    TRIFORCE...Is it worth the trouble?

    I am thinking about installing Triforce...right now i use Wad manager to install/uninstall my wads as I play them. What I want to know opinions of is.. is it worth the trouble of installing? In doing research on it Ive seen alot of peopel saying games load slow, some games dont work. It seems like it is alot of trouble to install, load the screens etc... I would be using the SD method and not the usb/hdd install method.
    But i am up for it if it adds any benefit.
    Any opinions??

    If you plan on installing alot ov VC and/or Wiiware, you will run out of system space very quickly. This is the main advantage, so that you can run alot of them without using your system resources up. Also The sandisk like the one used to mod the wii work alot faster than other brands and sd itself is the fastest communication with the wii outside of being directly installed onto it's system itself.

    It only took me about an hour to completely figure it out, get it working, and how to add images. It's pretty darn simple if you just follow the instructions.

    It would be for mostly WIIware games as most the VC channels can be played with other emulators. But from what I understand most the games I wnat wont work(strong bad series, monkey island series, castlevania, lost wind 2)

    For that reason alone it is worth it.

    One bad wad, for whatever reason, will brick your Wii.

    By keeping the wads off your Wii nand and running off an emu nand is well worth it.

    And buy/get the fastest SD card you can afford, the higher the class rating & the faster the r/w speed of the card will only be of long term benefit to you.

    Except the fastest SD cards are also HC aren't they? If so, TriForce doesn't play well with SDHC cards at the moment.
