Riivolution is an on-the-fly game patcher for use with retail discs. It allows users to place content on their SD or USB devices, which will be read by the game during regular play. It is used by several Custom Track Distributions in order to run modified courses without a patched ISO. Note that Riivolution is console only so to run Riivolution mods on Dolphin you will need to patch your ISO.
Riivolution uses XML files to load custom content from an SD Card. To use this, have your XML point to a folder with all the custom content inside and place the XML in the "riivolution" folder.
Riivolution Generator is a tool, that can create files needed by Riivolution using other files as source. The algorithm is simple.
- Extract the original ISO image
- Set the modified-time to a date in the past (2008-01-01)
- Run the patching process
- Copy the modified files into the SD Card folder.
- Create a XML based on the list of modified files.
RiiFS is a filesystem that allows for streaming of data from your computer to Riivolution.

In a CT Distribution via Riivolution, the game can freeze when a player completes a lap. This occurs for some Wii users.
