    Even if you only backup your copy of wii sports resort, once the game is decrypted you have no way of telling if any of the files have become corrupt.
    Encrypted discs however can be checked to make sure nothing has happened to it.

    There is a greater chance of support issues & wasted time.

    so you are saying that a file sitting on your HDD is likely to corrupt itself if it is not encrypted? ive got several thousand files that are not encrypted sitting on several different HDDs and they never just decide to corrupt themselves. i dont know if you just dont know how to manage your data or if maybe your files dont like their home in your HDD.

    besides, look at it this way... if you have a game stored as 5000 little files and 1 magically decides to corrupt itself for shits and giggles, you can just extract that 1 file from your original copy and not have to waste 20 minutes to sevelar hours dumping the whole ISO again.

    I have a question regarding the fst.bin builder code you released. do you forget to put the main.h in your release too, or is it just a proof of concept code release?

    theres nothing really special about the .h file. its just basic types and declarations
    Code:
    #ifndef MAIN_H
    #define MAIN_H
    
    #ifndef NULL
    # define NULLÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ((void *)0)
    #endif
    
    /* Data types */
    typedef charÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂs8;
    typedef shortÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂs16;
    typedef longÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂs32;
    typedef unsigned charÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂu8;
    typedef unsigned shortÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂu16;
    typedef unsigned intÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂu32;
    typedef unsigned long longÂÂÂÂu64;
    
    typedef intÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂbool;
    
    /* Boolean values */
    #define trueÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ1
    #define falseÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ0
    
    
    
    bool IsDirectory(char path[]);
    char *path_cat (const char str1[], char str2[]);
    int AddPath(const char dir_path[], int thisItem);
    u64 getFileSize(const char filepath[]);
    u32 ReadFileToBuffer(const char in[], u8 ** outbuf);
    void SetEntry(int num, int type, int nameoffset, int offset, int size);
    int pathWalk(const char dir_path[], int tabs);
    int PathCount(const char dir_path[]);
    void hexdump(void *d, int len);
    u32 be32( unsigned int i );
    u64 be64(const u8 *p);
    u16 be16(const u8 *p);
    
    
    
    
    #endif // MAIN_H

    I got a simple version of sneek going in the beginning of the v2 revolution but didn't pay attention when the enable usbhaxx and DI crap was going on. I need to start reading 150 odd pages of the sneek thread and try to figure that out and then come back here right ???

    if so, somebody pm me when this topic actually goes somewhere or when somebody can actually help me find some links to what I need to make things "just a little easier" on me.

    Thanks,
    ChokeD

    Yeah, probably (or better, for shure). But if you would have done that AND released the code of them, I guess some people would love to update the modified loaders. For me, I would love to maintain the official WiiFlow Changes if there would be the full source for a modified Wiiflow(s). It's some Copy-Paste from Googlecode, every Noob could do this. But, modifing a loader with your sources (and polishing it) is just over my head. So yeah, all I can do right now is waiting and hoping someone will do it. And if someone does, I guess they don't need my noobish help [​IMG]. So yes, I also understand you, and I thank you for releasing the code, realy great work [​IMG]!

    (Btw: I find it a bit strange that this Topic doesn't get a very big attention. Guess it is because it isn't realy for Noobs, but still...)

    I've been watching this and keeping an eye on the "official" SNEEK thread, excellent progress!! Kudos to you smart guys. Wish I had time to build an environment and compile myself. Definitely exciting developments. Thanks for sharing your modifications we all know you really don't have to. Cheers!

    That was probably RapidShare's link that said that. MU has no such limits (the file being temporarily unavailable is a different issue).

    Besides, the direct link from multiupload itself just worked for me.

    like even a short *sort of_ tutorial would be awesome, like look for stuff beginning with x and replace it with y. Stuff like that, but were just left to apparently understand how everything works and stuff, at least if GP had given us abit more clear instructions, i'd be abit happier, as i said he basically just said heres some code, im not gonna tell you what to do with it, like if i at least had some sort of idea what i was looking for that'd be different.

    edit: And yes before you try to mention that he did say what to get rid of/replace, thats still only useful for experienced coders, and yes tinyload would seem to be a good loader, considering i don't care about cheats and stuff, the only thing i want is a selection menu of some sort. And it doesnt have any wbfs code or anything, since its a disc loader, but it doesnt have a selection menu, i haven't thoroughly looked at pune's code, but does it have a selection menu? or would we have to try to write one for a program that doesnt have it.

    if your don't know how to make it, then do like he said and wait for someone to do it for you...

    he released the changes so devs could incorporate it into their loaders if they wished. at no point did he state that he was releasing an app. there is no instant gratification to be had.

    well see thats the thing, i would like to try to make it, i dont want to wait for devs to do it, and obviously i'm not looking for instant gratification, if i wanna try to do it myself.

    edit: Like someone else mentioned, maybe he wants more people to try to learn, and as I said previously, almost every developer i bet, got help when they were starting on something, they probably didn't just know exactly how to write everything right off the bat, everyone needs help sometimes, but apparently were too lowly to be given help

    I can understand that & all, but seriously, I'm not exactly the dumbest computer person ever to say the least, and I just don't understand all this 'compile it yourself' bullcrap!!! I'm not trying to offend anyone or start a battle or anything, but enough with this already!!! Just someone please compile it so we can all enjoy this supposed 'awesome' software. If it's so great I feel the original creator should have it all pre-compiled so we can all see just how great it is. Until then I don't believe it's even close to good. If it's so great the original coder would have all the bugs worked out & there wouldn't be any need to worry about the 'noob flood' because it just wouldn't happen. If it works, it works.....if it doesn't then don't release it until all testing is done with.

    On a side-note, can someone please point me in the right direction as to compile software? Seems this knowledge is more of a need every day, and I just haven't gotten around to learning how yet....I'm not a coder, afterall [​IMG]

    Would this decrypted disc dumper give a file structure similar to what you see in WiiScrubber? I love messing with Wii ISO's, but I don't know if the new disc dumping tool would be any different than what I already use.
