    So I've heard about this "pirates" bug where if I pirated over 200 titles, some homebrew bug will happen. I'm a pirate and I can't be bothered to buy originals, too pricey over here.

    My questions are:
    1)What causes it?
    2)How do I prevent it (Other than not playing over 200 games)?
    3)How do I bypass it?
    4)If I ever encounter it, what should I do?
    5)What will happen to HBC, or any other apps for that matter.
    6)What apps have this bug?
    7)Will Gecko OS (channel & .dol) or WAD Manager (.dol) ever be affected

    Told my brother about this bug, he was like WTF? So yeah, I wanna know how to stop this from happening lol.

    Also, I'm thinking about deleting a few old, not played anymore Game Titles using AnyTitle Deleter. Will that ever work?

    Marcan use to mention it, but his workaround to tell people was "format wii"
    Instead of compiling a new count version....(he's against piracy so that's why)

    It's not a bug, it's a feature by any title deleter & title Lister etc.....

    Depending on how many titles your wii has, any title deleter originally could only go up to 256, but wiicrazy has modified and compiled one with a count of 512, so it will work......

    You don't need to worry about it, also a way to clean the wii is Formatting it.....I did, but i backed everything up.

    Anyway, other apps like geckoOS and all otehrs/emus etc they work as normal!!!
    no matter about pirating that much, so DON'T WORRY [​IMG]

    Doesn't exist. Either your brother was playing a joke on you or he knows nothing about homebrew.

    So nothing will happen to HBC and Gecko OS?

    Sweet, no need to worry as I've the 512 ATD.

    Anyway guys, if you'd take a minute and search "pirate bug" you might find something.

    djdynamite123 explained it so, yea.
