    how do I play downloaded homebrew games

    I know this may sound like a dumb question, but I have downloaded a few games using the Homebrew Browser. How do I find/play them? They don't show up in USB loader CFG, in the Homebrew Channel or on the Wii home page. Thanks in advance :-)

    Games installed from HBB should be playable from HBC.

    Make sure that you are reading content from SD card, not USB in HBC to find them, since I don't think you can pick where the files get installed.

    I don't see anything in HBC. How do I tell HBC to use SD card?

    Press "1" in HBC to open the options. The top one is the SD or USB choice.

    Check that your SD card isn't locked to writes. Check that you have room on the card for more content.

    Check your sd:/apps directory to see if anything was added to it recently.

    If SD card was selected initially, try changing it to USB to see if HBB somehow installed it there.

    Yep... selecting USB showed the games. Hmmm... So do I need to copy the SD apps over to the USB; copy the USB games to the SD; or leave things alone and just select between SD and USB depending on if I want games or apps? Thanks..

    You can move them around if you want. But I would just leave them be and play them where they are.
