    Wii VC Virtual Console Questions (wad files)

    Just completed the softmod hack and everything works great, running backups off USB, SNES and N64 emus, etc. I have a few N64 wad files, the questions I have are:

    1. Do I just run wad manager and install the N64 wads I have?
    2. Is there ANY danger of this bricking or doing anything bad to my system?
    3, After installing the WADs, the game will appear as a channel and will be stored on the Wii flash drive forever (until removed)
    4. Is there any way to run the game (currently in wad format) from an SD or USB drive to save Wii space?
    5. I tried the Wii64 emu and it looks great, is there a good reason to use VC at all?

    I think that concludes my noob questions, but if there's anything else to consider which I neglected to ask, feel free to chime in.

    Thanks for the help.

    4. You can use wii menu to transfer game to an SD Card, it was supported as of
    menu 4.0
    5. Wii64 is not complete and slows down on a lot of games, VC Games work properly.

    How does that wii menu work? Install wad, then what? Do I uninstall the wad after that? Suppose I'm doing Super Mario 64. I am in a near panic of doing something to break my wii, which will cause my wife and kids to break mii.

    Thanks for the help.

    2. Banner bricks are the only risk from wad files, make sure you have priiloader installed, or bootmii/boot2.

    4. Triiforce (NAND emulation) is another option.


    Transfer to SD occurs in the data management>Channels section. I believe it's the Move option. The wad must be installed first to NAND and then Moved to SD, the process removes the channel from NAND and saves you space. When you come to play the game it will be copied back to NAND temporarily.

    If you play a lot of VC or WW then consider Triiforce.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
