TypeFramework library

Wii.py is a GPL licensed Wii library written in and for Python. It provides editors and classes for many file types and files present on the Wii, especially files in banners. It was created as a replacement for the unreleased and never to be released pywii, written by marcan, but has since expanded in some areas that pywii did not cover and not completed others (such as Wii Optical Disc editing) that pywii has support for.


  • Loading and easy editing of U8 archives
  • Simple, easy classes for TMDs and Tickets, with methods to load from and save to files
  • Simple Title object to hold information about a title
    • Can pack into a WAD
    • Can download from NUS
    • Can unpack into a directory structure
  • Convert images to/from PNG and TPL
  • Convert WAV sound the BNS sound (used in banners)
  • Add IMET and IMD5 headers
  • Load and extract files from Wii Optical Discs
  • Create a fake 'NAND' that you can modify with a Python version of ES and ISFS from libogc
  • Decompress LZ77 compressed files
  • Work with these file types:
    • loc.dat
    • CCF
    • iplsave.bin
    • uid.sys
    • content.map
    • config.dat (network config)
    • setting.txt
    • Savegames

Update History

0.84 - August 19, 2009

  • First 'real' public release.
  • Most classes using the so-called 'new API'


This library was written by Xuzz, SquidMan, megazig, Matt_P, and Omega. It contains the LZ77 code written by marcan, with few modifications. Thanks go out to marcan for providing the idea of writing a Wii library in Python!
