Specific walkthrough guide to softmodding please?
Hi all, firstly, I love this forum, :o it's active and filled with friendly and helpful users, and I feel safe asking you guys already, but basically I'm nervous about this soft modding business...
I once had a Wii back in the days of yore, but since moving out of my mum's 3 years ago (and having no contact in about 2 years), I knew making bakups of my games was a good idea. Well, after 2 years of student living (read: poverty), I've finally saved up to get a reasonable second hand Wii in my local cash convertors. I knew some modding would need to be done, and having read things about both mod chips and soft mods, would I be right in thinking that soft mod IS the way to go? right?
Well anyway, I can't exactly afford to replace my new Wii so I need step by step simple instructions. I've read many tutorials on this site and other sites, but even here it seems that I need to bounce back and forth between pages for each steps like, "if you recieve this problem, follow another entire tutorial here [link], and then come back and continue here."
Which is daunting. I feel I may make a mistake and etc. I've read so much of the stuff though that I think I understand all the terminology, and I know not to delete any IOS under 200 so where do I start? :002:
Possibly important points; I have a black Wii, I have no idea what system menu version I am on or how to find out, I dont currently have an SD card (though will rush out to get one once someone convinces me I am in safe hands), and I don't have a GameCube controller (do I need one?)
I'd like someone of experience to be kind enough to help me with EXACTLY what to download and from where, and then exactly what to do with it, no ambiguities or copy paste jobs (or clean it up if it is a copy and paste job). I want a guide specific to ME. Remember, I only want to play backups, I may look into the dev scene at a later date to see what homebrewers are coming up with but for now, I have a whole bunch of unplayable classics sat next to my Wii, crying to be played through (i had about 80% saves on all of them, shame to start again but hey, mario galaxy is 53XX0RZ and I cannot WAIT to get onto number two, but not until numer one is complete :p )
I have no problems understanding the information on here, there just seems to be a lot of variation, and like I said before, I'm [Removed] pretty terrified of [seriously?] this up.
Thanks in advance for the help, very muchly :D
