    AS WITH BEFORE READ THE FULL GUIDE AND END NOTES BEFORE INSTALLATION OR BELIEVE ME YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS OK.!!


    Requirements:

     PAL or NTSC-U Wii [No Others Have Been Tested]

     SD Card (of at least 256 MB) [formatted to FAT]

     The SoftMii Pack, unpacked to your SD card ROOT

     Twilight Princess Retail

     Internet Connection For Wii (For Full Set up)


    THINGS TO NOTE AND FIX IN NEXT RELEASE
    1. in the hacks.ini you need to press return before the [BGM MUSIC] part to drop it to a new line so theres no new code.
    2. Preloader 0.25 shipped install of 0.26 so the code remains the same.

    its a standard softmii image, however we have included the brick proof system mod tool that will make it safe for anyone to make changes to their system menu. use our program to install your changes, if they fail simply re-run the program to install the original menu and back up and running. no longer possible to brick from editing system menu files. Also with Wad install no longer needed you can do this without loosing preloader or region free changes to your menu.

    I will be doing a write up tomorrow after i get some sleep explaining the steps to use this tool. With our tool and icefires soon to be released healthii, within a week noobs will be able to safely make and change healthscreens.
    I will also be releasing a sneak peak of some other changes to the system menu i am working on, such as custom cursors, custom press A to continue text still animated, new disc images in disc channel, replacement of blank channel images, message board styles etc.

    You'll find out very shortly. It's being Upped as we speak. It's a Mario/Credits/Tribute screen. Many more to come. Plus some other special stuff.

    Will be posting about features regularly.

    Also note that the 00000042.app is the filename for NTSC systems and 00000045.app for PAL systems.
    those are the .app files you install from root of SD card with the custom installer. To be on the safe side you should maybe move other .app files from the SD root until you get the hang of the tool.

    Also note that all of us testing this have installed bad 0000004x.app files which caused black screen soft brick during testing phase but were easily able to recover by booting to HBC through PreLoader and installing a good 0000004x.app again.

    I'll be posting files tomorrow with custom changes as well as the original nintendo files so you can safely go back to a stock menu without having to upgrade or use ARC.

    If you are aiming for multi-language instructions, I'm willing to do the translation into Dutch.
    Let me know, if needed.

    This way I can also contribute to the scene [​IMG]

    True, very true...
    But I'll write that up as a 'no' since you didn't answer my question.
    In case you do want it, just pm me.
