    Loading retail Wii DVDs from HBC

    Hi everyone, the solution to my query might be obvious and I might be dumb, but how the heck do you load a normal/genuine/retail Wii DVD game from HBC?
    Only solutions I found up to now is:
    1 - Return to Wii menu (duh!)
    2 - Install TinyLoad and launch my DVD from there.

    Is there any (better) solution to do this?
    Thanks!

    I guess you could always try Neogamma R9 Beta 56, not sure exactly what you're asking though, a disc launcher to use your retail discs ?

    LibWiiGameLoad is an HBC disc launcher. You can grab it from the HBB or from here.

    Exactly: I setup the Wii to boot into HBC as I have a couple of emulators and WiiMC there. Personally, that's all I use as I'm not fond of playing games with the blooming remotes and WiiFit.
    However, the missus exclusively plays Wii games on it, so when booting HBC, she's at lost and needs a simple way to boot her games (all retail copies).

    Thanks! That's exactly the kind of thing I need, but this demo has some sort of text menu, making it worse than TinyLoad. But you have the right idea, so thanks anyway

    I'm not sure why this would be a problem. I have one of the first Wii's that came out, and my retail DVDs still show up in the top left corner(game channel?). Unless something has changed. The only time I ever load a game that way though is if a friend brings a game over. If they are my disks I usually just install them to HD with wiiflow....

    I think he's looking for something that can run right out of the Homebrew Channel.

    That's the impression I got, as well (which is what LibWiiGameLoad will do).

    That's right, all the stuff I ever need, I launch it through the Homebrew Channel. The only time I need the stock Wii Menu is when I need to load a disc, and only the wife does so (Wii Fit, etc). So having the Wii booting straight into HBC is great for me, but didn't make the wife too happy.
    In the meantime, I just reverted using TinyLoad in HBC, and arrange my icons so that TinyLoad is in the top left corner to make it more intuitive for the missus.

    Hmm. I thought it booted right to the game. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. I'll get back to you.
