    Good afternoon from Wisconsin

    Good afternoon,

    Thank you for the informative and insanely detailed site; I can tell a lot of hard work has been done by all.

    I'm relatively new to the Wii and, judging by the pending introduction of Wii U, late to the game. We received it as a gift and I'm hoping the children get years of enjoyment before we decide to upgrade. Thus far, it has been very entertaining.

    If anything, I'm a PC gamer and consoles are foreign territory...never owned one and never planned to but, as I said, it was a gift.

    Thanks again for the incredible site...hopefully interest in modding the Wii doesn't wane with the Wii U.

    Ty

    Hello and welcome to


    Thank you for joining the best Nintendo Wii modding community there is. Please take time to read the Forum Rules and follow them, this will make your experience here a lot more enjoyable.

    We are here to help you with any problems you might have with your modding experience. But please remember to search and research for your problem before posting. Most of the time someone will have the same problem and a solution has been posted already. For help with searching tips you can look at the [GUIDE] Ultimate Searching Tool [Guide]


    Now if you want the best guide, in my opinion, to softmod your Wii. Follow the Softmod any Wii Guide, you can also use this guide to update your old softmod.

    But before you do have a look at Thinking about hacking a wii? Start here! [A basic introduction to Wii hacking]. This will give you a better understanding of how things work in your Wii.

    After you get your console sorted, you will need to find a way to backup your games. The best way is to copy them to an external hard drive or usb flash drive. You can copy them to DVD -r's, but only if your Wii's disc drive is old enough to be capable of reading them. Wii's made after Sept. of 2009 are not able to play backups from disc. You can check the Wii Drive Chip Database to see if yours will play DVD -r's.

    BEFORE GETTING A USB DRIVE CHECK THE USB COMPATIBILITY LIST.

    The recommended usb drive setup is fat32. Although, you can still use NTFS or WBFS loading.

    IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH A PARTICULAR GAME, CHECK THE ULTIMATE LIST OF TROUBLESOME GAMES, TO FIND A FIX FOR IT.


    IF YOU HAVE AN ERROR, CHECK THE ERROR INDEX

    WiiHacks also has a IRC Chatroom! So you can talk live to members and staff!

    First read the IRC Welcome & Rules

    All modchip users go to the modchip section.

    Also if someone helps you, it is greatly appreciated if you click the thanks button.
    You can also show your support to help us keep helping users, by making a small donation.

    There are many more guides for homebrew and Wii related fun. Also we have sections for other game systems for those of us that just can't get enough of any one console. I personally have multiple console and handheld game systems. So have fun browsing the site.

    I agree with the Go Pack! sentiment...sucks to be us right now. Don't know if I want the Giants to win it all now so I can feel that we lost to the champs or if I wan't the Niners to win out of spite.

    BTW, at McCarthy's final presser of the season he expressed support for Finley...I want him gone yesterday. In hearing interviews with Rodgers, sounds like Finley was running poor routes all season. Most of the time he made up for it with raw talent, according to Rodgers. But, to paraphrase Animal House, "Tall, lazy, and stupid is no way to win a Superbowl, son."

    Just softmodded the Wii, no problems thus far. The Softmod ANY Wii guide is almost perfect (had to look up some things in the forums for clarity).

    Again, thanks...awesome job by all.
