    WiiVC/WiiWare Questions

    I have my Wii softmodded, I'm using a 2TB (1.81 TB actually) HDD on my wii and my backups work fine using Wii Backup Manager. I just want to know if I can put Virtual Console games onto it and WiiWare also, I'm getting mixed answers, and if it is possible can someone point me to an up to date guide? Thanks, Kevin.

    Not sure if Wiiware is considered to be a form of piracy.

    In relation to piracy, im pretty sure it's ok to play wiiware or virtual console games if you own them already.

    Both of these types of games can be downloaded in .wad format. Use a wad installer (such as multi mod manager) to install them.

    Hope this helped!

    Now if you want to play your Wiiware/VC off the hard drive, you'll have to use NAND emulation with a homebrew app that supports playing of those games. I suggest Mighty Channels. It's the easiest to set up, and if you don't like it you can search into other alternatives like Wiiflow or SNEEK.

    The only downside to this is that some WiiWare games don't work. However, with future updates to the cIOS, it is possible that 100% of them will work.
    But, all VC games work.

    TheInfamousTheft, I was not aware of this method of playing wiiware games.

    Have you heard of using the wad files? Because it's a common method of installing wiiware and VC games (channels) to your home screen.

    To use wad files:

    1. Make sure that you own the game first. If not, you are doing something illegal and are on your own.

    2. Download the game's .wad file (google can help here )

    3. Use a wad installer such as multi mod manager to install the wad files.

    4. Your game is now installed! Start it by selecting it's channel in the wii menu.

    Ideally, this is the way to do it if you don't have many WiiWare/VC games. However, once you start running out of space on your Wii's internal storage (or channel room) it starts being a pain in the ass. Of course, you have another option.

    That is to do a move/transfer to your SD card. That works well but, when you load a game using the SD card menu it has to load into your Wii's internal NAND from your SD card. Now this takes a little time, but not too long. And that SD game is stored on the Wii's NAND until you decide to play a different game that's on your SD. Then it erases the previous game and puts the new game on the NAND, which takes time. This gets annoying if you're person who plays a variety of games each day.

    Along with that, you have to keep around 300 to 400 blocks free on your Wii's storage so you can play games off your SD card or else you get an error.

    With NAND emulation, it eliminates that.
