    Nintendo's IP and resetting all games

    I've got 2 unrelated questions:

    1) Does anyone know what IP's Nintendo uses for Wii updates? I've got a softmodded Wii and would like to go into my router settings to block access to whatever IP's Nintendo uses for updates.

    2) How can I reset all the games? I've spent the last couple weeks soft-modding the wii and setting up the USB HD, etc. and have tested several games for functionality. I want my kids to be able to see all the intro movies, etc. when they play and be prompted to create save files, etc. Is there one quick way to reset all game data to virgin state?

    Thanks in advance!

    i dont think it is necessary to block nintendo's IP address (if there is one anyway) just dont update. and as for the game data, i think u need to go to the data managment and delete them on by one!

    Well you're right.. just don't update.. BUT... I'm afraid somebody else in the family will accidentally sometime. Honestly it would be pretty tough since I have the Wii boot straight to USB Loader GX and I don't use the system menu at all. But still... I'd like that layer of protection.

    Damn... where does the Wii keep game data? I was hoping it was just the SD card so I could pop it into the laptop and quickly delete some files.

    Do you have prescrubbed iso games to prevent updates aswell as priiloader hacks which stop the update prompts?

    I do have priiloader configured so stop disc updates. I haven't scrubbed or done anything special do the iso's I've installed to my HD from my own discs. I've just allowed USB Loader GX to install them. Hmm.. do they get scrubbed from USB Loader GX or should I install games from discs another way?

    WBFS Manager automatically strips off the updates and other junk data.

    If you block these
    nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
    nus.shop.wii.com
    Your wii will not be able to update. Your shop channel probably won't work either. If you block it for your whole network, NUS will also not work, so it is best to only block it for the wii if possible.

    That's good since I've used WBFS Manager for most of my games. But I've also installed some on the HD with only USB Loader GX using original game discs. Does USB Loader GX scrub while installing games from original discs?

    Mauifrog - thanks for the ip's. I don't care if i don't have a shop channel as I don't intend to use the system menu at all if I can get away with it (booting straight to USB Loader GX). Any other possible consequences of blocking those domains? I don't care if my other computers can't access those sites.

    EDIT: I blocked the whole domain, wii.com and nintendo.com. Bordering overkill here... hopefully that won't cause any problems.

    When USB Loader GX rips a game, It only rips the game data.
