    I'm just curios, along with a lot of others i'm sure, to see who has taken the risk of installing the hacked virtual console games.

    Just a simple poll

    Thanks for your input.

    I did, and for my sake I put the wii connect 24 off. Anyway i don't think that nintendo will do something such as bricking your console.

    There is no big risk. Just uninstall the vc games if you connect to the wii shop, that's all. Nintendo can't see what was on your hdd.

    I think i will, but first i'll wait a week or so to see if there's some serious consequence or not. Speaking of risks, what known risks are there actually? Haven't read all the topics about it but i heard that putting hacked vc games leaves a ticket or something which nintendo can trace or something? But only if you go online on wii shop, or is it the same if i go in on the internet browser or weather channel etc.?

    In the beginning Wii Modchips like Wiikey and Wiinja were also full of risk. Nintendo already could have done a lot of things to stop them, yet they haven't. The same thing with these virtual console things. They are way less worth than those Wii Games everybody is downloading. So I think nintendo will stop the pirating of wii games first instead of these VC games.

    Thats true, although because of the wii Points system it may be eaiser for nintendo to track users of these hacked games, and therfore it may be easier for them to just ban these wii's hoping to send a msg to piraters.

    I don't know yet, i think its still a bit to early.

    How'd you know it's entirely gone after deleting it?

    I'm fine with emulator discs at the moment...gonna download Majora's Mask the very instant it gets released, though [​IMG]

    when you delete it with the wad unistaller, it deletes it completly along with the ticket, so all traces are removes from the wii.

    And I'm sure that Nintendo can't actually see what is on your Wii.

    Since no transaction details are transferred to Nintendo when installing a *.wad, there should be no risk at all, even if your Wii goes online.

    Well, I chose to not go online anymore. I don't see why I need to. There's no wii game I want to play online anyway. So I just don't go online. 100% worries. What do I miss? Nothing! And if that is the only sacrifice for playing pirated games safely, well so be it.

    No point for me, I prefer portable SNES etc. on DS and there are better versions of the VC N64 games out, eg 1080 and mario kart

    There is no risk.

    The wii hasn't got a hdd. And you don't need to uinstall them, i connected to the wii shop with a few hacked vc games installed.

    Taken the "risk"
    If you just turn off wiiconnect24 then nothing can happen.
    Nintendo cant access you're wii if you have it disabled because that would be a breach of you're privacy and thus making the attained "evidence" not usable in a court of law.

    It's all about the technicalities what we call the law [​IMG]
