    A RiiFS server is a Riivolution server that can host hacks on your computer and transfer them to your wii over the internet/network.
    It's useful for Riivo users who want to test their hacks without touching their SD card.

    What you need:
    - A Wii connected to the internet
    - The basic Riivolution stuff + your hacks
    - A SD card (any size) [Method 2 only]
    - This pack


    There're two ways to set this up:

    Method 1 (WLAN) lets you host hacks over the network, and it's easier (and faster) to set up the server, but you can only host hacks on that network (SD/USB is not required).

    Step 1:
    Extract the RiiFS Server.zip from the download. You should get these files:

    RiiFS\riifs.exe
    riivolution\RiiFS.xml (You don't need this one!)

    Step 2:
    After that, take all your folders that contain hacks (including the "riivolution" folder) on your SD card and put them in the same folder as the server (the server folder acts as the root of a SD card).

    On your computer, your server folder should look like this:
    \RiiFS\riifs.exe
    \RiiFS\riivolution\*your brawl xml*
    \RiiFS\*the folders containing your hacks*

    You can place the server folder anywhere on your computer.

    Last step:
    1. Start riifs.exe
    2. Boot up Riivolution on your Wii.
    3. If you've done it correctly, your Wii should connect to the server and will load the files as if it was loading from the SD card.


    Method 2 (WiFi) lets you host hacks over the internet, which is useful if your Wii isn't connected to the same network as your computer, or if you want to host hacks on multiple Wiis. (SD/USB is required).

    Step 1:
    Extract the RiiFS Server.zip from the download. You should get these files:

    RiiFS\riifs.exe
    riivolution\RiiFS.xml

    Step 2:
    You will need to find your IP address:

    1. In Windows, go down in the corner of the screen and press Start, then type in "cmd" and press enter.
    2. Now that you got Command prompt open, type in "ipconfig".
    3. You'll get a bunch of text, look for "IPv4-address".
    4. When you find it, your address will be next to it. Write it down in notepad.

    Next, open up RiiFS.xml and replace the text "PUT IP ADDRESS HERE" with your IP address.

    Step 3:
    After that, you take all your folders that contains hacks (including the "riivolution" folder) on your SD card and put them in the same folder as the server (the server folder acts as the root of a SD card).

    Then you take the riivolution folder that contains RiiFS.xml and put it in your SD card.

    Your SD card should look like this:
    SD:\riivolution\RiiFS.xml

    And on your computer, your server folder should look like this:
    \RiiFS\riifs.exe
    \RiiFS\riivolution\*your brawl xml*
    \RiiFS\*the folders containing your hacks*

    You can place the server folder anywhere on your computer.

    Last step:
    1. Start riifs.exe
    2. Boot up Riivolution on your Wii.
    3. If you've done it correctly, your Wii should connect to the server and will load the files as if it was loading from the SD card.

    Just a heads up... I don't know who's IP that is, but I don't think you'll want to post it on the internet. XD

    I'd recommend maybe making up an example or something along those lines.

    When the game has loaded, the files get "patched into the game", so no, you can't add files while the game is running. But you can replace/edit a file while the game's running, making it great for testing purposes.

    Didn't know it was possible, I tested it and it worked! Changed OP and added a second (simpler, easier and faster) method. Thanks Smiley
