    Hey, did a search, but didn't find anything on this topic...
    Got my games backed up to harddrive, and i use a variety of loaders.
    My question is, is there a way so that in the wii message board it actually shows the play times of the games, rather than "Home Brew Channel"?

    ...or burn your games and play it on the disc channel.

    install the loader as a channel you mean?
    Does it work for any loader?

    no, i think what the guy means is for you to make a channel for the wii game itself, not the channel for the loader. if you run the channel for the loader, the loader use time will be registered on the wii message board and not the game you played using the loader.

    Yes, using crap/loadstructor will make the name of the game show up in the message board. But you should make note that in the message board data, it is still counted differently than if you played the game from a DVD. Games on DVD are of the 00010000 type. But in order for the channel to show up on the system menu, crap/loadstructor makes a new ID that is the 00010001 type. It is the 00010001 ID that is added to the message board data when you use loadstructor/crap. So if you uninstall the channel, it removes that data. Also, if you use the homebrew app to show playstats, it will NOT add the times for 00010000 and 00010001 even though both would end in the same ID4.

    thanks for this info. that's why i still suggested to him to burn backups and use disc channel if he is really concerned about playstats (my post is the 3rd one i think). personally not really bothered about this wii message board play times so never bothered with this loadstructor thing.
