ok, so like i said i'm almost a total noob but i DO - have HBC installed - have a bunch of emulators - have WiiMC and WiiMC+ and use them - have Mario Kart CTGP, Riivolution (for NSMBW hacks), and Project M (but i havent tried it) but i want to know is this "loader" (havent tried any of them) is what will allow me to play - Wii isos (regular isos, different region stuff, and Fatal Frame 4 english translation, Fatal Frame 2 being a different region, and just regular Wii isos) - Triforce games (for Mario Kart GP 1 & 2, obviously) - Gamecube isos (i actually got one to work with Nintendont, but would like to know if i could get them all working in this) - wads (for Mega Man 9 & 10 mainly) i have read a little of this page https://gbatemp.net/threads/usb-loader-gx.149922/ but was hoping to get my noobish questions out here, so 1. is the USB Loader GX meant to "replace" the regular Wii menu? i dont have a problem with clicking on HBC then USB Loader GX to access games, do i even need to fool with "forwarders" then (something else i dont know what is) so 2. what is a forwarder and are they necessary 3. will USB Loader GX play the 4 things (wii isos, triforce games, gamecube isos, and wads) i want it too or do i need 4 different apps? 4. whats a external HDD you guys recommend (if you are allowed to put amazon links on here that would be cool, and say what it is you like about them please) sorry if all this is (probably) very redundant, but i'd like to have some up to date answers. and thanks for taking the time to read all this!! and for any help you can offer a (almost) total noob!
