Die deutschsprachige Installationsanleitung findet ihr hier.

Tutorial

Introduction

The script files (also known as batch files) create-image.bat and create-image.sh convert an original Mario Kart Wii ISO (PAL or NTSC) into a new one called Wiimms Mario Kart Fun YYYY-DD.

*.bat files are used by Windows users and *.sh files by Unix users.

This conversion only works on hard drives that support hardlinks. NTFS and all modern Unix file systems support hardlinks; FAT does not.

Requirements

  • A backup of an original Mario Kart Wii ISO (PAL or NTSC) in one of the following formats: ISO, CISO, WBFS, WDF or WIA.
  • A Wii with installed cIOS or IOS with the Trucha Bug enabled.
  • 6 GB of free space (+1.5 GB for every additional ISO).

Conversion

  1. Download a distribution of your choice (see below) and unpack the TAR archive inside the TXZ archive.
  2. Copy the Mario Kart Wii ISO into the root directory of the previously created directory structure.
  3. Unix users should execute chmod a+x *.sh to make the shell scripts executable.
  4. Windows users should start the batch file named create-image.bat. All other users can start the file named create-image.sh.
  5. After starting the script, it asks for some conversion details.
    • Enter the preferred conversation language.
      • de for German.
      • en for English.
      • es for Spanish.
      • kr for Korean.
    • Enter the preferred game language.
    • Enter the preferred track names.
    • Enter the preferred ISO output.
      • The newer versions of this patcher supports a Riivolution template. Enter riiv and continue at the next section.
    • Enter the preferred savegame setting.
      • no: The game will use the original savegame.
      • yes: The game will use a newly generated savegame, which doesn't interfere with the original one whatsoever.
  6. The new images will be created in the sub directory named new-image/ with a size of about 1.4 GB. The following options are:
    • Copy the new ISO image into your game folder.
    • Add the new image with a WBFS Manager to your WBFS drive.
    • Burn the new image with a burning tool.
  7. After all is done, the setup can be removed.

Creating a Riivolution template

The Riivolution template is stored into the directory riiv-sd-card/. Copy all files in that directory to your SD Card and let it replace everything on there.

Diagnostic Scripts

The ISO Patcher contains 2 diagnostic scripts.

  • view-images.bat and view-images.sh will print a table with all the current directory detected ISO images.
  • verify-images.bat and verify-images.sh verify all detected ISO images in the current directory. The content of each image will be decrypted to verify the stored SHA1 checksums. This process takes some time.
