    [SOLVED]Mario Kart Wii compatible on Softmodded 4.2 Wii?

    Is Mario Kart Wii compatible with softmodded Wii on 4.2 without PriiLoader?
    Because I have a friend who is afraid of bricking his Wii if he tries to play it.

    Or must HBC be uninstalled first?

    EDIT: He can play the game even without PriiLoader.
    So his problem is solved.

    Almost any game is "compatible" on a softmoded Wii. I assuming he is worried about updating from the disk so why not just install Priiloader and block disk and online updates? That is highly recommended. Just uninstalling HBC will not unsoftmod his Wii.

    Actually, He does'nt have a SD Card and he really wants to play that game now...
    So will it work correctly without PriiLoader?

    You should have at least one SD card (preferrably 1-2 GB) dedicated to homebrew. Go to Walmart or just about any place that sells video games and pick up a 2GB Nintendo SD card for about $10.

    Is the game disc trying to update his Wii? If it is, tell him not to update. Rip the game to a hard drive or thumb drive and play through usb loading. Priiloader is vital, in my opinion...

    Go buy one.... If he doesn't install Priiloader then he is playing with fire. Eventually he will run into problems. Tell him to proceed at his own risk if he doesn't want to buy or borrow an SD card to get Priiloader installed.

    To play the game:
    Get a sd card install priiloader and block disc/online updates
    OR
    Load from hdd which bypasses the update

    If he takes the update it will kill his softmod and might even cause more damage... NOT RECOMMENDED!
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one persons opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Lets get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... Its still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with speed reading...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. Im only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know its the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bullys/and plain jack asss... We dont like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so dont do it.

    Piracy This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We dont want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big N (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I dont care what you do... I dont care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. Its your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I wont allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Dont like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We dont support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Dont ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say this is wiihacks wtf? or "thats the point in hacking a Wii... No it is not.. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they dont get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= So you Think Youre a Hacker]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are Modders at best... most users arent even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line Not sit here claiming hes one arguing about rules and why he needed help... Im not saying we dont have members that are real hackers but face it... You arent one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin youre hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldnt need our help and wouldnt need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you cant hack a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more Leave the hacking to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= Need Help?] Thats why youre here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. Thats why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help but... We dont always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or cant use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you cant use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? Cmon man step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it

    Dont be lazy... Help us, help you... If youre really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as its within the lines of the rules... The grey area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and dont see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We arent getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Dont give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we wont...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace Im out![/SPOILER]

    Lol, I think it's better to go buy an SD card now (like he should have to begin with, especially for the mandatory NAND backup) than to go buy a new Wii later. I'm pretty sure there is a price difference...

    Btw, I'm not disagreeing with you Krafter.

    nevermind the priiloader issue (which he NEEDS!!!). put the game in the wii, and as long as it does not show update on the disc channel, he will be ok...
