Thanks very much, i will do! While i have your attention, the reason i want to soft mod is my parents have a wii but their always borrowing my games. I live in coventry and their in southampton, if i took a backup so they could borrow the originals - whats the legal view point on that? it just takes so damn long waiting for them to post games back to me!

It's illegal, sorry. Thing is, what you're describing isn't making a backup, it's making a duplicate that you can redistribute, which is proper piracy. A backup's got to be done only for personal use, like so that if your copy scratches to buggery, you can play your second copy instead. When you give that second copy away, it makes you a pirate. Arrr!

Plus if i were to take a copy based on what you have written i wouldnt be doing anything wrong. theres always a chance of things getting damaged in transit, scratched, lost in the post. so having a backup i could play instead.

Have you played Wii Sports Resort? The first time i did it there was a specific way of getting it to work, something to do with the Motion Plus video at the beginning, wiihacks helped me loads

What he means is you can make a copy of your own games that's legal as long as you have possession of the original the moment u send the otoh to your parents your breaking the law as you no longer have the original with you

Learn to read? Wow, what a patronizing ****. Anyway, you're clutching at straws, and I think you know it. Look dude, if you want to break the law, just embrace that fact, and go with it. If you care about the law, yes you're still breaking it by giving the genuine away and keeping the copy, since you lose your right to use your backup if you give the original away. If it gets lost after you give it away, it's irrelevant, you're still breaking the law.

Once again i see you havent yet learnt to read! ;-) Why are you taking everything i say so seriously! lol
I didnt say i was going to give them away did i? no, they will still only be borrowing the games from me.
I would have thought the situation is exactly the same as anyone taking backups of their games and lending a game to a mate to play.
Please dont insult me by saying i want to break the law, i do not want to break the law and if that means not taking backup's then i wont take backup's.

I played it through backup player. Installed Dark corp also.

If you have a black Wii, you will 99.9% need a external hard drive to play your backups from.

If your firmware is 4.2 or less, look up "bannerbomb", it's tricky, but if you have a reasonable understanding you can do it without too much bother.

Ah if thats the case i might sell up and give the games to them, thanks.

I've an old white Wii that i've softmodded following this guide.

I've done everything up to installing NeoGamma according to that guide but the real reason I modded it was to rip my own legal games to a HDD connected via USB. It mentions USB loading at the bottom but completely loses me then as i'm not sure what it is i'm supposed to do get the wii USB working with an HDD and it able to rip and play games.

Anyone point me to a step by step 'simple' guide that picks up from the point the guide I followed ends?
