    Just installed Homebrew, now what

    Just installed Homebrew via Twilight and loaded the enumerators. Now what?

    What is the purpose of converting games to WADs?

    Well, that's the money question, isn't it? Now what.

    Well.....Don't convert games to wads, if you want to be safe. Thay take up space on your Wii, not your SD card. Well, only use .WADS if you plan on getting WiiWare or N64 Y can get them off torrent sites (and there is an excellent thread on the site liking to many VC and WiiWare downloads (Look at the bottom of the post)

    The purpose is to get backups of your channels....*cough*

    Actually, I think I prefer to use emulators. The game files for emulators are much smaller. Do you want Google Maps on your Wii? Download it. Physics playground? Download it.

    I'd start off with the Homebrew Browser, and then just look around for stuff that interests you.

    Thanks, So WADs are the channel applications from the main menu.
