Can you upload your NAND used with Dolphin? It can be cut down a bit if it helps uploads. There could be a problem that isn't apparent from these descriptions.

I would but it is my real Wii NAND and welp i use the MAC and everything of that NAND to play online (even RB3 or other games, like GH:WoR), and that's why probably the DLC works too without using the Dolphin-DLC Folder

 

I will write what i did, first i followed everything like in the tutorial, downloaded 3 songs and welp since it is Dolphin, i started with 001_00000001, and then until 006_00000006 so total 3 songs, all of them there in the folder, ran RB3WiiPackTool.exe, created the .bat, ran the bat and created 00000001.app until 00000006.app, then i moved all these files into a DLC Folder (first on 1st gen DLC using 735a4145 _meta folder (sZAE), then Beatles DLC using 72394a45 for _meta folder (r9JE)), and replaced, deleted MSTORE.VFF from Wii\title\00010000\535a4245\data (here is the save located on NTSC), and then i opened the game

 

 

It scans everything, first i lost all the 1st gen DLC, and no custom songs to be found, then tried with Beatles DLC and just appears 1 song, and it doesn't load with the problem "Song X Content cannot be restored to interal wii Memory"

 

I used this Custom Song for reference http://keepitfishy.c...p?541c765d24bc8(Africa from Toto), and as can you see, it has the _meta folder well structured, and _song is there too

 

Now, i didn't tried with the default Dolphin NAND still

 

EDIT: by the way, even tried with the example song and din't work, but again, using 001_00000001 instead of 052_00000034

I'm using the NAND in the opening post here.

A question, what does title.tmd and (a lot of zeros)26.app? since by default the DLC has both of these files (any, i'm trying with The Beatles DLC, since i do really like Gen 1 DLC), anyways with using them or not, no new song is shown in RB3 (Dolphin) 

 

I'm getting crazy with this, i know this is not your fault StackOverflox0x since i'm doing something wrong, but i want to find what is indeed wrong xD

NOW FINALLY I MADE IT, FINALLY IT WORKS on my Dolphin, everything worked using GEN5DLC instead of others, just replaced the custom .app, 26.app and title.tmd, and finally loads custom songs 

 

The Gen5DLC in Hex is 735a4645, on letter is sZFE

 

Ahh i'm so happy now

 

And all of this works with my real NAND from my Wii, so i didn't had to use the stock Dolphin NAND or the Dolphin-DLC files

So there are people who got customs working on newer dolphin versions.

I read through all the site "Dolphin branch master" to figure out what version changed the handling of the custom dlc.

I discover that was when the devs moddified the detection of DLC by reading the .tmd instead of reading the folder contents.
When the method of detection was by reading the folder contents we were able to pack even a 1.5GB song folder and a meta folder of circa 15mb.
It was so sad the fact I can't use newer versions of dolphin to be able to play a lot of customs.

My hopes are someday someone figure out how to do this in newer versions or create some tool.

Now I'm stuck with the old versions and my hopes are dying. 

 

Sorry for my bad english!(<<sorry, that's my catchphrase!)

Oh i see

This works without problems for 001 to 002 to inf, but i can't pack multiple songs in one .app (it won't show for some reason), but doing all of them separately works

What dolphin version are you using? 4.0.2? i'm using Ishiiruka 988, which is equivalen to some latest Devs of Dolphin 5.0

One of the dev versions after 5.0 broke it for the DLC filesize. If you want to pack big packs gotta go with a not-so-recent version. If you dig in this thread you should be able to find the exact version where the change occured.

 

Also; you can modify the cheat for more than 3k songs on Dolphin without (gamebreaking) problems.

5.0-2561 was the last version you could use before the DLC implementation was changed. You can modify the TMD file to have correct values for filesize and hash, but it's more work and still won't let you go over the 40MB limit.

Welp since i made to install Customs on Latests Dolphin Devs with real Wii NAND, but 1 by 1 and not being able to pack various in 1, i have some questions :B

 

I have successfully installed 10 songs and all of them work, but

 

1. That means i can install 999 songs per DLC? i mean, since it has 3 slots before the first _, anyways i'm sure i won't be installing more than 100 songs lol

 

2. Some custom songs at the end, actually don't end and get bugged, usually with the xbox-> wii conversion, is because the conversion?

 

Thanks, and really thanks StackOverflow0x for everything

Yeah, I know. I'm using 5.0 1777 for an Eternity(no pun intended)!

I have like 600 or more customs. I'm marking it my limit, and now I rarely install a new custom.
Did some of you know how to find the ishiiruka versions for download?
Wanna try that out of curiosity.
I know it have the same limit, but I like to see how my RB3 runs in this one.

 

Thanks!

Here https://forums.dolph...-custom-version

I use the 988 version, and by the way, i made a video showing how it looks here 

By the way idk why the videos has no 60FPS, since the other day it had the option, and i recorded at 60 FPS (as can it can be seen in the corner)

And it can looks better if you have a better PC than mine (FX8320e at 4.1Ghz/RX560 4GB)

EDIT: i will upload a new video since i'm bothered of no 60FPS, and online (yeah you can play online with real NAND wii or using the Dolphin NAND Generator)

EDIT2: nevermind, on online i got a shitty video in the background instead of the real animations, so no sense to record that (same with custom songs)

1. Not exactly.

2. I haven't had this happen in a while. Maybe it has to do with something with the newer versions.

Limits are all determined by the TMD. Custom generations like sZGE and sZHE have more continuous slots in their TMD. Not 999 though. I don't think it can go that high. And I've also had no luck getting the custom generations to work in Dolphin.

Now sorry for this but i will take someone you said in the original post, "If your computer can handle it, you can set up all 5 instruments with the cheats on autoplay and play at 1920x1080 and higher to record. Hiding the crowd with the Concentration Mode cheat can help reach full performance. Setting this up can also be a bit complicated, so ask if you need help."

 

How do i do this? I want to do some recording :B

The way I use the cheat is turning the cheat on then enabling all-instruments mode in-game. Concentration Mode forces a black background when the video venue are playing and all-instruments mode (and various other modes, like playing online) forces them. I think there is also a cheat to force them too.

oh welp is there a way to remove the video venue, and actually show the characters using the instruments? because if not, then i think no sense to record that (who wants to see a video venue in a video tbh)

I think there is cheats for both.

 

Edit:

$Video

Thanks! that works, i love you, with the last cheat ($Force Venue on All Instruments Mode

04227DFC 3be00000) it shows all 5 instruments, with auto play it works and actually shows the venue, finally xD)

EDIT: in online i still see the video venue, so probably that does need another gecko code? i'm using video venues never appear but sill appear
