    You did save the changes to that one file, and then replace it in the video, yes? Is the game compatible at all?

    Yes, copied to my PC, changed it, saved like in the OP, saved the changes and put the file back to the original folder. Not sure what you mean by compatible, it's an official VC title. I only tried to change the dark filter.

    Can anyone share some ips patches for widescreen hacks?
    Btw I made an ips patch that can patch the FrameLayout.arc to disable the dark filter and make widescreen :)

    Just murdered Excitebike 64, just doesn't work. It freezes in the VC launch screen.

    The game is problematic I thought.

    I don't get this, shouldn't this work for all VC titles?

    The layout file that has been shared is probably not the one for your VC release.
    That's why I've been saying and repeating that we should ALL be using the F-Zero X official N64 VC release as the main base for ALL FrameLayout.arc tests. Someone should modify the F-Zero .arc and share it so others can use that one.

    From there you can simply make infinite copies of the same F-Zero X game, but replacing the config.ini and corresponding ROM of whatever game you want to inject.

    That way we can be sure we are all using the same base VC for tests.

    Oh and I mention F-Zero X as base because that one has the latest known SVN compiled date compared to all others. (So better optimized... I think?)

    So for people with the WII U console (not CEMU), how do we do this correctly?

    I get it. I thought this was more advanced, you know, not full on test phase lol. I just tested with 2 games I had installed on my Wii U. I used my own FrameLayout file, didn't use any that it's getting shared. Edited like OP instructed and replaced it in my already installed folder, both froze on launch.

    I forgot to mention that the IPS patch I shared is for F-Zero X (USA).

    That's the problem.
    Each VC release is a different build of the emulator, hence why some crash and some don't.
    I tried mine with 5 different games, both Castlevanias, DK64, Kirby, Biohazard 2 and they all worked for me perfectly with no filter and fullscreen, all loaded through Loadiine.

    All of the games I have use F-Zero X as the base VC, even DK64, so clearly the issue is the vessel.rpx build from different VC releases.

    From this point onwards, I suggest you all guys start updating your N64 VC builds to use F-Zero X's release to avoid discrepancies with the .arc.

    Thank you, I managed to do it and it works as intended. :)

    Now I'm only curious about this muti rom loading thing the first post mentioned.
    Do I have to name it a special way, the extentions for emulators aren't the same as some random three numbers. :blink:

    I just did a few tests:

    - You can leave the rom name as game.z64 and the debug menu will pick up the rom name, which I assume it gets this from the rom header, however the system will crash trying to boot the rom.
    - I've tested using the original file name that Nintendo has given to their own N64 VC's, grabbing a game from another official N64 VC and same thing happens, system crashes when trying to boot another game.
    - In the debug Rom List menu, if you select back => Reset, it will reboot the VC and will load the FIRST game that is in the Rom List, there doesn't seem to be a way to boot the second game in the list.
    - Selecting any other rom or even the first rom in the list will system crash, even if it's the first game. You must go back => Reset to boot the first game in the Rom List.
    - Same goes for if you select back => Change Rom, this just takes you back to the Rom List menu, again system will crash when selecting a game.
    - The Rom List is sorted by alphanumeric.

    EDIT:
    Would it be a good idea to create a new Wiki Compatibly page with this to see what works and what doesn't with Widescreen support? Widescreen patched or not patched?

    Excellent!
    Glad that you got it working.

    Also, the multirom thing, I don't think it would work as you would expect.
    Unless the emulator can grab the corresponding .ini from the list of available ones automatically, I don't see that being a thing sadly.
    Each VC expects to load only one .ini at a time, I don't think it could load several on the fly depending on what game you load.
    But hey, perhaps it is possible, simply hasn't been discovered yet.
    Have there been any reports of crashing with people using F-Zero X as the base for all widescreen tests?
    So far I haven't had a single VC injection crash on me with the new FrameLayout.arc, and I had like 10 or so N64 games, only one being original dump of DK64, all others are injections.

    Can this be done for VC titles that aren't N64 games? Has anyone looked into trying that?
