    I'm only renting Twilight Princess, so I won't have the hack forever... so is there a way to install wads through the HBC?

    That's all? Wow, I guess all the stuff I've been reading on google for the past hour are very old .___.' It said that Wad Manager/Installer can't run with the Homebrew Channel. Do I just put it in a folder named "Apps", and then in a folder named "WAD Manager"? (And rename the elf to boot.elf?)

    erm...yeah, I'm not sure if there can be space in "WAD Manager" , so just do "wadmanager". But, yes that's it. You can have a custom banner and description to it, just go to one of the stickys.

    Nah, I'm not gonna worry about that stuff. As long as it will install all my VC and WiiWare wads, I'm good [​IMG]

    One last thing... NTSC-U consoles can't play PAL WiiWare and VC games, right? -wants to play Pkmn Snap really bad-

    You could use freethewads program, but it's not working sometimes...
    You know how to install wads, yes? You have to put them in "wads" folder on root of the sd.

    Yep, I've been reading up a lot on .wads and stuff... so I'm sort of informed. I thought it was impossible before because I couldn't find a site, but I finally found one that hosts them, so it's all good. (Even though it's rapidshare so I only get a couple downloads a day :\)

    What does injecting a wad mean? Because in the place where I get my wads, I found a couple of SNES and N64 games that say (INJECTED) in the title...

    It means that rom of the other game that wasn't released on VC (let's say Super Smash Bros. 64) is "iserted"/"packed"/"injected" into other game that was released on VC.
