    I've tested and confirmed this is able to launch apps with Access rights set for AHBPROT + DVD.

    Just make sure u insert a dol built from the latest forwarder source for WiiMC, FCEUGX, VBAGX, or SaveGameManagerGX (so far)

    I think WiiXplorer can use it too now.

    do u happen to know if using the WiiMC forwarder source code to build forwarders for all the other apps that support AHBPROT okay?

    For example, is there any reason to use the savegame manager gx forwarder source code when building the forwarder for SG Manager GX? Or can I use the WiiMC source to build the forwarder it and similar apps (I'm just lazy and trying to avoid DLing the source for 10 different forwarders, lol)

    Can't see why it would be a problem.

    THIS IS WHAT WE NEED, MORE STUFF LIKE THIS. YOUR THE MAN, yes, I was just yelling. [​IMG]


    Tested with WiiMC and they are good, insert a dol built from the latest forwarder source for an AHBPROT app.

    WADderBase1 - AHBPROT - WLB1.wad

    WADderBase2 - AHBPROT - WLB2.wad

    WADderBase3 - AHBPROT - WLB3.wad

    It should work fine, provided you change the path.

    Last Q... is it a problem if I create an AHBPROT forwarder channel for an app that has not YET been updated to use AHBPROT rights (in anticipation of when it will)?

    For example, if I create a AHBPROT forwarder channel for dop-mii, will is cause problems when I use the current version of dop-mii which doesn't utilize AHBPROT rights?

    TBH, I think it will NOT be an issue, especially when an IOS reload will remove all those rights anyways.
    What do u guys think?

    Nah, it'll be fine. Exactly the same as loading an app from the latest HBC with tag even if it doesn't need flags.

    It's just best not to really use it if you don't have to. Thngs that only use it for DVD access should be fine, but anything trying to do anything else probably needs quite a lot of testing as yet.

    Great stuff cwstjdenobs [​IMG]

    I was actually gonna be grabbing the source of the wiimc forwarder tonight and changing the path (adding other paths on buttons held etc) and testing if it worked or not. You've just saved me some time [​IMG]

    oooh, if u get this working can u post it up here with source? thx!

    if u want to see my small mod to the source to add a second path, you can find it HERE... probably not that helpful, its only like 3 or 4 lines extra

    lol...I'll only add a few lines myself. I wont post it here as there is no point a lot of the paths for mine will be hardcoded and not be "normal" folders found in apps. (it's complicated to make it uncomplicated for the kids) It keeps the hbc clean too.

    Like 1 dol launches any emu, another dol loads a copy of wiiexplorer with alt settings etc etc. I wll prob now make when launching cfg that you can load into certain games depending on certain buttons cause I've been playing about with args recently.

    I'll pm you what changes I make in main c though and you'll be able to modify it anyway you want to suit your needs. Remember you can use GC pads too (for things you wouldn't need a wiimote for, or prefer to use a gc pad) but you need to add a delay that's long enough for your situation.

    I asked this exact question in #wiidev and marcan said basically it makes it that much more likely that you can totally FUBAR your NAND, so be careful. But yeah, it's no different than launching it from HBC without reloading IOS.

    Many thanks for this. I have used it and it works great.

    On the Wode the channels are created using DVDx, lots of people have removed DVDx with the 0.7 and 0.8 HBC update.
    The channels have stopped working.
    I used customizemii and this base wad and they now work.

    PS I used your download, and posted this on the Wode site.

    WiiJohn ... I'm gonna be setting up a wode soon, I wondered if you could test something for me, if you have time. If not no worries m8.

    Can you install the Wode channels to a sneek nand and see if they work right ? I'm kinda 50/50 on if it will work but if it does then games should be loaded from wode and saves would go to the emu nand. (or have I missed something ?? )

    Hey Xflak, i've actually done this some time ago with WiiMC's old forwarder source, you can change the paths to whatever you like, its pretty easy [​IMG]

    IOS202 Multi Forwarder Source

    If you want the newer IOS58 version with same mod, let me know. This one uses IOS202. I could make a forwarder with vbagx/snes9xgx/fceugx/wiimc for UP,DOWN,LEFT,RIGHT. but other than that i probably would not use the IOS58 version. but this way DVD would work with all apps.

    EDIT: Here is the newest WiiMC forwarder source with the multi-forwarder mod, UP loads WiiMC, LEFT loads Snes9xgx, RIGHT loads fceugx and DOWN loads vbagx if nothing is pressed it loads WiiMC by default, but here is the source so you can cahnge to your taste.

    Maybe this is a extremely stupid question, anyway:
    If I use this base and change brlan/brlyt, banner images, icon images and I make a "Complex Forwarder", everything on CustomizeMii. Do I lost the AHBPROT feature?

    @Skater4599, sweet! thx for the sources! Can you also please share your libogc/devkit? I'm overly paranoid about these channels (as u can probably guess from the quote below!)

    @niishou, no, but this could happen to you if u don't use the proper source to build the dol (which is worse!).... original posting

    edit: this issue I had has been driving me nuts! Can some1 please offer some insight? I want to use AHBPROT apps and forwarder channels, but I don't want to feel like I am risking the data on my HDD every time I launch one!

    @Xflak - actually my devkit/libogc i had installed from matguitarist in his thread, but I have not used it for IOS58 stuff, i dont personally use IOS58 stuff at all at this moment, i find 202 much faster/reliable and I personally have no need for DVD access inside of emulators/wiimc. That said im still on the lookout for a current/stable fixed libogc myself for IOS58 stuff. I have several libogc's i actually switch between atm depending on what im compiling, wiixplorer,wiiflow,emu's,wiimc etc lol
