    ShowMiiWads is a 'WAD File Manager' for Windows.
    The .NET-Framework 2.0 is required to run this application!
    The (Common-)Key.bin is required for most Wad Editing features.
    Please report your bugs, suggestions and everything else to: leathl [at] gmail [dot] com
    You can simply translate the application by editing the example.slang, if you
    want to have your translation included into the program, mail me..

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    !Important Note!

    I decided to release this version and head over to the next one.
    Some of the new features are untested! Use them on your own risk and be sure
    to have BootMii/boot2 with a NAND Backup!
    I'm currently working on my own wad class that will be used in the next version
    instead of external apps. I hope to get rid of problems that prevent some
    features to work for some people (at least everything worked on my 3 pc's...)

    Good work !

    This is my wish list:

    see/extract a preview of pictures/animation (banner ?) for channels
    see/extract app for channels
    see/change path for forwarders

    1) preview of pictures may or may not come in the future [​IMG] animation definitely not (except i had a code to play them, but there is none i think [​IMG] )
    2) i don't get your drift.. extraction of wad files is possible (including app files of course), and why preview them [​IMG]
    3) you can't just change the path of a forwarder .dol. you'd need to insert a new .dol to forward to the new location.. will be possible in future i think

    thanks for your suggestions [​IMG]

    I'm going to have fun with this. I've wondered how long till some form of PC Wad Manager is created, I didn't realize I had so many XD

    My only requests are;
    a way to preview the banner; not a big deal but I'm sure many others would agree [​IMG]
    Have it search within folders. I have my wads categorized (/Wads/Forwarders, /Wads/Channels/, /Wads/System Menus/, /Wads/NES, etc) and I would like to just have it find all of them if I tell it to look in /Wads. Also not a big deal at all, but it might be nice for someone in my position.

    yeah previewing of banners and icons is a good idea, but i'm focused in my wad class to get rid of most external tools first [​IMG]
    for your folders, just select them in windows explorer and drag them onto the application, it will add them all [​IMG]
    if i got some time, i will add support for subfolders, so you can just drag your /Wad/ folder to make things easier [​IMG]

    I didn't try it yet, but I would like to add a suggestion too.

    It's great to have "install to NAND" now, I'll try it.
    Could you add a NAND emulation browser, to see installed wiiware/VC games, and an option to uninstall them ?

    Thank you for your time spent on this program [​IMG]

    hey, that's a nice idea [​IMG]
    i'll have a look at it, once i'm finished with the wad class.
    thanks [​IMG]

    Install to NAND seems to delete my common-key.bin every time I use it. Other than that, works great.

    great to hear that it works [​IMG]
    the common-key.bin is copied to the application directory when needed, and deleted afterwards [​IMG]
    will be changed in the next release.

    Very, useful app. Nice.

    Oh, and you should add other features... like... Banner editing... Instead of the U8 Crap you have to go through to edit the banner...

    This is a picture of the new NAND Browser (ShowMiiNand) that will be integrated in the new Version of ShowMiiWads.
    You'll see all Titles installed on your NAND Backup and you'll be able to pack them to a wad file (currently in work [​IMG])
