Witgui 2.0

Download Witgui 2.0 (Mac OS X Lion or newer)

Known issues

Trying to list the connected WBFS partitions causes a kernel panic on Lion (Mountain Lion is safe).

New features

Added support for reading/writing .wbfs, .iso .wdf and .ciso and reading .wia files for both Wii and GameCube games. Added WBFS partition support for reading, adding, extracting, removing and recovering games (requires privileged permissions). Multiple partitions/folders can be opened at the same time in different windows and conversions can be started by dragging a game from window to window. After a drag has been performed, an alert is displayed if some game ids already exist with the option to skip the double entries, continue or abort. A single running conversion or either all conversions at once can be cancelled. Completed conversions can be cleared.

Fixed bugs

No more freezing when a lot of games are browsed. Multi-part files are correctly renamed/removed. When no internet connection can be established, instead of showing an empty space the missing cover image is set. Corrected fallback to the english cover image when no other was found for a game. Fixed some other minor bugs.

Updates

wit and wwt are not shipped along anymore, they can be downloaded automatically by selecting „File > Download WIT/WWT“. The preferences panel has been removed; the recurse depth option has been moved directly to the Open panel and the split option to the Convert panel, along with the output format option. Games are fetched incrementally. Saving and renaming of games can now be done via a token field where the new filename can be composed using some game details. Missing covers are downloaded as soon as games are browsed (this behavior can be disabled in the Open panel). Added a small column to the tableview that shows the miniature of the game cover. A click on the link „Powered by gametdb.com“ in the details view opens the web page of the game itself instead of the home page; the game synopsis has been added to the details view. Free/total space of the current drive is displayed in the status bar along with the number of games found. Search operations now run faster and apply by default to the title of the games; a different search context can be selected from the search field menu. Windows left open on application quit are automatically reopened on the next start and table view columns are restored as well.

Witgui 1.1.2

Download Witgui 1.1.2 (Mac OS X Lion or newer)

New features

You can now batch rename all currently loaded files, choosing among different naming schemes.

Fixed bugs

Fixed a bug that caused the cover image of a corrupt file not to be set to the default cover image. When deleting a game that is split up into 2 files, the second file is deleted, too (a second part file has extension .wbf1 or .iso.1).

Witgui 1.1.1

Download Witgui 1.1.1 (Mac OS X Lion or newer)

New features

Multiple selection allowed for starting multiple conversions (the user can choose the folder where to save all selected games and select the naming scheme for the created files) or deleting multiple games at once. When entering some text into the search field a bar appears just below the toolbar to select the search scope: you can search either your game list or the whole offline database.

Updates

Customization of the toolbar is not allowed anymore; this solves a bug that caused the conversions button to appear after a restart even if the user hadn’t moved it manually to the toolbar, which now shows only icons without labels. Added two entries to the File menu which allow to jump directly to the search field and select all games in the tableview.

Fixed bugs

The default players column is sortable. Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the app to crash when no game cover was found.

Witgui 1.1

Download Witgui 1.1 (Mac OS X Lion or newer)

New features

Rating, necessary and optional controls have been added to the list of game details. One column for every game detail can be added to the game table. The table entries are now sortable by clicking the column headers. Added a search field to look for any game detail. Games can be added to the conversion queue; no more modal dialogs, the popover with the conversion queue can be opened by clicking the appropriate toolbar item; queued games waiting for the conversion to begin can be removed from the queue. The selected game file can be moved to the trash and opened in the Finder. All missing covers for the currently listed games can be downloaded.

Fixed bugs

Custom toolbar items added to the toolbar are saved and restored on the next application startup. Resolved a bug that caused the table to show many empty lines after the game list.

Updates

Startup and save options and localizations have been removed to improve code mantainability (English is the only supported language now). The database is not shipped along with the app anymore: first-time users are prompted to download it, the others can still update it. When downloading or updating the database, it is now immediately used (no restart is required anymore). Database and game covers are stored into the Application Support folder. The log panel has been removed and so the Autosize option.

Known bugs

Table columns added by the user won’t be set up on the next application startup.
