    Question, im using WiiFlow and GX for the USB Boot Loaders but now want to try the WiiWare...

    What is the best way for me to run the games? is there a way I can get a list going like in the two USB Loaders?

    How do I go about creating forwarders to individual games?

    thanks in advance

    wiiware are installed as channels in the wii menu (with wad manager)
    if you have 4.0 you can move em to the sd card
    there is no app that plays em yet

    Wrong, you can use GeckoOS to load channels (not from SD) ... but why not just have region free channels patch enabled in preloader and if that doesnt work patch the wad with your favourite tool (mine is VC Injector) to your region?

    ...but you still need to have the game installed as Channel.

    I'm using my SD card for WiiWare.
    Just make a folder on the root of your SD card called "wads" and place all your WiiWare wads in there. Then, download Wad Manager 1.4 (Google it), make a folder on the root (again) but called "apps" and make a folder inside that folder. Inside that folder, place the "boot.dol" (Wad Manager). Then, pop the SD card into your Wii and launch the Wad Manager, install the WiiWare wad(s). Then, go to your Wii Settings (Channels) and copy the games onto your SD card. Then, to play them, go to the SD Channel and select the channel. Assuming you have firmware 4.0 of course.

    This way, your Wii has lots of space (which I recommend for game saves), and your SD card keeps all the wads/WiiWare channels.
