    Myth's and Legends

    ~_~ yeah i know, this topic is for all those amazingly odd/silly posts/idea's/topics that get started because people think they can pull it off or use it...

    these are in no real order, just gonna list them as they come...

    people search before posting
    myth: all of the Dupe topics is a clear indicator that people dont

    Gamma is on par with a modchip
    myth: gamma is no where near a modchip, if you want to see why read my gamma vs modchip topic

    SD card loading, from system menu
    myth: till nintendo releases it, it cant be done, dont ask, dont expect, dont tell us how we should have it, you want it, you code it

    Mario kart has 3.2
    myth: no game is proven to have 3.2, ESP mario kart! or any of the other mario games

    + R < - R due to laser life
    legend: its unknown what the real difference is, and how much worse if any +R is, but -R works more than + so its enough of a reason to just use it

    do _____ DVD's WORK?
    myth: its more of a Case by case thing, some wiis wont read some media's, in the end ALL will work, but it will affect your wiis life

    Better media, Better experience
    myth: people say its the best, but using 19 different Media's to play galaxy, the game worked perfect with all games

    Verbatim is the best for your wii
    legend: the actual affect difference if any, has yet to be shown, as far as anyone is concern its nonexistant

    ___ chip is best
    myth: no chip is the "best" they do have special features, but most of which are useless, all chips play the same ammount of out of region, and load backups =\ the same

    wiiware games can load from anything
    myth: currently wiiware games can only be loaded from menu, and at best most suck, so dont expect a SUPER DVD

    3.4's auto update is SCARY!
    myth: no firmware has came out after the "can force updates/auto update" since nothing has happened post, the actual fact of if they can or cant, has yet to be proven, so till then its nothing but words

    ____ firmware bricked my wii!
    myth: nothing outside of region, will ever brick your wii

    the staff here, are godly
    Legend: people constantly ask us, if ___ will be a problem, or will anything be a final Fix, like we have the power to see the future of the wii, WE ARE JUST NORMAL PEOPLE, none of us know anything more than you do

    Admiral Victorinox knows everything
    myth: i know what i have a intrest in, and commonly asked questions, i know nothing about the loader, and i dont care to learn anything about the loader!

    Homebrew aka softmod, is the same as gamma
    myth: homebrew was made to make the most of your wii, none of the original programs EVEN wad manager *yes it was a original* were ment for piracy, they are completely different, and should never be considered the same!

    gecko OS, can use a code to change game languages
    myth: unless the game lets you, or its coded in *thats like 2% MAX* you cant change it unless its PAL/Muli __

    homebrew cant be installed past ___
    myth: to date all firmwares can install homebrew channel

    these are some very basic myths/legends people feel free to add on, these are the main ones that i remember from all my posts, i hope to get this big, because i dont like hearing these rumors

    hehe how about the smoking environment destroying your Wii?
    With headlines like : Second Hand Smoke May Be Harmful to Your Wii!!!
    Tobacco smoke makes Super Smash Bros Brawl unplayable!!!

    I don't hear often about smoke harming electronic equipment...then why only the Wii?

    mmmmmmmmmmm
    A really grown up comment, and when you have grown up - have seen close friends and relatives suffer this awful fate, whether or not it is smoking related, you would not wish it on your worse enemy.
    My mum - who died from a tumour last year always said
    " If you don't have anything good to say.......don't say it !" but her favourite and now mine, was
    " It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, rather than open it & prove them right "

    does using the gamma loader to load dvd-r backups harm the wii's hardware? if so, why/how exactly?

    what about playing dvd-r backups with a modchip? is that harmful to the hardware?

    Please don't quote me if your are going to use to for hatred. I do not understand why people on the internet feel the need to be idiotic. Sorry for everyone's lost due to cancer. My fiance's family has already lost a great amount of family members due to breast cancer and I myself lost Great Grandparents to cancer.

    Using DVDs with the Wii are assumed to harm the Wii's laser, but nothing has been proven yet. It is common suspicion that it does, and formed a rumor that is circulating. I wouldn't be surprised if it does, since Nintendo uses specially modified DVDs (DVD and WiiDisc are not the same) for the Wii.
    The Gamma loader can be profoundly dangerous if used incorrectly
    A modchip (Wiikey2 recommended) is much safer and easier to use.

    Chances of harming any device's hardware with software are so small, they're nearly neglible, unless, of course, it has a self destruct mechanism
    However, malware could destroy unrecoverable data from device, such as a PSP's IDstorage, for example.
