    So um, I was wondering if anyone could help me out with setting things up on my wii, I had no problem with these kinds of things before but I haven't touched it in a year or two and I'm a bit out of practice.

    I've had USB Loader GX on there for a while and it works pretty splendidly, I use it to launch games from my 500GB external USB. However, I don't really know how to get wiiware games and virtual console games to work without installing them on the wii itself

    Oh, and I can't seem to get super smash bros. brawl to work for some reason, I tried redownloading it several times and had the same problem so I don't think it's a broken file, it might have something to do with the fact that it's a dual-layer disc but I could be wrong

    Any help would be appreciated, I can add more information if needed, sorry if these are stupid questions or anything

    WADs have to be installed in order to run them. You have several options there, you can install them onto an emuNAND, install them directly on the Wii's NAND or install them on the Wii then move them to the SD card where they can be launched using the SD card menu in the Wii Menu.

    Smash Bros should work just fine, what cIOS are you using? (version and base IOS)

    I'll try setting up the emuNAND stuff in a minute, thanks, and I'm running IOS236 v65535, but I'm not sure that's the problem since the file itself won't transfer to the drive through any WBFS manager type-program, I think the file was split into two or something and it won't load both

    EDIT: So it is just one file, RSBE01.wbfs, and I also tried the Japanese version just to be sure. Neither worked, Wii Backup Manager came up with the errors "Transfer failed" and "Read disc failed". I'm having trouble figuring out what the problem could be
