    Since my copy of TP will be a rental, once I send it back, will I have to re rent it if I want to install or uninstall more VC games? Or is there a way around that?

    The wii homebrew launcher wad channel
    it browses a homebrew folder from the root of the sd card witch can be filled with both installer and unistaller folders with boot.elf inside of each ones.

    if you correctly install everything like the WAD install and Uninstaller CHANNELS you will never need TP again. You would just have the wads in the Wad Folder in the SD card then go to the install or uninstall to do what you like. But simple answer is No.

    Is there any way somebody could make a banner for it? Instead of it being that black screen, because the black screen won't look right with everything else.

    If your Wii is modded, you could make an installer ISO. That's what I did today. There's a tutorial around here.

    But my wii's not modded. So you guys are saying, that the Wad Installer channel will install everything, and I won't have to use TP again? I just want a banner to come out for it. Any idea when that will be made?

    thats right, it installs everything, no need for tp.
    the homebrew channel is still in progress, i think it will be released about next month or so....
    here's the preview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=op1V5eWpTQQ

    (you need coding knowledge to make a custom banner, theres no tool out yet)

    1. Put wad installer elf file on root of your memory card (rename it to boot.elf)
    2. Create a directory on the root of the card called "wad"
    3. In the directory "wad" put the wad installation channel and uninstallation channel wads in there.
    4. Boot twilight hack and reset when prompted.
    5. Enjoy your new channels [​IMG]


    If you require any files send a pm my way [​IMG]

    Actually I wonder ( I don't know if anyone has ever posted about this yet) if I can delete the TP hack savegame from my Wii console once I have run it and installed the WAD Installer channel, Homebrew Launcher etc. or if have to keep it forever. I just aks because I don't know if e.g. the WAD Installer uses the same buffer overflow or it's just accessing the TP hack to get to install WADs.
    I didn't want to open a new thread for this, because I think it wasn't necessary, anyway I hope this is the right thread to ask for that - I felt it was! [​IMG]

    No, the Save file is just used by the Zelda disc. Once the channel is installed it can be deleted.
