You are right! I had this folder on my desk top and does not work. I tried iso in this directory or browse from a different dir. I copied this flder on c: and now it works both ways. Took me some time to get this working but works now. Was more fun doing a wad the old way, now is to symple. :-) Thanks for the s\w.
I am on XP sp3 as well and I have no problem here. Had a little problem at the begining with this and what I found was that my port was opened by a different GUI (too many now LOL - thanks all of you) that crashed prior to trying this one and was still running under Processes. Give it a try and see .......
I can confirm that the error 9 is a wbfs issue.... it has to do with wbfs not being able to detect your drive and is absolutely os dependant! I wasn't going to comment anymore but curiosity got the better of me so I installed my gui, along with every single solitary gui on tehskeen on my mom's Vista 64 laptop....
NOT A SINGLE ONE WORKED!
One of the gui's even gave the exact same runtime error 9... meaning they propbably used the same code.
I also tried wbfs, wfbswin and wbfs delta via the command line... again none of them worked!
So for those of you who are saying "It works in another gui" please list the other gui it works in, along with your OS (64 or 32 bit as well... I think that might be the issue.)
WBFS Manager is the thing to create channels with.
The easiest way is to create them from an ISO.
Just go to Channel Maker > Make Channel for Game With ISO
Then just browse for your ISO file, select it and click okay.
The channel is then found in the wad subdirectory of the WBFSMANCHAN1_5 directory.
Oh, I just realised one thing.
You have to click on the game you want to make the channel for before you click on Channel Maker.
The ISO you choose is only used to supply the banner file, not the channel ID.
You can check that it was done right by looking at the name of the wad produced.
When I did it without having selected a game, I got Uisc.wad
But when I clicked on Super Smash Bros. Brawl first, I got the proper USBE.wad
That should probably go onto HowardC's to-do list for the next version:
When using Make Channel for Game With ISO, get the game ID from the iso too, not just the banner file. It will just make it that little bit more foolproof.
Actually, it would be nice to be able to make channels from ISOs without having to have the WBFS drive plugged into the PC.
At the moment you can't start the WBFS Manager without a valid WBFS drive plugged in.
