Send your save files to Leseratte and read this thread! Wiimmfi Introduction: Wiimm had been analysing the Mario Kart Wii network traffic since November 2012 and had already written a helper tool named MKW-ANA. And so he decided to get together with Leseratte and other people to create the Wii-Server Project, known as "Wiimmfi" to replace Nintendo's servers for Mario Kart Wii and for other games if they were to have been shutdown. Current Server Carrying Capacity: 500 Players | Last Update: May 18th 2015 Previous Server Carrying Capacity: 400 Players | September 6th 2014 First Server Carrying Capacity: 300 Players | May 21st 2014 Current List of *Enabled* Supported Games: http://wiimmfi.de/stat?disab=hide&all=1&test=sep Current List of *Disabled* Supported Games: http://wiimmfi.de/stat?test=sep&disab=sep Game Overview Statistics: Number of supported games: 106 (out of 416 total) Number of supported game variants: 193 Number of game variants in test mode: 120 Number of working game variants (with issues or full support): 73 Number of disabled games: 17 Source: http://wiimmfi.de/stat?base=1 Preparing a Wii for Wiimmfi: WARNING: DOING THIS WILL VOID YOUR WII'S WARRANTY. DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU DO NOT WANT IT VOIDED. Spoiler *LETTERED STEPS INDICATE A CHOICE. CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER OR NONE AT ALL. DO NOT CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE. 1. Have any SD Card (2 GB SanDisk recommended) and make sure it has a lot of space on it. The amount of space you need depends on how you choose to use Wiimmfi; I recommend at least 1 GB of free space. If you have a SDHC card that is fine too, but they aren't compatible with a few applications. 2. Turn on your Wii and go to Wii Settings then click "Internet" and then "Console Information". 3. Write down/remember/somehow keep your MAC Address in front of you and then go to http://please.hackmii.com where you are going to download the exploit known as LetterBomb and enter your MAC Address there and your System Menu version (U = NTSC-U, E = PAL, J = NTSC-J, K = NTSC-K). 4. Bundle the HackMii Installer if you want the Homebrew Channel, aka HBC, which you will need in order to play other games online outside of Mario Kart Wii easily (it can also be done with Riivolution only, but it's complicated). Don't bundle it if you're just going to be playing Mario Kart Wii and have no need of Homebrew. 5. Now fill out the captcha and then click to cut either the red or blue wire (doesn't matter). 6. Extract the contents of this ZIP file to the ROOT of your SD Card (the drive letter). You can delete the readmes after extracting. 6a. (if you didn't bundle the HackMii Installer) Download this file and put it on your SD card root: http://www.mediafire.com/download/525k67j9asffvdm/boot(2).elf Rename it to boot.elf. 7. Turn your Wii on and go to the Wii Message Board. Look at the recent week for a red letter with a bomb on it. Click it. 8. After your Wii spazzes out which is completely normal for an exploit, which is what LetterBomb is, Riivolution or the HackMii Installer will load (exploits are also what void the warranty so once you do this, you cannot undo it). 9. You're left with two options, you can either: 9a. (if you didn't bundle the HackMii installer) Install the Riivolution channel then exit to the Wii Menu. 9b. (if you bundled the HackMii Installer) Wait for HackMii installer to determine whether HBC can be installed on your Wii or not. After that, if it says "BootMii can be installed as Boot2", you have the chance of getting the BEST BRICK-PROTECTION POSSIBLE FOR ANY WII and you should jump for joy. If it doesn't and says "BootMii can be installed as IOS" (which is for most Wii owners), then your Wii is newer and you can't get BootMii as Boot2. Install HBC (which also installs BootMii as Boot2 or IOS, depending on how old your Wii is) and then exit the HackMii Installer and go to the Wii Menu. 10. Delete the "HAEA" folder in the following location on your SD Card: SD Card:\private\wii\title. This contains LetterBomb and you shouldn't keep an exploit after you've already used it; it's risky. Preparing a Wii U's vWii Mode for Wiimmfi: WARNING: DOING THIS WILL VOID YOUR WII U'S WARRANTY. DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU DO NOT WANT IT VOIDED. Spoiler *LETTERED STEPS INDICATE A CHOICE. CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER OR NONE AT ALL. DO NOT CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE. 1. Have any SD Card (2 GB SanDisk recommended) and make sure it has a lot of space on it. The amount of space you need depends on how you choose to use Wiimmfi; I recommend at least 1 GB of free space. An SDHC card will NOT work! You also will need a working Super Smash Bros. Brawl (SSBB) game disc with a data file that has NO stages in the Stage Builder; it should be empty. 2. Download the exploit known as SmashStack from here: http://wiiubrew.org/w/images/4/4e/Smashstack.zip 3. Extract the contents of the ZIP to the root of your SD Card (the drive letter). *PAL/NTSC-K users must follow these additional steps in this guide: http://web.archive.org/web/20140326220421/http://giantpune.zzl.org/smashStackPK.html 3a. If you want Riivolution only, download this file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/525k67j9asffvdm/boot(2).elf and put it on the root. Rename it to boot.elf. 3b. If you want the Homebrew Channel (HBC) or more, download this file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/07mj83x8h0w0f0c/bootmini.elf and this file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/v3rhddr6cst34h5/boot(3).elf and put them on the root. Rename the second one to boot.elf 4. Launch SSBB and go to the Stage Builder. 