Introducing a New Side Project: GC/Wii Disc Filesystem Catalog

Throughout my research for Harvest Moon: A Proud Life, I’ve come across numerous odd files.

Many of these file types are common across various other Gamecube and Wii games. Some are less common.

That’s why I’ve decided to start a new project. I’ll be analyzing any GC/Wii dumps I can get my hands on so that I can log their disc contents. I plan on analyzing/posting a different game each day.

Each post will be tagged as GCN or Wii. All applicable file types (e.g. .tpl, .arc, .txt, etc.) will also be added as tags.

My goal is that other modders can easily check if there are other games that use a specific file type. I hope that this project will serve the community as a useful reference.

This new project will be located at gcwiifst.home.blog.

Here’s an example of what each disc analysis will look like…
