woot

I said loading a game from the disk channel isnt working.

#10 Updated by bkchaw over 10 years ago

well, maybe he meant starting game from disc channel isnt working. it used to work.

#11 Updated by lpfaint99 over 10 years ago

my mistake, I've never had running a game from the channel work

#12 Updated by ChaosCode over 10 years ago

wii menu now locks up after the warning screen. I think this is related to changes
Nolan made to the watch dog.

#13 Updated by sskkiipp over 10 years ago

Wii Menu locked up before r3940, if you mean that change. Only works in Interpreter
Mode (Jit - Error).

#14 Updated by lpfaint99 over 10 years ago

works in jitil as well. see issue 1182

#15 Updated by sskkiipp over 10 years ago

so, is there anyone who could enhance and repair jit ? :) For me it's just too
complicated :D

#16 Updated by XTra.KrazzY over 10 years ago

It's not that complicated, once you get to know it

#17 Updated by ChaosCode over 10 years ago

I know that you said your code caused a tbl memory error but after talking with ector
we agree the code should still be committed so we can try to figure out why,

#19 Updated by Anonymous over 10 years ago

TLB!!!! D:

also that is a term which we really should replace with "MMU", but meh.

#20 Updated by ChaosCode over 10 years ago

lpfaint99 provided a patch but I was told its to hacky for commit and it causes TBL/MMU
errors on some versions of the menu. can someone with a real wii test the menu and see
what is going on when www.arc is accessed. thanks.

http://pastie.org/658525

#21 Updated by lpfaint99 over 10 years ago

really really hacky (lazy :p) code that checks for .arc file access and unpacks it to
a dir of the same name
http://pastie.org/658525

#22 Updated by ChaosCode over 10 years ago

I'm making progress using this patch, reason it was erroring out is because you were
deleting the file and the IOS was still trying to read the file.

#23 Updated by ChaosCode over 10 years ago

after messing with this and talking to booto and shuffle2. it would seem this is the
wrong way to do it. some kind of interface layer needs to be built for U8 files. Way
over my head.

#24 Updated by ChaosCode over 10 years ago

Ok, some more info on this. I did this mod with the help of booto. This causes the
emu to crash with unknown pointer issues. with out more help from dev's that have a
wii and know what they are doing this issue has zero chance of ever being fixed.

        else if (!File::IsDirectory(Filename.c_str()))
        {
         //check for arc file
            const char *result = strstr(Filename.c_str(), 

".arc");
if(result && result[4] == 0x00)
{
WARN_LOG(WII_IPC_FILEIO, "%s Not a directory but
is a ARC file - return FS_RESULT_OK", Filename.c_str());
ReturnValue = FS_RESULT_OK;
break;
}
else
{
WARN_LOG(WII_IPC_FILEIO, "%s Not a directory -
return FS_INVALID_ARGUMENT", Filename.c_str());
ReturnValue = FS_INVALID_ARGUMENT;
break;
}
}

issue 3186 has been merged into this issue.

#52 Updated by lpfaint99 over 9 years ago

updating since i cannot get on irc currently :/
Booting from disc channel should work with all pal wii games
booting pal channels should work with system menu versions < 3

current issue with system menu versions 3+ seems to be related to the tik files of the installed channels
to see the effects of this you can test by
removing the check for later system menu versions in ipc_es
with a clean nand (no nand dump)
install sysmenu 3 or higher
test and working with the disc channel
install a pal or region free channel (mii channel)
menu now says files are corrupted
remove tik for mii channel
menu now is back to only the disc channel

note: tested with mii channel v4 v6
separate issue with photochannel 1.1, it seems that even with a tik it is not displayed in sysmenu 3+

#53 Updated by lpfaint99 over 9 years ago

ssbb pal tries to reload ios 00000001/00000024 with eslaunch currently as indicated in r6191 comments

additional items that need to be implemented

Fix ES_Launch so that wm doesnt need to be disconnected and reconnected after being called
.
all system menus seem to suffer from a Semi/Partial Brick, sysmenus 3.0+ may be a banner brick

#56 Updated by marcel.werner3 over 9 years ago

are these works mainly to make the Wii menu more functional (to make games start from out of the menu) or also to get those games to boot which fail because of whatever they are calling the menu for? (like Metroid Trilogy etc.)

#57 Updated by skidau over 9 years ago

Yeh, we'll try to make the channels show in the newer versions of the system menu and hopefully be able to successfully launch them. From there, our understanding of how the Wii does "multiboot" will be good enough to fix games like Metroid Trilogy. That's the plan, anyway.

