    playing wii ware from usb hdd still uses lots of blocks

    I have my wii working just fine with usb hdd partitioned with WBFs and FAT32, i copied the wii ware game (samurai shodown) to the wad folder on my usb hdd on the fat32 partition, i then run the homebrew channel and started wad manager and installed the wii ware game, upon reboot i could see the samurai shodown channel but when i ran it i got the error #002, thats another issue though as i have all the relevant ios's, what i did notice is that when i went to uninstall it i noticed it took up a lot of blocks so i dont think i am actually running it from the usb hdd at all...its just installed it from there...what i want to know is it possible to have wiiware forwarders so you have a channel but all the bulk is on the hdd ?..i am looking towards this guide >>[GUIDE] Play VC/Wiiware via ISO Forwaders [GUIDE]<< does this guide facilitate what i suggest ? namely being able to have wiiware as a channell but the bulk is on the hdd ??

    your not running it off you hdd mate when you install a wad it uses the wii's memory, my favourte way of loading wiiware and vc game is uloader the link is in my sig it wont give you channels tothe games but you can load them all from the one loader and it wont use your wii's memory

    ^^^^^^^^pimpness from the mighty bmarlo ^^^^^^^^

    Reading into SNEEK i believe means having to install/run something prior to playing vc/ww and also i would want to use unsneek as i want it on the hdd but even then it stipulates you need an sd card though i am not sure whether it needs it for initial application to install unsneek and then you can boot off hdd or whether it is needed all the time...this is for kids so i just want to have the channels there and they just click them so basically its running off the usb hdd, my wii runs totally free of an sd card and thats how i want to keep it, i do use an sd card to install things though but do not use it for everday use.

    Well got that all going, its plays via the usb loaders and has covers (for most)...not really what i am after though but is a temporary work around...is it possible to have the wads based on the hdd and the forwarder as a channel..as that is what i really want ?

    Well, you can now make a forwarder for your ISO forwarder if you want...I did this once. It worked but was slow. All you have to do is follow the game forwarder guide and make a forwarder wad for your iso forwarder. LOL

    Makes no sense right? Treat it as a wii game, make a forwarder for it. Look here.
    Damn I suck!!!!
