    some newbie questions and skylander question

    a few questions:
    1. when i use one of the usb loaders for example wiiflow from the "softmod any wii guide" to copy a original game disc on to my hard drive can I then load that game in a different usb loaser eg: cfg?

    If i update a 4.3e using the the "softmod any wii guide" downgrading as recommended to 4.1 I understand that i should configure priiloader to block disc updates but can discs still be loaded via disc channel or will they still prompt for update and need to be loaded from neogamma?

    Now on to skylanders: i have read here and on other forums conflicting reports about how to run it and how successfully it picks up the portal of power etc. On here in the difficult game guide it says it will not run via wiiflow becasue you can't change the ios- elsewhere i have read it runs on wiiflow? just wondering if anyone here has got it going on wiiflow?

    Also in the guide here it says do not turn the portal of power on wait until the game does it for you - my kids are currently playing it on an unsoftmodded wii and it prompts you to turn the portal of power on - if you don't it just cycles through instruction screens asking you about changing batteries etc. You have to turn it on manually.
    I'm asking all this before i soft mod as this is so far my kids only game (besides the mandatory wii sports) and I want to copy it on to hdd before it gets scratched up - however if it is going to be a problematic game to play from hdd maybe i should rethink softmodding for now?

    1. yes the loader is just a tool to find the games, so every usb loader will find whatever games are on your drive.

    2. Original discs can be played from the disc channel. Backup discs (If your Wii is old enough to play) would need to be played from Neogamma. And with the block disc updates hack enabled, they will not ask for updates.

    3. I don't own Skylander, so I can't really say (I do need to get it soon, since my daughter loves Spryro). I would ask in the guide, if it doesn't already explain it.

    No problem.

    I would think it would work in the latest version of Wiiflow though. You can not choose which IOS to load the game with in it, because it chooses the best one for you. So I would imagine it would pick the correct one for that game.
