Riivolution is an on-the-fly game patcher created by AerialX, tueidj, Tempus, and megazig for use with retail discs. It allows users to place content on their SD or USB devices, as well as on a RiiFS server, which will be read by the game during regular play. It is used by several custom track distributions in order to run modified tracks without a patched ISO. Riivolution is supported on console and Dolphin since version 5.0-15407. For older versions of Dolphin, you will need to patch your ISO.
Riivolution uses XML files to load custom content from an external filesystem. To use this, have your XML point to a folder with all the custom content inside and place the XML in the "riivolution" folder. The format of these XML files is described here, and templates are available here.
Does Riivolution work with my backups or USB loaders?
No. And that's not a bug.
Does Riivolution work with my PAL/NTSC/JAP Wii/game?
Does Riivolution work on my Wii U?
It does now! In vWii mode (it does not work with Wii U games) Riivolution can be run or installed through Smash Stack, other game exploits, or the Homebrew Channel if it's already installed.
What IOS does it need installed?
Riivolution requires an updated IOS37; if you're on System Menu 4.2 or 4.3 you don't need to do anything. If it's not installed or the proper version it will be installed the first time Riivolution is run.
Alternatively, you can also use NUSD or DOP-IOS to install it - with all patches disabled.
Does Riivolution work with Game X?
I probably haven't played it, but yes, it should; try it. If it doesn't work, report it - some games known to reload IOS will require specific patches to work.
Games that have specifically been tested include Fatal Frame 4, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Rock Band, among others.
What does the "Install" button do?
It will install a Riivolution channel onto your System Menu for easy access. This can always be uninstalled.
Can I use Ocarina / Gecko codes with it?
Normally, Riivolution just supports direct memory patches. However, Riivolution supports a patching method that can be used with the Gecko OS code handler.
Read more about that here.
Uhh, how do I use this?
As a user, you need to either download patch packages made by someone else or make your own.
Network support? Awesome, how do I use it?
