New to the Wii World
Picking up my first Wii today because of this site. When I saw the homebrew possibilities for this system on this site, I had to get one. I am an avid gamer and a progressive hacker. The stuff you guys post on here looks like a foreign language to me, which excites me. So anyway, I'm Jay and I live and thrive in Pensacola, FL. I'm into computers, tattoos, and fast cars. Hope to gain some good info off of this site and maybe I can help someone out who needs it. Feel free to email me any time with any requests you can think of.
Hello Jay and welcome to the wiihacks community.
I know you are anxious to get started; but, there are a few items to cover before you post your questions or start doing anything to your Wii.
Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii particularly useful. Make sure to either look through the site tutorials and guides or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-newbie-corner/.
Wiihacks also has a chat room on irc://irc.uicn.net/wiihacks . After reading the iRC rules, please feel free to join in the light-hearted chats and activities. While any IRC client can connect to #wiihacks on the UICN , there are tutorials to help you connect using either ChatZilla or mIRC.
If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.
Maybe this guide will help you with that foreign language sensation: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-wii-faq.html. Enjoy your stay with us.
