    Simple questions. i would hope

    okay sooo i am softmodding my wii. im using bommerbong or w/e i got it installed fine along with dvdX and i got the homebrew channel installed but then i got into it and i was like wtf there is nothing here? so i looked around found out you need apps so i got the homebrew browser thing and i was like olay~ but now my questions is. i did this whole thing JUST so i can play backup games. i know how to burn the ISOs to DVDs and whatnot but im not sure what to do....i put the DVD into the drive and go to homebrew channel and nothing pops up? i assume this is because i am missing a APP that lets you play the game? not sure. or can i not use DVDs? i have a external HDD i would rather not use it but i would if i had to. seems pretty straight foreword everything seems to be working and updated just not sure what to do next. thanks for the help!

    Sounds like you just need the app click here just unrar the contents and place the neogamma folder in the apps folder of ur SD card!!!

    Then go to the homebrew channel and launch the app and ur game should start!

    If you have system menu 4.2, use this guide.
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html
    It will help you install two channels (one for disc loading and one for usb loading) on your Wii to play backup games. You WILL be using the Homebrew Channel for this, so don't worry--you didn't waste your time. Plus, you can use it to play older games using emulators and all sorts of awesome other apps.
    If you don't have system menu 4.2, just search this site for the right guide. I would personally tell you to update your system to 4.2 and then follow the guide, but a lot of people disagree with me, so maybe you might not want to. But that's what I did and had no problems.

    Did you use a guide? Or did you just get the NeoGamma program for Homebrew Channel use? Because as far as I know, NeoGamma doesn't work unless you go through the whole installation process first. Also, if you use the guide on here, you can install the .wad version of NeoGamma to make it into a channel, so you don't have to keep going into the HBC all the time.
    Everything you're doing sounds good, though. I've heard some people say that only certain brands of DVDs work, and I've heard other people say they all work (as long as they're DVD-R and are burned slowly). I use Memorex, so if that happens to be your brand, then at least we know it's not the disc.

    okay so again i think my retard level is off the charts lol. so i finally figured out negamma or w/e and i installed it and when i go to the app it just turns black...only thing i could think of is the game is pal and my tv is probably ntsc? dunno whats the deal maybe its just freeszing. also the controller disconnects?. ummm i guees i dont need dvds so if someone wants to tell me how to do it usb stle that would be great.no offence but that guide is a little confusing. okay sofar what i have done is, got bannerbomb, got the private folde and gotten hombrew channl boot.elf file or w/e put it in wii got to bannbomb screen installed it and dvdX and thats really it, i havnt anything else to work really accpet homebrew browser that works too. umm i havent messed with any IOs or cvios?! or whatever they are called so if someone could explaine those to me? and yea because of the ios cios and whatnot that guide makes me confused. i am using 4.2 and yea. thanks for any help!
