    no emergency, just rantings

    hello,

    i am new to wii, and to this site. the other day i thought, hey maybe i can hack this thing. i am not skilled at these sort of things but i am not an idiot either.
    so i google it and get started using info i am finding from different sites. i do regret that, if i could do it over, i would have just used this forum, which is very informative and well organized.

    long story shorter.. i did accomplish my main objective. i can load backups via disc or usb. out of about 30 that i downloaded, they all work, even the new mario (except 1..). the 4gig flash drive is my biggest irritation at this point, and i have already order a wd 640 external HDD to replace it.

    who would've thought it was more fun to hack it than play the games??

    so i should be happy, and i guess i am, but its the little things that bug me..

    -like i can't remember all the steps i took and in whatever order i took them.
    -scrabble is the only title i cannot load.. why??
    -why can i use uloader 3.2 and neogamma R8 beta 7, but not usb loader GX?
    -i can't get a wiiware wad, lost winds.. to play. i install it and it shows up as a channel but when i go to play it it will go to its title screen and then it says i can't use the channel

    i'm sure i have a few other questions.. i've done alot of reading in the last 24 hours and the info is starting to mesh together.

    anyway so much for a long story short haha. anyone's 2 cents is welcome. i do have more searching and reading to do though. thx for this great forum, sry for the long post, thx to those who read it, it was the scrabble that pushed me over the edge..

    scrabble could be a bad iso,lost winds is probably wrong region ( use freethewads) and some loaders do not work for everyone

    there is also a list in the guides section that tells if specific ios files are needed for certain wii games. you could look and see if your game is there and the ios you would need, plus it's good to be aware that these kinds of guides are there. one thing i like about this place, these folks have really tried to be thorough

    yes there is so much information, it is a little confusing, mainly because some of it is dated.

    this guide:

    http://www.wiihacks.com/tutorial-arc...html#post50640

    says you must downgrade to 3.2.. i am 4.2 and am guessing there is probably another way, i just have not figured it out yet.

    but scrabble is not in there.
    you might have to google freethewads. i had it with a bunch of wads and all you had to do was drag the wad onto the program (on pc of coarse) and it would give region options to set the game wad to.
