    I suspect this is an issue with Dolphin Emulator but I want to mention a potential issue with file patch codes here. Full explanation: Preservation of SD Cards (Offline/Online)

    I finally got around to looking into this and there does seem to be an issue with writing to the SD card with mods. I'm not sure if this is the mod's, Dolphin's, or WinImage's issue though.

    With Brawl, the File Patch Code (FPC, tested on Dolphin 5.0-9475 with FPC versions 3.5.1 and 3.5.1b) seems to write to the SD card when certain files are involved. I isolated one of those files (StrapEn.pac) and put it in the attached SD.raw files. StrapEn.pac contains a custom Wiimote strap screen. The only code included in the /codes folder is FPC 3.5.1b. If I remember correctly, Mario Kart Wii uses a very similar code for mods.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Extract sd.raw. Place one copy in the appropriate location for Dolphin and another copy elsewhere for comparison.
    2. Enable the SD card in Dolphin if not enabled.
    3. Set Brawl as your default ISO.
    4. Launch Gecko OS or Minima Launcher and proceed to play Brawl until you see the custom strap screen.
    5. Exit emulation.
    6. Compare the copy of sd.raw to the one in the appropriate location and observe a difference between the two files. The timestamps are also different.

    Oddly, when I try to extract and compare both the original and "modified" StrapEn.pac files, they are identical. I don't know if this is WinImage being weird. Regardless, something isn't right here. Let me know if you want me to make this a separate issue.

    Last time I checked, Mario Kart Wii doesn't use Gecko at all, for mods you use Riivolution.

    Fancy The Brawl Player here, making mods and playing mods.

    Is there a way to use BX Extended with a custom CSS background? I don't like the plain look of vBrawl's CSS background.
