    Hello! I wonder if there is a WAD Editor? Such as WiiScrubber can do with Wii ISO files? Can WiiScrubber open a WAD file? Need help!

    it depends or what type of wad and what you want do edit about it. the basic procedure is unpack it, edit something, update the TMD, repack it. if you want to change the images and animations for banners, the edit something stage involves unpacking the banner, converting the images to a type you can edit on your pc, editing them, convert back, repack the banner.

    the tools mentioned above handle most of that all in a few easy clicks.

    I have Ocarina of Time WAD and I get a .app-file that is 35MB using ShowMiiWads. Is it the ROM-file? Can anyone tell how to start it up using Project64?

    There should be more than one app file in the WAD. One of them is ROM.

    Yeah, there is more .app-files in there but I wonder if there is any way to pack out the ROM out of those .app-files?

    No, the big one .app file is not the ROM it CONTAINS the ROM. In ShowMiiWADs there is an option to unpack U8 archive. Run that on the largest .app file (as I'm assuming you've already unpacked the WAD...). If you can't find the ROM I will slap you.

    Weird! Nintendo never used the new version of the LoZ: OoT that contained in the Nintendo GameCube! They using the Nintendo 64 version of the LoZ: OoT in the .WAD-file.

    How do I know that? Becouse the most popular thing is how Nintendo has used things from the religion of Islam. On the shield so you can see a moon and a star who is about as symbolic of Islam.

    On the left side you can see the Nintendo 64 version and the right side you can see the Nintendo GameCube version.​

    So why didn't Nintendo use the new version of the LoZ: OoT found in Nintendo Gamecube version in the .WAD-file?

    We can guess about a week and this won't take us anywhere really...
    Maybe they liked more N64 version?
    Maybe as WAD is supposed to emulate N64 version so they put N64 version to not lie users?
    Really silly question "why"
