I've been using this as an exercise in Wii programming as it's the first app I've done for the wii, and my first C program in a long time, so the source isn't quite as clean as it should be ;) [[User:Pembo|Pembo]] 09:27, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

When you change the video mode configuration will this change be permanent everywhere? eg.

Questions

Why does it look like dos?

it looks like dos, kinda scares me, --Aujakev 16:22, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I based the look and feel on the linux debian installer! You can set it how you like now in v2.0+ :) Pembo 08:32, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Boot Delay

I hope the next version to allow more than 5 seconds for the "boot delay" option (I use 10). --Sca.nab 17:13, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

In v2.1 you can set the boot delay with values from 0 through to 10 seconds Pembo 21:31, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Forcing the Video Mode?

When you change the video mode configuration will this change be permanent everywhere? eg. When playing an NTSC Wii game on a PAL Wii (Set to PAL60 in the system menu) using GeckoOS usually the game will switch the video mode to NTSC when booting - would the BootMii Configuration Editor prevent this from happening and keep the video setting at PAL60 at all times? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Link83 (talkcontribs) 09:35, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Not even close. Bootmii itself has the settings for how to display, be it PAL, NTSC, or Progressive. The video setting here only applies to Bootmii. -Kage Korosu 17:04, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Switching bug with MIKE

I used v2.5 changing bootmii folder with BootMii and ~bootmii one with MIKE, but there is a issue, when bootmii folder with MIKE renamed to ~bootmii, the ppcboot.elf file size of MIKE became smaller and it can't use anymore and that ppcboot.elf seems corrupted. ——DIXES —Preceding undated comment added 17:14, 16 August 2010 (UTC).

I'll check this out though it sounds highly unlikely to be something to do with switching as I tested this to death with multiple bootmii folders with differnt configs, and it simply renames the directory - it doesn't do anything with the executables. I'll give this some testing and let you know if I find anything. Thanks Pembo 22:05, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
