What is QuadForce?
QuadForce is an awesome cMIOS for the Nintendo Wii that allows you to play the 3 most well known Triforce Arcade games from your SD card. Mario Kart Arcade GP, Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, and F-Zero AX.
This thread aims to help anyone with the a Wii, The Homebrew Channel, and a working method for installing WAD files get QuadForce running.
You will need:
-A Wii with the following:
---The Homebrew Channel
---A Method for Installing WADs (Trucha Bug, AHBPROT based WAD Manager, whatever works)
-A 2gb or larger SD card
-Any kind of decent SD card formatter
-A gamecube controller
I will not be providing you with these, as all of the software mods required are obtainable through the PC tool "ModMii of Windows"
You will first need to format your SD card to FAT with 64K Clusters. This is the setup with the highest success rate although this appears to differ from card to card.
There are reports of FAT32 working, as well as reports of 32K Cluster Size working, albeit at a slower SD read speed. You'll need to do a full format too, however I don't recommend the Windows Formatter, but you can give it a try if you feel daring. If you're using SDHC, higher classes are recommended.
Next, you'll Need to get the most recent QuadForce wad. (at the time of this being written, it is 2.0)
*I also recommend keeping a copy of the RVL-MIOS-v10.wad so that you can reinstall regular GCN support any time you want.*
Next, You'll need to get Dios-Mios Booter app to load the games.
Put DM Booter on the SD card and Put the .wads in whatever folder you put wads in on your SD card (Maybe SD:/wad or SD:/wads?)
Now you'll need the triforce games. Extracted they eat up about 1.2gb of space, pretty small considering.
Now this is how the games are structured on the SD card
In each of these directories, there should be a "game.iso" file, and a "sys" folder (except for F-Zero AX, which just has the game.iso)
So your SD card should look something like this (showing just the files I provided to you, you SHOULD have more files than shown, including a wadmanager, like multimodmanager or something...)
Now all that you need to do is use a WAD manager to install the Quadforce wad, launch Dios Mios Booter, choose a game, and you should be playing it. If not, check your SD card, and if all else fails, try another SD card.
Now for the control stuff.
About Wavebirds/Wireless Controllers
If you are having trouble getting your wavebird to work, make sure it is switched on before booting any games with QuadForce, and if that alone doesn't do it, you should hold down a button or two on the controller to make sure QuadForce picks it up.
(a small tip from <snip>: some 3rd party memory cards are detected as USB geckos in slot B, remove devices from slot B if you are having any trouble with freezes)
F-Zero AX Controls:
Note: When starting F-Zero AX it says "Initializing Motor..." it will shortly after ask you to calibrate the controls, circle the analog stick around a few times and press A, then B, then press Start.
L: Drift left
R: Drift right
Digital-Pad: change views
Mario Kart GP 1&2 Controls:
L: Brakes, and Tapping L jumps and activates sliding, during sliding you get a shield.
A: Item button, use items, can also be used as OK button
B: VS Cancel button, can do certain things depending on situation (read on-screen instructions)
