    So I know that the Wii somehow assigns a key or something to your VC/WiiWare downloads so that they can only be played on the Wii it was downloaded on.

    Well, I installed most of my vc/ww tittles through wads and copied them to my SD card menu. And now, for reasons to pointless to explain I need to have them all palyable on another Wii. So, what can I do?

    Do the same thing you did with the first wii.

    install them as wads and move them to the sd card.

    Well, you are correct, but I'm looking for a less tedious way if one exists. You see, I have around 12-13 pages of games, so finding and installing those wads back into the new system would be a pain in the bum.

    I'm looking for a way that would involving either changing the files or changing something within the Wii so I can can just move my SD card from the old wii to the other and play it no problem.

    have you already tried just putting the sd card into the new wii and see if they work or not?

    My guess is they wouldn't but its worth a shot i guess.

    Haha, yeah. Like with legit vc/ww games being played on a different Wii, it says it cannot be played on this wii.

    hi
    have you tried with bluedump alpha2 fake signing by nicksasa. you can find in one topic her in the hacking forum. it s similar to wad creator by waninkoko, you can save your channels in the sd card and than to transfer them in an other console

    Use Triiforce, you can read all about it in its own thread.

    Long story short....

    Dump NAND
    Use ShowMiiWads and delete all the sys channels and IOS from that nand
    Delete all the Wii Disc based game saves from that NAND
    Nand is ready now and tiny
    Again use ShowMiiWads, this time to install the games to the external NAND
    On both Wiis install either cIOS 14 or 15 (not lower)
    Copy saves to the SD/USB you will use in an unencrypted format EG Waninkokos savegame manager
    Launch the games from triiforce, they will save to either SD/USB and are totally portable.

    *NOTE you need to launch triiforce from either USB or SD and have the external NAND on another devise, so you will need SD AND USB (a pen drive will do)

    This is the only way to do what you want really, but the best bit is that the saves go with the games making it even better.

    Odd, I wonder if there is an edit to the wii to be able to let us play one sd card on both wiis, besides using triiforce.

    you dont have to patch anything.


    a game WAD is made of 3 parts:
    the content
    the ticket
    the title

    you need to have the ticket and title on the wii so the content can be played from the SD card channel.
