    Ca wiiconnect24, homebrew and usbloader

    Hello, I am a relatively new wii user. I had the usbloader installed on my wii and i am getting familar with the homebrew channel and the attributes of the usbloader program..... what cool stuff!!! My question is this, is it safe to turn on wiiconnect24 as long as i do not do any "wii" updates from nintendo and do not have the standby feature (i think that is what it is called) running. I have done several searches onsite for Wiiconnect24 but without wading through 100's of pages of info i cannot seem to find the info i'm looking for. I have also seen an Opera app for the homebrew channel, does anyone suggest this for usage. Thankyou in advance for any info

    Question Homebrew won't recognize my hd.

    I got a 500g WD passport elite. I have a 16 gig Fat32 partintion on it that I set to active the rest is wbfs for games. All my HB apps including HB browser recognize my hd but the HB channel wont unless I disconnect it and reconnect after loading the channel. I have to keep doing this every time I close an app and return to the HB channel. It just won't stay connected and its getting rather annoying.

    Is this a hd compatibilty issue or a bug in the HB channel or a bad setting somewhere?

    Ive loaded all my hb apps on a sd card in the meantime but I would rather have that space available for RB2 DLC.

    If anybody has a fix for this pleeeaase let me know.

    Ok Everyone, I have had my Wii since Xmas, and I am bored Stiff playing wii sports and Mario Kart!

    It's time to take it to the next level, I heard that you can load games onto an external hard drive, then it turn play them on the Wii. Is this correct?

    I have the HBC installed as far as Step A in this tut full-hacking-guide-4-2-system-menus.html

    I am assuming I must complete to the end of section D, Will this then allow me to play games from my 80gig external HDD?

    That is a very good guide. If you follow it through section D5 you will be able to play from from a external HDD. Anything after is optional take time to read it through and understand everyting before starting. Some of those steps ould turn your wii into a lovely brick if they aren't done properly. (hat is the risk of softmodding)

    gen3sf made a good guide on how to format and load games on a compatible HDD. Not all drives are compatible and there is a link in his guide that will point you to a fairly complete list. I recommend you check it out.

    Little wad games

    I don't even know how to ask this question but here goes. I can d/l a 4+ GB game and burn it to dvd with Imgburn. I can then play it in my softmodded wii and even copy the game to the HDD which is attached.
    However, I keep seeing these small games on torrent sites with size anywhere from 10 to 50 MB, If I d/l them they turn out to be wad files.
    I can't burn these to a dvd
    So, here is the question (finally). How do I play all these lovely little games on my Wii. They look like some great old arcade games like Frogger etc and I really want to play them.
    I am installing a new 250GB HD and wonder how to partition and format it., i.e., how much in WBFS and how much in NTFS.
    Oh, I did upgrade ro 4.2 from 4.0 before I saw the warning but was able to softmod ok

    Thanks

    Be careful when installing wads on your wii, only install wads from a reliable source (read any user comments) there are some bad wads out there that could seriously mess up you wii.

    Too answer your question. I have 43 games on my wbfs which takes up about 110gs. I have a 16g fat32 (fat32 is recommended) for all my homebrew stuff and about 140 VC and Wiiware game wads, and a few psx roms. So far it is about 7gs. I never install everything all at once (wiis pathetic 500mb memory) so if I run out of space Ill back it up to my pc and install it when I want.

    You want to be sure of your partition size when you make them cause so far there is no way of resizing a wbfs part. without loosing all its contents.

    Hope this give you a better idea of how much you might need.

    Is it OK/necessary to update from Homebrew 1.5 to 1.6? I get a message saying there is an update available.

    In the Full 4.2 Hack guide do i need a gamcube controller to go past part A?

    Is there somewhere with full Wii Terminology? Hopelessly lost.
