    Default [Tutorial] Using GameShark codes with Wii64 save state.

    Stuff needed:

    Calculator
    Some GameShark codes of course
    Hex Editor (I prefer Hex Editor Neo)
    7-zip

    Now let's start:

    Extract the game's save state out of it's archive, it should be st0,st1,st2 etc to somewhere on your HDD (preferably the desktop)

    To use get the code you want, it should start with 80 or 81. Now when you've found what you're looking for go to your calculator and add the last six values in it. Here's an example, Mario 64 USA:

    Mario's cap:
    Original GameShark address: 8033B177

    Now remove the 80 from the code and we have 33B177, now on your calculator select HEX and add in this address 33B177.
    Next click the + (plus) symbol and put value 190 and click the = (equals) and you'll get address 33B307. Since the extracted save is 10.01 MB with every game it should work with all games. (well the ones that run anyway).

    After all that just open up the hex editor and go to the address given by the calculator and patch the value(s) with what you want then save it.

    After you're done just put the decompressed hacked save file back into it's st0,st1,st2, etc archive and load it in Wii64.
    Also note that codes that need to be frozen (80/81) will not stay frozen as this is only you writing to the file once.

    However, codes that are ROM data will stay working.

    this type of method of hacking is not new.

    and can be done on any game save file and savestates.

    Yeah I know, just giving some pointers for those who don't know about it. I found the N64 starting RAM address (which starts at 0x190) by using some simple math.

    That won't work on Dolphin, it's only for Wii64 save states dood. BTW you can make codes for virtual console games using Dolphin.
    If you mean like porting GameShark codes to it that would require memory dumps and whatnot.
