I see in a thread from May other people couldn't get this to work either. To my surprise they say to just "pack the meta/song folders as much as possible". I find that odd because packdlc.bat doesn't work after awhile for me, roughly 300MB file-size or 13 songs or so, whichever number comes first.

How would I correct a problem with the ticket? I'm using the system files in the OP.

 

Dolphin 5.0.

 

The Loading/Finding DLC loop does end after about an hour... with an emulator crash, because apparently it's starting to do a memory leak or something. I'm not really sure. Next time it boots up, same deal.

It might have to do with the way the app files are built.

You'll need to be more specific with the Dolphin version. After the 5.0, there's a number that says what the build is.

All it says is 5.0. I tried an older version (4.0.2) and it has the same problems.

 

What do you mean about the app files, by the way? And how could I fix that?

Hi there, really good tutorial here man, but i have a problem with Dolphin Emulator and DLC

When i put the required Wii files on the Dolphin Emulator/Wii Folder, it overwrites some files from my real NAND, and so then, it makes to occur a really weird thing when i want to play online with other people using emulator, in RB3 or Guitar Hero Warriors of rock (GH6), it happens like we're the same person, and the game or freezes, emulator crashes or things like that

Even, we have the same progress, same save, same custom characters and going on

Is there a way to fix this? i know isn't related to ticket, title or sys folder, so it should be discarding, shared2 folder, a file there is making that happening and idk why :(

 

TIA

EDIT:well for now i fixed creating 2 separate nands, one for RB3 only, the other for GH6 and other games

EDIT2: now i tried but without the DLC files from here and it worked too, why, i have no idea, but welp, thanks xD

I had the same problem when i installed all the DLC in one go (1700 songs or something near that), it crashed when i used Ishiiruka Dolphin, went to a dev version and it didn't crash (with dev i mean a build which are released periodically, not the stable ones)

I just tried that version, it doesn't crash but when it loads the song list it deletes 0000000F.app and then proceeds to not load almost all songs before 0000000F.app for some odd reason.

really? in my case not problems so far, first i installed the songs and "compiled" in that dolphin, then went to Ishiiruka Dolphin 988 and everything works, just yesterday i installed 200 songs more and no problems so far, i have 2010 songs if i'm not wrong

Ishiiruka is just as dysfunctional and does the same things that the developer versions of Dolphin does for me. Just tried it.

Didn't say you were lying, it just doesn't work for me. No idea why.

and you have you tried, not installing all at the same time, but 1 by 1? it is really tedious but it may work with any dolphin version

you will have to re-do a NAND tho, or load a new again like i did if you have a real NAND

then just install 1 dlc, open, save the songs, close and keep doing like that

I remember for me it crashed between 500-650 songs

By saving the songs do you mean saving the song cache? I've never got a dolphin version where it actually saved it; it always reload it on boot like a ps3.

is the thing when is says "loading custom songs" or something like that when you install a song/dlc, it just happens 1 time and then everything is loaded after, i guess yeah it is the song cache?

Yes, the red bar that loads songs is the cache creation.

 

That's interesting; though I won't use newer versions anyways because of the filesize limit.

but i think it only happens 1 time, so in theory you can load the DLC/songs with an older Dolphin version, then use a newer version to play (like i did), with Ishiiruka RB3 actually looks pretty good, so i use it, but i had to use the Dolphin Dev to load all the cache

I don't mind. I prefer dolphin to load the cache every time it loads than having to respect 40mb for the song folder and 500kb or some ridiculous small number for the meta folder. Packing alot of songs in a single pack is more important than that, in other words.

I've tried adding one-by-one for 00000009 onward and it still doesn't work. My Dolphin just stops working (either of them but in different ways) when 0000000F is approached.

 

Doesn't help that my packdlc.bat is apparently bugged compared to how it is for other people too---it can't process many songs, only about ~10 or so assuming they're not too big, or it crashes.

well i have to sorry, since i discovered something now

 

All the songs i have, are from DLC's only, so in the tutorial of dolphin, i already lost a complete dlc just installing a custom song, but that is not the worst problem

 

My game does not crashes when making the cache or loading, but, it does not detect any "custom" song, for example scans 2080 songs, which 3 of them are dlc, then when i search i have base songs + 2077, i can't find the DLC songs

 

BUT, doing a method change, using the beatles DLC (72394a45) instead of the Gen 1 DLC, it can detect 1 song of the 3 songs, but when i try to play it, it says "Song X Content cannot be restored on Wii internal memory", even when the _meta folder is well structured, and i already copy-pasted the WII-DLC-Dolphin Files into my NAND

 

To be noted that every DLC and every DLC song works without problems with my real NAND without the Dolphin-DLC Folder, just tried to move for the customs, but they do no not appear

 

So welp, we're in the same situation now xD
