    OK, this is embarrassing. Back when I discovered the twilight princess hack, I sort of went a bit nuts installing VC games, later uninstalling them incorrectly by simple removing the channel. Only later did I learn about waduninstaller, and the possibility that Nintendo can detect leftover tickets. I am now trying to track down every single VC game I installed (there weren't really THAT many, but enough to make me uncertain that I got them all) and using waduninstaller with each one.

    Is there an app that can tell me if I've got any tickets leftover?

    Thanks and I'm sorry if this is n00bish. Couldn't find a straight answer anywhere else.

    You will need to dump the Wii's Content using "FS_Dumper" onto a SD Card (must have 512MB free).

    Then using this sweet "Wad Maker" tool, you can view all the WADs that have been installed on your Wii (reads the data from the SD Card). Using the tool you make the required WADs (in your case the ones to remove).

    Then using "WAD Manager 1.3" (or 1.4), just highlight the WAD you want to remove and press the '-' button. The WAD (ticket, apps etc) will then completely be gone from your Wii.


    I'll upload the tools later on today.

    That sounds just like what I need, RadioShadow, thanks!

    So with wad manager i won't need to track down and redownload the actual wads once i find out which they are?

    Thanks again guys, I just managed to track them all down.

    One final question: is it absolutely necessary to remove all hacked VC games before connecting to wii shop, or is that just a myth so far?
    What about installing them and transferring them over to SD (i have 4.0)? Would the tickets remain in the wii memory?

    That's just a myth, though there may be issues with downloading a real game if you installed a hacked one (but why would you do that?).

    You can install and transfer to the SD card if you upgrade to 4.0 using Waninko's method of updating and NOT through Nintendo!

    Yeah I used Waninko's 4.0 update [​IMG]

    At least my wii memory is nice and tidy now. Cheers and thanks for your help!
