I have been reading about how to create an EmuNAND on the Wii, but nobody ever seems to mention how you get the homebrew channel onto your EmuNAND, such that you can run homebrew apps on the EmuNAND. It's literally never mentioned. Without HBC you wouldn't be able to run a WAD manager in order to install a WAD on your EmuNAND, is that correct? I understand that you can inject WADs on a PC, but that is beside the point.

Is it somehow impossible to put the homebrew channel on a virgin EmuNAND? Obviously if you dumped your own NAND and loaded it as an EmuNAND, you'd have the Homebrew Channel. Is that right? Therefore it's possible to have the Homebrew Channel on an emulated NAND. But how do you put in on one if it is not already there?

EDIT: A related question - if you deleted the HBC channel on a Wii, Do you effectively have to hack it again to put it back on? That makes no sense to me. The Wii still has the ability to run whatever it likes as you could have various other channels that run various bits of homebrew/loaders etc. So what is special about the HBC? There seems to be something special about it, but I'm not smart enough to work it out.

Thanks,

Misha

LOL. Just seen this in the ModMii classic tool:


ModMii
by XFlak

EMULATED NAND MODIFIER

Would you like a Post Loader Forwarder Channel on your emulated NAND?

Post Loader aims to replace the Homebrew Channel, Forwarders,
USB-Loader with emulated NAND support, etc.

It's used to be impossible to install the latest Homebrew Channel
to emulated nands so this gained much popularity as an alternative.

Today you can use the Open Homebrew Channel by FIX94 on your EmuNAND,
just find and install the WAD using ModMii, ShowMiiWads, etc.

So there we go. I still wonder why it is the case though. Oh to be clever enough!

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.

    Not exactly 3D but the colors does pops out more
