    Can anyone tell me what the argv. parameter file should be named?​
    or they only work with loading from wiiload?​

    In general arguments are not read from a file but from the command invocation.
    I don't think I really understand the question. Please rephrase.

    edit: do you mean meta.xml?

    You put them in meta.xml, like so:

    Code:
    --iosV=12
    
    etc.

    but if it's being launched from an exploit, it loads casper from the root of the sd card (ie. without meta.xml)

    Well in that instance if you want arguments you will need to either modify the exploit or write an in between loader to in turn load casper with the relevant arguments.

    a plain ol' forwarder dol that accepts meta.xml arguments should work right?

    so exploit --> SD:\boot.dol forwarder dol --> FAT:\apps\Casper (with meta.xml arguments if any)

    no idea, never used such a thing.

    but if you mean what I think you do, that is what is pretty much what I meant anyway.
