    Has anyone tried using the backup loader to launch a HBC install disc? Or any other non-wii game disc for that matter? I would try myself, but I am lacking in DVD's right now.

    To my current knowledge, no.
    I'd like to play some GC backups, though.

    I am not talking about another backup of any game system. I am talking about various burned discs that only worked with chipped wii's.

    I Figured that since the loader no longer requires patched games it would be possible.

    That's why I said to my current knowledge, no.
    There has been none (for at least what I've seen) of people trying to run those discs on a non-modded wii.
    Unless you want to be an hero and try it out, then go ahead.

    I tried it with a few things with mixed success. My guess is that anything made by team twiizer should work fine (I was using ISOs I had made myself with various homebrew programs in them).

    I got SNES9X GX working. I put SNES9X on the DVD and some roms, but I couldn't get it to read the roms from the DVD. I messed around with the source a little but no success. A few other homebrew applications worked and some didn't (I don't really remember, I did this a while ago with the leaked waninkoko loader). In my opinion creating homebrew to run off a disc, and making modifications to games is far more interesting than loading backups (somebody really needs to make a linux live dvd).
