    I have done quite a bit a searching and tried a few apps but I can't find what I need.
    I do not have a wii mote, sensor bar, or classic controller so I can't access the data management from the wii menu, so what I am looking for is a homebrew app the will let me delete save files from my wii to clear up blocks.

    Either that or a way for me to have my wiiware games read their save data off of the sd card I use for homebrew, specifically FFC: My Life as a King.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    Have to ask, how were you planning on playing the game or using your Wii at all without those things?

    If you have a gamecube pad at least and bootmii installed as boot2, you can launch homebrew channel directly. Then use Savegame Manager GX.
    Else, you have to use your psychic powers to control your wii.

    The wiiware game in question can be played with a GC controller. The USB launcher I use, and Homebrew channel can also be used with a GC controller. Every game that I play can also be used with a GC controller (I don't play many actual wii games)

    I should have mentioned that I tried Savegame Manager GX but I couldn't find a way to delete any save data only make copies of it onto the SD card, however just having the save data on the SD doesn't enable the wiiware game to load save data from the SD card.

    How do you not have a Wii remote though?

    You can use Wii System Menu Player.
    It's a clone of the wiii system menu and you can control it using GC controler.

    If you have bootmii or priiloader, you can autoboot on it

    I have had the wii since launch, and over the years my younger brother ended up breaking all the wii remotes, and we never really played it all that often to justify replacing them (That and I only ever used it to launch my game then change controllers). But now that I am in the middle of nowhere I find myself playing the wii much more.

    Thanks I will give that a shot when tomorrow morning comes and I can get on the TV.

    IIRC, AnyTitleDeleter can remove Wii saves, but be extremely careful using it, it can brick your Wii if you mess with things that aren't saves...

    I tried this but it never detected any of my saves, or was there something I was suppose to do after it loads database.txt I didn't really notice any instructions for it besides put database.txt in the root of the sd card.

    EDIT:
    It doesn't work because all of the AnyTitleDeleters only work with wii remote.

    Also I tried Wii System Menu Player while I had access to the data management it would let me move/copy/delete and so didn't work.

    Anything that could clear up blocks on my wii would work.

    EDIT 2:
    Using DOP-Mii WiiBrew Edition I was able to remove the internet channel and clear up blocks.
    Thanks for the help everyone!
