ShowMiiWads 0.3 - 'Wad File Manager'

Leathl released his new PC based tool for the Nintendo Wii. ShowMiiWads is a 'WAD File Manager' for Windows.
The .NET-Framework 2.0 is required to run this application!
The (Common-)Key.bin is required for most Wad Editing features.
Please report your bugs, suggestions and everything else to: leathl [at] gmail [dot] com
You can simply translate the application by editing the example.slang, if you
want to have your translation included into the program, mail me.

!Important Note!

I decided to release this version and head over to the next one.
Some of the new features are untested! Use them on your own risk and be sure
to have BootMii/boot2 with a NAND Backup!
I'm currently working on my own wad class that will be used in the next version
instead of external apps. I hope to get rid of problems that prevent some
features to work for some people (at least everything worked on my 3 pc's...)


Version 0.3
  • From-to sizes / blocks for big Wads (it was minimum size before)
  • System Titles will be shown (IOS / System Menu)
  • New columns for Type (Channel / System), Channel Title and Version
  • Extract Wads to NAND Backup (Only important files, for use with TriiForce / NAND Emulation)
  • Extract Wads to Folder (All files)
  • Added some shortcuts
  • External language files can be loaded (see example.slang)
  • Fixed a bug with the filecount label (raised with every refresh)
  • Batch changing to Region Free (all Wads in a folder)
  • Option to show either foldername or full path in groupheader
  • Export list to file (txt and csv, same file with different extension)
  • Added 'Recently Opened' folders menu
  • Changing of Channel Title (Displayed when holding cursor over a channel on wii) -> You can also see the title for other languages by clicking 'Change Channel Title'. Only the english title is displayed in the column.

  • .NET Framework 3.5 needed for full funcionality


Editing WAD files can result in a brick of your Wii.
Only use these features if you have a bricksafe Wii, meaning either Preloader or
BootMii/boot2 is installed, and if you know what you're doing.
Also, your Wad files could be destroyed, so be sure to have a backup.
