    10) WiiDoom
    9) Wolfenstein 3-D
    8) DOSBox
    7) Scumm VM
    6) Visual Boy Advance
    5) WadManager 1.5(mod)
    4) MPlayer_CE
    3) USB Loader (coverfloader, NeoGamma)
    2) FTPii
    1) Homebrew Browser

    It was a hard call for 1 and 2, since I use both quite frequently. Thanks to HBB allowing you to update your current apps, it takes the win, for me at least.

    With Preloader considered a 'non-application', I also assumed BootMii and StartPatch are on that list... I am not big into emulators, as I've played all the games on those consoles that I've wanted to. Not that I need to justify my explanations for top 10.

    Those make permanent nand fixes and so they should be considered apps. Preloader is kinda different.

    And VBA GX and SNES GX are well done.

    9 is not valid for this thread (just giving more examples)

    BTW You can't have 500 games installed....
    2TB (theory) = 2048 GB / 4.37 GB = 468 games
    2TB (real life) = ~2000 GB / 4.37 GB = 457 games

    So as of right now markenhmus it is impossible to have on a HDD 500 games

    your logic would be correct if every wii game was DVD sized, however, they aren't. Wii Sports for example is tiny.

    Indeed. I can't remember who said it, but it has been claimed that the average game size is around 1.8GBytes (if i remember correctly).
    USB loaders/WBFS managers don't dump the entire 4.37 GB of data, they only dump the important partitions of games.

    I have been gone for a while (I came here and left here while Wii was on 3.3) and I believe back in the day all Wii games HAD to be 4.37 GB (and the exact number of bytes) in order to run. My apoligies.

    1TB Westerndigital harddrive(HD) in a Velocity enclosure, tried not to reapeat a game from another region so all games would be different on the HD
    but AerosmithGuitarhero and Megadeth Guitarhero both show as Areosmith (till you changed the title and pic of course for customs)

    if the HD wasnt partitioned 1st , 40-50GB of free space is left which would be nice for usbloader picks ,cheats,HBC apps...whatevr
    time to buy another and partition it and swap over

    now WAITING to get wad play from HD/SD so Wiiware and VC could be left in the 1st partition of HD and played from wad without install to wii memory...sux its always full

    -=-=-=-

    2.) arctic tale .22gb
    3.) ballon pop .08gb ......DUI haha, two games are that i've found like that, too small to fit in a shot glass
    4.) billy the wiz .11gb
    5.) bomberman .19gb
    6.) burgerisland .14gb
    7.) brunswick bowling .19gb

    9.) crayola colorful world .23gb

    ( here: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/Wii...Game_Sizes_List and here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=76260 )

    I do not understand your VERY (and I mean VERY) poor english. Ill comment on what I did understand...

    Installing cIOS USB for USB 2.0 support is not considered a application in this thread. In this thead (Ive repeated it so following posters will understand)

    What does install time (which isnt install time; It is simply transfering everything on a Wii DVD to a USB HDD) have to do with how many games can fit in a 2TB HDD?

    Why, if the loaders that you tried didnt support displaying more than 500 games, did you post that a loader with 500 games was a great application?

    Those games you listed from a to d are not games; They are homebrew applications which has a function to act as a game. These, if you want to include them in your top 10, ARE homebrew applications.

    Technically, most of the main IOS's can be considered applications because they are installed by one. Wanin's cIOS Installer, Wiigators mIOS patcher, etc. They all let your Wii do something it couldn't do before.

    He is mentioning install time because if you put in a retail copy of say Crayola Colorful World, it only takes 18 seconds to rip it to the HD using USB Loader GX, because the actual game is only 230mb and the rest of the 4.7 GB of 'data' on the disc is filler that is scrubbed out. You know the 'install game' option in USB Loader GX?

    I fail to understand you here. Is an application like USB Loader GX, which is capable of launching up to 500 games from a partition not a great application? IMO the USB loaders are probably the greatest homebrew apps available for the Wii ... by far.

    All those games he listed are retail Wii titles, that scrub down to very small sizes. They are not homebrew. I have most of them and can confirm the sizes.

    Why don't you read up on what's possible and what's available before you start arguing with people. It makes you look foolish.

    I really wouldn't make comments on his english, when you seem to have a serious comprehension problem yourself.

    Retrievil, thanx for clarifying
    ...i may be hard to understand,sorry.

    and yes i believe even if the usbloader only loaded 1 game instead of 500, it would still be about the KOOLest thing going

    cIOSCorp is dirty, not neat, and shouldn't be on any top 10 lists. My two pennies.

    I'd throw WiiXplorer on the list, though. It's simple sd/usb/smb browsing is a sure fit on my Wii, deleted SDExplorer the moment I discovered it.
