML right after the "address=" part.
    2. Now tell the receiver to put the XML into SD:/riivolution/ like any other XML and the XML should point Riivolution to your server when Riivo boots.
    3. If you detect the (public) IP of the receiver is asking for files in the console log. That means it worked!

    Congratz! Now you and your friend can play the same riivolution files together as long as the RiiFS.exe program is running.

    And that's it guys. Sorry for making a tutorial for something obscure.
    For the advantages that RiiFS have over SD, you can modify files and maybe even XMLs during gameplay. Super useful for testing.
    Hope all of you guys helped out, Fancy signing out.

    Changelog:
    2.0: Methods thing are gone, now separated between private and public.

    threads detailing on how to use it, like the forms are completely gone. It used to have a forms side. Host a new super mario bros level editor, which is also gone. Going to http://rvultion.net leads to a maintenance which the other parts of the site went down and never came back within a good 7 month period, with the same message. In other words most of that site is dead, and it had it's own forms, which are no longer accessible.
    Edit:
    http://rvlution.net/reggie/ the level editor for nsmbw. Source code is fortunately on github. Compiled binaries of any sort for any os goes to 404. Trying to go to anything other than reggie riivolution and wiki. Will result in the same matience message. To note, it didn't go down all it once. It was first the nsbw depot. Then after a long period of time, the forms went completely down. And then eventually the main site itself.

    Next time, try the Wayback Machine. It was too large to add as an attachment but I uploaded it to my MEGA. Knock yourself out.

    This is the NSMBWii Level Editor.

    Really? Like I said, the hub is down. Forms are down (which told how to use riifs) I already stated earlier that the wiki and some other pages still exist. But most of the site is gone.

    Sorry about that. Tried wayback machine and for some reason it tried claiming the site didn't have any snapshots. Tried it again after some tinkering and it worked.

    Cool, although I will probably never use this in my life.

    @FEF1 That's fine, this tutorial is for people who may want to stream their Riivolution stuff from their PC.
