    I actually tried installing these cracked VC games yestarday, only got DKC2 to install fully, just got the code error on the others, very impressive work by the guys who figured out how to do this.

    But, and heres my question,

    I think i am of the same view as bushing and the other who said this should not have been done and even though as i said above, this is impressive, i would now like to remove the installed games from my wii system.

    I think i can go to the wii system memory to delete the games but as i understand, this must still leave some information behind as i think i can still go to the wii shop channel and redownload the game for free.

    SO, what i am asking is, if there is some very clever Wii scene'r who might know what these games are leaving behind, if anything, and if they may have any insight into how i and im sure some others may go about getting rid of these remaining bits of info without messing up the Wii.

    Many thanks in advance to anyone who can or may have already figured this out, your work is much appreciated!!!

    probally the same method used by the dual channel remover would work if it was coded to work with vc channels

    i dunno....in your wii shop channel it doesnt show that you've already downloaded the games in your account history. If you completly remove everything like the dual channel remover did then i guess there would be no traces left on the wii.

    I mean with the dual channels, before i removed them okami didnt need an update, after i removed them completly okami needed an update.

    I also think that this could be done by changing the ids of the tickets that are deleted by the channel remover. Afaik, the thinks remains are tickets with ids, so they should be deletable.

    Yes, this would be a smart move. ATM I am so paranoid I wont install any VC games.

    I wont risk bricking it over 5 euro.

    Reformatting deletes all tickets. At least, it should, according to the people on #wiidev.

    Well this is strange. I always thought the only way to re-download a VC game was to buy one. I think this fact isn't linked with the tickets. If it was, so we should see the Homebrew Channel in the downloaded apps in the Wii Shop...

    Yes, formatting your Wii changes your Wii's ID number and you will lose all the games you bought as well and can not re-download them without buying them again.

    Hey man I was going to format my own Wii to experiment xD You saved my Mario Kart save file (wich can't be copied I think).

    I think the best way is just to delete the games, in normal ways. I really think Nintendo doesn't matter about that ticket history. And if they, just buy the games, so the tickets will be overwrited.
