    A question: i managed to make this work on GC iso but i cannot do the same on a Wii one.
    I extract the Wii iso with Wiiscrubber, i replaced files with the ones from the mod (copy the new folder over the older one) but then i cannot compose the new iso. I can't see an option in Wii scrubber. I tried using a program called Folder2iso and it makes an iso file but it is not recognised as a Wii iso.

    Any tips on how to compose with Wiiscrubber?

    This looks pretty cool! I always wanted to see the city this way.

    But I wanted to ask, I like the Wii version a little more (aiming the bow and other things are much more fun to me).

    When you say the "maps being mirrored", do you mean the mini maps, or the place itself?

    In case of being the minimaps, what would be needed to "flip" them so it goes along with the Wii Version?

    You will want to export as .WBFS in Wii scrubber and dolphin/ishiiruka will be able to use that format.

    The place itself and minimaps will be mirrored. This was due to making link being right handed for the Wii version.

    I'll see to make a seperate build for Wii, it should be a simple change to match my changes I made manually.

    Thank you for replying :)
    I should note that i intend to use this on real hardware. I successfully did the GC iso mod with the files you provided and it runs perfectly on my modded Wii.

    Since i liked it so much, i decided to mod my Wii Zelda TP iso as well.

    So here's what i did.
    1. I downloaded and extracted your files.
    2. I copied my TP iso to my PC.
    3. I open Wii Scrubber and i select the iso.
    4. I load the iso and i select the data partition
    5. I extract the data partition to a folder i named "root"
    6. After Wii Scrubber correctly finishes extracting the files, i copy over the ''res' folder from your download to the "root" folder where the iso files are located
    7. This is where i hit a dead end. How can i compose a Wii iso or wbfs file from the folder contents? I tried a program called folder2iso but it gave me an iso file that was not recognised as a Wii iso file.

    I don't know, maybe it's cause i used a wrong Wii scrubber version or maybe i messed up on one of the steps?

    Thank you for your time and work.

    I took a look into that.

    Try with Wii Backup Fusion. It has an option to select a folder, and create a WBFS/ISO file out of it.

    Have the extracted iso in a folder, open the tool, and select it. It will load the folder as if it was a disk image. Then you click on "Transfer to image" and a new window will appear with a bunch of options like format of the image (ISO, WBFS; etc..). Choose the format and it will start creating the image.

    You can also extract files from isos/wbfs with it.
