thanks for the quick reply
if its just the saved game file needed for yu gi oh is it possible to copy the saved game file onto another wii then delete it then run the hack or do u have to play the game on the wii your softmoding
of course it has to be the wii you want to softmod where you run the game.
initially to create a savefile which youw ill delete, and after placing the hacked savefile (no other will work) in the wii and running the game again.
you will need the game if that is your question
Hi. Thanks for the fantastic guide. I know that to downgrade from 4.3e to 4.1e is an optional part of the process but could you explain what exactly the advantages are of doing this? I am new to all this so I apologise if this has been asked before or is obvious but I would like to end up having a game selector like wiiflow running and to be able to easily play wii and gamecube games from any region from a USB hard drive.
Also I have a fat32 hitachi g-drive that is powered by the USB lead that would be plugged into the wii. Can the wii provide enough power to do this or will I fry it?
Thanks for your time, andy
The purpose or benefit of a 4.3-to-4.1 downgrade would be only if you also had a modchip installed (hardmods were locked out of playing out of region games). You won't be able to play Game Cube games from USB HD, that's pretty much limited to a WODE or perhaps Sundriver hardware.
As far as USB HDs go, a 2.5" IDE drive can work on the Wii's power; there is a compatibility list on this site to see if your drive is listed or not (by no means is it complete), might want to check.
You really ought to post a quick "hello" in the Introduction section of the site, something we encourage first-timers. You'll get valuable links to aid in navigating our site.
Thanks v. Much for the reply. Could you tell me the way to play any region gamecube backups on my pal softmodded wii?
Thanks again, andy
here. Any further inquiries go within that thread, as this one's primary purpose is to successfully softmod your Wii.
Thanks - how do I tell if my wii has the older drive or not?