5. After the game spazzes out, which is normal for an exploit, either Riivolution or the HackMii Installer will load (exploits are also what void the warranty so once you do this, you cannot undo it). 6. You're left with two options, you can either: 6a. (if you're loading Riivolution) Install the Riivolution channel then exit to the vWii Menu. 6b. (if you're loading the HackMii Installer) Wait for HackMii installer to determine whether HBC can be installed on your Wii or not. Then Install HBC and then exit the HackMii Installer and go to the vWii Menu. 7. Delete the "RSBX" (E = NTSC-U, P = PAL, J = NTSC-J, K = NTSC-K) folder in the following location on your SD Card: SD Card:\private\wii\title. This contains SmashStack itself and you shouldn't keep an exploit after you've already used it; it's risky. Getting/Using Wiimmfi on a Properly Prepared System: *LETTERED OR ROMAN NUMERAL'ED STEPS INDICATE A CHOICE. CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER OR NONE AT ALL. DO NOT CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE. Method 1 (MKWII ONLY!) - Custom Tracks Grand Prix Revolution (CTGP-R) | EASY: Spoiler 1. Download the latest version of CTGP-R from here: http://www.chadsoft.co.uk and extract it to the root of the SD Card after it has finished downloading. 2. Depending on what you did... you can either: 2a. (if you have Riivolution only) Load Riivolution and then make sure the option "CTGP Revolution Channel" is set to "Disabled" then turn "Copy MKW Save to the SD Card" on "Enabled" then click "LAUNCH". MKW will load regularly and it will copy your save file from your system memory to your SD Card. Now load Riivolution again and set the option "CTGP Revolution Channel" to "Enabled" and then click "LAUNCH". 2b. (if you have Homebrew) Load the Homebrew Channel then load the CTGP-R app... (you won't be able to copy your save over doing this, so I recommend 2.b.i.) or 2b.i. Load HBC then load the Riivolution HBC app--install it to your Wii Menu as a channel if you want. Then do the same thing as 2a. 3. After the CTGP-R channel loads, follow the on-screen instructions and set up your preferences (I recommend haνing automatic updates ON and Save game on SD Card? ON). When it prompts you to update, do so. Once the update finishes, you will be able to go online. For more information about CTGP-R, check out this thread: http://www.forums.mkboards.com/thre...0-and-upwards-no-homebrew-channel-needed.380/ Method 2 (ALL SUPPORTED GAMES) - The Homebrew Channel Wiimmfi Patcher | INTERMEDIATE: Spoiler 1. Download the HBC-based Wiimmfi patcher from here: http://chadsoft.co.uk/downloads/autowiimmfipatcher0.4.zip and extract it to the root of the SD Card. 2. Put your disc in and load HBC, then load the Wiimmfi patcher app (YOU HAVE TO DO THIS EVERY TIME YOU WANT TO PLAY ONLINE). 3. Watch this video for more information: Method 3 (ALL SUPPORTED GAMES) - Riivolution | HARD: Spoiler 1. Download WiiScrubber from here: http://www.wii-homebrew.com/download/nintendo-wii-downloads/pc-tools/wiiscrubber/download, then set it up, and then extract the files main.dol and StaticR.rel for the ISOs of the supported games you want to play online. 2. Patch the two files to Wiimmfi using a tool that can do it. 3. Make a folder structure on your SD card and place your two patched files in it. 4. Make an XML that is coded to show options on the Riivolution menu for your folder structure and is able to load your folder structure. 5. Launch the game and you should be able to play online. YOU MUST LAUNCH USING THE RETAIL DISC, THAT IS ALL RIIVOLUTION ACCEPTS. Method 4 (ALL SUPPORTED GAMES) - Wiimmfi ISO Patcher + USB Loading | ADVANCED: Spoiler 1. Have a decently sized USB Hard Drive or USB Stick. I recommend at least 50 GB (though I use 8 GB, which sucks). 2. Softmod your Wii or Wii U's vWii mode. Read this to learn how to softmod your Wii and this to learn how to softmod your Wii U's vWii mode. FOLLOW THE GUIDES VERY CAREFULLY OR YOU COULD BRICK YOUR WII OR WII U'S VWII MODE. 3. Set up your drive for USB loading. I recommend the format FAT32, that's what I use. Check out this guide for more information on setting up FAT32: http://www.wiihacks.com/showthread.php?t=96770. You can also check out the other guides for the other formats. Also check this out if you want to play Gamecube games: http://www.wiihacks.com/showthread.php?t=103429 4. Obtain the ISOs of the games you want to play online somehow. MKBoards does not promote piracy so do not ask how to obtain one publicly here! You can just LEGALLY rip your purchased game discs into ISOs using USB Loader GX, the WiiFlow USB Loader, Configurable USB Loader, or the Homebrew Application CleanRip. This is highly recommended over illegal methods and usually gives ISOs that have no errors! 5. Depending on the game in question... 5a. (for MKWII) Download this and extract the contents into any folder on your computer: http://download.wiimm.de/wiimmfi/patcher/mkw-wiimmfi-patcher-v3.7z. 5b. (for other games) Download this and extract the contents into any folder on your computer: http://download.wiimm.de/wiimmfi/patcher/wiimmfi-patcher-v3.7z. 6. Copy all ISOs you want to patch into this folder. 7. Windows Users start the file called patch-wiimmfi.bat. Mac/Linux users start the file called patch-wiimmfi.sh . 8. When all the games are patched, they will be in a folder called wiimmfi-images. 9. Copy the contents of this folder to your properly configured USB Drive or USB Stick. 10. Load the patched ISOs for the supported games using your favorite USB Loader and then you can play online on them. Setting Your In-Game Region on Wiimmfi for the Wii U's vWii Mode: By default, Wiimmfi will dump you in the middle of the ocean if you use a Wii U's vWii mode to access it, and the original way to change your region via the Settings menu does not work for vWii. To change your region on vWii, follow the steps below: *Credit to @CaptainToad67867 for discovering this!
