    For some reason today my Homebrew Browser is not working!!!! Is yours? If so what do I do? Do I re-download the bannerbomb and then the hackmii-installer thing? I am so lost. I have tried EVERYTHING.

    Before run the app, in the Homebrew Channel check the "world" icon in the botom-right corner, if it's in white your internet conection is working properly, otherwise it could be the cause why Homebrew Browser isn't working.

    Liar. You tried nothing. It was not working and so you directly went to GBAtemp and opened your 19th topic in 30 days (yes I counted them, see here: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=Search&CODE=gettopicsuser&mid=250049" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=Search&am...&mid=250049</a> ).
    How about telling us how you use the HBB? From SD? From USB? It often has problems if you don't remove your drives safely.
    Serioulsy: Stop using your Wii, just play legit games with it and stop everything else. You just spam this forum with every single problem you have. You don't even read READMEs and you ignore anything that's not a step by step guide for you. You SNES/C64/Wii64 problems could all have been solved if you read the READMEs.

    By the way, here is a list of your topics so that you can see how dumb you are:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I can't understand why people are still helping you.
    @all: This is a troll, don't feed him.

    @Xandler150

    Weather ppl want to help him or not is not your problem so do not encourage everyone to disrespect him. Another thing: the forum rules clearly states that ppl shouldn't post already answered questions and that is clear but it also states that we can't disrespect others in this case you calling him "dumb"

    If you or anyone feels he is flooding the forum the mods will take the matter in their hands not us.

    I've seen smashdude threads and post, and I tell you, he doesn't even try, he doesn't read the app specification, he doesn't use the search function, and the top of that he blames other people for its problems. Other problem with the guy is that he really give a narrow explanation about his problems, like "hey guys I turn on my Wii but I can't play SNES games", I'm not exagerating. Now you're right, people is free to help him or not, I've tried several times but it is not use. It's really annoying have the threads full of lazy questions, without mention that he doesn't even respect post something related to emulation in other sub-forum. I really think that Xander was nice enough to calling him just "dumb", she has tried help him several times now.

    I dunno, maybe you are right, it is just that I don't think insulting will help anyone. In my case if someone insults me I enjoy it an encourages me to be more "silly" and "dumb" however when someone reply me in a serious-professional manner it makes me react in a positive way, just my thought, no prob. here

    ps: I'm still laughing "PEPXI AND XFLAT" my God

    @Smashdude hehe everyone knows Superman which fits you very well. How do u feel acting like a troll (Clark Kent) and at the same time being a Hard Core programmer (Superman).

    I just wrote that I don't understand that people (or, as you say ppl) try to help him not that people should stop. You don't help too. You just try to flame, that's completely off-topic. At least I put a question in my post which could help if it's answered and gave a possible solution. But he won't ever read it as he just reads big letters clearly stating what he should do.
    I think "dumb" is a really nice calling compared to words I usually read here. Come one, this is not an insult. It's like calling a tree "tree" or a Wii "Wii"

    EDIT: By the way. This is clearly a troll. So I think it is allowed to call him whatever we want. This is just some guy sitting bored at home and thinking about stupid questions to annoy the gbatemp folks.

    I don't think smashdude is a troll... i think he honestly doesn't know the answers to any of the questions he's asking

    but yea, i gave up on him too... if any1 with more patience wants to help smashdude... go right ahead... but just read xander's signature for an example of what u will be dealing with...

    and yea, as far as flames go... "dumb" is actually being nice... especially under the circumstances... i'm sure when most of us think of smashdude... adjectives more expressive than "dumb" come to mind...

    edit: holy crap, when did my post count break 3000!!

    don't get me wrong, if he smartens up, and shows he's at least reading our suggestions and tries to research himself, I will be more than happy to help him, even if he's a little slow on the uptake.

    But creating countless threads asking the same questions, then not reading/applying any of the answers is unacceptable in my opinion.

    I will not discourage anyone from helping smashdude, anyone can help anyone they want to, that's the beauty of this forum. But, I personally, will not be helping smashdude unless I see a change in his behaviour (or maybe I'll help him if I am either REALLY bored or REALLY drunk, lol)

    @Burton, thx man, u want to start an XFlat... i mean XFlak fan club? lol, jks jks

    And I think I'll still pass on that offer, like i said, my gf would KILL me! lol, but if I'm ever in Puerto Rico u have to hook me up with a trailer by the beach [​IMG]

    haha I think I can arrange that. I know someone really cute and... can't continue to talk about that here. There are too many minors around here and I don't want them to get perverted hehehe.

    Eh... No point in answering to the OP since he won't read these and just make a new topic asking the same question... I'm sure smashdude's wireless is down and just went straight towards GBATemp to get spoon fed lol.

    lol at Xflat er... XFlak and Burton convo. Also I was quite surprised when I saw your badge turn blue today.

    LMAO, when I posted rated R I was trying to be subtle... I had to fight the urge to write X-Rated [​IMG]

    @ Burton, just because i'm not a porn star (like some people [​IMG]) doesn't mean I'm shy! [​IMG]

    this thread is awesome... the best thread smashdude has started yet (probably because he's not involved in it anymore, lol)
