Thanks for this great resource and hard work :)

Would this process also work for wii? Given that not only is it a bandwidth saver but some variants are hard to find, how cool would that be...

Also is there is a list of priority needed patches?

@rsolv825

Thanks for the compliments. :)
Yes, it works with Wii iso, because xdelta3 make a difference file with two files, and many bandwidth saver of course.
But for the moment, i'm very busy with Nintendo GameCube patches, and real life. I would like to finish GameCube first, and after start with Wii.

If you want to contribuate, for a first time, look at the mega account, and look what it is missing.
Second time, i will post a list of games already patched and don't need patching.

It will be more faster if many contributors can make patches, some requirement:
Windows 64bits (xdelta3 work better, and more faster), about 16Gb Ram, and some Hd space.
Creation of patches is fast, so, let's do it !!

Change the format of datafile:
    -reduce the filenames (remove (Test) arguments, (Xd3) argument, reduce xdelta3 extension to xd3)
    -no more zip/archive.
    -Look at the result, you will have a nice surprise . 8)

Change the format of datafile, again, for the future:
    -zip/archive for each game and inside each game --> all regions patches, thanks to Cherokee1228 for this idea.
(thanks to darksabre78 for his marvellous tools to making/merging datafiles --> Sabretools)
(thanks to Kludge for his motivation)
(for about 5k of patches, it's better to have a list of games, that all patches, too confusing)

Re: Nintendo - GameCube Patch (1095) (2016-05-19)

2016-05-19 - 1095 entries - 215 games - 102 Gb
Added 201 patches !
1>
New parameters for creating a patches with xdelta3:
   -New= xdelta3.exe -9 -S djw -B 731416576 -P 67108864 -I 0 -W 16777216 -e -vfs, ADVANTAGE= Take 5Gb Ram for make patches, better compression (little gain)
   -Old=  xdelta3.exe -9 -S djw -B 1462833152 -P 67108864 -I 0 -W 8388608 -e -vfs, DISADVANTAGE= Take 10Gb Ram, less compression (little difference)
So with 16Gb Ram, i can run two xdelta files session on two different harddisk (so more patches making). With 128 Gb, hummmm, i don't want to count it:)...
2>
Cutting filenames: arguments .dec dissapeared
               -i put .iso arguments in filename if source is in iso format, if dec, no need arguments because 99,9% of patches are in .dec format.
3>
 I'm using now DATFromDir founded in SabreTools (thanks to darksabre76) to create the datafile.
4>
In datafile, machine tag's are changed to game tag's, thanks to SylviasMother.
5>

but god dam you guys are releasing patches so quick i cant keep up with the updates  :P

i last updated when it was at 584

How many patches will there be for the Gamecube set ? i know you cant guess on the size of it now but just wondering how much is left to be done :) sorry dont mean to sound rude im just really excited  :)


edit.. i do have most of the redump gamecube games from the old WOD dat file i can check if i can help out to make any patches tho im a total noob in these things
and ive got all usa Wii retail realeses but in wfbs format not iso :( if that can be used for the wii patches i could help out whith those if i can learn how :)

@gryla

For number of GameCube patches, i don't know exactly the right number, but there are about 215 games patched (with all regions, Eur,Fra,Ger,Ital.....) and missing about the same number, i think.
Look at the list in attachement to have an idea for the missing games.

The set for the moment is taking 100 Gb, but to reconstruct all isos, no need to download all patches, see the list.  ;D

For Wii, only iso matching with Redump set, you can maybe try to unwfbs them ?


No need to learn a lot for making patches, just need some isos, a pc (os 64bits better) with 16 Gb Ram or 8 Gb (with last parameters, it's working), xdelta3 exe, and a cup of tea.
Look at my post, everything is explainning, don't hesitate to mp me for assistance.

For Wii, for the moment, need to finish first Nintendo GameCube.

Good luck.

Amiga12.
