    I just installed the pokemon snap wich is said to be released by blaze, I installed it succesfully, but when I tried to boot it I got a black screen with some spanish sentences, one of the contained the word iligal and it started to countdown from 10, so I pulled out my wii power supply.
    I don't see any harm that could have been done, but I want to be sure and warn you guys.

    Please, tell me if I just did something wrong.

    I just ran the program again to make a picture, I made a picture, but not of the full tekst, I thought it was a countdown, but it wasn't. It says something about 10 euros and the sentence underneath that says bla bla bla 250 Euros bla bla bla!

    I'll upload the pic in a second

    Sounds like this is a virus that bricked your Wii because you're a pirate.

    Anyone knows how the uninstaller works? I tried the uninstaller but it doesn't boot through twilight princess.

    Put the .wad you used in a folder called wad, then rename the .elf to boot.elf and it should work.

    Don't worry, it's only a stupid joke.

    But you should not download everything you find out there. [​IMG]

    Props to the original releaser for a good joke. Almost as great as PS3 Emu.

    Just downloaded the same thing.

    It's just someone being a smartass. I don't think there's a real one out yet.

    There could be the real one. Where do you think I got the banner from?
    I'm anti-piracy, it will never be released by me [​IMG]

    Dude it really was you? If it was, I have to say you really did a great job man, scared me as hell. But you do have a good reason:D I've got the game pokemon snap on my n64, so I'll play it on my n64 until the real release comes out.
