    I'm reading the instructions here how to install DarkCORP and I see:

    "If you already have cIOS249 installed, select:
    (Uses IOS249) Install/Upgrade to DARKCORP v1.0 (regular mode)

    If you have cIOS249 rev18/19, but it's not base 38, but you have
    cIOS222 installed, select:
    (Uses IOS222) Install/Upgrade to DARKCORP v1.0 (regular mode)

    If however, you have neither cIOS, or only cIOS249 rev18/19, but not
    base 38, select:
    (Uses 36+249) Install: Virgin Wii method (TBR + cIOS249 r17b + CORP)
    This will install cIOS249 rev17 (with DL bug fix), then use it to
    install DARKCORP v1.0."

    I honestly have no idea what I have installed though. How do I tell?

    Can you load backups?

    Yes, currently I can load (most) dvd backups using a loader channel.

    In that case use the option that requires IOS249.

    Word of warning though - I know exactly which cIOSs I have, which slots they are in, what bases they use and I wouldn't touch darkCORP for fear of bricking my Wii. So If you don't know these sorts of things or how to find them out do you really want to install something so dangerous?

    It's not THAT dangerous.

    It has about the same risk as the 4.1 Official Wii System Update (when 4.1 was latest, that is. 4.2 update is even more dangerous than DARKCORP installation, due to 4.2 update modifying boot2).

    Just try:
    (Uses IOS249) Install/Upgrade to DARKCORP v1.0 (regular mode)

    But...
    If you haven't already done so, install bootmii, and make a NAND backup BEFORE doing anything.

    I do have a NAND backup, so I should be safe. Is there any possible way though for me to check whether I have the cIOS and if it's base 38 or not? I really just don't want anything bad to happen.

    Easiest is to just try it. If it's not base 38, it'll likely spit out error -1029 when it goes to install.

    Sorry, I don't want to sound nitpicky, but you're saying it will LIKELY spit out error -1029...but what if it doesn't and something gets screwed up? Do you know for sure that it is coded to do that and that's what can actually happen?

    either it will work, or it will give an error, if it gives an error, it will not make any changes to your system (afaik)
