    Well the title says it all...

    Can I and should I install SoftChip even if I have a modchip in my Wii?

    If yes, should I just install the latest wad and have fun, or do I also need to install a bunch of ios files?

    Sorry if this been asked before, but I'm really confused about this SoftChip thing.

    Yes you can and you donĀ“t need to install anything (if you use the HBC) you only need to set the IOS to 36 and run the game

    SoftChip is a general purpose Wii game launcher. With a modchip(or with originals) it's best to use either IOS36 or the IOS requested by the game.

    I would use R87, you don't have to use SoftChip, but you can, so why not try and take a look. And using .dols for testing might be a better idea, if you don't like SoftChip, you have a less fragmented nand then.

    Wait, what?

    Fragmented nand? That does not sound good at all.

    Any way to defrag it?

    No way to defrag it. What i meant is: You don't want to do any unnecessary reads or writes to your nand. Ok actually there isn't any danger, but doing it too much could damage the nand.

    Ok, I get ya.

    I tried SoftChip R87... and it's nothing short of amazing!

    It's exactly what I was looking for. MadWorld, and all my other NTSC games boots perfectly in 60hz.
