    Wiiware launcher...from SD card.

    I'm looking for a program like this and I'm not sure if there is already one available.

    I'm wanting to run any VC/WiiWare games off of my SD card. Some games run fine after moving them to the channel to the SD card and deleting the original installed channel(Excitedbike:WW, Arkanoid)....many, like gradius rebirth or Dr. Mario online say "failed to launch" and will not work.

    Is there a program that will boot and WiiWare off of a usb or SD card...and is it available as a .wad for the main wii screen(like the homebrew channel)



    ***Just to be clear, I'm not looking for a wad installer...I can install the wad to my wii just fine...I'm looking for a way to launch the bare .wad(wiiware) or installed VC title.

    Yes, there is a program called Triiforce which emulates the internal NAND memory on an sd card and allows you to launch Wiiware content. Sinyk wrote up an article here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-sd-card.html

    At what point does it freeze, when you're trying to launch? Perhaps an incompatibility with the sd card?

    I used that guide and it went smooth, and rather quick too.
