    Hi guys, new to this forum and was wondering if you can play downloaded,backup games online via your usb hdd, i have my will soft modded and i do use the online feature to google and download game covers, but never played games online because of the fear off being banned. Today i thought a try a game out and went to play cod black opp 1. whilst going though the muiliplayer mode to go online it said it needed to be update to play online, i was not sure weather it meant to update the game or the software, so i turned off the console and i thought i would ask the forum first just to be sure? :huh:

    So is it safe to do the updates the games request?

    it would appear that you did not do the latest update, but to do it on a modded system, use a wad manager and install Wii Shop channel v21 and IOS 62, that was all that was change in the last update, it didn't even change the system update number (4.3).

    looks scary for a newbie, can`t you do the updates normally or is to dangerous?

    The Call of Duty:Black Ops for the wii require you download an update for the game, not the Wii system. So you will not have to worry about it. The only reason you need to download the update is because of the patching(though it has not received a patch in a while) it uses to go online. It will not affect your Wii at all. Well it make you have less save memory but eh =p

    Edit: Same goes for MW3 for the Wii, it will ask you to download an update for the game as soon as you go to online.

    I've recently started playing Conduit 2 from a backed up copy and it works well, it asked to be updated the first time I've been online and I did. 7-8h of online multiplayer later, everything seems okay.

    if you only ever modded your wii once a while ago i would suggest you use modmii to mod your wii assuming its a never been modden that way , without having to explain to you step by step here , you will if you follow the guide be totally upto date with mods and good to go for playing games from your USB HDD , also the usb loader will download covers for you and display them.

    As long as you don't cheat online, you can game just fine. If you're caught, you'll get a permanent ban.

    YUP, even the needed update for some game to play online are enabled without any hiccup.
    COD series, Conduit, PES etc. DO NOT CHEAT.

    hi guys, about 5 months ago i brought a wii (black model) and i used the letterbomb softmod on it, and its currently on 4.1E.
    my questions are related to online play, do i need to be on 4.3 to play games online (mario kart and that etc.)
    2. do you download updated when the game says it required update to run (i did it with skyward sword with no problems but if other games ask should i do it?
    3. if i do need to update to play online, how do i do it? (softmodding wii isnt my strong point ive done it more easily with a PSP CFW)

    no there's no need to be on a higher sm.
    disc updates come from discs, has nothing to do with online play.
