    I was gonna install a game with WAD Manager that I downloaded but it's in the form of a BIN file and not a WAD.

    I have no idea how I'm meant to do this, can anyone help me out? Can I just rename it to a WAD file and try to install?

    i'm guessing it's a content.bin

    it is encrypted content. that's not a wad and can only be installed on a wii that generated it.

    You'll need to decrypt it first, which only a few of us know how to do...

    Odd. Why would they do that then?

    There are very brief instructions too:

    1. Unpack release
    2. Mount image or burn it
    3. Install game
    4. Play the game

    What exactly did you download?

    Its for the wii? How do you mount an image on the wii?

    It could possibly have the wad on the disc, for use with WAD Manager.

    Try mount the file with Daemon Tools (if you're on windows).

    If a wad file appears on the mounted disc, then just copy it off and install it as usual [​IMG]

    Odd way to do it sure, but it's possible that this is what they've done...

    Are you sure it isn't a cd-image file for the pc? Try and mount it in daemon
