Hi

I've downloaded the Earthworm Jim wad from Rapidshare and applied freethewads just to be sure I wouldn't brick my Wii. However, when I installed the wad, it appeared as Donkey Kong Country 2 (although the name did pop up as Earthworm Jim). I didn't start the game, just in case.

I'd like to know if there is a way to verify the authenticity of a wad (i.e. is this really the game it is supposed to be? which version is it? etc)

Thanks!

you only can compare the checksum (crc) of the wad files...otherwise to find out if its a injected version or not...check the emanual.arc file. if this file is modded then you have a injected version

It's an injected wad.
Personally I don't like to install wads. Especially not when you can run the games through an emulator too, like earthworm jim
