    let me find a sign...
    So is it?

    Im frustrated because i cant install that many wads, due to the wii memory being so crap..
    So it would be nice if you could play the wads without having to install them etc..

    So is this possible?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    download the emulators and store the roms on an SD card, less channels, more internal space.

    as for wads. no, you can only run DOLs and ELFs off the homebrew channel apps.

    You can run wad manager from HBC though... and leave the wads on your SD card. This lets you easily install/uninstall them as required.

    Thanks for all ya replies [​IMG]

    I suppose ill just have to wait, for nintys extra-memory whats-a-ma-jigg xD

    Btw will this new memory thing let you play the channels, or will it be like a sd card, you can have channels on there, but you cant boot them without copying ot the wii memory..

    Thanks again [​IMG]

    There is no nintendo hard drive coming out. All the things you've heard about a nintendo hard drive for the wii are RUMOURS
