    Hey guys, i was wondering if its at all possible (for the future) to stream games from a pc or a server?

    this would be beneficial for those of us who do not have the means to get an sd card larger than 4 gb or whatever size, as some games need quite a biit of space

    Sure FTP with something like filezilla its just a matter on time till someone can make it happen. I used to do this with my JTAG and extracted games and simply launch the default.xex

    Short answer: you can't.

    Long answer: NES Remix was the first game played with loadiine, because it was so small that could be streamed and played. If we could load other games, it would take a lot of time for them to load, so its better to use SD cards.
    You could wait for the 'upcoming' IOSU exploit and hope we'll be able to use USB drives. Also, 64GB class 10 SD cards can be found on amazon for less than 20$ (http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Class-Adapter-MB-MP64DA-AM/dp/B00IVPU7AO/) and smaller ones are cheaper. With a 4GB one you can play some great Nintendo games (The WindWaker, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, NSMBU ...)

    Not right now it's not. As far as we know, you need IOSU access to load stuff off USB.

    No, it's just that only IOSU has permissions to use USB. Think of it this way, we've breached the castle walls (kernel exploit for 5.3.2 and below), but we don't have access to the inside of the castle yet (USB loading of games, disabling signature checks, emuNAND, etc.).

    initially Loadiine was able to load games only over network, till later Golden45 figured out SD access through mii maker then through SSB. Now Karaoke U is supported too.

    Network cannot be used to load large game files,it would take ages to load, and it'll mostly crash a lot (So unplayable). Only NES remix was playable with that method that time when the developper was still testing over network.
