    Hi all,
    I want to install the Mario Kart channel on my Wii but it will not install. I have Gamma installed and Homebrew Channel, would this be the reason why it won't install? There is loads of free space.

    Cheers,
    M
     


  2. I would assume that would be why because I've tried too.


    I was going to dump the data from the Original Mario Kart disk but I'm not sure if you could use any Mario Kart Channel because I've only tried a pal wad with it...I have a NTSC USA Wii.

    Nope but i read it is all good.

    Iv installed wads from same source before, just not that particular one.

    its ultimately up to you, but i'd say give it a go.

    Thanx, what is the worst that could happen?

    Also, I have the original backup loader and want to remove it, do I need a WAD to do this? Where would I get it? The loader has a logo of the Wii with a halo and wings?

    Thanx,
    M

    If you have any backup loader installed (from a wad) in your wii system menu, just click the Wii symbol (bottom left of the wii system menu) then click data management then channels, and remove it that way.

    That channel installed perfectly! U sure about the loader just removing via data management and not going in via WAD manager to remove it?

    So with VC games do u just remove them through data management or is it done using WAD manager? I have always removed my VC games with WAD manager up to now.....
