I've been out of the Wii hacking/homebrew loop for awhile now, so I'm coming here first to see how much I have missed. I just picked up Epic Yarn and want to play it tonight on my SoftModded Wii, but remembered there might be some AP protection or forced updates on the disk. Does anyone know what IOS I need to update to get it working on my Wii?

Running 3.2U. Last game I got played on it was Ghostbusters, which required a few IOS updates to be installed (been so long I don't remember which).

As dumb as this is going to sound, is there a homebrew app that auto downloads and installs those IOSes?

Edit: I actually made a mistake. Last game I played was Monster Hunter Tri. Not sure if that means I dont need to update any IOSes or not; Thought Id mention it.

GeckoOS.

If you put in your disc and start it through GeckoOS it will install the needed IOSes

I think I remember doing that with Ghostbusters. I'll give it a try as I think i have GeckoOS installed. Will need to update most of my homebrew, but that shouldn't be too hard. Thanks all. If GeckoOS doesn't work I'll try pimp my wii(snico1995).

    Thought about one of those but I don't really use hdds like that

    Does it cap out at a certain tb
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.

    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    install done
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    start setting up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    the setup is taking too long
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    So you give up already? If you just want to just play games, not setup for game covers, details, etc; then just use PC emulators alone by they self. Example "Nestopia" or "Project64", etc
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Couldnt finish setting it up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And if you ask i downloaded it from steam
