Thanks, I added it, but forgot to sign. Helsionium 18:19, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
Big thanks :-) I wasn't expecting to work on this today, so I have other commitments in the way right now. I'll see if I can get it done by the next 24 hours. Again, BIG thanks :-)--Arikado 19:29, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
Marc has Dop-IOS programmed in such a way that all of the IOS and version data and description are all stored and accessed in a single array. Here is the array from Dop-IOS v8, also used in Dop-IOS MOD v5:
const struct ios ioses[]={
//IOS# OLDVERSION# NEWVERSION#, ???, Description -- Arikado
{4,65280,65280,PROTECTED,"Stub, useless now."},
{9,520,778,NORMAL,"Used by launch titles (Zelda: Twilight Princess) and System Menu 1.0."},
{10,768,768,PROTECTED,"Stub, useless now."},
{11,10,256,STUB_NOW,"Used only by System Menu 2.0 and 2.1."},
{16,512,512,PROTECTED,"Piracy prevention stub, useless."},
{20,12,0,STUB_NOW,"Used only by System Menu 2.2."},
{21,514,782,NORMAL,"Used by old third-party titles (No More Heroes)."},
{30,1040,2816,STUB_NOW,"Used only by System Menu 3.0, 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3."},
{35,1040,3349,NORMAL,"Used by: Super Mario Galaxy."},
{36,1042,3351,NORMAL,"Used by: Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii. Can be ES_Identify patched."},
{37,2070,3869,NORMAL,"Used mostly by music games (Guitar Hero)."},
{38,3610,3867,NORMAL,"Used by some modern titles (Animal Crossing)."},
{50,4889,5120,STUB_NOW,"Used only by System Menu 3.4."},
{51,4633,4864,STUB_NOW,"Used only by Shop Channel 3.4."},
{53,4113,5406,NORMAL,"Used by some modern games and channels."},
{55,4633,5406,NORMAL,"Used by some modern games and channels."},
{56,4890,5405,NORMAL,"Used only by Wii Speak Channel 2.0."},
{57,5404,5661,NORMAL,"Unknown yet."},
{60,6174,6400,STUB_NOW,"Used by System Menu 4.0 and 4.1."},
{61,4890,5405,NORMAL,"Used by Shop Channel 4.x."},
{70,6687,6687,LATEST,"Used by System Menu 4.2."},
{222,65280,65280,PROTECTED,"Piracy prevention stub, useless."},
{223,65280,65280,PROTECTED,"Piracy prevention stub, useless."},
{249,65280,65280,PROTECTED,"Piracy prevention stub, useless."},
{250,65280,65280,PROTECTED,"Piracy prevention stub, useless."},
{254,2,260,PROTECTED,"PatchMii prevention stub, useless."}

Feel free to edit that array yourself in compliance with the data you posted. If not, I'll do it myself as soon as I have time tomorrow (or later today if I'm lucky, I'm heading out the door right now and have a homework megaton awaiting me when I get back)--Arikado 19:51, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

OK, I edited the array. I didn't edit OLDVERSION, because I think it refers to the oldest version, not the second-most recent version, right? Helsionium 07:25, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Right - Great work :-) Eventually, I plan on rewriting a chunk of Dop-IOS MOD so we can choose from more than the oldest and latest versions of IOSs. In the meantime though, I'll just compile with the array you made (thanks - saved me about 20 minutes) and release as v6. Again, thanks :-)--Arikado 15:50, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
You're welcome! BTW, NUS Downloader has the ability to download the most recent version of any title. Do you think you (or Marc) could implement this in Dop-IOS? The old versions won't ever change, and if you incorporate code to detect what the newest versions are, you wouldn't have to update every time Nintendo does... Helsionium 16:15, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
I'll take a look at the NUSD source and see if it's possible. Also, I just updated the page with the new array.--Arikado 16:22, 2 October 2009 (UTC)


How's it going, Arikado?--retrotails 01:01, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Busy -_---Arikado 13:51, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
I can tell. Have you seen my latest hacking feats? Mostly, these videos:
From piano to Banjo-Kazooie ROM:
Tetris: Retrotails Edition: (You'll only be able to tell the differences if you know the original really well)
Sorry for posting on your talk page, but experience has shown that E-mail is NOT the way to go. Damn HTML
