    Will I be able to copy my old zelda saves back onto the wii , or even have it read the saves from an SD card without it messing up the hack?

    Any help would be very appreciated!

    Yes, you can still copy it back to the Wii. Just delete the TPH save from the Wii system memory and copy your original save back into the Wii. And no, you can't just run saves from the SD.

    I have kept the twilight hack on the console and you can just use the other save files to play the game.
     
  4. Now that I think about it, isn't their a third save slot? Or can't you just delete one of the save files that you don't need for the hack?

    Like on the US one, there is two versions of the hack for two different DVD's. I only have one of them so couldn't you just delete the other one and use it safely while still keeping the twilight hack?

    Perfect for Starfall users.

    Well you can just take the Twilight Hack Save off the Wii and just keep it somewhere where you'll be able to find it on your computer in case you need it in the future. I beat Zelda almost 100% and I doubt I'll play it soon but I have the save back on my Wii working.

    Keep it on your Wii in case you need to recover from a brick.

    So, if I remove the TH, play zelda on the weekend and then decide I won't play it anymore, I can just delete my zelda save and install the TH again without any problems?

    The question is: why you should keep TH on your Wii after HBC is installed? [​IMG]
    I don't think you always run homebrews from Twilight Hack...

    That's a terrible advice. Don't get rid of the TH save file: in the case of a brick, you need it to fix your console. If it's bricked, you can't transfer it from the SD card, so it's handy to have it there "just in case". Better safe than sorry.

    can't you copy the hack to the 3rd saved game slot and play it as a saved game and still have TP hack still in place?

    This is confusing, I have overwritten the Hack save file.

    However I am playing TP at the moment. How do I get the hacked save game on there and keep the other two saves so I can continue to play - without having to restart TP from scratch....

    Only if you have Starfall installed, or a modchip
