    Description
    SysCheck HacksDen Edition is a fork of SysCheck v2.0, with several of my own personal changes. It includes several bug-fixes, and much better support for the vWii.

    Good job man, congratulations.
    I'm pretty sure my Wii is up to date ( it must have been for the past year or so ) but still, it doesn't hurt to double check it's health every once in a while.
    Cheers.

    Thanks. I was working animation until a SysCheck by ivoyfer made it clear that there is a HUGE flaw with the way it grabs the System Menu region (and no, I didn't introduce that). It doesn't check the actual version, it just assumes that you have the correct region installed and bases the U/E/J/K character (like the J in 4.3J) on the region in setting.txt.

    Animation will go on hold until I fix that, as it was purely for aesthetic purposes.

    I don't know what's going on there, but it's happening on the official version too. I considered just removing the upload button, but I left it just in case the host (I assume that's where the problem exists) gets fixed.
    I might try out other font colors. However, the loading process isn't a huge deal IMO, since it's often too fast to read anyway.

    All of that goes in the back seat right now. I'm looking into the code and it seems I'll need to rewrite a pretty big chunk of it.

    By the way, I'm always happy for beta testers. If anybody wants to volunteer, just send me a PM.

    Um, I know I probably sound stupid for asking this, but what does this actually do? Does it simply tally up the number of things that are out-of-date and give you a list, or does it actually use the Wii's internet connection to download and update everything itself for you? I haven't fiddled with the things on the Wii since I first set it up to run homebrew stuff, since I'm generally of the mindset of "if it isn't broken, leave it be". I've been playing Skyward Sword lately, and I'm not entirely sure if I'm still able to go on the Wii Shop Channel to download the save fix if I hit that infamous glitch later on, having heard something about some new update making the Wii Shop Channel brick the Wii or something. Would this set it up so I can do that?

    It tells you most everything that's installed on your Wii, except for channels. The main use is for analyzing the situation when something is going wrong. Often the first response to problematic-Wii threads is "Please post a SysCheck".

    So no, it doesn't update anything. Stay away from those 1-in-all update programs like PimpMyWii (aka BrickMyWii).

    Why make this as a fork instead of updating the origonal?

    Because then I might as well start from scratch. SignCheck is sssssooooooooooo out of date.

    It's easier to make fixes and improvements to the latest one instead of writing years worth of stuff again. There was no point in it.

    Edit: Also, when I started this I didn't think I was going to get sucked into doing cleanup on yet another project. I had planned on making a few changes and being done with it, but that's not how it turned out. Dirty code annoys me to no end though, and it is extremely difficult for me to just leave it alone.

    Yep. It will work on both a real and vWii.

    Lol, I do. I've got several projects just on the verge of being updated, but I stopped working on them because I got behind on something else.

    If I try to download it keeps saying I have to wait X second. And after waiting + refreshing it just restarts the timer.
    Do I have to register on the site?

    Edit: worked with IE instead of FF.

    It works fine for me in Firefox. Try restarting your browser with add-ons disabled (click the Help menu) and see if it works.

    Is it possible to add USB Support?
    As Upload doesn't work correctly, and saving is only for SD as far as i know, and USB isn't added yet.
    Not sure if it's problematic or not.

    But if the .csv can be saved in the application folder (which is at the USB for me) then that would save some trouble.

    Uploading is broken on their end, I can't fix it.

    I've been planning to add USB support, they just hardcoded a lot of stuff so it's difficult to make it support both without rewriting a lot of the code.

    Yeah saw that.

    Hmm, isn't it possible to make it save at both?
    Meaning you don't change anything, you let it save at SD, and if that fails it will run the other code (Fail error blabla), and in that piece of code you save it to the USB instead?
    Though, probably easier said then done.
