    WADder 3.1 beta has been released! Now available in the following forms:
    - Windows Installer: http://jafile.com/uploads/icefire/wadder-3.1beta-win32.zip
    ***** NOTE: WINDOWS USERS MUST RUN FROM C:\Program Files\WADder, NOT FROM SHORTCUTS! ****
    - Mac DMG: http://jafile.com/uploads/icefire/wadder-3.1beta-mac-new.dmg
    - Source ZIP: http://jafile.com/uploads/icefire/wadder3.1_beta2_src.zip

    Features:
    - 100% icefire/Xuzz and HACKERCHANNEL code -- no claiming I'm ripping things off any more.
    - SOUND IS CONVERTED TO BNS FORMAT -- SMALLER, SOUNDS BETTER, WADDER EXCLUSIVE (except HBC and Nintendo).
    - No external programs used to do any part of the WAD creation -- all internal.
    - Included WAD packer more accurate than any other.
    - Included U8 packer the best in existence. Even better than marcan's. And crediar's. Especially HowardC's and Gally's. And all the others.
    - Built in WAD browser for finding a base WAD!
    - Smaller resulting WAD files than any other program/method (even manually).
    - Files created are more accurate (as it is based on Wii.py)
    - Progress bars for most operations.
    - TPLs can be in over 5 different formats, with automatic detection (though can be manually overridden)
    - WAD Editor, not Creator. This means you can load different parts from different WADs.
    - Cross platform, works on Mac, Windows, and Linux!
    - Can install to anywhere, on any platform.
    - Better UI than ever before.
    - Stablest WADder yet!
    - Completely legal. No doubts about it.
    - Under the HACKERCHANNEL license.

    Features from previous versions:
    - Title ID changing.
    - Two selectable NAND Loaders with permission from the authors (comex and Waninkoko)
    - Selectable DOL to make a channel for your favourite app.
    - Change the channel title for all languages -- or any specific one.
    - Completely edit static and animated channels!
    - Everything else I forgot.

    Known issues:
    - TPL preview is often screwed up.

    Please post issues on the thread at WADder.net, it makes it easier for me to have all the bugs in one place (of course there is bugs...but I want to fix them!)

    It doesn't matter if it is legal or not - that fat turd Marcan will delete it anyway.

    Thanks Xuzz for this excellent app

    You don't really need one -- just fire it up and choose one of the WADs in the list, click Load, then go through the different tabs and change whatever you want, and click Create WAD! to save.

    Of course not, it takes care of everything like that for you. Thats why its the "Easy" custom channel maker. It does the hard parts and lets you do the fun ones [​IMG]

    My guess: no.

    I could make it support that but it would be a bunch of work for not much benefit.

    It is a PC Utility that allows you to create custom channels for the Wii. GREAT JOB ICEFIRE!

    I doubt the Wii would render that anyway.

    @All who want a tutorial: I'll try to get one going Monday.
