    Hi guys!

    I appreciated very much this game manager,but unfortunately it runs only with .NET 3.5 installed,and Wine does not support it. Is it possible to use Wii Game Manager with Mono or something else on a Linux distribution?

    When You find an answer for that let me know Running Ubuntu 9.10 (K.K)
    I tried Ubuntu (Tried To Install Alone Side Windows. Epic Fail) and here I am
    Running Wine With Some Programs. I am going to try WBFS Manager Next.
    this may help it lacks about 85% of wii game Manager. But it may get the job done.

    Yes,i found it after writing this post. I think it's pretty useful and well done. Do you know if the project is still alive? The last release was developed long time ago..

    If I got it right it is constantly in development, maybe not extremly active, but its opensource ... as long it works right there will not be much activity ^^ ( https://code.launchpad.net/wiithon - see last modified)

    from what ive seen, wiithon is really nice. but it requires a WBFS partition. it doesnt support just creating wbfs files from games. or at least if it does, i couldnt figure it out.

    the "wii game manager for windows" or whatever its called runs fine in wine. aside from seeing every partition as FAT last time i checked. But still at least 90% functional.

    wbfs_file obviously works fine. its good ole cli, but its fucking fast.

    Good question, I don't know?
    But it is Java. I thought Java is compatible on all plattforms!? (this was the promotion argument nr.1)

    I use only wwt at command line.

    You guys can can always virtualized a winxp using virtualbox. It's very easy to do. VB is very self explanatory but will take about 5Gb of your hard drive. Or, you can install winxp/7 and then install Ubuntu trough Wubi.

    I'm currently running this program through a VM and using a virtual network share to get at the data from both sides (ubuntu and Winxp running in VM).

    Works just fine.
