    XFlak's Crazy Intro Videos


    Below you can either view or download some of my Crazy Intro Videos.
    These are videos that you can set to play automatically as soon as you turn on your wii.
    Pressing different buttons during the video will load the channel of your choice (settings are customizable).


    Note: all I did was create the beginning and ending splash screens (most pf the videos themselves are not my work, only a couple are),
    I also resized it and compressed it. I tried lots of different video editors to make a compatible video, and none of them worked,
    but I finally found a way to do it perfectly every time :D

    Thanks WiiCrazy for developing this awesome program!

    NOTE MANY OF MY OLD LINKS ARE BROKEN, BUT ALL MY VIDEOS CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM HERE (updated Jan 2021): http://www.mediafire.com/folder/0ulvn6dekd1fi/Crazy+Intro+Videos+(2) or here https://mega.nz/folder/hpwiHajQ#FK_WPi33BWnPZGc3pYh7Kw
    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

    Download the my Crazy Intro Video Setup Package from HERE.

    This package includes all the files and folders you need to get crazy intro video v0.34 working on your Wii
    (package includes CrazyIntroVideoV0.34.dol, pre-setup crazy intro config files, Priiloader v0.4 installer, and hacks.ini). NOTE, best to use the latest stable version of priiloader and hacks.ini instead. If uncertain, use the version included with ModMii.

    You will also need to download at least one of the videos from below, then continue following the below instructions (see spoilers)
    Copy all the folders inside the COPY_TO_SD folder to the root of your SD card.

    If you don't have Priiloader installed, install it now (rev69 included in package) by
    running the priiloader installer with the HBC. On the new screen, press + to install Priiloader.
    (if the installation fails, try holding B and press + to install Priiloader)
    It should now reboot in the Priiloader menu. If it doesn't, power off the wii, then power it back on and hold reset while it's booting until you see it.

    The priiloader menu is white by default, you can change it to black in the settings if you prefer. If you want, you can install some system menu hacks now (by going to System Menu hacks).

    Now go to Install File. On the new screen, go to your dol and press A to install it. Wait for it to install and return to the main menu.

    -Now go to Settings. We need to change 2 things here:
    * Change autoboot: to File
    * Change return to: to System Menu

    Save the settings and restart the Wii to see the result.

    HOW TO ADD VIDEOS
    -Edit your videos in the following folder SD:\crazyintro\videos\ (this can be changed by editing line 2 of crazyintro.xml)

    -open the theme.xml file in the videos folder (SD:\crazyintro\videos\theme.xml)

    -the contents of that file will look something like this


    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <config version="1.8">
    <properties>
    <VideoFile filename="video1.avi;video2.avi;video3.avi"/>
    </properties>
    </config>


    -the above settings will randomly pick from video1.avi, video2.avi & video3.avi (if a file is missing or incompatible with crazyintrovideo it will automatically boot the system menu (or whatever you have set to autoboot as in the crazyintro.xml, explained later). You can add and remove videos from that list as you please, just make sure to include the extension (.avi for example) and if you have multiple videos be sure to seperate the filenames with a semi-colon (;).

    HOW TO CONFIGURE SHORTCUT BUTTONS
    -Edit the crazyintro.xml file in the videos folder (SD:\crazyintro\crazyintro.xml)

    -the contents of that file will look something like this



    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <config version="1.8" theme="videos">
    <!--
    Along with 0.4, this file should reside in crazyintro folder of your sd card.
    Make note, "config" tag now has a "theme" attribute which selects the theme which
    is the folder name of the theme. Themes should have their own directories under
    crazyintro folder.
    -->
    <properties>
    <Titles>
    <Title id="HBC" title_type="1" title_id="JODI" title_name="Homebrew Channel" />
    <Title id="HBC" title_type="1" title_id="HAXX" title_name="Old Homebrew Channel" />
    <Title id="NET" title_type="1" title_id="HADE" title_name="Internet Channel" />
    <Title id="TETRIS" title_type="1" title_id="WTPP" title_name="Tetris" />
    <Title id="MIICHANNEL" title_type="2" title_id="HACA" title_name="Mii Channel" />
    <Title id="USB" title_type="1" title_id="IDCL" title_name="USB Loader" />

    <!--

    Interruption with the assigned shortcut keys are still possible.
    -->
    <!-- Autoboot and short cut keys configuration, "launches" attribute uses the "id" attribute of
    the Title defined above. -->
    <Autoboot enabled="1" launches="MENU"/>
    <Shortcuts>

