    What is neogamma and what do I need it for?

    I recently just got my Wii softmodded. My cousin has the modchip.
    We both tried burning Isos to DVD+R to play games. Neither of our Wiis will read the disc.
    I heard something about neogamma r6 or something.
    What is it for? Do I need it to play games? How do I use it? Please help, I am a complete noob when it comes to Wii hacking

    DVD+R will never work on a Wii unless you wish for your disc drive to die. Use DVD-R/DVD-R DL
    Neogamma is required (along with cIOS) to play backup copies on softmodded Wii's and occasionally bad games on hardmodded wii's.
    next time USE THE SEARCH BAR and find tutorials before asking these questions because THEY CAN HELP YOU OUT! and because it pisses off the admins when they see another one of these threads instead of people searching.

    thanks.
    So what do I need to do with neogamma? Can you post a link to another thread for me? I'm a noob when it comes to this.
    I used this site's tutorial to hack my wii: Hack Your Wii for Homebrew without Twilight Princess - Wii - Lifehacker

    NeoGamma is a backup loader for people who hacked their wii without modchips. Since wii games run on things called IOSs which come in different versions etc: IOS30, IOS60 etc. The Original IOSs which have numbers under 200 are made to run original games but cannot run backups, softmod basically downgrades a couple of these IOSs are allows to install a custom IOS249. NeoGamma runs games off of this IOS249. That's how'd i put it in simple language. If you want to softmod here is a guide:

    i did the tutorial you gave me up to step 5.
    In step 5, I didn't want the preloader so i didn't install it.
    but where do I get the stuff needed for step 5, part D?
    This:
    d) In the Preloader menu select Homebrew Channel (if you didn't install Preloader then just open HBC as normal), run Wad Manager 1.4, use default settings (IOS249 & SD card) and install these wads from the 'wad' folder:

    IOS38-64-v3610
    IOS50-64-v4889
    IOS53-64-v5149
    IOS55-64-v5149
    NeoGammaR7

    I don't have that.
    Where can I get them?
