Keeping Busy..

Hello everyone... With a short vacation under my belt, the holiday game releases appearing on store shelves (and my desk), thousands of code request emails to sift through, and the recent release of the PSP Action Replay, I haven't been able to keep up with the blog; I apologize for that.

I will try my hardest to set a few moments aside each week to at least say "hello" and let everyone know what's been happening in the crazy world of code hacking.

Power Saves Guide:

Power Saves Guide

Wii-Power-Saves.jpg

Today I wanted to take some time and write up a quick guide to the PC software that's included with Wii Power Saves product. Hopefully this will answer a few questions many people out there have regarding how to obtain software updates, how to find the latest Power Saves, or why some saves won't work properly with certain games.

 - Jay "FNG"

 

NOTE: The Max Media Manager Pro software for the Wii Power Saves product is only compatible with a Windows XP / Windows Vista based PC; it is not designed for use with a Mac.

First thing's first; let's make sure we have the latest version of the Max Media Manager Pro software installed.

UPDATING TO THE LATEST VERSION:

Updating the Max Media Manager couldn't be easier. As long as your PC is connected to the internet, simply follow these steps.

  1. Locate the "Options" button & left mouse click on it.
    (It's located at the top right side of the software.)
    WMMMP-Options-Button.jpg

  2. When the options menu appears, simply click the "CHECK FOR UPDATES" button.
    WMMMP-Options General.jpg

    NOTE:
    Windows Vista users. Be sure to run the Max Media Manager Pro with "Administrator Privileges" enabled. This will allow the software to communicate with the codejunkies.com servers and obtain software updates, download community and Power Saves, as well as upload your content to share with others.

SETTING UP THE MAX MEDIA MANAGER PRO SOFTWARE:

Before you can begin downloading / uploading community saves, or begin your search for the latest Power Saves, you'll need to be sure the Max Media Manager Pro options are set up properly.

WMMMP-Options Menu.jpg

  1. User Name: Enter the user name that you've registered through http://www.codejunkies.com/ exactly as you entered it during registration. You'll need a user name / password to access the codejunkies.com server.
  2. Password: Enter the password you created the during registration process here. You'll need a user name / password to access the codejunkies.com server.
  3. Power Saves Product License Key: Do NOT lose or distribute this product key. Each product key is unique and is immediately / permanently associated with the user name / password you registered with on http://www.codejunkies.com/.
  4. Save Filter: This option allows you to choose which region you'll be accessing for community & Power Saves. I suggest you choose a specific region to avoid downloading incompatible game save data. (US game saves are compatible with games purchased in the United States. Europe, Japan & Asia game save data will not work with US games.)
  5. Local Saves Folder: This is the location on your PC where you'll be storing all of your personal, community and Power Saves. Be sure the location selected has plenty of storage space. You may change the location by clicking the "..." button to the right.

NOTE: Write down your User Name, Password, and License Key and keep it in a safe place!! You will need this information if you ever need to reinstall the Max Media Manager Pro software. Without this information you will not be able to access the codejunkies.com servers to download / upload Wii game save data.

DOWNLOADING THE LATEST POWER SAVES:

  1. Start by clicking the "SAVES - WEB" button.
    WMMMP-Saves-Web-Button.jpg

  2. Choose either "Power Saves", "Community" or "My Uploads" to access the desired section codejunkies.com database.
    (I've highlighted the "Power Saves" option for this example.)
    WMMMP-PowerSaves.jpg

  3. Click on the letter in which you want to browse.
    (If you're searching for Power Saves for Guitar Hero III, click on "G".)
  4. Locate & click the game title of the save you want to download.

  5. Read the descriptions of each save listed & choose which one you want to download.
  6. Click on the desired game save.
  7. Choose the location you want to save to be downloaded to.
    "To PC" will download the save into your PC database.
    "To SD" will download the save directly to the SD card.
    WMMMP-Download.jpg

  8. Click "DOWNLOAD".

 

WHERE TO FIND DOWNLOADED SAVES:

WMMMP-Saves-PC-button.jpgIf you downloaded the Power Save to the PC, you can access them by clicking on the "SAVES - PC" button from the top row of icons.

All saves, including downloaded Power Saves, community saves, &  saves copied from an SD card, can be accessed by clicking this button.

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • Keep a copy of your user name, password, and license key somewhere safe!
  • Check for Max Media Manager Pro software updates regularly.
  • Game save data is region specific. Saves from Europe, Asia, Japan are not compatible with US games.
  • Saves with the file extension ".wii" must be copied to the SD card using the Max Media Manager Pro software to be recognized properly by the Wii console.
  • Before transferring save data to a Wii console from an SD card, be sure of the following.
    1. The game has been played on the Wii console at least one time.
    2. Existing game save data for the game has been removed / backed up from the Wii console.
  • If save data will not copy to the SD card from the Max Media Manager Pro software, be sure that...
    1. The lock switch on the side of the SD card is OFF before attempting to transfer game save data. (Nothing will copy to the card if the lock is enabled.)
    2. The correct device drive letter is assigned to the SD card.
      (This can be changed in the "General" section of the options menu.)
  • If you're still having problems with the software, check the Customer Service Knowledge Base over at www.datelcustomerservice.com for further assistance.

INFECTED! + Updated Pokémon Save Fix:

INFECTED! + Updated Pokémon Save Fix

blog_AR.jpg

Sorry for the lack of updates this week... I was infected by some pretty nasty malware / backdoor Trojans, so my hard drive needed to be wiped clean and all software had to be reinstalled.

Now, nearly a week later, I'm back up and running at 100% and you can expect me to be working my tail off to get as much as possible posted next week. By the way.... YES, Sonic Riders for Wii is being worked on; I plan on having a Power Save done early next week.

Also, a customer was nice enough to get in touch with us and send in their copy of Pokémon for me to take a look at. The "Mystery Zone Save Fix" I posted last week didn't work for them, so I needed to figure out why.... It looks like they "walked anywhere" and saved in the Wi-Fi area... another "no-no" when using that code.

Today I revised the Pokémon "Mystery Zone Save Fix" code posted in my previous blog entry. Now, if the save menu won't pop up for you, try holding select and tap the X button...That should do the trick.

Here's the revised code I made that fixed Ryan's game save data.

 

Mystery Zone Fix  (HOLD SELECT WHILE SAVING)
NOTE: Press SELECT then X if your save menu will not appear.
94000130 FFFB0000
621C5A08 00000000
B21C5A08 00000000
DC000000 F7FDEA80
18000000 0000019B
D2000000 00000000
94000130 FFFB0000
621C5A08 00000000
B21C5A08 00000000
000020C8 0000036F
000020CC 00000070
000020D4 0000036F
000020D8 00708000
D2000000 00000000

Thanks again for sending your game in Ryan.. We're shipping it back to you today, so you should receive it in a couple of days.

Have a great weekend everyone!
