    so i ordered wii free loader [​IMG] but then found out i didnt have anoth money in my bank account so 3-4days ago i message them to cancel my order. they replyed to me last night saying they couldnt because it was just shipped [​IMG]. so now my bank is overdrawn [​IMG] and datel made me wait so they could get a sale from me. lets hope the free loader is worth while. (also might dump it [​IMG])

    Not only that but with the video mode patcher that's just been released you don't really need the freeloader.

    Doh!

    But in all fairness, if you did contact them ahead of time to cancel, and they didn't, then you should call them on it. Frankly, I stopped dealing with Datel years ago because they're a piece of crap company with piece of crap business ethics.

    I'd be phoning them and tearing their ear off for not cancelling the order ahead of time -- It's not like they're some incredible service and have everything shipped out the second they receive an order.

    Doesn't that assume you have a modded console?

    Will a backup of the freeloader work as the original? I mean, if you have a modchip installed.

    I'd have to agree, why did you buy something without knowing if you had the money to pay for it [​IMG]

    freeloader is likely to be obfuscated and/or encrypted, so don't have false hopes on it.

    What did they screw you over? The kitchen counter? The arm of the couch?

    The freeloader was 20 bucks, right? How can you not have 20 bucks?
