general after softmod questions
Posting a few noob questions. Your patience and understanding is certainly appreciated.
I acquired a recently softmodded wii. It has the following loaded
2) usb loader as a channel
3) Gamma loader as a channel installed
This is an awesome site and I'm trying to read up on as much as I can but it is like trying to get a drink from the firehose. LOL
That being said, I'm sure I'll have many questions along the way but I'll start with these first. Again, these are noobie questions, hey..I gotta start somewhere, right ?? ;-).
1) I'm nervous about downloading/playing PAL games due to fear it might overwrite something and render my softmod useless. I 'think' I've read that on softmod, any region game can be played. So, do I have a valid concern or am I just being paranoid? How can I safeguard the wii and prevent something from happening in terms of accidental updates etc.
In my reading, I've come across something called a 'brickblocker" - can I install that to safeguard the wii? To keep things simple, I was told not to update the system version. Currently, it is on 3.1u. Originally, I'm told it was 2.2u but using MarioKart, it was safely upgraded.
2) For the most part, I'm not planning on transferring games from Original DVDs to USB hard drive. I plan on using .ISO's files in conjunction with WBFS manager to transfer the .ISOs to the USB hard drive. When I transfer the ISO to a WBFS formatted drive, the options are set to download the covers as well. However, why is it that the game covers are visible through the WBFS manager for all the games, but for some games, when looking them through USB loader or Gamma loader, they are not visible ?
3) Can I launch/play scrubbed games ? Should I treat them no different when installing them ?
Thanks for your time
