    [ WADder ]
    Current Version: 1.1.1 (Release on December 23, 1008 at 1:30 PST)
    WADder is a easy to use channel creator. It creates channels from just a DOL, a few images, and a name. Comes with an installer and easy GUI.

    Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?tfux9imvc1o

    Instructions:
    - Install AS AN ADMINISTRATOR!.
    - COPY COMMON-KEY.BIN TO C:\WADDER\
    - Run WADder from your desktop
    - Enter values for the options.
    --- Pay special attention to the Title ID field: this MUST be different for EACH channel on your Wii
    --- You must enter something for every option.
    --- Do not enter fancy characters for the Channel Name.
    --- Banners and icons do not need a special size, they will be internally resized.
    --- Sound must be a WAV file, or click silent to not use any sound.
    --- Check to disable splashscreen if you want to watch the WADder magic [​IMG]. The splash is a nice coverup to the messy process of making a wad.
    - Click Create WAD! and wait for it to ask you where to save the wad.
    - Choose where and press save! The names of the WADs are CHANNEL_NAME-TITLEID.
    - Choose where to save the images too. They are [channel name]-[banner/icon/logo].jpg.

    Please post the WADs you make with this in the WADder Channel Releases thread!


    Thanks go out to:
    - Team Twiizers for making everything possible and for adding the bubblebreaker game to the HBC
    - Waninkoko for letting us install WADs in the first place.
    - djdynamite123 for initial encouragement and testing
    - IronMask for testing
    - Mrkinator for graphics and testing
    - SpaceJump for ideas and testing
    - deba94 for telling me more about the format of WADs
    - Gally (whoever he is) for writing the U8 tools and the TPL converter
    - Arm the Homeless for Linux discussion to keep me unbored [​IMG]
    - many more (if you feel you should be in this list PM me [​IMG])

    Anyone who uses Linux, go in a terminal and type "sh setupwadder.exe"

    It makes the font look so cool and impossible to understand. [​IMG]

    Is there a risk of this causing banner bricks?

    Only if you make bad banners yourself.

    Like all of the other channel makers.

    No, there is almost no risk. It resizes the images and such to the correct sizes.

    Just don't touch the computer while it is going.

    does this inject a dol then? (select dol)
    thought it was just like an gui for the banner tools

    so i can just
    add name
    add id
    pick dol
    banner blah blah
    and it will pack into a wad

    or did i miss something there lol

    Wow, I just tried this and it was funny watching it work its magic. Only I ran into a problem when it tried to name files. I had to manually edit the file location as it was missing C:\wadder at the beginning of some of the files it tried to save.

    BTW I'm on vista.

    even though it resizes all the pictures, what are the image resolutions supposed to be?

    I know. It's a joke. [​IMG]

    So not do anything computer-wise?

    *starts making WAD, loads up 500 flash sites, loads up tiny in-browser game to test mouse-moving, distributes said WAD*

    I see what this does now, basically it just runs a bat file called injectdol which somewhat automates the process.
