    Wad Games? (Not asking for links)

    Hello,

    I bought my wii two years ago and I modded it and everything. But, do to some commitments I was never able to fully use my wii. Now that I have free time I took out my wii and I inserted my modded usb stick.

    But, Voila, I have forgotten everything about it.

    I was just opening every app on my wii and in the homebrew channel I found this software Wad Manager. I have no idea what it is but on little bit of googling I came to know that it is for playing wad games. As far as I remember, wad are small games. I dont remember whehter they are free or paid?

    So I just want to ask whether Wad games are free or paid? That's it. I am not asking any links. I hope am not breaking any rules




    Thanks to PEIRE for the awesome signature

    It depends on who makes the WAD games. If it is made by a Homebrew developer than chances are it's a free game, but if it's made by say, Nintendo or Sega for example, then it would be a paid app you should get via the Shop Channel. Obtaining a paid app for free would constitute piracy.

    WADs are components to be installed. The modding process to install cIOSs, IOSs, and channels are WAD files that the WAD manager "installs".

    Any games that are installed from a WAD are usually pirated WiiWare/Virtual Console games that should be bought from Wii Shop Channel, though some "freeware/homebrew" apps may be distributed this way, maybe. You would usually just get the "boot.dol" file and launch those from HBC.
