    another stupid question, but in the guide i have to install the softmod pack and the update pack onto my sd card, but both have their own wad file....do i compile all into one wad file???
    If it is a problematic game, there is a guide.
    Yes, all of the wads go into the same wad folder.

    All done, and all seems great! A massive thanx to all you guys that helped!!

    The only remaning possible problems are that the game may insist on an update still...if so, thats a question for another thread...and also, i am now going to soft mod my own wii, lets hope it goes as smooth

    before i close this thread i have two questions;

    after following the 'mod any wii' guide i ended up with a channel named 'backup disk loader' .....is this functional? it wasnt mentioned in the guide.

    also, i tried to install neogamma but could only get it to load form the SD, can it be installed to the wii? i downloaded the neogamma folder holding the boot.dol, icon and meta files. Placed it in the App folder on my sd card, and loaded it from the HBC.......this works, but i would like to end up with a wii channel that will load the backup disks without the need of an sd card.

    You must have skipped priiloader o r not enabled the hacks. Be sure to go fix that!

    I think the back up loader channel is neogamma, click on it and see.

    Prii loader seemed to instal ok, i checked by holding reset on boot up and it loaded. the only hacks i enabled was the block disk, and online updates...the rest i left dissabled

    I havent got the game that my sister said insisted on an update, and she lives 150 miles away, so wont be able to test it till the weekend when i visit...lets hope it works.

    if the backup loader isnt neogammer, is there a way to install it onto the wii?

    NeoGamma and Forwarder Channel

    I misread your post, i thought that the game WAS asking for an update now. You should be fine.

    All you need is the forwarder channel, it will point to the .dol in your neogamma folder. It will load whatever version you already have in your apps. Is there another way to install a channel without a wad??

    The forwarder channel download link is under the big black picture.

    The files i downloaded didnt have a wad, only a boot.dol, meta and icon files.

    the neogamer that already has a channel after softmodding by the guide 'softmod any wii' is the r8 revision 17 i mentioned...it seems to work ok without the sd card in but without a backup i can say for sure. will it need a forwarder and sd card to work?
