WiiScrubber NG released

Console tribe news - WiiScrubber NG released

Il nostro mitico SukkoPera ha realizzato un porting del famoso WiiScrubber per gli utenti di GNU/Linux e MAC OSx.

La realizzazione del porting è stata possibile grazie all’autore di WiiScrubber, Dack, che ha rilasciato i sorgenti permettendo la conversione dell’ottima utility.

Di seguito la nota di rilascio di SukkoPera ed il download dell’applicazione.

This program is a quick’n’dirty port of the famous “WiiScrubber” Windows application to UNIX. Contrary to the Windows version, this one is command-line only, and only has less features, but it will improve, eventually reaching the same number of features of the Windows version.

The exact purpose of this program is, quoting the original one, to find out where in the disc image the data is and change the rest of the data to 0xFF. This allows compression programs to then compress the image and get a size much smaller than without using the program.

This program has not been tested thoroughly, so I cannot guarantee proper functionality. I’ve tried on quite a few files, checking the files that are then extracted and all seems correct. But no 100% guarantees can be made that the cleaned ISO will work. There is always the potential that Nintendo will start checking for these sort of changes in a firmware update. Just be aware.

The WiiScrubber version this program is based on is 1.31 FINAL FINAL, hence the “unusual” version this program has. The supported operating systems, at the moment, are GNU/Linux and MacOS X.

This port has been possible as Dack, the original author of WiiScrubber, has released the sources to his program.

A nome di tutto il forum Wii Tribe, un grazie speciale all’autore 😉

    Erm, mi sono accorto ieri che in certi casi su MacOS X non compila. Rilascierò una versione corretta quanto prima, magari anche con un installer diretto per MacOS X.
