    Question How To Work .Wads files ?

    Hey i have just found out how to burn out .iso wii games.. on a dvd.
    and then i came across a .wad file... .
    After a researching a while i found out that it is actually a channel like thing .

    So few questions ..
    1) i got this .wad file .. which is basically a game called " FFCC My Life As A King " meaning its a channel which i open nex time the game just appears right ?

    2) The most important question how do I install these channel into my wii ?
    My wii supposedly bought from the shop .. has neogamma latest one , wii homebrew , SoftChip something.... .

    3) Will It take up alot of space ? i dont have an extra memory stick or it .
    4) Will my wii have a potential chance of bricking ?

    Thanks ! please help out a wii user !

    first, i would do alittle more research on .wad files on this forum.... with the correct programs (WadManger) you can take .wads and load them for many many different reasons, i would not load anything on your wii that you did not know where it came from and what it will do... you will end up in the brick wii forum section very quickly by not knowing what you are loading... and the wad that you have im not familiar with... where did you get it and i would read the two guides in my sig, do not do anything to your wii with these, its for educational purposes...

    1. If u install it, it will show up as a channel(games do)
    2.Wad Manager as said above
    3. games do not ussualy go over 350 blocks=around 40mbs(make sure u HAVE free space)
    4.Some might be bad wads that brick ur wii but if u have preloader, unistalling that bad wad will ussualy fix it

    gosh....
    well i did research on this forum .. but everything just became a little bit too much and confusing ...

    but i do have contact with the shop person , if possible may i ask what should i ask to confirm my wii will not be bricked >.> . he just told me not to update the wii which i can see a channle.. that says UPDATE WII

    and i wanna ask.. are there Channles in the wii which are games ? if so.. then maybe this " final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life As a King " is a channle....

    is the wii you got a PAL or NTSC console.... and "shop person" what i would have done is get your self a clean wii from the store (bestbuy - amazon - walmart) $200 and then softmod it with the guides in this forum and it will make more sence... becasue when you softmod yourself you will have an understanding of the wii - mod process...

    theres a program that converts to region free =D


    or get them to install something like preloader and set "region free channels"

    then you'd be right.
