    Scrubbed file will not install the channel properly.

    Wiiscrubber has a problem with the third partition in that it calculates the partition offsets incorrectly for it due to an unsigned 64 issue in the code. As a result the data in the third partition is not marked as used (the data is from 1155d0000 to 11750FFFF).

    Wiiscrubber 1.1 beta will be released this afternoon sometime that will allow you to merge the data in.

    I imagine that a fix for the missing update may be posted on boneless this evening [​IMG]

    Dif file should be about 40 Meg

    edit: Those values apply to the PAL release btw.

    Well i'm sure the coder himself Dack can tell you heh, other reliable people have said also. Hence why the USA/PAL will scenes did not make the switch.

    Not to say the method doesn't work fine for now, but just blanking bytes in a clean iso is not good for the scene. Its very likely we'll end up in future with a massive backlog of unworking jap scrubbed releases if it continues. I'm sure everyones public ISO sources can make and distribute their own scrubbed ones anyway, just its best if the official scene release is clean.

    Ok, I agree that scrubbed releases MUST be separated from the "original" ones.

    The question is, the great majority of JAP releases today are scrubbed, so a lot of JAP users don't even know that the games they want have been dumped, 'cause they aren't listed with the others.

    A solution to this would be to do a ORIGINAL Release List and a SCRUBBED Release List.

    On a related note, I want to know WHO I have to contact to comment about the RL, 'cause I've seen some "inconsistences".

    I've noted some flaws regarding the lists. If you want I could comment they here, if it would help.

    With the scrubbed titles, I wonder if it is possible to reverse back the process and get the same checksum figure?

    I guess the scene will evolve and nuke the scrubbed titles...

    It'd be good to obtain nice backups (where normal users like me do not know how to really dump the files....)

    Cheers!

    The scene just needs to start compressing games in a newer format that has less size difference between scrubbed or not. ZIP is so 90s material by now. Time to move on.

    I've applied stormyuan's restore patch (and patched with BrickBlocker too), but how do I activate the MK channel? I've played the game a few times but when I go back to the Wii system menu there is no MK channel there.

    My Wii has 3.1J firmware.

    Go into the options in the game and it asks you if you want to install the channel.
