Hi, I am new to owning a Wii - this is my first console since the OG XBOX. I bought a large collection of games at a great price (about 30 games for $100) and a couple of new games as well. I back up everything digitally and now I guess I have a day or so of ripping ahead of me.
Anyway, I used XFlak's ModMii and everything went off without a hitch. I'm new to Wii modding but am a seasoned pro when it comes to Android and Apple devices. Great app/guide that cleared up through the process all of the questions I had reading guides before while preparing to do the mod. Much respect and thanks to XFlak.
I am having problems with your IRC channel, however. When I click the link to accept the terms to get voice, it links me to another member's profile. My IRC username is Backslider - but I guess someone else owns that name here and the service thinks I'm the wrong person. I don't want to PM mods because it clearly says I'll get banned - What should I do?
You have to use your forum nick but without the full stop in it
and welcome to
Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!
First off you need to read the Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the
The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog
This guide works for all wii's
And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking
There are also other guides which you can find in the Guides and tutorials section
Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.
Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.
I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.
What you will need to know -
What drives are compatible - Usb Compatibility list
How to set your drive up - Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD
Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
