    Wii USB Loader

    Hello. I just got myself a Wii and I have installed the Homebrew Channel. What do I need to do now to have a functioning USB launcher? I have been looking at various tutorials which all differ and all seem dated. Can anyone point me to an up to date method? I read that the GX one is the best one going?

    Any help is appreciated

    Cheers,
    Chris.

    EDIT: Is it possible to load games from a network share? If so, I'd prefer that.

    Are you talking about Wii? Or Wii U? You posted in the Wii U section.

    Either way, we have guides for you. For Wii, see the Softmod Any Wii guide. For Wii U, see the vWii modding guide.

    Either way, see the FAT32 guide for formatting and installing content to the hard drive.

    I don't know if it's possible, but it would be way too slow to be of any use to load games off of network. You would want your system to be attached to the file storage device.

    Links to all guides mentioned are in my signature.

    Thanks for your reply! I am talking about the original Wii (black one), sorry I didn't notice this was the Wii U section.
    Every guide I have tried so far does not work. I will try this one (from your sig) next... http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    I will do a factory reset and start over.

    Thanks,
    Chris.

    Sorry, I have an original Wii and I didn't realize that this was the U section.
    I have successfully followed the guide in your sig and I can now launch the USB loader successfully! THANKS!

    I did have one issue though, Priiloader didn't work. When I launched it it said "priiloader not found aborting mission". Because of this I just skipped it but I would like to get it working if possible.

    Also, is there a way of accessing my USB HDD via SSH or something so I can drag games on to it without plugging it into my PC?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Never seen priiloader not install right before.

    I would go through chapter 2 again. Get a clean copy of ModPack.zip unzipped to your SD card along with the 4.1 menu of your region.

    Don't install the 30 wads again, but install the menu, then go back into HBC and run one of the priiloader installers and see if it works this time. If it does, then configure it as recommended in the guide plus any other tweaks you want to do.

    There is an app called WiiXplorer that has a built-in FTP server. Once configured to your liking and turned on, you can use the FTP client software of your choice to upload content to the SD card or USB drive.

    It's slow, but it works.

    Doing chapter 2 again fixed my problem. I have no idea what went wrong the first time. All of the checks passed with no errors.

    I will try WiiXplorer and see if it's what I'm after.

    Thanks,
    Chris.

    Hello again. I have my Wii games loading through USB loader GX without any problems, but how do I load Gamecube games in it?
    Can I put Wii and Gamecube images on the same drive? How do I need to format the drive?
    At the moment I use the WBFS manager to put Wii images on the drive.

    Any help is apreciated.

    Chris.

    Yes you can use the same drive to load both Wii and GameCube games, but it has to be FAT32 formatted with 32k clusters in order for it to work.

    There are three methods: Dios Mios and Devolution we have guides on, and Nintendont, which is still too new for us to recommend yet.

    I prefer Dios Mios, myself, but I know most of the rest of the staff likes Devolution.

    See the FAT32, Dios Mios, and Devolution guides linked in my signature for more information on how to get all that to work, including loading your Wii games onto a FAT32 partition.

    Ok thanks. I am transferring my Wii games from my PC now using Wii Game manager. So I'll see what happens.
    Is there a similar software utility that can transfer GameCube ISO's and automatically name them and put them in a folder as described in the devolution tutorial?

    Cheers,
    Chris.
