    Hi people,

    Does anyone have the safe means to test this two Wads for me?

    I would like to know if they are safe to install on both Wii and vWii.
    Or if they are only for one or another.

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    I'm a reputable user of gbatemp and other foruns. I have done my contribute for the community.
    Those wads are from their original sources:

    - OHBC WAD is from FIX94 and;
    - the Homer channel WAD is from here:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/homer-channel-remastered-download-homebrew-redirect.535303/

    I'm just looking for some answers. I would like to know if those wads are compatible with wii, vwii, or both.
    If anyone can check on their emuNANDs or Dolphin emulators, I would appreciate the help.

    The link you quoted didn't answered nothing, so I decided to open this thread to find some real answers.

    Thanks

    You put some "unknown" wads here without any Source and ask for Testing ?
    To install it on a Wii without knowing it is for a vWii or Wii ?
    What do you have expected ? :)

    Now that you have posted a Source,the Story looks a little different...
    If you still want "Proof" I will test it for you.With Pleasure.:)

    Thank you.:)

    Thanks for your help @alexander1970 .
    And sorry for scary you!

    These wads are the open source homebrew channel and the simpson's themed homebrew channel forwarder.
    Since no one on the original source explains the compatibility (wii/vwii), I would like to know.

    There is a converter tool for making a wad for wii, compatible with vwii. But I'm not sure if these wads run on both, or need any conversion.

    Hello.:)

    For the Wii - no Brick.:rofl2:

    Both Channels work and boots into the Homebrew Channel Screen.

    (as you can see,I have now 2 Homebrew Channels)

    For the vWii it will takes a little,I will make an NAND Backup before.Please be patient.

    Thank you.:)

    You're the man @alexander1970 !
    Thank you very much for all your effort.
    This will definitely reveals the truth if it is necessary some kind of conversion.

    I believe the OHBC wad will work perfect on both. The other one (the forwarder) in my opinion is the answer we are looking for.

    Thank you so much, really appreciated. Great job and very kind on helping.

    Thank you.:)

    After your test on vwii, please don't go deleting right away! I have one more request if you don't mind!

    @JoostinOnline made long ago a forwarder (vwii only) to fix the 16:9 issue with the original homebrew channel.
    In 2018 he made a v2 of this forwarder to be compatible with the new OHBC.
    Source:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/fix-for-the-hbc-with-the-v4-0-wii-u-update.355462/

    My last question is:
    Will this v2 forwarder work with the original HBC or only the new OHBC? What will it forward to when you have both? =)
    Can you check @alexander1970 ?

    Oh, you have already done the vwii test!
    That's great you had no problem at all!
    Thank you so much! I owe you a big one!

    For the RiiConnect24 Patcher:

    Ohne Titel-1.jpg

    It says "We are now patching a File,which is responsible for the 4:3 Ratio Aspect Bug".:)
    It is for "bringing back" working Channels like Weather/News/Everybody Votes...:)
    For the Wii and vWii.

    Can you just check if the v2 forwarder still loads the original HBC, please?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I just wonder why some people swear it is always necessary to convert wads from wii to vwii, or it will brick.
    Today you just send that affirmation down the toilet!

    No no! Don't delete the original. Just the one you installed today, the Open homebrew channel. Just uninstall using the same wad.
