    Gambia, The
    I had an injected wad (Earthbound) and I wanted to change the Save Icon & Save Title.
    So I extracted the Wad with ShowMii Wads and opened "vc_save_inject.exe"
    So I loaded the "00000001.app" file from the extracted Earthbound Injected wad and the "banner.tpl" File, that I got with using the program "VC_Icon_Gen.exe".

    I pressed Inject but it said "banner.tpl Not Found ! Cannot File Save banner to inject!".
    The Save Title works but not the save Icon.

    Help me!

    Why don't you play it with an emulator? You're going to end up banner-bricking your Wii.

    I've made like 10 wads - nothing ever happened. And I always try them in Dolphin simulated Wii Menu etc.

    But do you know the solution of the problem?

    SNES VC save images are not in the dol, but in 00000005.app as a standalone banner.tpl. How did you miss that? It's right next to the ROM and emanual. If you're injecting with some tool you should stop and manually edit the U8 files, you'll save space this way, DKC2 VC stores the ROM twice for no reason, you can delete that, and empty the .PCM, the .VAR and the manual, you should also replace the home menu files (00000004.app) with one with just Wii Menu and reset options.

    Personally you should always try VC first, it's much nicer than the homebrew emulators.

    Oh, I was really blind. And in N64 wads? Is there the banner.tpl in 00000005.app too?
    By the way, IMO VC Injections are waste for NES because there are too many (still great games) but for SNES and N64 (if working) they are really useful.
    Do you actually know how to fix a banner-bricking Wii? It didn't happened to me yet but I want to get shure which programs i should have on my wii (I have priiloader).
    And do you know that I can really ensure its working if its working on Dolphin with Wii Menu installed?

    So you mean I can delete:
    In 00000005.app
    "emanual.arc"
    "JBDP.pcm"
    "JBDP.var"
    "JBDP.rom"

    I am not shure about what to delete exactly in 00000004.app for reducing home menu file. Extracted, there are two folders ("HomeButton2" and "HomeButton3"). Can you specify this?

    And btw, can I mess up with the other files? For example in 00000003.app there is a file called "WiiNTLG-Regular.ttc" for the font, can I replace it without any damages? Or changing the Wii Menu texts?

    For N64 it should be in 00000005.app/save_banner.tpl
    If you have priiloader and you bannerbrick all you have to do is load into hbc from priiloader, load your wad manager and select uninstall wad instead.
    I don't know Dolphin well enough to know if it could bypass lockups, I would say no, chance of bannerbrick is unlik.

    Don't delete them, empty them; you can do this with a hex editor.
    Or you can make an empty text file and save it with the same name.
    *.rom is the game. the pcm is the game audio separated from the rom, the emu doesn't require it.
    Actually deleting the var and pcm files will get you a classy 'An error has occurred'.

    Editing the home menu is kind of a pain, it's better to obtain an existing 00000004.app from somewhere else, the space saved isn't exactly worth it, it just looks more pro not having another game's manual. Home menu font should be editable, but I've never done it.

    1. illegal
    2. I very often inject German Translations of Roms and I think nobody uploaded them.
    3. The most injected wads uploaded just have the game and the title in it but no banner.blyrt or Save Icons.

    1. Who cares? The police aren't gonna come after you for downloading a Wii emulator of a SNES game.
    2 and 3 make sense, though.

    I have a problem: I wanted to change the emanual.arc.
    So i extracted it with "u8extr.exe"
    I changed the startup.html and made this as html:
    HTML:
    <!----- 20160520 version 1.0 ----->
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="standard.css" type="text/css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="fckStyles.css" type="text/css">
    <title>Injected Wad</title>
    </head>
    <body style="margin: 0; padding: 0">
    <table width="100%" height="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
    <tr><td height="96">
        <div id="TopBar">
            <div id="TopBarTextOne" class="TopBarTextOne">Injected Wad<br></div>
            <div id="TopBarTextTwo" class="TopBarTextTwo"></div>
            <div id="TopBarLogo"><img src="hbc_logo.png"></div>
    
        </div>
    </td></tr>
    <tr><td valign="top" style="text-align: center">
    
    
    
        <img src="Credits_Ljonja.png">
        <p>Disclaimer: I only injected the wad, I didn't made the game!</p>
      
    </body>
    </html>
    
    My finally finished editing of the contents of the extracted emanual.arc looks like this:
    [​IMG]
    So I repacked the folder with the U8-Tool (HowardC) with the normal settings and got my new .arc file.
    I repacked the 00000005_app_OUT and repacked the wad.
    I opened the wad File and gone to Home Menu/Operations Guide to see if it shows up my custom HTML file.
    But when I go on the File, it says this:
    [​IMG]
    But I had the startup.html file in my emanual.arc
