    Hello I've been trying to hack vc games for a while now figuring out the where the encryption code is and so on but I can't figure out where it is i have been able to copy a VC game I got on my pc from another wii by hex editing it but when i try to run it it freezes please help?Also I have read that you can copy the game over but it won't load up without you purchasing it but there must be a way to hex edit it so that you can load it.

    He's right! It's so simple! Hex editing! Duh!

    And your English is way too incoherent for someone showing the US flag.

    Just because you're from the US, doesn't prevent you from being an idiot [​IMG]

    LOL. Wow! You were able to do it RIGHT after some people made fun of you, and you didn't even get mad at them? That's REALLY good luck! I think you should refuse to tell ANYONE how you did it, just to get back at them! Yes, that will teach 'em!

    Hmmm..This sounds complicated. So, the steps are as follows, if I have this right; change something.

    I can't get over how stupid this thread is. Each file is Signed. Editing a file with a Hex editor will break that signature. Good luck "Hacking"

    Wunsick yes that is true that each file is signed but if I got one game to work on my wii that wasn't originally from my wii than their must be a way to do it with other vc games.

    Yes! And then, after announcing a "break through" that you "can't remember how you did", you should totally ask for help from people with hex editing knowledge because you don't know much about it. It adds a shiny coat of authenticity to your story

    If what you're saying is true ([​IMG]) then just HexCompare the original and the one you editted.

    Open one instance of Hex Workshop with the original game

    Open another instance of Hex Workshop with the modified file

    ???

    Profit!
