    I know it's possible to run cheat codes via the ISO->Properties and getting the cheats from WiiRD, since you don't need Gecko OS. I already have textures hacks ready to use on my Wii (and not the emulator) so I already know how to set it up on there. What I want to know is, it is possible to do the same on Dolphin? I know that adding cheats to the code database is easy, right click->Properties->Edit Config and it brings up the text containing all cheat codes. Now, normally on the Wii, you need to have sub directories that tell Gecko OS what folders to look in (in this case, the Private folder" with the texture hacks). How would one go about doing so? Is it too complex of a process? I want to know how these textures look before actually trying them on the real Wii console. In game screenshots don't do justice IMHO.

    http://forums.kc-mm.com/Gallery/BrawlView.php is my main source for the hacks

    Here's the window I'm talking about http://www.filefactory.com/file/cc91ce2/n/ssbb_codes.jpg

    If this is the wrong section, I apologize.

    Either you're deviating from the topic's name, or I'm misinterpreting you. The thread is about texture hacks, but you talk about cheats inside. As for texture hacks on dolphin, theoretically, if you installed the riivolution wad on dolphin, you could just set it up there. As for cheats, i really don't know.

    I'm talking about using cheats to load textures in dolphin. Don't I need to make a file called SD.raw? Heck, I don't even know where to begin using homebrew on Dolphin.

    if you're using the ISo for dolphin and you want to load up custom textures/maps you will need to edit the ISO manually using WiiScrubber.

    Ah, dang it! That's what I was afraid of. Are there any good tutorials or will I have to know extensive amounts of hex editing?

    Normally, you use these hex addresses to replace the textures if you use GeckoOS, this replaces the textures.

    The textures are downloaded and placed on the SD card and they are in the "fighters" folder for SSBB.

    The characters have 5 or 6 colors with the format Fit_character name_00, 01, 02, 03, etc. I honestly don't know how you would edit that with WiiScrubber, much less tell the game where/what to look for.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
