virtual console help
I have nes wads and other wads and having a hard time installing them and working. I have softmodded my wii by using the tutorial here for 3.2 -4.1 . I have all the required IOS that i think i need. I am on version 4.1 . I am using sandisk 2 gig card. I tried to install triiforce to run the VC and other games. I am just wanting like super mario bro's and all the old school games to be on the home screen. I downloaded the wads from link on triiforce , http://www.mediafire.com/syst3merror
if anyone can help me out . I have all 3 of the nes mario bro's and they all do not play. They go to a green screen and that is it. Any help will be appreciated. sorry for such a newbie questions. I followed this tut to the T
uh u know u can play VC/WIIware games without triiforce and from SD on 4.1?
Just instal ur game with wad manager and move ur channel to SD in ur data managent and run the game through WII SD Card Menu.
also What IOS did u install 53,55,56?
No i did not know you could do that ?
on the wii i mentioned i installed
Can you do that on 4.2 menu also ? I have to read and figure out how to move the channel to SD card.
Only site donators may send a PM to WiiHacks Staff
gonna have to try that.kinda silly to keep going through homebrew channel to get to all my emulators when i could just have them there in the system menu

!!Make sure u deleated ur Boot.elf and private folder so the HackMII installer does NOT run when u go to wii channels!!
Then just press the little SD card on ur wii menu(left bottom corrner) and load game:video showing u how to load

Also make sure u have like 300(wii ware are ussualy that, VC games like mario need like 50) free blocks left on ur wii cuz this function temporarly moves the game to wii to play and then deletes it after.

great got it working . I did something a tad easier ..i just put all the wads on my sd card and then installed using wad manager and just pointed to SD card and it put it on the channel. woohoo ..thanks ..now they are all on the first screen.
This is very true, but let it be known that by installing VC/WiiWare games to your SD card and then loading them, it writes the game temporarily to the NAND. When the game is closed it erases the temp files from the NAND. Repeated reading and writing to your NAND can detrimentally effect your NAND by creating bad blocks [you can have up to 80 bad blocks, anymore can lead to problems]. Thats why TriForce is great, no NAND reading and writing to the NAND on the Wii.

Also out of curiousity ..if you buy them from the wii shop they are installed the same way correct ? I would assume so ... but please correct me if i am wrong.
Well the Wii Shop automatically installs them to the system [like an auto wad manager so to speak].
