    I haven't been on the shop channel since ive been pirating vc games in fear of being detected by nintendo and banned or something crazy. So i was wondering if it was possible to gift vc games that you downloaded.

    Eh..I wouldn't try it. I believe something like that would be easy totrace since the transfer happens over the Wii I believe.

    Of course not. Every time you gift a game, whether you bought it or not, you have to pay Wii Points to send it out. You're basically sending them permission to download the game directly from the Wii Shop channel and paying in advance. So you're not sending the game itself, so again, no, you can't send pirated games for free.

    Building on this.... I wonder if gifted titles don't show up in your purchase history - ie, like pirate VC games.

    Ohhhh that's a good question. When I gift something it does show up on my transactions in the shop channel, but I don't know about recieveing them!

    If you give someone your copy of TP and an SD with the wadloader and VC game, sure.
