    Okay, so my dad just got CoD: WaW, but our Wii is restricted to "T" and under. (CoD is "M")

    I'm a freak about using USB Loaders, but my dad doesn't want me playing CoD, so I want to make a channel with Crap that asks to input the Wii PIN.

    Is this possible?

    I'm a little confused. Your dad bought CoD but he has the console setup with parental controls (so he plays that game but won't let you, I guess) and you want...a way to unlock the parental controls via a channel install?

    So you have the COD game as disc ? Use bannerbomb to load GECKO OS and boot the game from there.

    I think he wants to make USB forwarder channels that honor the wii's parental control settings.

    That's what I thought.

    USB Loader GX has Parental Settings AFAIK.

    Then run another usb loader from bannerbomb / hbc and boot it from that.

    I don't think his goal was to get around the parental controls...he asked how to make forwarders that obey them.

    just make a channel that boots your favorite usb loader with the correct arguments just like crap does. but before it boots the game, just do a simple check like usb loader GX does for the wii's parental control stuff. since the channel you make will never ever change and will always be for the same game, you can hardcode the parental level of the game right in that channel.

    Can you please explain how to do this. What you are saying is a lot easier said than done, especially without proper direction as to what to do. Sorry, some people (including me) need a lot more than vague answers to understand what it going on.

    if you have to have it explained to you, then you arent going to be able to do it. this is a pretty simple thing and would take 100x times longer for somebody to explain to you than to actually do it their self.
    you better just wait for somebody else to do it.

    Yeah...

    I'm just gonna clean up my Wii Menu, remove the 10 shortcut channels, and just put a forwarder to Wiiflow so its parental controls can kick in.
    As for making it with arguments in CRAP...
    Config doesn't have parental controls, USB Loader GX does about as much for me as an orange peel, and Wiiflow doesn't have a forwarder in Crap. Although I know how to set the arguments, I just don't know what to set them to.
