Hi, here a tutorial of how to download/compile sonic mania for your wii!
IMG_20221005_181917.jpg

First of all, you can download the non plus version of it here: (Github link of the port), download it, put your data.rsdk/data folder of sonic mania, and copy the "SonicMania" folder in the folder of your sd/usb called "apps", and open it in homebrew launcher, all done!

Now, if you want compile it to have sonic mania plus like me (I make it in windows), i'm going to recommend to do it using DevKitPro and putting the wii dev and gamecube dev option only on it, and latter, open msys2, and type and install:

Make:
pacman -S make

Git:
pacman -S git


and now, put some commands in the archive called "Pacman.conf", this is the commands (This can be unnecessary):

[dkp-libs]
Server = https://pkg.devkitpro.org/packages

[dkp-windows]
Server = https://pkg.devkitpro.org/packages/windows/$arch/


and now, type and install this:

pacman -Syu

pacman -Syu wii-dev


and latter, download this script: (Script download link), and put it in "c/" (The root of your sdd/hdd), and now in msys2, put

cd /c

./ManiaWiiQuickBuild.sh


If all works correctly, it will start copying and moving sonic mania and rsdkv5 decomp files, and then it will start compiling it.
Don't worry if you get an error or if it takes a while, it's normal.

Now, the files can be here:

If this didn't work for you, i recommend you go to ask in the official server where is who made this port, Mephiles:
(Here the server link)

If you want to talk to me, im "Spanish Freddy" in that server.
Thx for read this, see you guys!​

Hi can somebody help? The 240p mode is not 100% compatible with pal tvs. The author said this:
The way this works is by forcing the current Wii render mode to NTSC 240P. Unsure if that is what would be causing the issue on your set but ik others that have tried this on PAL tubes without issue. One thing you can try is compiling your own copy with a small change - in RSDKv5/RSDK/Graphics/GX/GXRenderDevice.cpp, change line 74 from "vmode = &TVNtsc240Ds;" to "vmode = &TVPal264Ds;" (264 lines, maybe your set will like this better) or "vmode = &TVMPal240Ds;". Make sure not to include the quotation marks. Then just make that your ini file is set up as per usual. Hope this helps!

In what part of the tutorial do you have to modify this ? Thanks in advance

When I try to download devkitPro, it says "Your internet connection seems to be not permitted or dropped out! Please reconnect and click Retry to resume installation." And every time I click retry it says the same thing. I don't have a VPN on and my Wi-Fi is on, any fix?
Edit: Never mind, figured it out

    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado

    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.
