I mean, if it has to be played on the Wii it was downloaded from, wouldn't the only difference between my game and someone else's be like, 1 line of code with our unique Wii ID code in it?

So couldn't we just find that code, change it to ours, and load it to an SD, then copy it to the Wii? That wouldn't even take a modded Wii.

I'm sure this has been thought of before, so I'm wondering what else is going on that is preventing this.

The files are encrypted in a manner that changes about 90% of the file. If someone could decrypt them, they could see the one line that's changed, but as of now no-one has done that.

It's in the TODO list of Trucha Signer... Let's hope it will be in the next version

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
