playing backup games-getting started-USBLoader GX
so my Wii has the homebrew channel currently installed, currently at 4.3
With Xmas coming up, I am looking at buying my child some new games. Of course, I am interested in making backups of these and some of the others I currently own.
So I started searching around to see what all would be involved in doing so.
It seems if you want to make a backup you need a special drive for the PC, so that's out, or, and I need clarification on this, it can done with a Wii. correct?
Another option I was thinking about was just D/L the ISO created by someone else and using it but....... don't know about that. I imagine there are pros and cons to that.....
What I want to do is play my backups from a USB Drive, and from what I've read I need a few programs to do so. One is USBLoader-GX.
Using this guide:
Link supplied by WiiHacks thread.
Downloads - usbloader-gui - USB Loader GX: GUI for Waninkoko´s USB Loader (based on libwiigui) - Google Project Hosting
I'm stumped because I expected to see one D/L. Obviously I would D/L the latest version but.....how do I know which one i will need?
My plan is to install this so it is a "channel" on my Wii, if that is correct.
The other program is WBFS Manager.
Where can WBFS Manager be found or is that an incorrect question to ask here. Several guides reference sites that are gone or the links are removed..
My plan is to use a USB drive for backups only, nothing else will be stored on it.
More and more reading....
Think I'll start here:
It's already got the HBC so I'll start from Chapter 2 and see how that goes.
