    Hey


    Just wondering, excluding softmods, whats the best modchip (hardmod) out there right now?

    I believe that no modern Wii modchip requires soldering but Ive added it just in case....

    If you reply, reply with which chip you voted for and if it required soldering or not.

    WiiKey Fusion Ive been reading is pretty good [​IMG]

    No wiikey fusion is not good because it does not support gamecube audio streaming which is the only reason you would get a modchip nowadays. All solderless modchip are in the same boat.

    If you checked the **, you'd see that: ** Audiostreaming games can be played in silence. [​IMG]

    In terms of features and what you can do, I'd say that the Wode is head and shoulders above everything else. Just about all the others have the same features (and lack thereof, like 3x disc loading, no audiostreaming, etc etc.) If all you want is a chip to read burned discs, you may as well just close your eyes and pick one randomly, because they all do it.

    Just make sure you're trying to chip a drive that *can* be chipped.

    Get a WODE if you want to play from SD and HDD, but if you want to go cheap and just play all games from DVD get a Wiikey II or Wasabi.
    This three Chips are well supported and play the latest games.

    Kind of judgemental comment... this thread is not only for you. Anyhow my point is theres no point in having a modchip but to play gamecube games. Thats why people like wode so much theres also the sundriver thats 'kind of' like the wode.
    If youre gonna play gamecube games why not having them running 100%...

    IMO nowadays modchips make sense only for modifying fw 4.3. [​IMG]
    From this point of view the cheapest one working for your drive is the best choice.
    But yeah wode jukebox is the coolest one since fully support usb devices.

    This thread just helped me make my decision
    I've been thinking about buying a wode for a few weeks now
    but I wan't sure if it's worth the money, I'll probably order one tonight

    Another thing: Its between WiiKey 2 and WODE Jukebox. Why arent the rest getting any, moreso since WiiKey 2 has to be soldered and there are a couple on the list which need no soldering at all.

    Modchips are VERY outdated.

    Sadly, you cant buy/rent 4.3E make-your-wii-homebrew-compatible games anywhere. They dont carry them (obvious choice on their part)

    Not true!

    WODE is the best way to play Games on Wii.

    No need for different loaders or ios and cios for playing a new game...I tell it again ... JUST PLAY... and thats what a Console is for [​IMG]

    I comment on using Wiikey Fusion (sorry for being persistent) as its compatible with all consoles and (AFAIK) is completely solderless while the Wiikey 2 requires soldering and is NOT compatible with the latest Wii.

    Installing the HBC (which I suspect can be installed using this) and USB loaders will allow me to load games from USB correct?
