    So I downloaded a WAD file that claims to be a full version GC game.....The WAD is only a MB in size....I found this suspicious and did not want it on my Wii until I knew more about it (Still fairly new to hacking Wii's lol). So if a GC game can be converted into a WAD? What is the average file size?

    Yeah...

    I'm pretty sure that's not a GC game. While they use mini-dvd's, and while some wii games drop into the hundreds of MB's (or lower for stuff like Netflix)...

    You aren't gonna find anything short of a gameboy game for that size.

    Definitely not a full GC game. GC games several hundred MB in size. Also, GC games can't be packed into wads.

    As for what it is, it could be anything. All I know is that I wouldn't want it on my wii.

    If you want, PM me the file and I'll take a look at it and figure out what it actually is. I'm kinda curious now. Do not post a link here since it may be warez.

    The WAD can be used to play Action Replay.

    You needed MIOS v4 to use AR. That's one wad file. Not all wad files contain MIOS v4.

    Got a PM from him.

    The channel has title ID REWE, uses IOS33, and has 3 app files (0.app - 2.app).

    * The banner is custom made, and identifies the channel as "re4 Wii Edition".
    * The DOL is an outdated USB loader DOL which launches title ID RB4P08
    * The NANDLoader is non-Nintendo, so either comex's or Wanin's.

    In short, it's a USB forwarder channel with a custom banner.
