Hey everyone, I've finally decided to get a Wii with the intention of setting it up to play Gamecube games, virtual Wii games, and backups, but as I've never messed with Wii "hacking" before, I'm still a bit in the dark. I found the great guide in the tutorials section that shows a step-by-step on setting up a HBC and all that stuff, but I still had a few things I wanted to ask about: Firstly, back when I initially found out about the possibility of hacking a Wii (it's been awhile), I remember reading that a certain exploitable game was needed (Lego Batman was one of them I believe) in order to get it working -- or at least I think I did. Since it's not mentioned in the guide, does that mean it's not necessary anymore? I was also wondering if there was a particular, recommended Wii console that I should buy or if it doesn't matter? I was planning on just going with the classic white pre-owned they sell at gamestop for like 80 bucks. Lastly, if there's anything else that a noob modder should know to make this process smoother (like helpful, must-have programs or apps I should get, things I shouldn't do, etc) I'd really appreciate the advice. Or if there's anything special I should buy while I'm out getting the system itself (already planning to get a Gamecube controller), please let me know. Hoping to pick one up tonight. I've probably got more questions, but that's all I can think of at the moment. Thanks in advance for any information!
