    That's no trouble : ) If everything's working correctly, then that's good then. Why fix what isn't broken hey? Enjoy your hacking and keep an eye on your kids lol. If you ever need help again, don't hesitate to ask.

    Thank you , I do have another question. On my SD Card I currently have apps,bootmii,private,wad,bootelf,installer and IOS38-64WAD folder. How do you put games,emulators etc on the SD card and then on the Homebrew Channel? Also do I keep the above mentioned folders on my SD card? Does the SD Card have to be in the Wii
    @ all times when playing? Sorry for so many questions.............once again thanks for everything.....

    That's perfectly fine. Yes, the SD card must remain in the Wii at all times while playings games through the HBC.

    You do need to keep these folders. The "wad" folder is important for when installing wads (such as updating cIOS without an internet connection and installing forwarder channels). The IOS38-64WAD folder you can delete, it doesn't sound necessary. Just move the contents of the folder (presumably IOS38-64.wad) to the "wad" directory and you can delete that folder.

    The "private" directory is where all your Wii game saves (if backed up on the SD card) are stored, alongside any channels you may have copied or moved to the SD card and/or any photos that can be accessed through the photo channel. It's a directory that's on pretty much everyone's SD card if they use it for their Wii, hacked or not. If you delete it, when it's plugged into the Wii it'll just create it again anyway.

    The "bootelf" and "installer" directories can be deleted, just back them up on the computer first for safety's sake. And now to the grand daddy of all the folders...

    The "apps" directory. Perhaps the most important when talking about the HBC. Everything you wish to access has to be in this folder. This link will take you to a page where you can download all sorts of emulators for the Wii. For a quick example of how to set it up, you should have the "apps" directory on your SD card, say drive H. So your paths should look like this if you were to play NES games on the Wii using the emulator fceugx.

    H:\apps\fceugx\

    In this folder there will be three items, one called "meta.xml", one called "icon.png" and the last being "boot.dol". The HBC will read this and the "icon.png" will show up as the logo for fceugx, the "meta.xml" will provide the information and the "boot.dol" is the emulator itself. As for where you store the games, you store them in this directory

    H:\fceugx\roms\

    So say if we were to play Megaman 2. It would read:

    H:\fceugx\roms\MegaMan2.nes

    And similarly for all other emus (Snes9xgx, vbagx etc). Sorry if this post overcomplicated things, but just click the link and each individual emulator will have the instructions on that page. Enjoy : )

    Great info worked like a charm. You have been so helpful along with other members.
    Its probably the easiest thing to do but reading and reading forum after forum I cant get NeoGamma as a channel. I dont want my kids going into HBC to get it becuase who knows what they will do lol.. Where and what goes on the card? I tried so many different ways.............thanks

    Download the NeoGamma WAD file. Put it in the WAD folder on your SD card. Launch WAD Manager in HBC. Install that WAD. It'll be in a channel now.

    Pretty much : ) Just make sure when running Waninkoko's "WAD Manager" that you choose to read from Wii SD Slot and IOS249

    Something else you could do if you're worried about kids is remove everything dangerous from your sd card and put it into a folder on your hard drive. Do you really want your kids playing around with any title deleter? Negative. How often do people use that stuff anyways. If you ever need it just put it back on your sd. If it's there and accessible to children, always assume the will exploit it to ruin all of your efforts.

    This is kinda off the subject but a few of you have really helped me out a lot. I burned Lego Rock Band and it worked great. Today I put the game in and it works great but
    our Rock Band instruments don't work. So I changed the game and put in Rock Band that I purchased from Best Buy and all worked well. So after searching and changing settings I noticed that every time I started NeoGamma to load the game the light on my Rock Band USB connector goes off. When I exit NeoGamma the light comes back on.
    Its really strange because we used all the instruments the day before. I re-burned the game but it did the same. Thanks............