    </Shortcuts>
    <!-- Here the thing gets interesting, those who have little children can create hidden channels
    for dangerous applications and can launch them using a sequence of buttons at boot.
    To initiate a hidden shortcut launch, one need to press HOME button on the wiimote first!
    -->
    <HiddenShortcuts>
    <HiddenShortcut buttons="UP,DOWN,LEFT,RIGHT" launches="WAD"/>
    <HiddenShortcut buttons="LEFT,RIGHT,UP,DOWN" launches="WIIX"/>
    </HiddenShortcuts>
    </properties>
    </config>




    - Starting from the beginning of the file, If you look down a little bit, you see <Titles>. We need to change these to what apps you want Crazyintro to boot (crazyintro can boot a different app/channel for every button). It is advised to follow the examples that are already there. Never change the < and />




    For Channels
    - Behind title id = , you put an abbreviation or one word summary of the app/channel between the " ". It MUST be CAPITALS.
    - Type title_type = , and put the correct type (from the list above) between the " "
    the title_type
    = 1 for a title that begins with 00010001
    = 2 for a title that begins with 00010002
    = 4 for a title that begins with 00010004
    = 8 for a title that begins with 00010008


    - Type title_id = (with the _) , and put the titleID of the channel here. There are many lists where you can find the IDs. When downloading a channel it usually includes the ID.
    - Finally, type title_name = , and type the name of the channel
    The final result is: title id="CAPITALS" title_type="number" title_id="channel ID" title_name="Channel name"

    You can set as many titles as you want, but don't forget < and />




    A bit lower, you see <Autoboot enabled="1" launches="MENU"/>
    - You can change autoboot to 0 if you don't want it to autoboot something.
    - Autoboot must be 1 for this: you can change MENU to one of the titles you set above (the CAPITALS). Leave it on MENU to make it boot the system menu.




    Now we see what the actual buttons do. For example: <Shortcut button="A" launches="MENU"/>
    - DO NOT change Shortcut button="A,B,UP,etc."
    - Change the contents of the " " behind launches= to one of the titles you set (the CAPITALS) or MENU for system menu. Make it empty to boot nothing.



    Finally we can set Hidden paths. These are made so not everyone can boot them. This is the ONLY way to boot hidden channels from HideandSeek!
    - Add as many hidden Shortcuts as you want. Make the lines the same as the two examples.
    You can use A, B, UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, -, +, 1 and 2.

    When done, save the file and exit

    HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN VIDEOS WORK WITH CRAZY INTRO VIDEO
    -create your own video using the video editing software of your choice

    -download virtual dub
    -Open the your video file using virtual dub
    -make sure video and audio are set to full processing
    -go to video-->filters--> click add, go to resize, make sure absolute is selected for new size and make sure aspect ratio is disabled. Then make the new size 640 x 368. Click OK, then OK again.
    -go to file and select save as avi (now we're done with virtual dub, but the video file is still going to be HUGE)

    -To compress the video to a manageable size without losing much quality, download and install Auto GK
    -Open AutoGK and open the video file. Select custom size (under Step 3), and set it to whatever size you want, then click add job, then click start.
    -Copy the new file to your SD card and change theme.xml to play the new video.



    I've made two versions of each video, but I only uploaded the first version onto youtube.
    The second version is exactly like the first version except it also includes a short intro/ending displaying a legend.
    You can download both versions for all videos, but the second version with the intro/ending legend is not on youtube.

    I've uploaded both versions of my Wii Graphic video as an example (just because it is one of the smallest videos I made).

    Game-Specific USB Loader Forwarder Intro Videos

    Note that to launch the games featured in the videos, you need to first make a USB Loader Forwarder Channel and install it on your Wii.
    To make this channel/wad, download and use CRAP. Then install the Channel/Wad using a wad manager (ie. YAWMM or MMM). Make sure your crazyintro config file is set up to launch that channels Title ID (set it to launch the game using the same button combinations as seen in the video). Then as long as you have your harddrive (with a copy of the game on it) plugged into the wii, the channel will work, and the crazy intro forwarder to launch the game will also work.

    ouch, that's honestly what I like most about them.

    but u can make any of your own video's, even using the same main vids I did.

