    What other ways are there to run hombrew or install wads with Zelda Twi Light hack?

    If you're asking because you don't have a copy of Zelda then the answer is you're SOL.

    Rent Zelda for £3 from your local rentals store and use it to install the WAD Installer.

    Ignore this guy.

    I don't remember specifically, but it might be possible to install a homebrew channel by using a trucha-signed disc. To my recollection, the trucha loophole is still open as of this writing. It might be your best bet to look into that a bit.

    I've never run TP on my Wii.
    Trucha sign any backup image with the proper wad installer .dol
    Run the disc, install homebrew channel Wad.
    Then you're good to go.

    if you want to get started in homebrew for the wii and don't have a mod chip then you do need zelda: twilight princess but after that you don't need it if you install a homebrew loader as a channel.

    Well, fair enough if you can't be arsed, but it would be a lot easier if you rented it. Would probably save you the time it would take to look into this. Though I guess you'd be paving the way for more like you... [​IMG]
    Bleh, do what you want!

    EDIT:
    Wait, I re-read the first post, and it says with the Twilight Princess Hack! Still not sure what that's supposed to mean though.

    You could always buy that zelda game. Afterall it's one of those rarely seen good games on wii.

    It's actually a fair point. I've bought (yes, bought) just five or six Wii games. Too many releases are re-engineered Gamecube games, and on the Gamecube too many were N64 games that they'd managed to ruin.

    Most of the Wiis best games are on the VC.

    Can someone at least give me a link to place which instructs on how to use hombrew without TP. Looked everywhere cant seem to find anything useful and not confusing.

    EDIT; never mind its not possible.
