    Question (New guy) Hey!!A few questions was told to go here first!

    Hi all, new to the community and to the Wii in general. I bought a Wii last night and typically I'm very good at things like this. I hacked the wii (black 4.3u), loaded everything from a tutorial and such. I now have a few games on my hard drive which have worked and run from using the USB loader which loads wiiflow, but I wanted to create wiiflow into it's own channel and I just can't seem to get it right. Any help would be appreciated. As well i'll throw out two other questions.

    1. How do I get the game's covers/boxcovers to show? I tried making the folders in the wiiflow folder on my hard-drive, downloaded the png files but they still don't show.

    2. How do I run Nes/Snes/Gensis games? A bit confused on how to load them up, or where to put the emulator's or games... on the hard drive or the sd card...

    Sorry again I'm very new to this so any help at all is more then appreciated.

    and welcome to

    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!

    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the

    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's

    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section

    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.

    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.

    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.

    What you will need to know -

    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD

    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
