patchimage 7.5.0 8

file-roller Patchimage is a riivolution patchscript for GNU/Linux.

Based on DMMs and Wiimms excellent work, I’ve created a flexible patchscript for GNU/Linux. Patchimage is a script that allows to patch riivoluton, ips or xdelta patches into wbfs or iso images of legal game dumps, ROMs or dumped cpk files.

features include:

  • downloading riivolution files or patches
  • downloading soundtracks (if available)
  • downloading custom banners for Wii games (if available)
  • downloading covers for Wii games (if available)
  • automatic storing of patched games into desired destination (see README.RC)
  • automatic patching of Wii games, 3DS games, Wii U games
  • replacing characters, fonts and items in Mario Kart Wii
  • replacing characters in New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  • replacing first players Kirby in Kirby’s Adventure Wii
  • patch Nintendo WFC compatible games to use WiimmFi server

NOTE: don’t fiddle around with sub-folders in riivolution-files, the script uses files as „unzip“ creates them. No need to modify anything.

You need the original games to do this legally, if you don’t own the original, you can’t blame me. patchimage is 100% legal, as it does not contain any propritary contents, nor is able to grab them.

patchimage supports the following base games:

  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  • Kirby’s Adventure Wii
  • Mario Kart Wii
  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
  • Pokemon X
  • Pokemon Y
  • Pokemon Omega Ruby
  • Pokemon Alpha Sapphire
  • Bravely Second

More information:

  • supported game modifcations, search paths and expecte file names
  • supported commandline flags
  • configuration file example
    • see README.RC
  • status code while processing
  • exit codes (for debugging)

Example usages:

	Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii
	$ patchimage --game=NewerSMBW --iso=/home/test/SMNP01.iso --download

	Zelda: Parallel Worlds
	$ patchimage --game=ParallelWorlds --rom=/home/test/ALTTP.smc --download

	Toyko Mirage Sessions #FE Restoration
	$ patchimage --game=TMSFE --xdelta=/home/test/xdelta/ \

	Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii and Cannon Super Mario Bros. in one go:
	$ patchimage --game="NewerSMB Cannon" --iso=/home/test/SMNP01.iso --download

German users can find detailed information in the Wiiki.

8 Gedanken zu “patchimage 7.5.0

  • Luigi

    Many thanks for this marvelous tool! I wish I would have found it earlier.

    I got a couple of questions:
    a) Does it support Newer Super Mario Bros Wii v1.20? It got updated last year to v1.20.
    b) What criteria qualify NSMBW hacks to be added to patchimage? There are more hacks out there, for example New Super Mario World U is a very good remake of the SNES classic
    c) Do you know by any chance if there are more hacks out there with custom world maps – or can this be seen from patchimage somehow?

    • EHX

      From how I read it, besides downloading the directly supported hacks from online, you can also patch any Riivolution hack you have on your PC already. For the download mechanics, I’d assume you can also provide any URL, as long as there’s a valid Riivolution patch at that link. For example, you could use the Dropbox direct download URL to YoshiVert99’s Legend of Yoshi. That’s only an assumption though, you’ll have to take a closer look at the docs to know for sure.
      As of hacks with custom world maps, I’m about to start working on one with a friend. That hack will also be avaliable as a pre-built ISO though. Maybe I’l actually use this tool to build it, it seems to be capable of much more complex patching work than WiiScrubber.

      a) it does
      b) basically a working hack, but after went down, the biggest central site went down
      c) where are a couple, but patchimage does not let you filter for those
