    hi all,

    just wondering, are virtual console tickets console specific?

    ie: if I install some VC games to virtual NAND on a USB device, then take the device to my friend's place and connect it to their Wii, will the games work or will they fail because the tickets aren't for their machine? (I'm making an assumption that tickets are tied into machine ID, but I have no idea how they work).

    thank you.

    Purchased games are, warez games (WADs) and generic channels aren't.

    They will work because you are using virtual NAND and the tickets are tied to the machine you are emulating. And, anyway, you are using a cIOS.

    thanks for the replies!

    I now feel confident I can take my USB drive to my friend's place and I won't end up wiping the HDD or stuffing his Wii.

    thank you.
