Hi everyone, I really hate to be another one of "those guys" but even after looking around a bunch of different threads here, I'm still lost on quite a few things. I'm also not sure which information I'm finding is actually still relevant or outdated, etc. I read the few stickies listed, but I'm still not sure exactly where to start. I'm also unfamiliar with much of the terminology (like wads, nands, forwarder, etc) and I was wondering if there was a "vWii hacking for idiots" kind of guide that sort of starts from the ground up and explains the fundamentals? Honestly, any reading you guys can suggest would be very appreciated. I want to make sure that I'm as familiar as possible before I attempt anything. I was also a little confused on some of the more basic functionality of the Wii U (particularly in Wii mode), and I was hoping to clarify a few things: Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've read, while in vWii mode, the only controllers that work are the wii remote/nunchuck and the classic controllers? The 3rd party controllers (like the dualshock) only work on the emulators? And the Wii U Gamepad will display the screen, but the controls are not usable? In the "simple progress" guide, it talks about running "Virtual Console/WiiWare" on the vWii. Is that referring to the stuff you could buy off the wii store? Like old school games that they sell? Sorry if I'm completely off; I'm still really unfamiliar with all the different terminology for the wii/wii u. I was also wondering if any of you know of an up-to-date list of all the emulators available for the vWii? So far, I've read about Nintendont and I'd definitely like to give that a try, and I saw something about an N64 emulator called Not64. I also found this but I wasn't sure if it applied to the vWii or only the regular Wii. I think I'm starting to understand the "exploit" thing a little more but I'm still a little hazy on the process. The only hacking I've ever done was on the PSP and DS, and this seems considerably more daunting to a lightweight like myself. I found this guide and I guess it's one of the better methods to use for adding a homebrew channel? All in all, I'm just a little overwhelmed by all the information, and not knowing which information I need, which of it is still relevant, and where exactly to find it. I've also seen a lot of different programs mentioned like "Wiiflow" and "USB Loader GX" but I'm not really sure what they are, or if I need them. Basically, I'm mainly hoping to use the Wii U to play wii games (without needing the discs, if possible), the downloadable stuff on the old Wii store (like Earthbound for the SNES, for instance), and emulators like Nintendont and those that work well for N64, SNES, GBA, etc. If any of you could link me to some good, must-have reading to get everything up and running from start to finish -- or offer any personal advice on the process -- I'd be very grateful. And again, sorry for making another thread like this. I had so many specific questions, it was hard to find all the answers by searching.
