    To begin, I have a WiiKey installed and it's been working fine up until NSMB. I have decided to take the plunge and install HBC and try to get a USB loader to work. I have HBC installed and working, I have Bootmii installed in Boot2 and all is fine. I have backed up my Nand so I feel save now.

    My question after reading so many articles is... What do I need to install to have games like NSMB working on USB. Since I have HBC installed I assume I need to restore Trucha Bug which I can do from the HBC menu. I have not done this yet. Then I assume I install a USB loader (Neogamma seems to be the choice).

    Since i have a modchip, do I need to bother installing anything else? I see tons of apps etc. What should I be looking at?

    Also, for Wads. I was going to load some VC games. Are these installed on the SD Card? Is there a limit to how many can be installed. I know Wadmanager is used to installer/inject them.

    Hopefully I am not asking too many questions. I've gotten pretty far on my own but I find some of this stuff just a bit confusing.

    What about updates on the disc. Do I need to Brickblock them and how does one copy the games to USB? I assume you cannot connect the drive to a PC once it's formatted.



    Thanks for any help. [​IMG]

    Awesome thanks.

    I Restored Trucha all went fine. The last thing on the list is CIOS & Patching the System Menu IOS
    Do I need to patch all the CIOS listed (I have a modchip)
    ie: CIOS202/222/223/249/250/270 as mentioned in the guide.

    I don't exactly understand was a CIOS is. I won't mess with it if I don't have to.

    Thanks. (almost there) [​IMG]

    But if I have a hard mod, do I need to install more that just Hermes, assuming I can play backups without having to softmod?



    I just realized that I did not do the NTSC Update which says to open IOS36 and install 36 different IOS files & Shopping Channel. Shoudl I go back and do all this? DOH!

    Yes you should
    modchip should only need the latest IOS files to play backups
    Those 36 IOS's are what you need.
