    Hi everybody,

    I'm asking you if there is a way to install wad's directly to SD card? It's very long to install over the Wii, and after move from the Wii memory to the SD card.

    Since the firmware v4 is out, i didn't found any wad manager that install to SD without the Wii memory.

    But please, explain why it's not possible (if is not)

    Basically nobody has done it because they just haven't, its perfectly possible.
    You must be the 500th person to ask this, may be you could try to make it yourself.?

    dont ask 'why' or these pages will fill quickly, it just does. BUT...
    It should be possible to make an sd wad installer app that just adds the ticket to the wii memory and the wad to the sd.
    just noone has bothered to do it as it is just a time saver and not high priority hack.
    find some coders on here and ask one of them to make if they can.
    i cant code so cant help sorry but it is a perfectly good question.

    Say a friend buys a game off the Virtual Console, a WiiWare game, and then moves it to the SD Card. So you expect your friend to give you his SD card, so you could run that said WiiWare game without having to pay for it? This was the very first thing that people attempted to do...

    here is the code that is used to install the wad:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Now we need a coder to change the install to SD (without changing the title install)...

    exactly

    nintendo dont want your friend to be able to buy a game and then bring it around your house to play on your wii (not his).
    they would much rather everybody buy the game.
    remember your gamecube, you could bring rogue squadron to your mates gamecube with your memory card... well you cant with wii, for some reason they give us an sd card for a memory card then never used it properly. dicks. money grabbing dicks.

    As far as I got it, the Channels on the SD are in a different file than .wad, right? So it isn't that easy like some think...

    God, sometimes this lazyness is amazing...be happy with what you got, and live with these problems things... [​IMG]

    I'm sure there will be an app to install wads to sd once waninkoko's NAND emulator comes out.
