I have created a simple GUI for WBFS using wbfs_win_delta by gibbed

Hopefully people will find it alot easier to do this and there will be less questions about the command lines =)

Tell me if you find any bugs

You will need to have your drive partitioned first since its not in the GUI
Run it as administrator
Make sure the directory has no spaces in it for now

"Create Homebrew Directorys..."

Is this something for your SD or for the actual partition? Sorry I was sleeping a bit on the news today since the assholes at UPS didn't bring my external drive.

It's still not good to use drive letters instead of the hard drives numbers.
If you assign a letter to your Game partition you can accidently format it from the explorer.
If you init the partition the linux way it doesn't have a drive letter, so this problem is gone. Look at the Cygwin wbfs tool. It uses the drive address and not a drive letter and works, too.
For the end user it doesn't maker any differnece to select a drive letter or number but as long as you need a drive letter for this tool on windows it's behind the linux version.

Took me a while to get this up and running. It appears that you can't run this from a directory with spaces in the name and I had to run it as an administrator (I'm using Vista.)

this option will create HBC File System Folder for each ISO on your Storage Device and allows you to add it to the App folder in your SD Card and you will be able to run the game from there if you have cIOS222 installed with Kwiirk last cIOS_USB2 release

Il sort that out when I have time, even though I havent added a way to partition into it its a good idea anyway =)

Thanks Moe.

I guess this will be helpful when I decide to update to 4.0U.

I still might have to stick to Knoppix until I feel more secure about the whole drive letter thing. Kinda wish this can actually sniff out the wbfs partition from a drive, might make it safer.

Great work though to everyone involved!

Well, now that I've figured it out it seems to be running just fine. I copied my Twilight Princess dump from my WBFS partition to my computer and the command prompt window didn't go away and said the ISO was only 48% done until I closed the thing. But I launched the resulting ISO in Dolphin to test it and it seems to have worked, so I don't know what that was about.
