PostSubject: Riivolution FAQ   Sat Jul 17, 2010 9:57 am

Some people have asked my questions about Riivolution. Here are some common ones.

Q. What are the folders/ files I should have in my SD card after installing all the files?

A. ~You should have an "apps" folder with a "riivolution" folder inside that and boot.dol, banner.1, banner.2, icon, and meta.
~You should have a "mkwii" folder with many different folder including all the courses in it plus a "My Stuff" folder, "textpatch" folder, "nomusic" folder and "menupatch" folder.
~You should have a "private" folder with the folders (as I go, it is the folders inside folders): Wii -> title -> aktn and the file "Content.bin" in it. ONLY FOR BANNERBOMB. You don't need it in 4.3.
~You should have a "Riivolution" folder with the folder config and the file: mkwiiriivo.xml. In config, you should have RMCP.xml.
~In the root of your SD card you should have banner.0, banner.1, and boot.dol (and readme or whatsnew (optional).


Q. How to I play new courses that I downloaded with Riivolution?

A. Put the courses in the "My Stuff" folder in the "mkwii" and rename it the ORIGINAL SZS NAME OF THE COURSE YOU WANT TO REPLACE. There should be a "readme" in there to explain it to you. Then you play that course with Riivolution and done. In here you can also put music hacks, text hacks, texture hack, and music hacks.

Q. Why isn't the "My Stuff" folder not working?

A. This happened to me too. (1) make sure you are naming it the proper course_name.szs if you have the folder options set as "Show Extensions". If not, just name it course_name (2) delete all the Riivolution folders and files in your SD card and re-download them. This worked for me.

Q. Does Riivolution for Wii Menu 4.3?

A. Yes, but you need Super Smash Bros. Brawl (only works with NTSC-U version) or Lego Indiana Jones (works with all NTSC-U, NTSC-J, PAL versions).

Here are the instruction:

ATTENTION PEOPLE and noobs I HAVE FOUND A WAY FOR RIIVOLUTION TO WORK ON WII SYSTEM 4.3! You need SSBB to do it.

STEP 1. Download Riivolution v1.03 from wiibrew.org.
STEP 2. EXTRACT THE FILES TO YOUR SD CARD.
STEP 3. DOWNLOAD THE BOOT.ELF FROM THIS SITE: http://www.cameraslens.com/forum/index.php?topic=9392.0 (Search the first post for it) AND EXTRACT IT TO THE ROOT OF YOUR SD CARD.
STEP 4. DOWNLOAD SMASH STACK FROM WIIBREW.ORG
STEP 5. RUN SMASH STACK.
STEP 6. ENJOY.

Questions? Ask Please. I didn't figure it out. For a more detailed description read the thread of the link I gave you to download boot.elf.

Q. Is it possible to hack using Riivolution?

A. Yes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INj52hDqoDw

Q. Is Riivolution free and do you need Homebrew Channel to use it?

A. Riivolution is completely free and you do NOT need Homebrew Channel to run it. But you can use Homebrew if you wish.

Q. Can I use Riivolution for other games too?

A. Yes, but only some. You will need to download the game templates to use Riivolution with those games.

Q. Some courses in my "My Stuff" don't work for multiplayer!

A. Add _d after the original .szs name. Ex: Luigi Circuit Multiplayer = Beginner_Course_d.szs.

Q. How do I edit stuff with Mario Kart Wii?

A. https://www.youtube.com/user/midiman100 <----- This guy has a lot of editing tutorials. Check it out. And also this site, of course.

Any more questions? Ask.

Maybe I should post an FAQ which leads to XML editing tutorials for music hacks, custom tracks, texture hacks and anything else that needs to be addressed

No, but helpful when you have two CTs that replaces the same course. You can also disable and enable courses that aren't in CTGP.

Say Johnny, What is the name of the thp for the Demo at the beginning of MKWii.

I don't have an ISO but I can place the thp file I just made into the My Stuff folder for now.

title_SD is 4:3 for the replacement of the Independent Demo

title is 16:9 with the same properties.

I'm not sure about the title_50 or title_SD_50 though.

If it's an NTSC-U, then I guess the _50 is irrelevant to other regions.

I have it on my wii and I'd say its a brilliant "dvd" player. My brother installed it months ago with no problem, why not visit the forum where the person who made it is there?

Hey guys It worked for me, but when I go a Custom Track, it's still the Original Track. For example I went to SNES Rainbow Road Custom Track, then it goes back to Original. I just got the name right and the track it's still Normal. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Easy mistake to fix. You downloaded the Quick Update instead of the full version. Download the full version here (look in the description): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sSawr1ESLk

It's supposed to be the Play Custom Tracks with only an SD card. by MrBean35000vr.

You should only update, when a new update is available.

If you have Homebrew, then download the one that says: "Or if you are running a Homebrew Channel (any version), download this:"

If you don't have Homebrew, talk to me and I'll show you how to get it.
