    You can't modify the game disc, it's read-only, so you'll need to run the game from somewhere else, which is not possible on an un-modded wii.

    Just look at the topic named "[Guide] Replace Zelda SS textures and models" and think a bit if its possible to edit a game iso or not ;)
    You could also take a look at Kustom Mario Kart, or all the mods for SSBB.

    If youre too lazy - Yes, you can change game content, but its not something thats simple. The Wii games seems to have quite a few checks to check the filesizes etc (at least SS), and may need hex editing to bypass.

    Oh... but those are mods and as far as i read mods are external programs that get pluged into the game to change some content such as the texture color and things, is that not right?
    +
    I am ready to learn how to make changes but from whare do I begin?

    ;)

    The patch is just a mean of providing it to the public. Editing the files means extracting them to for example .jpg (if its an image) and edit it with whatever picture program you use, then add it back to the file, compress, place on iso, and play.
    The same goes for any other file. Extract it - edit it - Import it - save - play :)

    The tools Im using is listed in the Zelda SS topic, except Im using CrystalTile2 to extract/compress the files.

    One thing to note is that Nintendo likes to place compressed files within a compressed file within a compressed file (lol), so theres a lot of extracting and replacing.

    Unfortunely I can not give you any information as to how to edit in-game text, as I work only with textures and models.


    Edit: i really recommend you NOT to burn a disc when you have changed something. Theres no telling if it will work or not. I highly suggest you use Dolphin (Wii emulator) to test the edited ISO before trying it on the Wii.
