    CustomizeMii can relatively easily make forwarders, there's a general tutorial here

    However, the base WAD downloads are broken, so you'll have to use something else for a base

    CustomizeMii is supposed to be able to download base WADs, which you can use and edit the graphics, audio, animations, etc to your liking. You'll have to find a different WAD to use as a base

    ok, first of all there's a link on the page that you gave me "Some additional base WADs made by SifJar are available here" . I downloaded them with no problem. So i can use one of them as a base, right?
    Secondly, it says on the tutorial page "Browse for an existing wad file. Note that this has to be the wad of a channel (IOS wads and other stuff will result in an error when loading)"
    Does it mean i can use a wad file of one of my existing WII channels (for example FCE Ultra GX) and use it as a base?
    Finally, I watched this video on youtube () and this guy uses a base wad file (nes - NESS.wad) that he uploaded. I downloaded it and i can use it as a base and basically follow what he does in the video, right?

    I do believe you can use any channel as a base, yes

    Yes, just type in the name of the folder in apps on your SD card, nothing else.

    Depends on the app, check to see if the app is a boot.dol or a boot.elf, it's likely to be a boot.dol

    ok, got it, what about other options on the Options tab? Like Startup IOS, NAND loader, Turn off security checks, etc? Do I leave them the way they are?

    ok, last question

    what i wanna do is create a channel that would forward to an application (game) in the apps folder on my SD card.

    For example, I downloaded this wii homebrew game Splatter Castle and I don't want to click on the Homebrew Channel channel and then click on this game in the list to play it every time, instead I want to have a channel for this game in the Wii main menu or whatever you call it, you know what I mean, this is what i am talking about. (see image below)[​IMG]

    So, all the steps that you recommended in this conversation are the right steps to make a WAD file that would do exactly that (create a channel that would take me to the app i want), right?

    Right, following this and the tutorial.

    Also, you have Priiloader or BootMii as Boot2, right?

    Well, you should follow this guide first, it's important to at least have Priiloader when installing custom WADs and such

    Hold reset while on the Wii Menu. If it shows up, you have it installed
