    emuNAND

    Try ShowMiiWAD Mod to create an emuNAND and add your wiiware there. Don't forget to enable it in ULGX.

    Interesting... I think that SMW mod may be newer than the version that comes w modmii

    Incredible people are still updating stuff to hack the Wii and run stuff on it.

    Anyway due to stormy weather I am having to wait to see if I have the same problem while running games from the SD card instead of a USB stick.

    Yes, that might be a good solution if you do not have a hard drive. As long as you are on system menu 4.0+ you can also use large SD cards.

    I use 128GB, 256GB & 512GB SDXC cards. I have quite a few games on my SD card for when there is not a hard drive attached, that way I always have access to the games I want to play no matter what.

    I have three external hard disks but they are used for PC backups so sd card it is. I don't want to backup on FAT32 if I can help it due to file size and name length limitations. Besides as I use Linux Ext2 is great for external storage.

    Mostly I want to run Gamecube, Wiiware and Nintendo 64 games (How I do those?) for Wii games I don't mind burning DVDs instead.

    There are almost no reasons to stay on older than 4.3 firmware nowadays as the compatibility with bigger sd cards and other updates is useful.

    By the way what I do with my Wii saves? The Wii itself is almost full.

    You can extract it with

    - the USBLoader GX to an emuNAND (and load it with USBLoader GX of course)
    - make a Backup with Savegame Manager GX to SD Card
    - and then delete it from the Wii NAND

    @ca032769 & @raxadian, I think support for larger sd cards that comes from the latest firmwares is for official functions only (like system menu \ data management). If the SD card is being used by homebrew I don't think firmware makes a difference.

    @raxadian, soon I hope to make some fixes to get ModMii to work from your Program Files (x86) folder. When it's ready can I share with you to test?

    I've always used this one. It's pretty stable.

    Usin emuNAND for saving is possible. emuNAND has no limit, I mean it does, depends on your SD card storage limit.

    And how do use USBLoader GX , a emuNAND (and load it with USBLoader GX of course) and make a Backup with Savegame Manager GX?

    I am used to just scrub game isos and burn dvds, all these fancy new things got me confused.

    Depends on the homebrew. Homebrew that doesn't have the option to use stuff with more space coded in might load those functions from whatever firmware is running on the Wii. Or it might crash; depends on how it was coded.

    Remember, lazy programing and shortcuts are things that not only exist but happen all the freaking time.

    Edit: I should know, I used to code in BASIC.

    You enable it in the ULGX settings.

    I'm sorry, I should give more precise answers:
    You can dump your Wii NAND onto your SD card, all settings, all saves etc will be dumped. You can use this dump folder on your SD card automatically. You just have to enable it in ULGX. The dumped NAND is in a folder on the root of your SD card called "nand". You then can take out this SD card, put it in your PC, then open up ShowMiiNand 1.5.2 by Leathl (mod by orwel & Brawl).
    Go to "Options" menu and select "Change NAND Backup Path". Select the "nand" folder in your SD card. All your installed Wiiware etc will be showed in the lister. Right click on any title and you have many options including savedata etc. To add more wads to this emuNAND just right click in this lister again (even on any title, doesn't matter) and select "Install". If you select "File" you can add a wad file. If you select "Folder" you can add all wads in a folder just in a single click.

    This will allow only ULGX to read, write saves to the emuNAND. If you want to use emuNAND on normal Wii, you have to use SNEEK or UNEEK. ModMii can set up SNEEK or UNEEK for you. SNEEK is for an emuNAND on a SD card, UNEEK is for an emuNAND on USB peripherals. IMHO to select and play all Wii/WiiWare/GameCube on a single interface (ULGX) is much better. It's your choice.

    I'm pretty sure the other loaders have similar functionality

    Yeah, sorry. I should have typed "Backup Loaders". I was talking always about ULGX everytime, that's why I didn't realize.

    So out of curiosity has anyone spotted the egg added to modmii with this update?

    If you have, please just say you found it and don't say what it actually is (or at least not here) :)

    Isn't there an easy way to just have the saves in the sd card? I could do that with the old hack I had.

    Building an emulated nand is easy. But whatever "old hack" you had that enabled this was a usb loader, and they either still have the old option, I'm not sure, or there's this alternative. Best to ask in the thread for the usb loader of your choice
