    Installing WAD Games

    Please excuse me if I use the incorrect terms.

    I softmodded my wii and all is running perfect and without any trouble thanks to the guide here.

    I got a folder from a friend with all the old classic Nintendo games all as .wad files. I used Free the Wads to ensure the wads are region free (though I thought the softmod would make the wii region free). I installed some of the wads with Modmii's wad manager and went all fine. When trying to boot a game from the SD card, I get an error that "this channel can't be used" when the wad is on the wii console itself I just get a blank screen.

    I read somewhere that I need to install IOS60Patched.wad?? But together with that came a few articles where people bricked their wii because of installing this patched ios.

    Please can somebody give some advice on how to get these games to work?

    I honestly have never used the Shop Channel as I do not have fixed internet at home...

    I looked at the folder with the files I was given and they are all in a folder called Virtual Console, not sure if this makes any difference.

    Not sure if there is a different way I need to load them or if I perhaps need to install something else besides the standard soft Mod

    Please any help here would do.

    The files I tried to install was the original Bomberman and Adventure Islander.

    My syscheck for what it's worth.....
