    I use Windows XP, and the "Make HBC" command in all of the tools I have used fail to work correctly. Perhaps it wasnt ported from linux correctly, I am not sure. Or perhaps it is my terrible PC though I dont know why only a meta.xml is being made when it says that only a boot.dol and icon would be made and that a meta.xml would have to be made manually.

    The purpose of "Make HBC":

    Right now, no matter what I do, the only thing that gets outputted is a meta.xml file. I dont see any icon or boot.dol file anywhere in the directories that are being made! [​IMG]

    My main reason for this functionality: So I can inject each boot.dol into a channel.

    I have already started by extracting the banner/icon/sound from each game and now I just need the boot.dol for it to be complete.

    This is what it looks like on my system menu:

    All it is right now are empty shells just waiting to be complete. Please help them to be complete!

    It copies the files icon.png and boot.dol from the directory you executed wbfs from, if they don't exist they won't get copied.

    You need to have the boot.dol and icon.png in your wbfs directory.

    Thanks for the help.

    I can not figure out how to make the dol function properly as an injected channel as I am guessing the meta.xml is required.

    Is there no hope as to using the original game's banner/icon/sound on the system menu to launch the game?

    i guess the boot.dol together with makehbc was modified to read game id from its path, so make that dol to a channel wab will not work.

    channel forworder might work i think

    Its a SoftMii Matrix Theme.

    Currently only works on 3.2, but soon they will start porting themes over to 4.0
