    Hello.

    I'm considering getting a Wii with a bootchip. I'm thinking about getting the Wiikey chip.

    About the backup games, what should they be burned on ? DVD-r, DVD+r or ... ? And if you have a modded Wii, can you burn the Gamecube games on "normal" dvd's, instead of the small ones ?

    I don't have a wireless network, but a normal ADSL connection through a RJ45 (I think it's called) wire. Can I go online on the Wii with that ?

    Is it possible to play backup games online on a modded Wii ?



    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    1. DVD+R and DVD-R should both work, not sure about RAM but nobody really uses them. Yeah GC games burn to normal DVDs, you can even burn multiple games to make use of the extra space.


    2. You can buy adapters to go through network ports, not sure about rj45 but apparently there is something:

    Following links and stuff will drag up this:

    Edit: Apparently this model does not work any more.


    3. Yeah, nobody that I have heard has had anything happen.

    2) Wii Lan Adapter straight from Nintendo's online store is 24.99 + $5 ship. No worries about OEMs switching chipsets on you just to save a few bucks. [​IMG] I've got it, it works fine with a DSL-connected network.

    Thanks for the answers [​IMG]

    Fast6191 :

    Is it possible to burn multiple Wii games on one DVD-/+r then ? Or is it only GC games ? And how do I burn multiple GC games on one disc ? In different DIR's, ISO files at root of DVD-/+r or ... ?

    Thanks again [​IMG]

    Dopegod, hopefully this thread can answer some stuff:

    Only GC games can be made into multiple game discs, Wii games are signed and that would break the signing.
    As for how, there are a few ways (I think there was even some mac tools appearing at one point) but this app is one of the most frequently used:

    It takes images and spits out one to burn.

    A simple update would not change region compatibility, it may however be the original test failed somehow.

    Multigame discs is where the game is spread over multiple discs which as I recall is something that can not be made into a "multi-game" disc.
