    Alright so after downloading quite a few wads from newsgroups, i stupidly installed them before checking what region they're from. With most being PAL my NTSC wii couldnt do a thing lol. So i decided to delete them using the wii channel manager.

    Then i went looking online and found out theres a .wad uninstaller application out there.


    1) Whats the big difference about deleting the channel using my Wii vs using the wad uninstaller?

    2) Does this mean that for my wii, nintendo will see traces of my illegit wad installs?

    3) Will formating my wii internal memory make all of these traces disappear?

    I just got my wii, so i can live with killing all my save files.

    Gambia, The
    it leaves behind the "bad" ticket files, even a format doesn't remove those.

    1) It doesn't remove tickets.

    2) Yes, tickets say to Nintendo that you've got a particular software on your Wii, and if it will even decide to make a check against your WiiShop account, it could easily detect that you haven't downloaded it from there.

    3) I can't really remember.

    Don't worry, IIRC, there's no need to format, just reinstall the wads and then uninstall them with WAD Uninstaller [​IMG]

    use the AnyTitleDeleter. because my wii is not connected to the internet, i just delete channels from the data screen, i can just remove the tickets later if something happens.

    wadmanager can delete the tickets without the wad installed as lond as you have the wad in your folder

    Thanks for all the replies everyone. i really appreciate it! [​IMG]

    would it be safe then to load up both my PAL and NTSC wad files onto my sd and then simply use the wad manager to clean up my wii entirely?

    I actually think uninstalling sucks, because it also deletes your save information. If it's a game that you plan on playing again, definitely don't use uninstall.
