The forwarder just boots the .dol. It has nothing to do with how scummVM actually runs after that. Shocked

Yeah, it's just a forwarder. Like a shortcut.

sounds more like that "forwarder" doesnt pass the cwd to the loaded app, and then scummvm wont find the .ini file nor any runtimes files (themes, vkeybd etc).

I converted today's SVN to dol, and loaded it up with the forwarded and it also doesn't load the ini file. Classic screen, no games, and doesn't remember settings between sessions. Is it trying to pull the ini file from the forwarder directory or somewhere else inappropriate perhaps?

It's a mystery. It's been tested by (literally) hundreds of people now with no issues.

Having the same problem here. Tried copying the .ini file to multiple locations to see if it would pick it up but no such luck.

Has anyone that is also experiencing this found a solution as yet?

Are you using the official release of scummVM or a bot build? That's the only thing I can think it might be. Shocked

For me this only happens with the new nightly builds that have boot.elf instead of boot.dol.
Since the forwarder doesn't load elf files I have to convert to dol with the elf2dol tool.
The Homebrew Channel loads the new dol fine, but the forwarder doesn't.

Is this something new that has been introduced to the new builds? Because the forwarder seems to work fine with the official 0.13.1

No, thats a feature of libfat (the library used on the Wii build for SD/USB access). I don't know this forwarder, but I still think it does not pass the working directory to ScummVM. If thats indeed the case, this port will fall back to a default, which is /apps/scummvm on first FAT device. Then, you cannot rename the folder.

The forwarder should attempt to load (in this order):
sd:\apps\scummvm\boot.dol
sd:\scummvm\boot.dol
usb:\apps\scummvm\boot.dol
usb:\scummvm\boot.dol

I am truly glad it appreciated. scummVM is my favourite applicaton for the Wii so as soon as I figured out how to make Channels it had to be shown the love it deserves! Very Happy

The loader obviously doesn't start the boot.elf. I used ELF to DOL Converter to make it a DOL, but the neither HBC nor the loader are able to run it.

Is there a conversion tool that is verified to work with ScummVM?
