Update 3: Got WiiSX RX setup up with the forwarder and everything, but everytime I run sign_c2w_patcher before launching the emulator, it hangs right after the Wii title screen and I have to unplug the Wii U. If I run the emulator without the patcher it loads just fine but obviously without the overclock ugh.

Update 2: I found a fork of Wiisxr called WiiSX RX that supports the overclocking on github. Will give it a shot when I get a chance. It can be found here:
https://github.com/niuus/WiiSXRX/releases
Forwarder channel is downloadable there.


Update: Managed to find an installable forwarder channel for Wii64 with overclock and gamepad support. (I believe this may have been an inject from an actual VC title so I won't share the link here). Looks like c2w_patcher is no longer necessary just Sign_c2w_patcher everytime i run Wii64. Now I just gotta make or find a forwarder for WiiSXR

Sorry if this has been covered here definitively before. Ive tried looking into it back aren't finding any clear cut tutorials besides whats on YouTube which I want to avoid for obvious reasons.

I'm ultimately trying to overclock these two emulators as the title states. Before I pull the trigger and actually try this, I want to make sure i fully understand everything.

My setup: CBHC 1.6 (comes with HBL 1.4, but I also have 2.1 installed as a channel for homebrew that's broken with 1.4). Im not set to autoboot as i prefer to have the CBHC menu come up every time. Firmware 5.5.5U (afaik but no way to confirm as CBHC fw reports it as 99.99.99U lol).

Anyways from what I've gathered I need to first install the forwarder channels to the Wii U menu for each emulator using teconmoons WiiVC injector.

Once thats done, I need to run c2w_patcher to unlock full speed under WiiVC, then run sign_c2w_patcher for Sig patches, then finally open up the emulator forwarder channel of my choice.

Am I understanding this correctly? I don't wanna pull the trigger on this until im sure I understand it fully.

@Kopimist

Sorry for necrobumping an old thread

Have you tried using the official Wii U launcher of WiiSX RX with sign_c2w_patcher?
It was also made by @niuus, author of WiiSX-RX.
Here https://github.com/niuus/WiiSXRX/releases/download/v2.5/WiiSXRX_WiiU_ChannelFWD.zip

Hope this help ;)

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    i bent pins on the cpu socket bay and my cpu was wigging out

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    luckily i was able to unbend the bastards and get my pc booting again

    i will never forget that horrible, 800hz 4 - 2 - 1 beep

    on the flip side, i was able to give the dingus machine that i nearly screwed the cpu up on a solid state drive
    Gift
  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    and i cleverly got the idea to move the pagefile to it
    Gift
  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    i think my ram's slower than that solid state drive, jesus christ
    Gift
  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    it seems like the pc chugs, then gets exponentially faster after what i can only assume is the pc running out of physsey
    ram
    Gift
  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    whereas before it just chugged no matter what

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    slow pagefile, slow ram, now the pagefile's leaving poor phrammy in the dust

    I deal with bent CPU pins on a almost daily basis...

  • Digitalcat @ Digitalcat:
    bent cpu pins are my fav, love unbending them and then bending even more by accident.

  • Digitalcat @ Digitalcat:
    Hate how they are getting thinner and thinner.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Didn't they invent those nubs and contacts a while ago so we wouldn't have to deal with a million pins when plugging in a CPU?

  • Veho @ Veho:
    What happened to that?

  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I think Intel still uses LGA?

    not to well known with the newer CPUs

    New AMD is still on pins Intel went LGA but rumor is they are swapping with AMD going LGA and Intel maybe going back to pins
