    Hello there,

    Does anyone here know what safety issues there are with downloaded WAD's?
    I have the latest firmware, 3.3v2.
    And I have installed HBC 0.10, and cIOS 249 and wad manager 1.31(i think).
    Say I would install a WAD like Megaman9 or something else.
    Would it be detectable by Nintendo? Will turning off WiiConnect24 help?
    Could I ever go online after that without Nintendo knowing I had a downloaded WAD on my system? (online play for example)
    Or is it just the Nintendo Channel that sends data like that to Nintendo.
    And how about the shop channel?
    Will uninstalling the WAD help? since the Wii would record playtime on channels and such?

    All info is appreciated,

    Greets Xyl

    If your panicing like that, forget anything to do with wads, its safe, just dont update nomore until you know what the update gives and prevents, when the october 23rd update came out, i said ill update, and i did, i told what happens etc, then i re-downgraded back to 3.2 (was the first tester for downgrading from 3.3b along with wiishizza [​IMG]

    You're right, its HBC 0.9b my bad [​IMG]
    So I guess they wont be dragging me out of my bed at night anytime soon when I install a downloaded WAD file? I just want to be sure. Don't want to be banned from Nintendo internet services that's all [​IMG]
    A well, and otherwise I'll just download them from the Wii Shop.

    Stop worrying, its perfectly ok, im pretty dam sure youll have learnt not to update anymore till you get told otherwise!
    but anyway its safe enough to install trusted wads, (even wiiware games with online play are ok to use) piracy of course but anyway, you can still go into wiishop and download anything of your choosing....

    Ahhh and if youre that much of a worrier it will drive you crazy e.g.
    Do you sh*t yourself when your on the edge of a cliff looking down?
    If so feeling wary about Nintendo banning you etc lol will give you a similar feeling. hehe
