    Wondering and worried since I don't have the ability to title a thread

    Hello everyone. I briefly tried softmodding my Wii and I have to say that I loved it with the SNES emulator, but I virginized my Wii shortly after because I had gotten worried. I'm debating weather or not I should go back, but this time I wanna ask yall.

    My purpose for the soft mod is only for emulation of Super nintendo games, sega genesis games, and possibly NES games. I have no plans to do anything else beyond this and have every intention of buying Wiiware games off the Wii shop channel and buying Wii games and using them with the disc, not using any sort of back uploader. So I have a few questions based on this.

    Will I be able to buy wii points, buy games, and download games off the Wii Shop channel without fear of being caught having Homebrew and having Nintendo bricking my Wii for having it?

    Will I not have to worry about needing IOS for games if I'm playing them from the actual disc and not a burned disc or external HDD?

    Could I still play games online without worrying about being caught with homebrew on my Wii?

    Is is still possible to install SNES emulator as an actual channel on a 4.2U Wii?

    Is there anything other than bricking that I need to fear by using the HBC and using emulators?

    I appreciate yall answering these as I did try searching but the majority of topics I found either never gave clear answer or just linked a guide that only explained how to install something and not if it was safe or the limits of it.

    Well I do understand that I won't be updating in the normal way anymore, but is updating that important or is it just superficial and I can just easily get the important stuff from this site?

    So to sum everything up, I can use it for emulation with no worries about it effecting online or being caught with it and when it's time to update I just come here to get the important files? Will disc updates be covered as well or is it just for updates via internet?

    Probably have to install priiloader to block disc updates as essentially this is just to update required ioses or revisions which u will be doing manually.

    Ah, so I'll be treat Disc updates the same as online updates, gotcha. Yay, I'm so happy. Kinda burnt right now so I'll do it later tonight. I'm just glad, after using the SNES emulator on the Wii, I wanna storm to Nintendo and ask them why they couldn't implement some of that stuff, like smoothing the image, actually stretching it to fit the screen, and making save state an option instead of forcing it on you when you exit the game. Oh well the emulator will fix all that.

    Oh one last thing, what emulators besides the SNES one plays 99% of the games perfectly with little to no problems.? I tried that Wii64 with Dr. Mario64 and Doom64, but they both had bad issues (Dr. Mario had horrible graphic issues that made it unplayable and Doom 64 had such horrid sound that I couldn't play it long enough and I don't wanna play a game with no sound).
