Right, just before I attempt to install Gamma on my Wii using the '3.1-3.4 Twilight/Downgrade/Gamma Tutorial All in one' guide, just want to ask a few questions to clarify what I understand.

Firstly, I'm using a PAL machine, so will I be able to play NTSC-U and NTSC-J backups via Gamma? Also, by putting Starfall on and using the option to bypass disc updates (well, I'll be installing the last 3 options in Starfall as recommended), I shouldn't be at any risk of running a NTSC update on my PAL machine and bricking it should I?

And if I decide at some point I want to get rid of Gamma, the Homebrew Channel, Starfall and everything, and sell my Wii on, can I just do a system format and make it function as if I'd never done anything to it?

Thanks in advance.

Yes

No, do not update your Wii. Plus, use Preloader, it's better than Starfall

And if I decide at some point I want to get rid of Gamma, the Homebrew Channel, Starfall and everything, and sell my Wii on, can I just do a system format and make it function as if I'd never done anything to it?
No, it depends on what you did to your Wii. You have to delete IOS249 first. Then go and delete DVDX. Then do a system format.

It's more dangerous to delete rather than to install


Thanks in advance.

There's a noob section here, you should ask there rather than making a new thread. Plus, all of your questions have been asked over and over again. So next time, search

Thanks for the answers, if a mod could merge it with the Noob Thread?

One more question regarding system formatting. I'm not massively bothered about deleting every file that has been used for Homebrew/Gamma/Starfall etc. so could I just format the system and carry on running just original software from then on, offical updates and all? Or rather than format, just update to 3.4E, delete the Homebrew Channel and carry on as normal?

No, it depends on what you did to your Wii. If you just did the basics (Backup launcher), delete IOS 249 using ATD, and DVDX too (Say if you used Mplayer). Then format, and upgrade

Again said, this question has been ask multiple times, heck there's even a guide for making your wii a virgin. SEARCH next time.

I'm not asking for a guide to make my Wii a virgin, I'm asking if I either simply format it or update it to 3.4E it will be in a state to carry on functioning normally as in allowing me to play original games, play purchased VC games, not have any homebrew running and to continue making updates as and when Nintendo releases them. I've searched and not found an answer to that specific question.

Yea, but by following that guide, you'll make your Wii a virgin.

Virgin = As it was before modded.

    why would you need your candles warmed?
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    is this like a fetish thing
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Because they obviously need to be warmed
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    The person who made the image was probably just thinking of wax melts and said candles shit happens
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Although the wax of a candle could probably be melted down and repurposed with a fresh wick sometimes the wick burns out and the jar is still full
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I dont think a candle is ever going to work on there.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    no they're actually called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Thought that was a mug warmer.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    what i don't get is, if you want the smell, but not the ambience of burning a scented candle, why dont you just get an aromatherapy oil diffuser, scented candles are shit anyway they barely smell

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @M4x1mumReZ they're used for that, but they're called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't get why they would name it that.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You wouldn't melt a candle with this, as if it was too big for example then the wax would flood the holder.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    That's my theory btw
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    apparently people use them to melt scented candles instead of burning them which sounds like a very roundabout way to accomplish something

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It would be more recommended though for wax melts.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    yeah you use candles that come in jars, apparently

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You can get those small yankee candles.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They come in tiny little jars.

    These are what I am on about.
