Comment on March 4th, 2007.

Comment on March 6th, 2007.

Well this is how it works, after he put the copy of red steel in he zoomed in on the monitor. meanwhile someone else put a real red steel disk in.

Why does everyone there there are two wii’s!? omg how slack are you people. Someone creates a piece of software to test backups on and all you can say is ‘there are two wiis’ or ‘someone took the disc out and put the real on in’ its pathetic! how about you think and maybe IT REALLY DOES WORK. stop being so slack and try and support it!

A pillar cannot stand if it’s unstable.
You don’t want to stand on top of an unstable pillar, do you?

I prefer videos that have a clear picture, with no room for doubt.
You’re so gullible that I bet I could sell you your own shirt.

It’s a scam!
I have search over a 1000 sites (thats right over ONE THOUSAND SITES) to find a solution that does not involve a mod chip free solution, and every single solution presented has been a fake! They all have one thing in common, they never really tell you how its done (whcih generally means it can’t be done), whereas the solutions which do involve the installation of a mod chip pretty much always have info on how to install the chip.

So, you two options:
(1) install a mod chip (and possibly bugg3r up your wii if you don’t know what you’re doing)
(2) buy original games

Also, on a side note…Nintendo have said that the next release of wii will not be chip-able. Apparently they have worked out how to make it crack proof (I reckon it’ll only be a matter of time before someone cracks that too!). Also, they are upgrading the proprietary code they use to encode the all games so that the new wii consols will need somekind of code from the proprietary code for the game to load (thats right, although the likes of Ubisoft write the games, its Nintendo that actually burns the discs for Ubisoft, using their own proprietary system). Check the Nintendo site for more info, but I think the days of (virtually) free games are coming to an end pretty soon!

In reply to the above comment… it has now been done, we can play “backup” wii games on a non modded wii, via a “Wii backup launcher” app, that runs via the homebrew channel.

It’s not easy, and requires a lot of fiddleing around, but it works pretty damn well.

See here for more info:

And as for the next gen of Wii’s being “unchippable” thats not entirly correct. The circuitry has been changed, so that the current chips won’t fit… but by soldering a few wires in place, it’s still fairly easy to get around.

Has anyone in here tried GameCopy Pro?
If so, is there any luck with backing up your games and playing them on your counsel as stated by the comments?

Comment on December 5th, 2008.

Game Cop Pro is GREAT for backing up games, however you still need to mod your system to play them. There is software called HomebreWare which has JUST come out that allows you to download a few files from the net, load them on your Wii SD memory card, and that’s it. It will mod your console and is compatible with the latest ver 3.4 system update.

Comment on December 19th, 2008.

how dumb, there are easier ways to play downloaded games without soldering, its just not revealed…

if u search well, the answers will be in the most unexpected place, the way i found it….

Lemme give u a clue, hmmm…… disc..
try to figure it out 😉


Comment on December 25th, 2008.

It doesn’t matter if they change the MB a WII is still easier to mod then a PS2 that required a shit load of wires to be soldered in some insane places with no margin for errors.

they have however encompassed the chip in a epoxy solution , so it may be a bit harder to solder but it’s not impossible.

This method no longer works. You need to do the Wii Homebrew Hack!

Wii Unlock Hack

Comment on October 19th, 2009.

The ONLY way to copy Wii games and play them WITHOUT a mod chip is to use the New Wii Unlock Hack. This works on ALL Wii’s, including the new 4.2 update. Will allow you to play copied and import games, plus DVD’s, without a mod chip!
