    is there any way to batch covert wads to the content.bin format used in System Menu 4?

    Install it and copy it to your SD. Thereon you will find the content.bin.

    i found that worked (other than WAD Manager suddenly doesn't like my card) but is there a way to do it with another app on a PC instead of installing several WADs just to move and delete?

    No, there currently isn't a way because the content has to be custom signed by your wii.


    In theory you could dump your private key and create a program that could use that to encrypt the data from wads... but no such program exists currently.

    As to my knowledge, there is no application for now. What would be the reason in converting WAD's to content.bin's?

    I got system menu 4 working but WAD Manager gives me the ERROR (ret = -1) no matter what card I use. I even tried USB Storage and my SD Gecko and all 3 worked before. I have had trouble with wad manager 1.3 before, but even 1.21 is doing it

    Less steps.


    Oh also I don't think it'll be possible because the wii also needs the titleID installed for it to run anything from SD.

    Though I guess you could get a batch program to make the encrpyted files for SD, and another program for wii that batch installs titleIDs for files made with the first program... it'd still be a lot of work to make.

    any other tools you would recommend trying for installing wads? I could do it manually if WAD Manager would be friendlier

    I recommend Channel File Manager 2.0 BETA 4. Not only does it actually work with USB devices, but it can be loaded directly from preloader.
