DVD Drive Loads files from SDHC cards in the Front SD slot USB mass storage device


Riivolution is an on-the-fly game patcher for use with retail discs. It allows users to place content on their SD or USB devices, which will be read by the game during regular play.

It can be used for custom textures, music, levels, memory patches, game translations, and more!

Install

To install Riivolution, extract the apps folder from the download onto an SD card and run Riivolution from the Homebrew Channel. Bannerbomb can also be used.

Once Riivolution is installed, you will need some patches to start playing with! Check out the Patch Templates to start, or read the FAQ.

FAQ

Does Riivolution work with my "backups" or USB loaders?

No. And that's not a bug.

Does Riivolution work with my PAL/NTSC/JAP Wii/game?

Yes.

What IOS does it need installed?

Riivolution requires an updated IOS37; if you're on System Menu 4.2 you should be good. If it's not installed or the proper version, it will be installed the first time Riivolution is run.

Alternatively, you can also use NUSD or DOP-IOS to install it - with all patches disabled.

Does Riivolution work with Game X?

I probably haven't played it, but yes, it should; try it. If it doesn't work, report it - some games known to reload IOS will require specific patches to work.

Games that have specifically been tested include Fatal Frame 4, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Rock Band, among others.

What does the "Install" button do?

It will install a Riivolution channel onto your System Menu for easy access. This can always be uninstalled.

Can I use Ocarina / Gecko codes with it?

Normally, Riivolution just supports direct memory patches. However, Riivolution supports a patching method that can be used with the Gecko OS code handler.

Read more about that here.

Can I add new files to a disc with Riivolution?

Not yet.

Uhh, how do I use this?

As a user, you need to either download patch packages made by someone else or make your own.

A basic template and packages for common games can be found at the Patch Templates section. For a more detailed explanation about Riivolution's patch XML files, check out the instructions.

Can I see it in action?

Sure. Look that-a-way ->
