    You need to stop acting like an ass. Theres reason more then one person are saying to chill. Did you even read those threads? There were a couple of post that only said maybe two applications. By the way him wanting people's opinion is self explanatory.

    If you have in-home router wifi, I'd strongly recommend the new mod of mplayerwii with smb support (if in windows just right click folders, go to properties and share them) as it can play shared music and movies over your local network on your tv (got a good collection of old tv shows I stream and have my tv running right into my stereo)

    There's a main page on wiibew.org but the version I use is unofficial (dvd file browsing, sdhc and network stream support) you can grab it on mediafire at http://www.mediafire.com/?qdxzxwgt0io

    As far as my memory can recollect, there should be a text file in the zip that will help you, but it's pretty straightforward. You just need to dump the main folder in /apps/, edit the mplayer.conf file on the sd card root to include your pc's ip that the shares reside on and the share name, and you should be good to go.

    Duck Hunt (the app) is kinda unfinished (and hasn't been updated in forever) and the looping title audio gets annoying as shit after 1 or 2 levels though, FCEUltra currently has Wiimote-IR zapper support, Duck Hunt is wicked better on that, plus you can enjoy Hogan's Alley and Freedom Force too [​IMG].

    wow, nobody mentioned ftpii. i use it cuz my card reader sucks and i hate needing to insert my sd card into my camera each time to copy files over. not to mention my laptop is in the other room and the battery sucks ass, i cant take this thing anywhere. i injected the ftpii dol into a blank wad. now, i have an ftpii channel (4 blocks). though, i recommend version 0.1.5 instead of 0.1.6 because, 0.1.5 is more stable. for some reason 0.1.6 doesnt boot up a majority of the time from the wii channel OR homebrew channel.

    oh, and by the way, freedom force is an awesome game. i played the hell out of it and still can not beat it. my brother and i would spend many sleepless nights playing it.

    thats my conf. just open it in notepad and modify the last 2 entries, the second to last i changed to an explanation and the last entry i left alone to what it was on my network. ip should be your pc's ip witht he share and the next part of the path should be the share name.
