Fund Raiser – Help SkeenDev Grow (Wii misc)

Collecting donations for Eke-Eke, read on:

From http://www.tehskeen.com

So the Nintendo Wii has been cracked to allow homebrew to run on the system without the need of a modchip and some small programs ranging from a MP3 player to a mini-distribution of Linux have surfaced. Needless to say this is a good step forward for the Nintendo Wii homebrew community.

Soon we’ll see a full fledged version of LibOGC that is compatible with the Nintendo Wii and will eventually make use of it’s special capabilities that weren’t present in GameCube mode such as the USB ports, SD Card port, WiiMote and Wifi interfaces.

With this in mind, I’m sure a lot of you would like to see our current SkeenDev emulators take advantage of these capabilities along with more such as the extra RAM and horsepower the processor puts out. Eke-Eke is one of the maintainers of the majority of our SkeenDev emulators including Genesis Plus, GnuBoyGX, Hu-Go GC, NeoPop and SMSPlus. He’s spent many of days and his free time developing and adding features to these emulators without asking for a dime.

He is also still doing this with his next major addition being the ability to play the Sega Genesis version of Virtua Racing in Genesis Plus! I’m sure a lot of you can appreciate his hard work and why not show a little of that appreciation by “donating” in this Fund Raiser for eke-eke.

Basically, he needs a Nintendo Wii to develop on. This Fund Raiser wasn’t his idea – it was mine. I just asked him if it were okay with him and he said he’d be honored if anyone could help him obtain a Nintendo Wii by donating.

So if you have a spare $2, $5 or $10 laying around and would like to contribute the to community I’m taking donations on behalf of eke-eke via PayPal to get him a Nintendo Wii. If you’re interested in helping out click below to donate!

2. Extract and copy the file called padding to your SD card
3. Use dd or writeelf (for windows) to copy MP3PLAY.elf to (physical)sector 2048
4. On the SD card, create a DIR called MP3 in root and place all your .mp3’s in here

play it, once playing, there’s instructions on how to go back/next song. Also press
Y whilst browsing mp3’s to return to the exploit. (You may also swap sd cards at
the menu of the mp3 player but only before going to the exploit)

Twilight Hack v0.1 (Alpha 2) (Wii Application)

Team Twiizers released an update to their Wii homebrew loader/exploit.

How to install:

Extract the zip archive into any folder.

Backup your old Zelda save if you want to, by copying data.bin out of *SD Card*/private/wii/title/RZDP or *SD Card*/private/wii/title/RZDE and into another folder.
If you have a PAL Zelda game (identified by the code “RVL-RZDP-0A-0 JPN” around the inside on the shiny side of the disc), copy the file rzdp.bin (from the zip archive you extracted) into *SD Card*/private/wii/title/RZDP/data.bin.

If you have an NTSC later revision Zelda game (identified by the code “RVL-RZDE-0A-2 USA” around the inside on the shiny side of the disc), copy the file rzde2.bin (from the zip archive you extracted) into *SD Card*/private/wii/title/RZDE/data.bin.

If you have any other NTSC revision Zelda game (usually identified by any other code involving the letters “RZDE” around the inside on the shiny side of the disc), copy the file rzde.bin (from the zip archive you extracted) into *SD Card*/private/wii/title/RZDE/data.bin.

Now, put the SD card and Zelda into your Wii and turn it on. Go into Wii Options –> Data Management –> Save Data –> Wii. Find your Zelda save, click on it, and click “Erase”, and click Yes. Now, go into SD card, and select the “Twilight Hack” save (the icon says “Wiibrew Loader”). Click copy, and yes. Now, go back out of that menu and start the game. Select the first save file (called Twilight Hack), complete the brightness setting, and talk to the man in front of you. What will later be the ELF loader will load.

If you are a PAL user and are experiencing a line of text lost off the bottom, try changing your TV type under Wii options –> Wii settings –> screen to 576i (50hz). Please could PAL users add a post to the right section to say whether they had this problem or not with non-576i settings, as I would like to know if everyone has this problem or if it’s just my TV.
