    Wad Manager by WANIKOKO

    Current Version: 1.2
    Since: 29.08.2008


    I changed the Wad Manager V1.1 Channel into Wad Manager V1.2!!!

    I kept the picture, because I like it and find that the owners (WANIKOKO) has the right to use only their picture!!!

    If you already have the Wad Manager V1.1 Channel installed at your Wii, just install this one and the old one will be updated! No deinstall of Version 1.1 required!

    version 1.2 is a bad release. 1.1 is better.

    this would be great if it would have a reset wii function, i love the fact that there is a channel for easy access for this, but i hate those code dumps and everytime to stand up and hard reset the wii...

    I hate the code dumps too.
    I installed Homebrew browser channel on my wii a while back. I used the wii shop channel banner(Which I thought was quite clever) but I do not use it any more because of the code dumps.

    Dude, you seriously need to stop making channels that crash the Wii on exit. That defeats the whole purpose of using a channel, as opposed to launching something from HBC.

    Channels should only be made for apps that allow you to return to the system menu when you quit. Getting up to hold the RESET button on the Wii for 5 seconds is not anyone's idea of convenience.

    Too bad.

    Thats how all channels that are made from Homebrew apps perform when hitting "Return to loader" or "exit" when its supposed to be run from the Homebrew Channel or any other loader.

    Tell that to the developer of the program itself, not the channel maker as the only way to make channels from these apps is to use the .DOL from the Homebrew App. Tell the developers to put in an option that restarts the Wii. Thats what most of the Emulators have.

    Good luck though, most developers dont support having channels made from their programs.

    I have a few emulator channels as well as a Quake channel. Hitting "return to loader" initiates a code dump. Same result with Quake. Those apps are meant to be used with loaders, ie: Homebrew Channel.

    Homebrew that doesn't support returning to the Wii system menu was not meant to be used as channels. Hence, stop making channels out of it. A crashed Wii defeats the convenience of a saved step in launching the program.

    People will still make channels, you cant stop them.

    Why not stop downloading and using their channels then?

    I think Wad Manager 1.21 might restart the Wii.
    If not, the source code is available for you to make the changes yourself.

    Yep. Just found that out.

    Oh, and is there any plans for a GUI?

    Sort of like the one in ScummVM?
    Click a WAD and click Install or Uninstall button?

    Does someone have the download link to 1.21? I tried the Wanikno page but it just took me to a Spanish forum with no download link...
