GUIDE: how to install custom VC games
hi all heres is my guide(i wrote this one myself because i have a few of my own files in there that arnt in the original downloads) if there are any mistakes please tell me because its pretty long so it was hard to really find mistakes.
NOTES: Dont ask where to get .wad files or roms I,mods and other members(shouldnt or be banned) will not upload them here, just find them your self.
:this WILL work with vista.
:I have made the .bat files to make things easier, do not distribute with out my concent, the
other files are propety of someone else but have been avaliable to use by anyone.
1st download this
and THIS(not in the 1st package thanks for the ups J_C_103
:custom made files for easier use as it made things long to type things out
you will need to find these files your self
:Your own roms(nes snes etc..)
:your own wii's key.bin(i dont know where to get this dont ask)
NOTE: you will need E.G. a z64 rom of zelda OOT if you have used zelda OOT
as the title.wad.
:your own hex editor. i use "hex workshop"
for future refrence rename the E.G. zeldaOOT.n64 rom to original.n64 and
rename the rom you want to inject to inject.n64. it will make sence later
on.id say that useing a bigger .wad file is better for this as it can cause
problems later on if the original.rom is bigger than the title.wad
1st unrar the files to C:/packer, make sure it is this directory otherwise
the custom .bat files will not work, and it will make things hard for you
(which is why i make these bat files)
copy your key.bin in to the packer folder and rename to common-key.bin
next go into the "packer" folder and copy your own .wad game into the "wad"
folder and rename to title.wad
next run the "WAD_UNPACKER.bat" file and let it finnish, it takes about 2
now run the "RENAMER.bat",it will open and close quickly and check that there are 4 files in the
000100014e414XXX folder called "title.tmd/cert/tik/trailer"
now were going to do the magic and get the rom out of the emulator
open up the "00000005.app" file which is in the 000100014e414XXX folder
with a hexeditor and "original.n64" file, now highlight the 1st few bytes
i do the 1st 16 as shown here.
copy these then go back onto the 00000005.app
in the hexeditor and press Ctrl+f, make sure the field is on hex copy the
1st 16 bytes into the space and search
----alternativly after much use of this i found out that by searching for this
803712400000000F string, it will be the start of the rom if your rom doesnt get the string match
then simply check how many bytes the "original.rom" is then search for that string on
00000005.app usualy on a 32mb rom the end will be 02000000 search for that, check that it is something like FF and then the next byte will be something random
USUALY! this is not a working tested method it is my method of badly dumped roms this method can also save time on getting the n64 rom needed----
this is the start of the rom, now cut(CUT, not copy, we want to leave the
actual rom on its own in the end) everything befor the start of the rom
paste this into a new file and save this as 00000005-part1.app(thats
in hex workshop do this 1st click at the start of the file then do this
then type in the block which is befor the start of the rom, you can find the number needed here
now scroll down and check that you have highlighted the correct amount of bytes, which is everything befor in this case "803712400000000f" you may have been over by one byte i used to be untill i knew how to use this,
now go back onto the rom and highlight the last offset
copy this, go back onto the 00000005.app and search for this, this is the end of the rom
cut everything after the end of the rom and paste it into a new file
save this new file as 00000005-part3.app
now save the rom(the rest of the data in 00000005.app) as 0000000-part2.app
DO NOT OVERWRITE THE 00000005.app FILE! we still need this
now open up the 00000005-part2.app and inject.rom in the hex editor
and check that inject.rom is the same size as 00000005-part2.app
if inject.rom is smaller than 00000005-part2.app,then simply inject FF into
inject.rom untill it is the same size as 00000005-part2.app
roms will be perfect sizes 2048 4096 ect so it shouldnt be hard to add the
bytes in if the rom is 8mb in size and 00000005-part2.app is 16mb in size
just tell the hex editor to add 8000000 bytes, then sibtract or add more FF
untill they are the same.
then save inject.rom as 00000005-part2-rom.app in the packer\ 000100014e414XXX
folder.rename 00000005.app to 00000005-old.app
now move all the files into to packer folder and run the
00000005.app packer.bat then
BACKUP title.tmd 1st so u can use these again
now open up title.tmd in the hex editer and press Ctrl+f and copy the
characters from the sha checker.bat(from the 00000005-old.app)in to the
field and press search, you will have to do this manualy
now highlight all the characters that sha checker
says then replace these with the new SHA thats under 00000005.app in the
sha checker then save the title.tmd
now to pack it all together run wadpacker.bat and it will create a new
title.wad in the packer folder.
copy this to your SD card run the wad installer and then your good to go
some roms wont work so just try a different rom if thats the case
if you want to insert a new rom do this
delete 00000005-part2-rom.app and 00000005.app and then rename the new rom.
open the hex edit and open 00000005-part2.app and 00000005-part2-rom.app
check there the same and add FF as needed to the new rom
run 00000005.app packer.
now run the sha checker and replace the 40bytes from 00000005-old.app in the
sha checker with the bytes that are under 00000005.app in the title.tmd
save this, then run wad_packer.bat
and a new title.wad is made, note it will overwrite the VC title on your wii
so you can only use one at a time on your wii. unless you use different
