    what do I need?

    Ok I have my Wii and it is connected to the internet. What exactly do I need now to be able to download and play free games. Can someone please tell me what I need for a soft mod, or what a soft mod is? Sorry I am totally new and just want the easiest way to play free games. Thanks for your anticpated help.

    I think this introductory tutorial will help you sort through the various terms used and the options made available through making software-based changes (softmod) to your Wii. http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-wii-faq.html

    Compared with a hard or chip mod, not modding. A chipmod connects a chip, of course, to your Wii drive and allows the Wii to play backup game discs. Look on the Forums page and you will see a Forum for chipmods.

    I think you need to do some reading about what a Softmod is. In general, a soft mod as opposed to a .... hard mod (?) is the use of software to mod the wii instead of a mod Chip. You get the software installed through various exploits found in games or the Wii software itself (Twilight Hack, Banner Bomb, Smash Stack) I can say from my experience that a softmod will let you do what you are asking.

    a soft mod is the best, if you are the risky and broke guy like me... it will make your backups work, even from an external HDD... and many many more...
