    I have hacked my wii. I want to download wii games now but with everything written out there im totally lost. Like why should i get an emulator when the wii will play the WADs without them? And i can find some games i wanna get. But they are in like 40 parts on rapidshare? how do you go about that? im just lost when it comes to putting games on my wii if they arnt one solid WAD file. Can someone just break it down for me

    Please and thanks

    Do you mean games for wii itself (ISO) or Virtual console/Wiiware (WAD)?

    The "40 files" you're referring to are rar files. Download and install 7Zip on your PC (or Winrar/Winzip, but 7Zip does the same job and is free). Right-click the .rar file you downloaded, select extract. 7Zip will now scoot through the files and rebuild the ISO. Then you can delete the rars.

    (In case you're wondering why the ISO is split into multiple parts, it's so that if part of it is corrupted you only need to re-download the corrupt file.)

    I suggest that you take a look at this. Searching can do wonders.

    thats why im asking bc i have done some research and all it did was contradict one another. So the ISOs that are in parts is there any way to put them back together or can i play the games part by part. i just cant seem to find the answers im looking for

    ISOs are big files, they're normally split into parts, in your case... 40... (That's a damn lot) Once you've downloaded all 40 parts, they should be rar or zip files, place them in a folder, highlight them all and click extract here, you should get a ISO file in the end, then burn the ISO file to a DVD+R/-R at half the speed of what your disk supports, then play it on the Wii through NeoGamma or whatever loader you want to use, if you're using a HDD you'l have to format the drive to WBFS format and then put the ISOs on it.
