just joined, a bit about me
Hi WiiHacks folks,
Okay, so I'm suppose to share about myself? Well, I'm not to forum savvy, save for the unicyclist.com forums. But I hope to learn more about how to get the most out of using my hacked wii, which I did by following a tut somewhere on the web, probably from here.
I originally hacked so I could play my NES & SNES roms on TV instead of the computer. Love those old games! Seriously, why pay for a game (again) you purchased before in the past?! Nintendo is legendary, but they need to get with the times and support user-generated content alongside new content they develop.
So about me...I'm 28, married, no kids, 2 cats, army veteran, filmmaker, and unicyclist. I have been playing NES since I was a kid. My systems growing up were NES, SNES, and PS1 and XBOX (during my army days). Forgive me but I never got into 64 or Gamecube, but I do want to get Zelda Ocarina of Time. Right now I own just Wii and a 360. I'm not as much as a gamer as I once was, but I still like to chill out in front of the tube and play old games for nostalgia and new games for fun. I'm very behind, but the current titles I am playing are Twilight Princess & Donkey Kong for Wii. I really prefer platforms and FPS such as Mario & Halo (#2 my fav!).
I mainly use my Wii for Netflix, though, being the filmmaker I am. I love movies! Check out more about me at my website www.JosephNeigh.com
So as of last night, I figured out (thanks to this forum) how to update Wii Shop Channel so I can finally get the Netflix channel (was using the disk before). I have version 4.1U. I see there are many other hacked versions out there...am I at a "good one" to have or should I change it up or down??
So I look forward to learning more and gaining confidence in my knowledge of using WiiHacks to get the most out of my Wii. Right now I would like to figure out how to play DVDs so I can take out the DVD player. Is there a post that explains in laymans terms what each Homebrew App/program is/does? Like the USB loader VS loadme etc...I need a guide because all I know and use is the HBC :)
Thanks for putting up with my noobiness!
