I have successfully softmodded my Wii with the twilight exploit (on 3.3U firmware). It has the homebrew channel and backup loader but I think my softmod is an outdated version. I have to go to the homebrew channel and click on WiiGator Loader to play my backups and I need the SD card in my Wii at all times. Is there a way to not need the SD card in the Wii and have the backup games load directly on the Wii without having to go to the backup loader ion the homebrew channel? I've searched this forum but not sure which instructions to follow so if someone could shed some light that would be great... Oh and will I (no matter what) need to patch my games to play on the Wii? My friend had a bunch of games from his old WiiKey modded Wii and gave them to me but none worked so I ripped one and patched it, reburned it and now it works. And final question, are there emulators anywhere I can use to play SNES, Sega, etc on the Wii? And if there is will I need an SD card to load those onto it or can I burn them onto a DVD and use them? Please feel free to PM me if you are not allowed to post certain replies, any help is GREATLY appreciated, thanks!
