I managed to get the Homebrew Channel up and running, using KongsNutz' 4.0 guide.

So after installing IOS this and that (as you can tell, I'm a Noob) all was well.

However, I tried to install a few Virtual Console WADS (Games I own on Cart anyway) using WadInstaller.

It installs the Wad and on the System Menu, It has the Game banner but when I select it it says something along the lines of "Can't open this channel".

So I figure it's a region problem. I "Free the Wad" to the PAL region, but now when I select the game, instead of "Can't open this channel" it just freezes on a Black Screen and I have to hard reset.

Any Ideas? Cheers.

What games are you trying to install and what region are they? Did you download the WADs or make them?

The games were Donkey Kong and Super Mario 3. Both NES.

I downloaded the WADS.

Ok this isn't because of the region. did you have your IOS 60 properly patched? and for that matter it may be that the IOS they are trying to load from are missing. if it's neither of those then you have bad wads and are lucky the wii didn't brick.

I believe it's properly patched. As I said, I followed KingsNutz' guide to a T.

I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong.

Also, when I'm installing the Wad, WAD Manager prompts me to select which IOS version to use. I've no idea what this even means and I always leave it on IOS249 which is the default setting.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
