    A forwarder is a channel that you install with a wad.
    It will show up with the other channels in the Wii menu.

    The only difference is that it loads a dol on the SD card, instead of having some kind of app build-in.

    So unlike a normal channel it needs the SD card inserted to work.

    Hope that helped ya [​IMG]

    Then you don't need the forwarder but the Channel for wiiflow

    Those don't need an SD card [​IMG]

    You should be able to find them in the Wiiflow topic or site (http://wiiflow.wiitdb.com)
    or else ask in the wiiflow topic to get them [​IMG]
