wii has downloadable content?

I mean wiiware games that come in .wad format. Sometimes they get an update, and I'm wondering if it's possible to update them.

he means WiiWare he gets from the Nintendo Shop

you would have to find a .wad of the new version dude.

which means someone would have to purchase it then dump it.

ok first of let me point out the app he is referencing is calle AUTOINJECTUWAD and its for VC and HB yes...BUT NOT WIIWARE...

auto injectuwad has a few uses:

Inject a DOL file into a HOMEBREW BASED WAD

Inject a ROM file into a: VC BASED WAD

now what you are talking about is a genral "channel update" for example if you downloaded kirby 64 cystal shards the day it was released on VC you will note an "updated version" of the channel has been released (it address some small gFX glitches) this happens from time to time and the only way to know if you got the updated one or not is by looking at the date the wad file was modified and seeing if it was dumped before or after said " wiiware fix"

this is the only way to even remotly tell if your wad is a "updated" wiiware/vc title or an original...

ALSO!
YES INDEED DLC downloadable content exist for wiiware

MegaMan 9 (can pay to DL protoman and other play modes)
Final Fantasy Crystal chronicles: My Life As A King (can pay for additional buildings,cloths,chars races ect)

so to clear things up in a simple answer to:
QUOTE said:
is there a way to update wiiware games that sometimes get a update, like my pokemon ranch?

NO.....not short of going to the shop channel and re-downloading the title w/ update or installing a dumped wad of said title....

I have a WAD file with the dlc but when i install it i cant find the dlc (Its My life as a King) all the buildings and such arent there so do i need to use this program? The Wad is full sized about 40 mbs or so.
