    I can't say for sure, but i stumbled across this video by linkinworm not long ago, and it seems legit, i personally cannot see any reason too say it is fake, looking at his other vids this is more than likely not fake, no fades or cuts...... what do you guys think?

    Hmm. I've heard mixed reviews about this linkinworm guy. He's been pretty helpful to me in the past. I think, maybe it was someone else o.o Who knows, could be real.

    also, don't get your hopes up. since the bushing's letter about the exploit, there have been countless fake "iso/backup loaders"

    edit: sweetness [​IMG] oh and btw i remember linkin now from his avatar/sig. he's a pretty trustworthy guy, hasn't put up false info yet. not to mention waninkoko has been revealed as the creator.

    It could be real.
    Linkinworm hasn't done anything false or anything, and at least he didn't come out of nowhere like "HEY GUIEZ! I JUST MADE A ISO LOAD-R! BUT I'M NOT RELEASING IT YET! SRY!!!"

    It seems to be real because
    - The things written in the console screen makes sense

    But still there are a few flaws.. maybe too much flaws [​IMG]
    - Green flashing in the screen
    - And the elf file loading too fast
    - Video has no sound (To cover sound sync issues, if the backup play is actually video?)
    - Button presses in the wiimote and screen do not sync well

    Linkinworm seems like a pretty trustworthy guy. When everyone was on his case a while back up the Waninkoko apps release, was he not telling the truth then?

    hi, greenscreen is just a refresh thing, the elf isnt huge, and the sound is cos my cam doesnt have speaker, if you watch my other vids you see i have no sound on them aswell, if needs be ill upload another vid, and ill try set you the camera straight and not moving about [​IMG] or ill get my mate to bring his webcam so i can use my laptop mics for sound.

    don't wii games usually throw an error on the screen when you eject a disc? At the end of the video he ejects the disc, but the game continues to run before the video ends. Also, notice that he didn't use the pointer on the screen, but used the dpad to make selections? Why would he do that ? I don't know, but to me it looks rather fake.

    He's been here for awhile. He seems okay.

    Just hurry up with that release. [​IMG]

    i didnt use pointer because u cant see the screen from that far away, thats why i went close, and no it doesnt give errors, try it your self, as long as the disk isnt being read,

    Well my first response was "it could be real" actually... Apploader + dvd read exploit + custom ios'es, it was possible..

    But your video is not perfect.. it's open to fake or not fake debate [​IMG] maybe better this way [​IMG]

    What about the first disc? Has it any actual use? Is the game especially patched to work in the backup loader? And why that chess game no one would care about ? [​IMG]

    the 1st disk was mario kart, or galaxy i cant remember, i was just showing that i cant boot backups, because i dont have a drivechip, i used the chess game because the game ISO has to be made in a special way for it to load. wii chess was about 24 megs so it was easy to work with [​IMG] hope that helps

    So, going on the assumption that your video is real. Will your method work on other Games? And when do you plan on releasing (or get pee'd off with everyone on GBATemp and 'stop' the project [​IMG])

    Whatever the case at the moment It's not ready "if real" at the minute so until concrete evidence and a whole lot less buggy this isn't anything to really jump around about.

    but if real then good going and hopefully something worth jumping for is on the horizons