    Just find the vid u want on youtube and download it (using vdownloader or equivalent)

    These are really nice to look at but does anyone sit through a video intro each time they turn on their Wii? I'd get tired of that pretty quickly, no matter how cool the video....unless maybe it was very cool AND very short...

    fair enough, I actually made these for myself, and decided to share

    I would love to see you guys make your own, I will be one of the first ones downloading them (and maybe giving a little constructive criticism as payback, lol, jks)

    First u have to install priiloader

    • Load Priiloader via homebrew, and hold down (B) and press (+) to install/update.
    Note: if the installer fails and aborts with the following error message "Found BOOT Unable to read ticket... aborting mission"; try installing Preloader 0.29 JODI before installing Priiloader. To install Preloader 0.29 JODI, just load it via homebrew and press 1 twice to get past the disclaimer and it should install.
    Note: If Preloader 0.29 JODI returns a “System Files Corrupted Message”; fix it by launching Preloader, then go to homebrew, then install/update to Priiloader. Or if you want to keep Preloader 0.29 JODI, instead run Wad Manager, then reinstall your patched system menu IOS (IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad for 4.2). Or uninstall Preloader entirely using one of the methods below.
    • To launch Priiloader or Preloader, turn on your Wii then hold the reset button (if this doesn’t work, remove your SD card, launch Priiloader, then reinsert the card). The options here are fairly self-explanatory, and all user-preference-- so just click around and set things up how you want. Note: If it says it can't find the hacks.ini file when you enter the System Menu Hacks section, you are using an incompatible SD card; try a common brand name, like Sandisk.

    Note: You can find more hacks for your hacks.ini file on wiibrew. Just copy over the text in the hacks.ini file with the text on the site (Be sure to get the one for your version and region). Some of these hacks don't play well with StartPatch (same values). So you must either turn off Priiloader's version or Startpatch's version.


    Then you have to Install a File– You can only have one installed at a time

    o Install crazyintrovideo.dol (or crazyintrovideo-comp.dol if using Preloader 0.29 and under). You may want to change the settings of the crazyintro.xml (found here: SD:\crazyintro\) to load different videos/channels. There is a readme file saved in the same place with details on how to do so; and if you don't know the title of the Channel, you can view this info for wads you’ve downloaded by using “Show Mii Wads”; alternatively, you can find official channels on the Title Database. This does not yet support SDHC cards.

    o Note: the last wiimote to be synced to your system is the only wiimote that can skip or make a selection during the intro video. So to change which wiimote has control, re-sync only that remote (re-sync by simultaneously pressing the red buttons on the console and the wiimote. Reconnecting via the system menu will not work)

    EDIT: for this to launch, you must have a compatible SD card inserted in your wii with the files you downloaded from above saved to it. You also have to change the settings to boot to the installed file

    there is a 'bug' that allows loading it from a usb drive (i call this a bug because the app was never intended for this functionality)... if u do not have an sd card inserted in your wii, and launch a forwarder channel that looks only for an SD app, it will reset your wii and load the videos from your fat 32 usb (provided you have the files saved to it). It will continue to load the vids from a usb until u unplug it (turning it off fully - to red - will still allow booting vids from usb when u turn it back on)

    Edit:
    as long as your drive is turned on, or awake when powering on the wii, it should also work from USB (although it is less reliable than off of SD)

    what I meant to ask was if I can use a SDHC card? I have a 8GB SDHC card that I am using now instead of the lesser SD card which is only 2GB, also about the Wii remote buttons such as Press A for the Menu and such, can I change those buttons to load other functions instead of those that you have listed? thanks

    no, thats why u press a button to load w/e channel u want!! I never sit through the whole thing, but what I like is that any1 can turn on my wii, and with the press of a button load w/e they want... in other words, u dont have to memorize your settings!

    @bnm81002, yes you can change the settings and what buttons load what channels (that was in my long winded response earlier, lol)

    if u cant load usb loaders via homebrew or channels, that has nothing to do with the crazy intro.

    If you can't load them via my crazy intro, it means you don't have the channels installed on your wii or they are named differently. For example, if you have don't have a usbloader gx channel (ID=UNEO), pressing the "B" during the crazy intro will not work (as I have configured it). You must either edit the crazyintro.xml file to launch a different channel when B is pressed, or you must install a channel with ID=UNEO for it to launch.

    to "uninstall" crazy intro entirely, just change your autoboot settings to priiloader to anything other than the installed file (or you can install a new file, or use nandclean to remove the installed file from your nand)

    also, if you turn your wii on and there isn't an sd card in your wii, it will load the system menu by default
