    Make sure you're using one of the two versions built with the Channel in mind, 3.0 or 3.1.

    This update put a pair of boobs at the top of my Homebrew channel.

    (As the applications are sorted alphabetically "Move the Boobs" has now ended up on top. lol)

    Anyhow, I love how it updated itself. The presence of rumble when you hover over applications and the fix to the Memory Card bug makes this channel oh so much more polished. As Shuny pointed out loading is also much better.

    Great work Team Twiizers [​IMG]

    Does this loads WADs (per say VC games) straight off the SD card or it is specificaly for Homebrews?

    So... It says on the top of this topic that you dont need to use the Twilight Hack, yet if i check the Homebrew channel's faq, it says i need a copy of twilight princess.... wtf???

    EDIT: N/M found out on the WiiBrew Wiki.

    Just boot your Wii and launch the HBC, then wait a bit, it'll ask you for an update.

    i was really wowed when today the homebrew channel would even update online.
    what a stunning piece of software.
    really need to thank you guys putting so much efford into this.
    boosted my having-fun-with-my-wii level about 140%

    on a sidenote a little question:

    i booted scumm via the homebrew channel, and it boots just fine, recognizes the directory with the games (doot and sam&max).
    now the thing is as soon as i start a game it refuses to do anything and boots back to the wii menu

    You may have to configure some things in the Options of your game. I had to redirect the saving path of one of my games (Indiana Jones and the fate of atlantis) because the game wouldn't save without this modification. Check the specified saving/others paths in the options [​IMG]

    i still don't really get the point of the homebrew channel.

    i have a channel for wad-installations
    and another channel for wad-uninstalls.

    am i missing anything here?

    Well I tried installing the update via the homebrew channel download, it all went real smoothly.

    I can't believe how much faster things load now, it's a big improvement.
