    Hi guys,

    just want to clarify some stuff.

    I found out that Wiiware are new titles while VC are old classic titles.
    Am I right to say that I can install any VC titles as channels OR play them through emulator?
    But wiiware can only be installed as channels?

    VC must be installed as channels, the exact same way as WiiWare. They can't be used with emulators.

    download them using the HBB (homebrew browser), than access your sd card and put the roms into the roms folder, start it and away you go.

    So the roms will be in the format .SMC or .FIG?

    .WAD formats are to be installed as channels?
