    A few questions after getting wii modded

    whats going on everyone. i see there a lot of wii online questions and i have a few of my own. I have a modded wii that my cousin gave me a little while back. I was able to play all copy games until punch out came out. I then had my friend softmod my wii which allowed me to play all kind of copied games again.
    my question is just like everyone else about playing online. I'm nervous and i wanted to know which way should i go about playing copied games online? Should i launch them thru disc ch or should i launch them in the wii backup launcher? My other question is i just received the naruto clash of the ninjas 3 and i see that it has a online option, but its telling me that i have to enable the wfc to play. is it safe to enable the wfc on a modded/softmodded? Also I wanted to know if it is possible for me to use the weather ch since my wii has been modded? can i use the wii shop ch, things of that nature. thanks in advance for all of the answers.

    I Always go online through what ever means I decide to start the game, WC24 is safe becasue the Wii never actually installs any firmware while its in that mode, its only optional when you get the message to upgrade.
    The only consoles that really go wrong online and get banned are 360's I even go online with the DS and DSI.
    I'm now into retro games console hacking and development.
    Currently working on Nintendo 64 if you want to help PM me.

    i see what you are asking. more or less by interacting with nintendo stuff online can they detect the mods? who knows maybe they can? i use preloader to keep the disks from running updates and use parental controls to keep ppl in the house from updating. we use the online browser and weather channel all the time but have no need for the shop channel.i usually use neogamma to launch games as i can set the region force to wii and save it and be able to play any region without setting something. i do all this and haven't had a problem. is this what you are asking?

    thanks for the quick replay as well. like i stated b4 my friend did the softmod for me. i also have a modchip in there but i dont know which one it is since the wii was given to me. i do recall my friend installing a pre-loader on the wii but i'm not sure of the options. well you answered the question that i had about the weather ch. thanks for that. i will hit the thank you button for that. as far as the disc running updates i haven't come across any of those yet. is it because i haven't tried to sign online yet. i use the brickblocker on my games from other regions and i use the region free option on pal games as well. i'm running the 3.2 on ntsc wii.

    if they needed to run updates they would have prompted you such before not becuase of not being on the internet. you won't be able to use prloader on 3.2 i don't believe. it has the option to block the disk updates but it hasn't been an issue for you yet anyway. we have played a couple of games online as well and my son makes his little miis on the mmichannel and sends them to ppl so i think you'll be fine lol

    ok what do you use to boot the game disc ch or your backup launcher. i held the reset button on my wii and the preloaded came up. i have version 0.29
    the options are followed below

    shutdown to =off
    stop disc =off
    show beta updates =off
    skip disc update check=enabled
    region free wii games=enabled

    so all i need to know is do i boot thru the disc ch or my wii backup launcher ch and you said i should be good when i turn on my wfc24

    i use backup launcher and neogamma but mostly neogamma and the settings in your preloader are what probably has been working for you. yea the wiiconnect is ok i enabled parental control so i have to enter a code to allow updates and configuration changes in the wii settings. you may wanna do that to

    ok so i will use my backup laucnher and i will enable my wfc24 to try out the naruto game. so the parental control options should be in my wii settings i assume. thanks again for all of your help.
