Just installed Homebrew channel. The menu shows up when I press Home on game controller but then I can't select anything from the Menu with the controller. However, Menu selections work with the consol Power and Reset buttons. What I am doing wrong? Fix?

Obviously I don't know what i'm doing. I'm on the homebrew channel and get nothing but bubbles. I have 2 games loaded on a USB created with WBFS Manager (Just Dance 3.iso and ABBA You can Dance .iso) It doesn't recognize them anywhere I can see. The only thing I can get any respose to is to press 'menu' on the controller and get 5 choices: Back, About, LaunchBootMii, Exit to System Menu and Shutdown If i choose Bootmii i run into the 4 choices (and the controller doesn't work): Wii The Homebrew channel SD card Gears I can only accesst hese from the consol.
I'm stuck.

The homebrew channel can launch homebrew applications from the sd apps folder or the usb apps folder.
To launch game backups, you need an usb loader which is such a homebrew application.
You might get the modmii program for pc windows and use that to proper mod your wii.
You can skip the steps that describe installing bootmii and the homebrew channel.
Don't skip the step about taking a backup of your wii nand with bootmii.
Besides an usb loader, you will also need to install some cios. Usbloaders don't work without them.

Buy your games instead of downloading them. The people who write them need to eat to.

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    For your R4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's old but it's the best firmware out for DS stuff
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    nvm it does support mine
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
