    Your old nand backup should be fine, just make sure you keep a real backup of it, and not mess with your only copy of it. You should make another one anyway though. I have three, the one when i was first able to make it, another one when i thought i had everything exactly as i wanted it, and another again after i installed more stuff and changed things. Maybe im being a little too thorough, but i like having them just in case.
    when does nand changfe? id like to know when i can backup when i make major changes

    It is like a restore point in windows. You are gonna want to keep a nand backup that is fairly current and working well. When you go to try something new and risky you'll be able to restore to the most current system configuration, instead of back to a time when you still didn't have thing quite setup the way you wanted it yet.

    ic. so if i have a very recent nand, chances are i cant revirginize my wii with that nand?

    also, anyone actually do the triiforce mod? how long did it take?

    Excellent guide.

    However, there is one big fat fail in this guide that most guide writers on this site all make.

    I'm talking about USB ONLY installation steps - you don't bother to mention that you need a FAT32 partition until halfway through the installation guide, and after you have requested the user download a bunch of utilities.

    Great, now I have to delete the 50 games on my hard drive to reformat and partition it properly. Would have been nice to know before I downloaded everything and made a useless NAND because I can't do the install now. As I said, the accuracy and clarity of the content is excellent, but failing to mention all of the pre-reqs is something that should be fixed.

    I dont understand why people start following a guide blindly, before reading through the whole thing.

    Install Downloadable Content (DLC) Wads

    .

    Blu3Drag0n23 has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Triiforce MRC User Guide - How to Load Wii Ware from a USB Drive or SD Card - in the ►RECOMMENDED FAQ's, GUIDES & TUTORIALS ONLY ◄ forum of Wiihacks - Nintendo Wii Hacks Community.

    This thread is located at:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...-new-post.html

    Here is the message that has just been posted:
    ***************

    Dose anybody know how to get download content =dlc to work with this?




    I do. What program are you using to install your WADs to your (emulated) NAND? I use ShowMiiWads. It's really easy to use but Sinyk left out a couple of small but critical details from his guide that I will fill in for him.

    Did you know you can extract the entire folder contents to NAND? So if you want to get FFIV - The After Years and the DLC to work, you can store the main game and its DLC in one folder. Go to "Show Me Wads" under the "View" menu. Right click on the folder (yes, this works) you want to install and choose "Extract to NAND". If you want to do a batch install, highlight all the games (wads & folders) in the list. That way you won't have to install each game one by one.

    Find your NAND folder and open it. Select everything in that folder and copy all of that into the root of either your USB HDD or your SD card. DON'T leave your contents in the NAND folder and copy that to the root of your device. Otherwise, Triiforce will load and will boot you back into the main menu of your Wii.

    You MUST do this everytime you add a game to your collection or your new game won't show...doesn't matter if it's a DLC or the main game itself. If you don't want to always have to copy and paste those folders, you can set your NAND backup directory to the root of your device. Mind you, you many lose your game saves so a backup is ALWAYS recommended.

    Does anyone have a good suggestion for how much space I should allot for my Triiforce partition? When applying a wad to my nand will it take up the same space as the wad itself?

    Thanks.

    Also...

    This is nonsense. Not to be picky, but I'm a technical writer which basically means I write guides for a paycheck. Even when you are writing a guide that engineers are going to read, you have to ASSUME that they are not going to read the whole thing.

    Otherwise, why would you even have a section that details what you need to have before starting the installation?

    No one here is making money by writing guides but this is still relevant. I want to encourage people to practice writing up proper pre-reqs for the benefit of others.

    Because:
    1) There's a lot of info to process and can be overwhelming, esp. to the NOOB's and
    2) People rely on the guide to be step-by-step.

    At least a step-by-step guide provides a universal understanding. A guide written out of sequence doesn't guarantee that EVEN the writer himself will be able to follow his own notes if needed to be referred to much later. The writer will forget too. I can't emphasize how important it is to be organized.
