Alright, newb with some questions:
Yeah, I know about mod chips. I had an old Xbox that I modded and ran Linux on.
I have a new mod chip coming from Canadamods. Should be here in a few days, already cleared customs. Just had a few basic questions maybe someone will be so kind to either answer or post a link that might have the info needed. I have no problem reading, or searching, I'm just not sure what I'm supposed to be searching for. Found answers to my questions that just lead to more questions.
1. With a mod chip (namely the Wiizard) can you load NES and SNES games via an SD card or do you transfer them over via DVD? If so, does this require homebrew? Will said games show up on the VC or are they playable from...where?
2. I've read about people worried about bricking their wii by trying to play a game that is not region formatted. Is there any truth to this?
3. How about playing games (ie, guitar hero) via a connection to a friend. I have a modded wii and a backup disc, he has the original game. Are they compatible?
4.What, exactly, are Wii friend codes used for? Do they have any in game advantage or is it just a chance to exchange mii's and such?
5. More of just a general question...what are some of your favorite games for Wii? I just really started to get into mine and am looking for different types of games that might be interesting and/or absurd.
If you can help a noob out and answer some of these questions, I'd greatly appreciate it!
