Basic question re: Starfall and other apps
I just did my first wii softmod and it went fine. I downgraded to 3.2U and have installed Starfall. Does Starfall run off the Wii memory or the SD card? I want to know if I need the SD card in to get the protection that it offers. Also, is it correct that I can use PAL games as long as I have Starfall installed? Thanks.
If Starfall has already been installed on your system you can delete it off your sd card.
I don't know about playing other regions game but I think you have to run something called regionfrii everytime you play some other region, don't count one me though because I dont play other region games.
So, I am just learning about the Wii (I am an Xbox guy). Do some apps run right off the Wii and othes off the SD card?
well as for your first question about region of games...im asuming ur using wii gator 0.3 gamma to launch the backups and as for my experience so far about half my backups are pal region and i have ntsc system most worked without doing anything in the loader but i did have acouple that required me to force ntsc in the loader options so they should be fine as long as you force ntsc everytime on them....
