    Hi there,

    today I anstalled the Homebrew Channel on my Wii and I love using USB Loader GX and Riivolution.

    Now I want to install WiiWare games on my Wii too. I know I have to get the games as .wad files.

    -Where can I get save WiiWare Wad files?
    -Is there any good tutorial on how to install them?
    -I heard some WiiWare games have to be installed on a special IOS is that true? How can I find out which games I have to install on which IOS?

    You can get WiiWare like any other roms on the internet.
    Just search for them on Google. For exemple 'Mega Man 9 Rom' or Mega Man 9 Wad'
    You should be able to find what you want.
    You can download Dolphin, a Gamecube and Wii emulator to test the wads on your PC before installing them on your Wii.

    You can install them on your Wii by using a wad manager. I use yawmm. Using it is pretty straight forward and there is a german version!

    I don't know anything about that.

    USBLoader GX can play games from any region.
