    if i run Starfall on a chipped Wii and enable the skip update option, will the program skip updates in the Wii Disc Channel?
    sorry if this is a dumb question but i have never used Starfall and i don't really know much about it.

    Yes it will skip the updates. Therefore i have to run games like Animal Crossing with GeckoOS.

    If it says "skips update", it skips updates lol XD I know, I was confused the first time too. The warning screen for starfall in the beginning when u start it told me to press b+2 or something. The words were way out, my screen was too small. Took me about 15 mins for it to work. lol i felt so dumb X)

    It skips all updates from disks.

    Also, is it just me, or do you have to press B+1 instead of B+2 when you are starting Starfall up?

    why would you need to run Animal Crossing through Gecko?

    you probably have to update your IOSs. i am not sure, since i have a chipped Wii and don't use a backup loader, but once i updated my ISOs i had no problems running AC through the Disc Channel. anyway, i don't think this has anything to do with Starfall. i could be wrong though.

    Starfall can work on a chipped Wii... I have it running right now..

    here's how the disc update thing works with Starfall...

    Disc asks Wii if it has IOS9000 (just for an example). Wii tells disc, "why no, I don't good sir", disc says, UPDATE MoFo!

    with Starfall --

    Disc asks Wii if it has IOS9000, Starfall holds a gun in the small of the Wii's back and tells it to play along and no one will get hurt. Wii tells the disc, "ya-ya-ya-yes, I do" while blinking in morse code "HELP ME". Disc says thanks alot, here's your game.

    I have a Wiikey. And yeah, that is what i think, you dont have the needed IOS. But GeckoOS forces the Game to use an older IOS.
    But that is only an theory from me.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    If you actually read the lengthy disclaimer, it tells you the correct button sequence to press.
    This is to prevent people of lower intellect that just look at the bottom/skip the readme+disclaimer and install away.

    When doing something as intricate as patching the system menu or "modding" the internal components so they do something they weren't supposed to do,
    you think that people would be more aware of the risks and understand what they're about to do. Those are there because there is always going to be a minuscule chance that the Wii might brick. People who don't read those and don't comprehend the consequences(good or bad) they're about to inflict onto their Wii come bawwwwing back here saying "DIS PRAGAM BRIX MAI WII DUM PRAGAM IZ DUM" and so on.

    Take the time to read those things you fools.
