This looks pretty cool. What are you using to access the stats? Is it part of the message board log files? --Mjbauer95 19:46, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, it reads from the log at /title/00000001/00000002/data/cdb.vff My findings on this file (not that there is that much) will be listed in the source when released but it's all going so painfully slow, too much playing games real life stuff at the moment. Chris 17:56, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Just popping in to tell you what a great idea this app is! I hope your bugs get sorted out. -- MetaFight 01:02, 3 April 2009 (UTC)



when i look at the amount of time i have been to the hbc, it shows more than 27000 hours, is this a bug in the code, or is it just my wii?

My Wii also shows a huge number of total time. Like 30000 days. And some titles appear doubled, like Twilight Princess. And the titles are cut on the beginning. Each copy has a different cut on the name. Maybe that's because there are copies...? -Kyuubi840 14:21, 02 April 2009 (UTC)

Some of the Times are buggy, lock at my screenshots --lord fiSh 15:11, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Bugger, that's what I get for skipping beta testing. Doesn't anyone get any sensible totals? Thanks for the screenshots lord fiSh but I can't work out what's causing this, needless to say it all works fine on my Wii. Unless anyone with a strong stomach is prepared to go through the source and find the bugs, I'm going to need some people who are prepared to send me their messageboard files. These are quite easy to extract using Fs browser but they are 20MB in size so they would need uploading somewhere. Contact me on my website if you can help. Chris 21:46, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
hmm, black screen after starting Fs Browser. My Wii Version is at Systemmenu 4.0, no cios or anything else --lord fiSh 23:29, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Looks like the latest FTPii will also work. You need to extract isfs/title/00000001/00000002/data/cdb.vff Chris 08:56, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
will try this later --lord fiSh 13:15, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
same problem here on a "clean" System 4.0, PAL - can't sent you the files because fs_brwoser is not starting at all. And with the latest FTPii I only got 2 files with 1.5k in that isfs/title/00000001/00000002/ directory (data & content). Maybe you should give us a debug version which dumps the data to the sd card. --T--o--m 07:52, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Update: bug gone :( Started my Wii and got the white "press a to continue" screen. All messages on the board missing. But now your tool is working. --T--o--m 15:28, 6 April 2009 (UTC) lol, do i win some sort of prize?

Wow! You like going on HBC!!!! Is this some kind of late April's fool? :D RedChaos 11:21, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
no, i just left it on overnight more times than i can count :P yossi 20:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm noticing a pattern here, probably a misleading pattern, but all the people who have attempted to help by sending me their message board files, either through this page or by contacting me directly, have all failed because they are on System Menu 4.0 and FTPii and Fs browser don't work for them. Which means either the bug does not exist on lower versions or it does and this is all just a coincidence. Sadly the only person who has confirmed it is working (apart from T--o--m above who seems to have somehow reformatted his messageboard) is myself. I'm on 3.3v1. So can anyone on 3.x say below whether they do or don't get nonsense stats from this program? Thanks. Chris 16:33, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm on 3.2 (EU PAL) and get nonsense stats. Downloaded the file via FTPii but haven't found any strange data yet. Except in the first entries (late 2007) I found "LOG" somewhere around 0x1400, and in the last entries it's "TXT" instead of "LOG" --Gonzo 21:40, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Well bang goes that theory; thanks for the info Gonzo. I can see both those types of data in my messageboard. I haven't looked into what they are for as they always comes after the records that Playstats reads and shouldn't be relevant. Chris 16:57, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

My 3.4e displays ludicrous results plus the names of some of the channels has missing characters. I don't have access to a computer at the moment but hopefully in the next week I can attempt to obtain the file. malexous 30 May 2009 (UTC)


I'm still getting jumbled statistics with version 1.0.1 of Playstats. Kilroy 05:13, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Same. Also: This talk page is sure messy. --ExtremsAlt 05:21, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Damn, obviously more bugs than I thought. The problem is no-one has been able to send me a dump of their messageboard file, so I have made lots of assumptions about the format based on my own dump. Until anyone with bugs can send me this, the problems will stay. Chris 09:00, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

When i load the app through HBC it hangs on the loading screen at 57%. I'm on 3.2 and have full access to ftpii. Let me know what you need and how I should get it to you. thx! --bengalih —Preceding undated comment added 05:00, 18 May 2009 (UTC).

This would be great if you can get me a copy of your messageboard log. As discussed above, the file is isfs/title/00000001/00000002/data/cdb.vff. The file is 20MB large and although it will probably compress quite well, I would prefer it if you could upload it somewhere and send me the link to chris(swirly thing) If this a problem though, please go ahead and attempt to email the file instead. Chris 16:18, 18 May 2009 (UTC)


just reporting back, stats are still not acurate in this version, i have a total playing time of 16225 days, pal wii on 3.2e. maby /title/00000001/00000002/data/cdb.vff is corrupted somehow. i have bootmii as boot2 and a decent backup so i can try resetting the file (but don't know how) to see if that helps.

update: formatted my wii guide by nintendo, did an update to 4.0e and ran it again, now it shows proprer times (12 mins and 9 seconds) Bitflusher

Deleting logs

Hello. Is it possible to add a fonction to clear/reset the data to clear the logs/stats ?? Can it save some memory blocks ? Thank you. OPIK 09:02 18 may 2009 (UTC)

It won't save any blocks. The messageboard is fixed at 20MB, no matter how much stuff is on it; the rest is just padded with zeros. Deleting items from the messageboard only makes more room for other messageboard items. Some people want the logs deleted for other reasons but my app is buggy enough without it attempting to do things that are quite likely to brick the Wii if it goes wrong.
