From Custom Mario Kart
Jump to: navigation, search

Wiimm has made a patcher for MKWii and one for other games which patches the server addresses in the game to play on Wiimmfi after May 20th.

How-To

To patch an Image for the new server, you have to download Wiimms patching tool from his website:

Both patchers support also the ALTWFC/DWC server.

Your Wii needs Homebrew, and you need an USB-Loader to dump an image of Mario Kart Wii onto an USB-Stick or USB-Drive.

Now follow these steps to patch your MKWii, any custom-variants or other games to the new server:

  1. Extract the content of the archive to any folder.
  2. Copy all images you want to patch into this folder.
  3. Windows-User now start the create-image.bat, Linux- and Mac-User start the create-image.sh.
  4. Now all games in the folder get patched. After patching, you find the new images in the folder wiimmfi-images. You can now copy those to your HDD or USB-Stick.

Playing from a real disc

MrBean35000vr has developed a "Wiimmfi Patcher" homebrew app to play Wii games online from a real disc without the need to rip and patch an ISO. The user must have the Homebrew Channel installed in order to run this app.

Notes

You should take care about the following when using a patched image:

  • If you want to keep one of your old profiles, you should first connect with one of those. It may lead to problems with your old profiles if you first generate a new one.
  • You can only use your old profiles. if the server knows the related nickname. To enable your old profile, you can:
    • enter your Friend code into the web formula (only works if you had registered friends on the official server)
    • start the homebrew app to dump the needed data out of the savegame.
  • If you get error 60000, then you are trying to connect with an unknown profile. Wait a day, because the server database is only updated twice per day.
  • If you get an error code starting with 23XXX, look here: http://wiimmfi.de/error
