Unsure about what i need to do only to be able to play wads and nothing else
I have been following Messies Softmod 4.2 guide, but my questions aren't mainly about that guide, but about hacking in general. This is my first post so i'll try and keep it formal.
What i want: To be able to play downloaded NES, SNES and N64 games. I think you refer to these as "wads".
What i don't understand: What parts of for example Messie's guide do i actually need to do to be able to do that? The guide doesn't seem to explain what Part B, C and D actually are for, and after part A i got several nice options to choose from when in HBC, including something about Wads. Can't i just skip the rest of the guide and install that Wad option and be done with this?
What i did and what happened: Virgin 4.2E > Installed the pack from step A of Messie's guide from a new FAT32 formatted 2GB Sandisk SD card, which gave me HBC, DVDX and Bootmii in IOS mode > Got a note about a new version of HBC available (1.06) so i downloaded that and only installed the HBC option > Tried to start up Bootmii at part B of Messie's guide to get rid of ios249, whatever that is good for, and got stock at a black screen.
Do i even need to be messing with Bootmii and all that? I wish the Messie would explain what each step in his guide actually was for so i wouldn't have to ask these questions. It's a good guide otherwise though.
