    I just got into the wii scene after a break. SO much has happened.

    1. I got the wii .wad files and installers and everything but when I install I do not need the twilight disc right? ( I have a wiikey).

    2. Whats the difference between wiiware and wii vc? I have both but they are wad's?

    3. What is the homebrew channel and why do I need it?

    4. After installing wad do I just click on the channel and play?

    5. Any tuts on installing wads w/o twilight and with modchip?

    1. Typically, you do. There is a way to do it via having them on a DVD, but the TPH is considerably easier.

    2. WiiWare are original games, and Virtual Console are classic games emulated. Both are installed via WADS.

    3. Easiest way to install WADs. Use TPH to install it, then you'll never need it again.

    4. Yes.

    5. That, I can't help you with. As I said before, TPH is considerably easier, plus you don't have to waste a DVD if you own a copy of the game, or can at least rent something.