#58 Updated by marcel.werner3 over 9 years ago

Sounds good enough for me :)

#59 Updated by giaga7 over 9 years ago

Good guys!:) I support you, I thinks fixing wii system menu, will fix also a lot of wiiware games and some other games, and maybe I will be able to go to menu from a game!;)

#61 Updated by moinonono over 9 years ago

Hi LPFaint, I'm the one who wrote a message in r6198 review (with aitorzubiala username).
In that message I wrote "the game says that I don't have space for the save". I did try with a lot of games, and yes, more or less are all the games which give me that message!! I use SystemMenu v194, Dolphin r6200 x64, and Windows 7 x64. Here is the list of the games a try to launch from SysMenu:
- Alice in Wonderland, Driver, Indiana Jones, Mario & Sonic Winter Sports, Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario, PES 2010, Ready 2 Rumble, Super Smash Bross Brawl, Star Wars Force, Super Mario Galaxy 1&2, Tiger Woods PGA 2010, Virtua Tennis 2009, Wario Ware Smooth Moves, Wii Sports Resort .
The following games don’t read my save file(s), but they allow to save a savefile:
-Alone in the dark, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles & The DarkSide Chronicles, Silent Hill.
The following games don’t boot for me (launching from the SysMenu):
- Zelda TP, Wii Sports

#64 Updated by marcel.werner3 over 9 years ago

this might be interesting for you:
some in the forums (http://forums.dolphin-emu.com/thread-11407.html) said they got Red Steel ingame with a recent revision.
Well, I don't ...maybe because I have a NAND-dump?
See, when I start Red Steel (or Pangya! Golf with Style!, same issue), there's the health warning screen and then it switches to Wii Disc Channel; there's an entry for the game (+ the Mii Channel which I had installed ), and when I start the game from there, I only get a black screen, FPS at 60, nothing happens...

#65 Updated by marcel.werner3 over 9 years ago

update: aye, as I thought, it works without NAND-dump, without it doesn't. Hope this'll help you guys :)

#66 Updated by lpfaint99 over 9 years ago

Do you mind testing with no nand dump, manually extractng and installing the ios wad from red steel's update partition and testing. Unfortunately I do not own the game.
If you don't know which ios to install, try enabling panic handlers to see the eslaunch error

#67 Updated by marcel.werner3 over 9 years ago

(BTW: Of course my last text was supposed to say "WITH it doesn't" ;) )
Ok, I did what you asked me for...now what exactly do you want me to tell you? ^
Without NAND-dump the game starts (as well as Pangya), but with panic handlers I had 4 warnings...after installing the IOS from the update partition (there was only IOS9-64-v516) I only got two warnings. I could send you my Dolphin log if that helps...? (doesn't look interesting, though)

#68 Updated by lpfaint99 over 9 years ago

Just to be make sure I understand, it boots with no nand dump, even after installing the ios9 files?
It probably won't have much info, but can you upload log and link to it please

#69 Updated by marcel.werner3 over 9 years ago

"Just to be make sure I understand, it boots with no nand dump, even after installing the ios9 files?" - exactly.

#75 Updated by Sonicadvance1 about 9 years ago

Your issue is a es_launch issue, which deals with this issue because it's a general Wii menu problem.

#77 Updated by gabrielmorano about 9 years ago

but i can overpass the es_launch issue (i think so) i mean the issue is there, but if you just ignore it you can get into game
The problem is the game gets stuck (i also checked it on LLE and it does not work either)

just in case :p

#84 Updated by marcel.werner3 almost 9 years ago

Still no idea how the wii menu handles Metroid Trilogy, huh?
Btw, it might be the same issue with "The House of the Dead: 2 & 3 Return": 3 starts normally, but when 2 is selected, Dolphin freezes.

#85 Updated by jtrxbox almost 9 years ago

The basic file structure of the NAND that comes with dolphin (Stripped down PAL NAND??, Dolphin based on PAL Wii??) has issues...so when you try to install any version of the system menu (Especially NTSC-U) you get a "partial brick" and cant access those features.

http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Brick#Semi.2FPartial_Brick

You could probably get away with supplying a stripped down version of a pal and NTSC-U/J NAND that acts like a real Wii that has been turned on for the first time and sets those files up by its self.

It would also help matters a lot if in the Wii settings there was something like "any region changer" so that we can change our region when we tack our own NAND onto dolphin.

But I digress...

#90 Updated by skidau over 8 years ago

I have added preliminary support for the Wii multi-boot games in r17dbcd1ae2794156673951dfbad68c08c7c86803 by using HLE to hijack the OSBootDol function.

Metroid Prime Trilogy is working. Wii Sports+Wii Sports Resort is not working. Any games which can be played using the dol replacement trick should work.

Suspect that the DOL's are meant to receive an argument list which has not been catered for in this code. This probably also means that the Metroid Prime Trilogy games are locked in Veteran difficulty for the time-being.

The gray-screen after controller warning issue still persists in Mortal Kombat Armageddon (as of Dolphin 3.5-1348), as described at http://code.google.com/p/dolphin-emu/issues/detail?id=3705

It seems it was too hasty to randomly merge "es_launch" issues into this issue 661 then mark as fixed. Nothing has changed, see other issue linked for more details.

#103 Updated by skidau almost 7 years ago

Brande, you need either a NAND dump installed in User/Wii or install a wad/ticket as described in:
