    Hmmm,
    A member with only 35 posts releases a new? version of the homebrew channel.

    Its is a .wad, so it should be installed with the wadinstaller. So the 'Remember, boot.elf in root of SD card.' sentence does not make any sense.

    Ill wait for i reliable source to post this V3 of the homebrew channel.

    You use the wad installer (included in most VC releases) to install it. It becomes a channel that lets you run homebrew without TP.

    Are you able to install VC games using this version of the homebrew channel? on previous versions you couldn't.

    yes this is going to be interesting. I have seen this for download elsewhere. Gonna give it a try and see if I can install VC games through it.

    Is this the elf loader Homebrew Launcher v0.3 turned into an installable wad?

    If it is turned into a .wad, it would appear as an VC channel, so there would be no need for the 'remember boot.elf in the root of the SD card.' sentence.


    So... probably not.

    The channel works the same way as the Twilight Hack, it boots whatever is the 'boot.elf' from your SD. The sentence is perfectly acceptable.

    Hell, an update to the Wii Homebrew Launcher is a nice addition. Especially this:

    Creating a menu accessible by the START key enabling:
    -- Back to the menu Wii

    Now if only there was a way to do that in FCEU Wii.
