    playing burnt games from HBC

    i have done a lot of reading so far, and i would like to softmod my wii but i don't want to f it up. forgive me if i'm repeating another thread but i haven't seen anything about it yet. i just want to make sure i understand how to play burnt games. if i copy a game and burn onto dvd, do you go through the HBC to actually play the game? if so how is it done?

    is there anyway someone can post or point to a post with pics of the HBC menu/screen?

    you can use homebrew channel to load apps on an sd card that will load the disks or install channels to do this as well. in fact the first part of the tutorial accomplishes installing backup launcher channel. you have to go through the whole modification for any of it to actually work though as this installs and modifies the system files for this

    nothing wrong with that. my son is high functioning autism and he found out softmodding could be done and there was no way in hell i wanted to try to do something like that and mess up his wii. but he kept bugging me about it and i'm glad he did cause it wasn't bad at all to do
