What you need
- A computer with either Windows 10 or newer or any Unix-based system
- RiiConnect24 Patcher
Section I - Installing Dolphin
If you have Dolphin already installed, skip to Section II
- Download the latest Dolphin beta version, but not a stable version as these are very outdated!
- Extract the .7z file using a program like 7-Zip or WinRAR.
- Start Dolphin.
- In Dolphin, go to
Perform Online System Update-> Choose your region.
If you have a homebrewed Wii console, you can use a BootMii NAND dump instead of installing the system files with the System Update option. See this page for more information.
Section II - Installing RiiConnect24
If you use a Windows version before Windows 10, you unfortunately cannot use WiiConnect24 inside Dolphin. You can use this program to run it instead.

- Be patient…
- After it’s done, we would appreciate if you take a minute to send anonymous feedback to us. If you don’t want to, close the patcher. All the files should already be on your SD Card.
- In Dolphin, go to
Install WAD. Install all the WAD files one by one.
- Unzip AnyGlobe Changer v1.0 and run the boot.dol file. Select your region and save. This will allow the Everybody Votes Channel to work.
Unfortunately, Wii Mail doesn’t work in Dolphin yet.
You will have to launch the Everybody Votes Channel 4 times at most in order for it to start working.
If you’re getting any other errors with the Forecast Channel or the News Channel, such as an error code starting with FORE or NEWS or a discontinued message, you can try to delete your VFFs with RC24-Clear-Tool.
