    So after the successfully rip of vc games the next step is the wii ware channel. I'm not an expert, but do we need particularly different tools? It should be working with the current tools to pack the a wii ware game in a wad file and install it, or not?

    In theory, it should be the same, since it works in the same way that the VC games do. But we won't fully know how it will work until about the middle of may.

    It'll also be interesting to see how FFCC:MLAAK will work with all the extra downloads as well.

    I've been folowing FFCC : MLAAK quite closely, and it seems, well, for want of a better word, 'incomplete', without the additional modules ...

    ... especially the up-and-coming Infinite Tower ... which sounds a bargain at 300pts ...

    Some of the WiiWare games have updates and downloadable content.. if those have some kind of verification, we could have some problems ripping them..

    I can only imagine that the real difference would be, possibly, the installation order of the games & their respective add-ons.

    I think it should work since it's almost as same as VC games.
