    Is this odd?

    I put in my backup of ToS:DotW and it loaded up in the main disk channel.

    Yeah its the rebooter option. I have yet to run a disc that runs like that though. Apparently only certain games do that.

    I have that too, but you have to run the rebooter in order to launch the games.

    If your using channels - press 1 as the channel loads - then press B and the wii will go back to menu - you should then be able to see the game icon - doesnt work for all games , but works on quite a lot.

    You have to do this every time so its a tiny bit pointless , but great concept for future loaders.

    Thanks.

    I was playing around with the opts and etc.

    I guess it nice to have, but it's still faster the old way.

    Load up channel, start game > Load up channel, reboot, load up disk channel, start game

    essentially, yes. But a modchip is still the better option. For the modchip you dont have to worry about firmware updates, being bricked by ninty, the compatibility, the load times, and it looks more legit.

    No, you don't need a modchip.

    Thanks guys. But I dun actually like the idea of implanting modchip into my Wii as I am afraid if I accidentally brick my Wii, I can't get Nintendo to fix it.

    As your padawan I should not correct you Master, but as a Wii user, I don't want on my diary saying "Backup Launcher Channel 4hrs", so instead I use HBC and the rebooter option, so my diary says "HBC 0:01 hrs - Tomb Raider:Underworld 4:35 hrs"

    can I ask a question? Why would you delete your mii channel? Its not like it wastes alot of space and isnt crappy like everybody votes?

    All games work,as long as they are 1:1,not patched/decrypted.

    Scrubbed ones are okay tho..

    i tried the rebooter with Quantum of Solace and it worked. i wonder if there is a way to hook on initial load of the wii, or if it actually hooks the disks that is in on wii menu restart.

    EDIT: no it actually doesn't hook the individual game, i just changed out a 1:1 of 007 and put in a CODWAW 1:1 and it picked it right up. this would be awesome if we could utilize that channel via software.
