Post-Starfall/Gamma install questions
I recently installed these on my Wii (thanks to the wonderful FAQ on this site). My question is regarding playing normal retail games from here on out.
When I boot a regular retail game, should I be booting them normally, as I would without the mod, or do I need to do something different? I installed all of the options that Starfall includes. Even though I have Starfall installed, I'm not really certain how it works. Does Starfall automatically block firmware updates, etc.? Are there any issues I could have playing regular retail games in the future now that I have Starfall installed? I heard about other programs that are supposed to block updates, and prevent Wii's from bricking, and I was wondering if I should get any other programs that were not included in the download pack that was in the link on the FAQ, or if Starfall takes care of everything.
You run origianl games like you always have, nothing changes here.
As far as starfall is concerened. I suggest you don't turn all the options on. I suggest you leave the health menu option alone, The only 3 things I use are the disc updates, rescue menu with gamecube y button. If you want to turn off the music in the menu thats up to you, but I suggest you leave the health menu option alone as if you ever need to you can boot into maintence mode with the health screen. This is helpful if you have a semi brick issue. By holding down + and - at the health menu screen then press A, it will boot into hte maintence mode. In this mode you can still play all games and do a few other things as well.
I'm going to be honest, I just installed everything without paying attention to what each option said very much.
So you are saying that one of the options disables the health menu option, correct? I assume that there is a reason for that, does anyone happen to know what that is? I just was wondering why someone would want to disable that feature. It does sound like it makes more sense not to.
The only reason for the disable the health screen warning is to have it boot into the menu faster and wihtout any buttons. Some people like it that way, just like turning off the menu background music, there is no reason for it, some people just hate the music. I hope this helps.
