Thread: make channels point to apps on sd card?

  1. #1

    Question make channels point to apps on sd card?

    well this has been a weekend of many "firsts" for me, here in the wii hacking scene.

    here's what im wondering now.. i have seen videos and tuts on how to make customized wii channels. seems pretty cool. is it possible to make a wii channel "point" to an app/emulator/game that is stored and runs from a memory card? if so, how?

    thanks.

    Yes it possible and there are examples of them already in existence. They are called forwarder channels.

    You can create your own but beware of banner bricks as a result of malformed banners. Make sure you have preloader installed.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    thanks for the tips. i just installed preloader 0.29. seems to have worked fine. my wii boots to it.
    so now i will figure out this forwarder channel thing (hopefully). ive seen youtube vids where people had channels for emulators and homebrew apps and games. i like the way that looks. id like to be able to just click on a channel and launch the app from the sd card that way.
