I'm new to the wii scene and I don't understand why all the apps under homebrew just don't come with a wad version so you don't need to go through the homebrew channel? Then I read that VC wads can be detected by Nintendo so maybe that's why people don't install wads on the sys menu b/c the big N can detect it? Either way - is there a safety issue with installing wads? I know they can brick if they're not good but besides that - also, if I go online with the usb loader, can the big N detect like MS does (or could) on xbox live? thanks guys - this place is really awesome. A ton of great info!
