In a vein attempt to clean up this messy section I've created this thread to guide the newbies. I hate to "lay down the forum law" here but I feel that this must be done, even it it just stops one or two questions being asked again and again.

If you have a question try looking HERE for a guide, it may save you time & will probably stop people moaning at you. If you don't see what you want then try using the "Search" button at the top, make sure you spell everything correctly.

If however none of the above helps you, makes sure that when you post a question that you include all the information that you can and that the title of the post is clear and not just "OMFG I NEEDZ TEH HELPZ!!" otherwise people will just ignore you.

Also make sure that you are posting in the correct sections, Wii hacking is for hacking and hacking only.

Don't post questions about homebrew that isn't to do with running Soft-Mods, Virtual Console or WiiWare. Questions about certain homebrew games, audio/video players or emulators should be posted in the Homebrew section.

Also if you are looking for help and no one replies to your thread, give it a day DON'T BUMP YOUR THREAD! Double posting isn't accepted here outside of the Edge of Forum and its against the rules.

Most of all please have fun here.

Thats a great idea.
Since the backup launchers came out, the number of posts in the wii hacking section went up by 1000%

This thread should be 'force fed' to all new members for the first week after registration.

Really hope this helps to get this section (re)organized some more.

Homebrew Starter's Guide

I think we should add this into your first post in this topic, Hadrian.

It's all about terms and what is what. I think it's useful for all of the noobs.

This guide (by me) is created days ago, and got sunk by the mass of topics. Few days later, a wanderer came asking "How do I play wiiware vc wads?" Which is explained in the HSG.

So, please!!
