    Two things, those links to the different revisions are broken (just beacause of a little formatting error). But more importantly, my installer will only let me select d2x v6, 5 or 4. It wont let me install 8 which is what I downloaded, what gives?

    Links fixed, thanks for pointing out the error. The extracted d2x v8 files must be located in the sd/apps/d2x-cios-installer folder for the installer to work correctly.

    Thanks for the guide and downloads. Very helpful!
    Quick question: how do I go about updating d2x? I assume that I just have to install the d2x-v9 wads in this guide, as I used the "Softmod ANY Wii" guide which included the v8 wads. It'll simply overwrite those, correct?

    Yes it will simply overwrite the old. You can do this with any version of d2x, whether it be "upgrading" or "downgrading".

    Thanks for the guide Cjizzle. To my surprise, this guide was made pretty recently. It's just what I needed to, now I can help my friends to install this, using the knowledge from here.
    The d2x installer is pretty complex to most ppl that don't understand the Wii's ios.

    I followed the Soft-mod Any Wii guide and there is no WAD file on my SD Card. I guess we're supposed to create one? I do we unzip the above directly onto the SD Card?

    Thanks.

    If you're planning on doing the offline installation (For users with no wireless connection) then you just simply create the wad folder on the root of your SD card. Placing all the necessary wads into it, following the rest of the offline guide.
    If I were you, I'd go for v10, beta 53.

    I had no idea how much more simpler it was to do the offline installation rather than the online one. It's pretty much fool proof.

    Thanks again - you've been a star in helping me!

    I did create a WAD folder as well as transfer the default folder name and all files across, but I could have created a folder and called it NIGEL for all it matters - the Wiimod asked where the files were and I just selected the folder on the SD Card. I couldn't believe how simple it was!

    FYI: I did this using the OFFLINE version. I didn't even attempt the online one as I have trouble getting my Wii online and didn't install the Shopping Channel update when soft-modding, so am now too afraid to access the net via Wii.

    Haha it's perfectly safe to access the internet using the Wii, in any way. If you have wireless connection, don't fear using it. It's the same as downloading a direct file on a browser, there's nobody tracking you.

    About the wad folder, it was always the default folder we used back in the day, some programs still use it. But you're right, you can name it whatever you want, these wad installation programs always ask what folder to use anyways. But calling it wad would be good for your convenience, so you'd know what it is.
