    could you explain how to use Spayrosam Auto iso's maker ?

    If i put my wad in folder \wad, when i launch the maker it ask me some details in partition builder.

    what is the great way ? It's not fully automatic ?

    Ok, this is what I did (and it worked):

    1. Put all your wads into \wad.
    2. Start 3ISOs several times, it will first recover all the necessary files/folders from the recovery-archive.
    3. At some point it will process the first wad-file and then ask you to proceed using partitionbuilder (which already opened).
    4. Except for the last "Browse"-button at the bottom, press them and navigate into the "make-iso" folder. The necessary files will be in there. With the last button navigate to "make-iso\sound" (opening.bnr should be in there).
    5. Click on Build/Proceed/whatever-the-button-is-called, save the file (partition1.img) and exit partitionbuilder.
    6. Wii-Scrubber will open up. Load the iso-file located in the folder above "make-iso" (I think it's called "Forwarder-ISO"). Then right-click on the first (and only) partition, select "unencrypted", then "load" and select the partition1.img located in "make-iso".
    7. Exit Wii-Scrubber
    8. The batch will proceed, a .txt-file will open up (don't know why [​IMG] ), just close it and you're done.

    Inside the Forwarders folder you will find your files. The forwarder iso which you add to your (wbfs) drive and the XXXX.dol (XXXX meaning the game id) inside another folder which goes into sd/usb:\forwarders\platform\ (where platform is n64/nes/snes etc.).

    This is it (basically)...

    Thank's popopinsel,

    Does triiforce or triforce_mrc still needed for use with it ?

    Don't think so. As I understood it's already part of the forwarder (is it the main.dol or the XXXX.dol?).

    Anyway, I don't have triiforce on my sd/usb-drive anymore and it's working... =)

    Test done but not working good !

    when Wii partition Builder is open
    What do i do exactly

    all fields are empty
    If i follow your guide and browse Source file directory to \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\sound and i keep all other fields empty and click Build i have an error "incorrect data in one of the fields".

    If i browse all fields to
    \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\partition.bin
    \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\apploader.img
    \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\boot.bin
    \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\BI2.bin
    \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\main.dol
    and source file directory to \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\sound

    and click to build i have an error/popup : "Partition will be approx 704k - do you want to continue" yes or no ?
    If i click yes it ask me if i want to save partition1.img. I save it to \forwarders-Iso's\game\make_iso\partition1.img and it tell me Partition file created.

    I did the rest of the process LOAD the iso in wiiscrubber, right click and load partition1.img, exit wiiscrubber and my iso is created with its forwarder.

    I will test it later i'm not at home this morning..and i tell you if it's working good.

    Thanks

    I did not told you to only browse for the source file directory (in which is opening.bnr) but also browse for the other ones (inside make-iso directory). So your second attempt was right.

    By the way, that partition builder popup is no error message, it just informs you what size the partition will be of. The rest of your procedure was right and your forwarders will hopefully work.

    Be sure to have a working nand dump (created with fstoolbox 0.4) and properly injected wads in it. If you can play them directly via triiforce then there's no problem with this.

    Good luck [​IMG]

    Now I'm excited and I have to wait 4 days! but oooooook [​IMG]

    I'm really looking forward to this "surprise" (could it be a forwarder ISO creator? That's EXACTLY what I wanted 4 x-mas... how did you know! [​IMG])

    thanks a lot, and seriously, no rush

    Could the VC games and or Wiiware game just be made into an iso so all that has to be done is just add the iso to your hdd just like a wii iso?

    nope, u need to set up triiforce, make sure its working properly, then download or make a forwarder ISO to launch the game via triiforce. I don't VC and Wiiware games could be injected into an ISO and still work properly.

    Thanks Popopinsel, but it's a hard drive issue. My 1TB works fine, but my
    1.5TB won't use the usb-nand although it loads the program from it's fat32 partition a-okay. /:
    It's an issue with Triiforce I'm assuming.

    this look great! Can't wait to download it!

    but just a thought... would it be possible to also add homebrew forwarder ISO creation to the app... so that we can create an mplayer_ce forwarder ISO (for example) that loads SD:/ and USB:/apps/mplayer_ce/boot.dol {with customizable path(s)}. Or perhaps a method of forwarding to an existing channel (like JODI, or whatever other title ID we want to set).

    Anyways, it may be a little early for requests... but thought I'd mention it

    thanks again, i can't wait for u to make it public
