Getting false/non-stop Error Code 60000? READ THIS
#1
Information 
Usually, an Error Code 60000 indicates you tried connecting to the MKW server using an FC that was made on some other server. To remedy this problem, you simply wipe the license. However sometimes a bug can occur and you will get a faulty EC 60000 for a license. 

The bug only occurs on ALTWFC-type servers (the same kind nintendowifi.org uses), it does not occur on Wiimmfi. The bug occurs if a person's NAND does not have a DWC_Authdata file when they connect to any ALTWFC type server. The server will select a User ID number based on the next highest one available, then give you that User ID number. The game will take that number and make a DWC_Authdata file with it on your NAND. Somehow once this occurs, if you reconnect online, the server hiccups reading the DWC file and comparing it to your profile ID. So Error Code 60000 occurs.

This usually happens to users who get on an ALTWFC-type server with Dolphin's Default NAND. That nand comes with no DWC_Authdata file. Obviously, this rarely happens to Wii Consoles because by this point in time after so many Consoles have been on some server by now, the odds of a Console's nand not having a DWC_Authdata file is rare.

There are two methods you can do is remedy this problem. The first method is the easiest but its not 100% permanent. It requires the use of an ocarina cheat code every time you want to go online. The second method is permanent, but it takes more steps and is more complicated.

FYI: If you have any licenses that are bugged, delete them. Once a license receives the bugged EC 60000, that particular license is 'broken' permanently.



Method #1 (Cheat Code method)


Use the cheat code in this thread - http://mkwii.org/showthread.php?tid=819

Use a random number for the XYWZ values. Make a GCT with the code. Launch MKWii with the code on. Use a blank license, or wipe a license and make a new one. Connect online with the new license. Once online, reconnect. There will be no error codes. The only issue with this code is that you will need that code (with w/e specific XYWZ value you set too) to ever reconnect on that specific license.

So this is the quickest method, but it's not permanent. If you are fine with using this cheat code all the time, then you are finished with this guide. Congratz.



Method #2 (Edit DWC_Authdata file within NAND)

Use this method if you want to make changes permanent. First thing's first, if you are getting the bugged EC 60000 on Dolphin's Default NAND (not on a real Wii console), the quickest way to remedy this is to import your NAND backup if you have one. A guide to teach you how to do this is HERE. The guide is tailored towards Linux Users, but if you use Dolphin on Windows, the only difference is how Dolphin is booted. Follow the tutorial but boot Dolphin however you boot it on your Windows Computer.

Ok, let's say you don't have a NAND backup for import, or you are getting this bug on a Wii Console and don't want to use the cheat code every time... 

Dolphin Users: Follow Chapter 1a

Wii Console Users: Follow Chapter 1b



Chapter 1a: Edit DWC_Authdata (proceed to Chapter 1b if you are on a real Wii console)

You need to edit the DWC_Authdata file of your Dolphin NAND. For linux machines, this is at /home/yourusername/.local/share/dolphin-emu/Wii/shared2. Inside the shared2 folder, you will see a file named DWC_Authdata.

I don't own a Windows machine, so I wouldn't know where your NAND files are stored for Dolphin in Windows. A quick Google search should help you find the answer if you don't know. Just find the shared2 folder.

Obviously don't have Dolphin running when preforming these instructions. You will need a Hex Editor. Do a google search for HxD and install it. Windows installation is simple and anyone can do it on their own. Linux users must run it via Wine emulation. Open HxD, open the DWC_Authdata file. Here is an example DWC_Authdata file

00 00 04 AC 01 F0 1D 9E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Do not edit any of the values in red font. The digit in blue font can be any number from 0 - 8. The values in green can be any Hex value (0 - 9, A - F). Just make a few changes to the file and save it. HxD will make a '.bak' copy of the original file. Move the .bak file somewhere else for safekeeping.

Chapter 1b: Edit DWC_Authdata  (for real Wii console only)

You will need to download the ToolBox package - Contact me via discord (zakmkw#8365) for download information.

Unzip the ToolBox package. Format your SD card, and move all the contents within the ToolBox folder to the SD.

SD into Wii, power on Wii. Launch HBC. Launch the FS ToolBox app.

Fstoolbox will begin listing items that are patched and not patched. Once that is done, you will see a menu giving you some tips on how to dump/extract files, etc. Press A to continue. A small warning will flash for a few seconds, then a list of directories will appear.

Navigate down to shared2 and press A. You will then see a new list of more directories and a file named DWC_AUTHDATA. Move your cursor down and make sure it is selected on DWC_AUTHDATA. Press (-) minus button on your Wii Remote. Once dumping is complete, press the Home button to exit fstoolbox to HBC. Turn off Wii, take out SD card and place it into your computer.

You will need a Hex Editor. Do a google search for HxD and install it. Windows installation is simple and anyone can do it on their own. Linux users must run it via Wine emulation. Open HxD, open the DWC_Authdata file (it will be in the /FSTOOLBOX/shared2 folder of the SD card). Here is an example DWC_Authdata file.

00 00 04 AC 01 F0 1D 9E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Do not edit any of the values in red font. The digit in blue font can be any number from 0 - 8. The values in green can be any Hex value (0 - 9, A - F). Just make a few changes to the file and save it. HxD will make a '.bak' copy of the original file. Move the .bak file somewhere else for safekeeping.

SD card back into Wii. Boot wii, load HBC, launch FS Toolbox. Do exactly as before, except this time, press the (+) plus button on the file DWC_AUTHDATA. Once file is written, press the home to go back to HBC, then go back to system menu. Now reboot the Wii.


Conclusion for Method #2

Once you have made your NAND changes. Launch your game. Use a new license or delete one to make a new one. Go online. Once online, reconnect. There will be no error codes. The bug is permanently fixed.
