    Thanks to everybody who has helped me and to the Forum

    It has taken me a while but I successfully soldered in my Wasabi chip.....and it works a dream! Loaded up SSBB no problem! So a Big thankyou to everybody who helped, and to the forum as a whole. I could have gone for the wii Clip but I had confidence in myself and wow.....back of the net! And Iīm so glad I didnt go for the Wiikey-Dremel option (cut pins).

    I know some of you have probably done hundreds of installs and think Iīm a right tit! But I bet you were buzzing when you soldered your first wired chip!!!

    I was quite nervous and had trouble getting the solder to stick at first, and was gobsmacked at how small the contact points were, but all came up smelling of roses! What a relief!

    Next stop is the neighbours Wii....9 WIRES!!! AARGH! Those IC pins look tricky! any tips appreciated.

    No doubt I will be asking for more advise very soon.

    THANKYOU:

    Itīs not easy especially when your hands are shaking.

    Once I sussed out how to do the tiny solder joints i became easier. I now have to practice in the IC pins. They look almost impossible. You must have to file your joints down or something. The pins you have to solder to are microscopic. No wonder people go for the clip, I canīt blame them.

    its not that hard The 52 some odd wire ps2 chips were hard , but not really hard as much as tedious when those got down to 15-19 wires or so it was so nice ! The wii chips are right next to the xbox and ps1 for easiest install. Though the d2ckeys were a pain to do at first, the numbers dropped to 15 and 9 quite fast. The d2c wiis can be done without ic wires technically, but d2pro has advised us that it is not stable to do it that way yet so for now ic is necessary but maybe over time it wont be needed at all.
