  1. This program has worked great, I really enjoyed it. I made the mistake of moving to Catalina which has disabled all applications using 32-bit so I have not been able to use it since I moved to the new os. I know that your application has been around a long time, but if you ever made it a 64 bit version, that would be pretty amazing. If not, I’ll just find another computer that is on Mojave so I can still use your app. Great work!

  2. I have tried to read Wii and GameCube discs on both my MacBook Pro and my MacMini Server. I have used both their built in optical drives as well as external USB DVD and BluRay drives. The MacBook automatically ejects the discs, you don’t get the option to do anything. The MacMini asks you to EJECT or IGNORE. Either way, you still can “see” the disc. WitGui doesn’t get the chance to SEE the discs either.

    The program RUNS fine on a Mac, but if it can’t read the discs, then what’s the point?

  3. Hi, first of all I love the application Witgui, I used it for a couple of days!

    But since I used the “update database” option it crashes as soon I open it.
    I removed and reinstalled, restarted the iMac, but nothing works anymore 🙁

    Please help!

    1. There seems to be a new game in the database without an ID which causes the crash. In the meantime (before the upcoming update), you can manually delete the database located at “/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/Witgui/wiitdb.xml”.

  4. Just wanted to thank you for a great application managing the wii and gamecube library on the Mac. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  5. When adding several games I find that the progress bar on the app icon in the dock/switcher goes way past 100%. Maybe some sort of rounding error?

  6. Hi, I deleted all my 79 games and chose verify. Then I went out for the afternoon. When I cam back, I was greeted with the message “this game seems corrupt” (can’t remember the exact words) but it did not tell me which game out of the 79 games. It would be great if there could be a column in the user interface that displayed the status of each game (tick for verified, cross for corrupt/unverified). Thanks! Really nice app.

  7. Hi,

    I am using OS X Yosemite and I can’t mount any partition from witgui.
    My key is properly connected and formatted in FAT32.

    I tried the CHMOD thing and also answered Yes in witgui to give admin access to wwt, but without any success. Witgui always displays 0 disk(s)/partition(s).
    I also tried to start witgui from the command line to see any error or exception, but can’t find any. The only text displayed in the console seems to be some output from wwt itself about program version.

    Any chance my OS version could be the root cause of this issue? If so, will be really sad as I can’t upgrade because too many licenses to buy again 🙁
    Tell me if I can give a hand in any way to fix this.

    Thanks for your work 🙂

  8. Hi and thanks for your efforts!
    Got this issue: version 2.2.8 on High Sierra, USB disk 500GB. I erased the partition as you suggest (Mac OS Extended – journaled), then I used Witgui to format WBFS. All well, the destination window gets shown. In the source window I list the games I have in a folder (they’re in subfolders and are already .wbfs files). When I drag-n-drop them, nothing happens.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks,
    Flavio.

  9. Cant format partition says drive couldn’t be unmounted, then says formatting but nothing happens. It works if I format the whole drive though Any fix ?

  10. So it seems in the latest version of witgui and latest osx I cannot actually drag games out of the witgui window when using wigui as the source window… shame because I used this extensively before.

    Also noticed that the app doesn’t populate the window with games on initial folder selection, requires pressing the refresh button first.

    Also noticed choosing a folder, closing it, and choosing the same folder again doesn’t bring up the window anymore.

    Too many bugs to be dependable anymore, used to love it ): Would love to see it restored to original glory, that’s why I’m leaving this comment. Thank you for all your hard work.

  11. hello first of all thanks for this great app, the best for osX!
    i have a bug to report:
    – in fat32 names shouldn’t include some specific symbols, the app should recognize those chars on the game names and cut them off while naming stuff. now the app just gives an importing error and that’s it

    and i also have few feature suggestions:
    – an option to save naming patterns
    – a panel to configure the hd paths structure: like wii games in /wbfs, gc games /games

    1. Yes, FAT32 only supports a limited range of characters. For the moment being, if you encounter a conversion/renaming error make sure to validate the title of the game or any other game detail which may contain strange characters.

      1. I’m having trouble creating partitions on OS X sierra on my USB so that I can format it to wbfs. Any help with that

        1. 1) Open the Disk Utility (in /Applications/Utilities).
          2) Select your USB drive and click on the Erase button in the toolbar.
          3) Make sure you select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and GUID Partition Table, then click on Erase to confirm.
          4) Now you can click on the Partition button in the toolbar to add some more partitions.

  12. Thank you very much for this app!!! It’s fantastic.
    This is my problem: I have one Witgui 2.2.6 installation on El Capitan and when I open database to browse it I find also italian titles. Another installation of witgui 2.2.6 on Sierra and when I open database the italian titles are miss. The two database are updated.
    One examples if I search croods on database:

    El Capinat results:
    – DreamWorks The Croods: Prehistoric Party! & Rise …
    – The Croods: Prehistoric Party!
    – I Croods: Festa Preistorica!

    Sierra results:
    – DreamWorks The Croods: Prehistoric Party! & Rise …
    – The Croods: Prehistoric Party!
    – The Croods: Prehistoric Party!

    There are two times in english.
    Thank you for the help.

    1. It seems like Sierra changed the format in which languages are saved. This issue will be resolved with the next update.

  13. Thank you so much for making this!!! I haven’t found any GUI as good as this for wit. Really really appreciate it. Well done.

    1. Subfolder searching can be enabled from the options in the Open panel. Dropping folder onto the Quick Start window to open them will be added to the next update.

      1. Subfolders were well hidden! Pressing space bar to get the info like quicklook would be nice too. Pressing ⌘-I is a bit awkward.

  14. Thank you so much for maintaining this amazing application. It is very much appreciated.

    I have one question. I see all the covers when browsing in witgui but when I browse the games in the USB loader on the wii before choosing a game to play, the covers are not there, only a bland image and fortunately the name of the game.

    Anyway to have witgui sync the cover art so it is saved on the hard drive? Or am I doing something wrong perhaps 🙂

    1. The covers that you see in the app are downloaded from the internet and are saved locally on your Mac, they cannot be saved in the games directly. If you want to see the covers in your USB Loader, you should make sure that you have an internet connection on the Wii and the loader supports downloading the covers.

      1. Thanks a lot for the fast reply. Good to know so I do not loose time trying to find an option in the app that does not exist 🙂

        Again, great work with the tool.

  15. Hi, using WitGUI for WII ISOs and wbfs files works great. However, whenever I try to copy over a Gamecube ISO to my wbfs-formatted USB stick, it looks successful in WitGUI but on USBLoaderGX on the Wii these games always show up in the list with no title or details, and won’t load. Any suggestions? Are GC games meant to go on the wbfs partition? Thanks!

    1. GameCube games don’t work out of the box when using a USB Loader, you first have to install the necessary components on your Wii.

  16. Is it possible to export scrubbed gamecube ISO files? The exported ISO files are now always 4.7GB. When i’m using windows tools the gamecube ISO’s are a lot smaller (1.46 GB)

    1. ISO images will always occupy 4.7 GB when created with wit. You can use a WBFS partition or save the games in the wbfs format, which takes care of scrubbing automatically.

  17. It says 25 partitions/discs found…but doesn’t let me choose none of them….the arrow appears faded and doesn’t allow to select nothing

    1. To open a FAT partition or any other partition that is visible in the Finder, please select the “Folder” button in the Quick Start window ant not the “WBFS partition” button.
