I'm new in this, need help?
I have brend new Wii, I donloaded games from forums posted by members in ISO size 4.5-4.6 GB and I used WiiBrickBlocker_v1_3R2 before burn, my zone is usa and will use only for my zone games, I don't whant to use internet connection so my question is; can I play without any problem on wii or I need do something more to play like modif... loader or backup , do I need this for only simple play? or I will be fine without this , just play. I red many post and still not clear to me. Thanks for direct me.
Is your wii softmodded or hard mod? Do you have any loaders or homebrew channel installed yet? and with that you need to install a few files with wad manager and such programs and most importantly is your wii at system menu 4.0U? if its at 3.4U dont update just, wait for someone to give you a better answer than me...
so, do you have any of those programs installed on your wii? have you used the twilight hack yet?
My wii is new in the box, din't do nothing, before I start I need some information, like I said if I don't whant use or huck-up to the internet do I need all softmodd or I can copy to dvd, before burn used brickblocker and play, this is for my kids birthday will be day after tomorow so I can unpack wii and see what version is. If someone can help me with that info.. Thanks

Here is one of those many and glorious tutorials. Its seem alot more simple after you do it.
yes, the thread as shown by Natal is the ONLY one that u should focused on, at the moment. if everthing goes right, the birthday gift is just on-time !
u must hv the wii console soft-modded according to the Tut, before u can play any download dvd-r (ISO). otherwise, buy authentic games for his joy.
the latest wii firmware version is 4.0U. a brandnew wii in box is (99.999% sure!) 3.3/3.4U. so, if u hook to internet and proceed an UPDATE, u'll be 4.0U. DON'T DO THAT ! keep yourself at 3.3/3.4u for a while. everything be fine.... and only accept "update" when a usa game disc is loaded. u download only usa game files; and let the game updates ur wii, play safe.
for only simple play? if i could say, buy your son a Mario_KArt-usa package with Nintendo-wheel. u can play on-line and get into Worldwide Race with it. the game is popular; and u could put it back to eBay after u manage the softmod and burn ur backups. lol
again, when u firstly setup the on-line linkage of Mario_Kart, never accept the Nintendo wifi update at thiis moment. step away from being 4.0U.... my comment for u.

That's mean for now I can download wii games from forum NTSC that is my region and play on wii without softmod ? . I downloded one game ntsc for my region make sure is the same, unrar and have iso file 4,589,824 KB then I used " WiiBrickBlocker " to avoid any updates then I burn with imgburn at 3x to DVD LG drive, so do you thing I can play safe with 3.3 or 3.4 without softmod ? or still I must allow game update if ask to let me play?. Thanks again for your time with me or anyone to get me right answare.
You must have the soft mod to play the downloaded games. Like said before there are many tuts on how to do so on this great site. Once you have the softmod inplace then you can play all your downloaded games. Just do a search for it here on site
Thanks for answer. I will do that.

what happens if u come back and say 3.3E/3.4E ? 3.3J/3.4J ?
if u download wii games from forum, ie. NTSC, assumed, again , that is ur region, u still can't play on wii without softmod !! softmod is a MUST mechanism (either software, or software aspect) for the Wii to 'read & load' ISO into.
downloded one game for ur region doesn't mean it's fool-proof. Mishandling might happen and risk ur wii. u can verify the game region with ImgBurn against the ISO before burning it.
ie. ImgBurn ->Mode-> Read
ImgBurn ->TOOL -> Drive -> Sector View
...... J=jap=NTSC-J, E/P=Europe=PAL, U=usa=NTSC-U..... as shown on game title and game number .
Playing same region ISO's is fine, and always fine!!!!! ....and use the ISO as is. Using "WiiBrickBlocker" to avoid any updates is not a REAL need; but causing u unexpected error. as of today, there's no game may up u to 4.0 ; at the most 3.4 !
again, the softmod allows u to "load and read" the ISO, yet, the wii_firmware versions(eg. 3.2/3.3/3.4/4.0) justify the playable or non-playable of the game in console.
so, still u must allow game update if ask to let play. get it ?
oop...am i too talkative ?...:P
