    Exclamation Please Help! Getting games onto the HBC

    I have successfully installed the HBC, I used bannerbomb and also installed the trucha bug. I also installed cios 236. Where I'm struggling is putting a game onto the channel. I understand the iso game file needs to be in the apps folder in the same way the ios and cios are however the iso file is over 4 gig and therefore will not go on my FAT formatted HD. I have downloaded WBFS and reformatted my HD, the iso file goes on there fine now, however I cannot open the HD to put the iso file in an APPS folder and therefore the HBC does not see it when I out it in my Wii. Really sorry if I'm being a complete thicko but I've hit a wall with this now!!! Please help!!!

    puting your wii games in the apps folder ??? your wii games go in a folder thats called wbfs on the root of your hdd and you use a usb loader to play them, fat32 will play your games but if its over 4gb you need to split it using a game manager

    you will want to format your hdd to fat32 using this guide http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-playing.html then you want to make the iso to wbfs format using this guide http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-guides-tutorials/85827-guide-wii-game-manager.html

    o
    r you can rip your original disc to your hard drive using the usb loader that you have on the wii

    I've split the ISO using the game manager link you provided, I also used uloader and managed to get that on the HBC. I cannot however install Hermes cIOS 222 and therefore cannot use the uloader. I have installed waninkoko's cIOS which required the WAD to be unchecked (the wii is offline, I am using the NUS downloader) and seemed much simpler. For some reason when I try to install cIOS 222 it "fails to allocate temp buffer" it also tries to "initialize download IOS38 netadata... from internet" rather than from the SD card. Is there anything obvious you can think of that I've done wrong?

    God knows what I'm doing wrong but I cannot install cIOS 222. I followed this link (removed out side guide) but I'm guessing I copied the files wrong or put them in the wrong place, I have however copied the instructions to the letter.

    Any ideas???

    How many questions do I get Peire??!!!
    Firstly, thank you, I now have successfully installed Hermes 222. I used the game manager to split the ISO file and then put it into the wbfs file in the root of the hdd like you told me, however when I load it on uloader it says "no wbfs partition found". I tried to add file to partition in the game manager but it said none were found or all were in use...
