thanks!! :thumbsup:

Once chipped what does it allow you to do?

I am a complete n00b at Wii modding.

Can you then take backups of your games and play them through the Wii? This would be handy as my son keeps ejecting the discs and throwing them round the living room! He loves pressing buttons!

yeah, you could also download the games and play them.

If you chip your wii can you still do everything the same as normal (play online etc). I heard that you couldn't play games online with a modded console...

and, I bought my wii on the day of release making it one of those "easier to mod" ones. is that gonna be any different? ...maybe i shouldv'e looked at the website first.

where do you live? as i know someone in brighton who would gladly do it for you aswell as games....

Ok, received my wii-clip + D2C chips this morning, came with a tri wing screwdriver also. I followed a video guide on how to take the wii apart... up to the dvd drive, because the dvd drive is where you install the chip, not the wii's motherboard.

I gave the clip a firm press over the chip on the dvd drive, and cover the D2C chip with the provided piece of card (covers the chip so that no contacts touch the metal plate, making it short out).

put it back together, tested a game that I previously backed up and works fine.

can u still do the online updates and everything?

is there any wii chips for less than £45?

can't afford that for like 2 weeks

it asked me to update as soon as i put mario kart in, thought what the hell, it updated and still works fine.

Got it on release date, or maybe 2-3 days after...anyway, it's an old wii.

i'll have a look around for a wiikey and reply here ^^

Sounds great. Will these fit any wii?
I have an early one (bought just after launch) so wanna make sure it will fit mine. DO they provide the video guide on CD or something?

Thanks

suddenly became interested but one question: D2CKey or D2C Pro? Or even Argon?

mines a D2C chip which I have fitted to 2 wii's (one for each) tested a recent game (mario kart) works no problem

Whats all this WiiBrickblock stuff then?

So what happens when Nintendo send down a block on chipped consoles... surely that would be a case of throw your £45 chip away.... and start again

Fwibble... I would be cautious talking about doing jobs for your friends as it appears UK law doesn't look too kindly...... see : g4tv.com/the…tml

Say you imported a game and backed it up, so not to scratch your original disc, and realised that you the disc you had bought wasn't a PAL version.

The Wii-Brick blocker patches your backup iso, so that your wii doesn't ask you to update your console.

What I believe happens is, if you get a region locked game and play it in your serviced wii, it will try to update it with the wrong countries update, causing it to brick

odd to quote myself, but just wanted to point out that, that sounded like **** even as i was typing it

Cheers. Pm me or post here.

if there were i doubt you'd get a direct answer of where to buy them from, through a HUKD thread.

the backups should come from your original discs

Someone posted a site here a few weeks back.

i bought my wii clip and D2c form [url]www.osctime.com[/url] for £34.99 will post when i recieve it.

and you can buy backups from here [url]www.wiibackupcentre.co.uk[/url] £3 each

ooooo im very tempted for this price!

im guessin u need to get the wii screwdriver seperate?

Also anyone know if this chip is good for the newer wiis only brought mine a couple months ago thanks!

Anyone know a good installation guide. I cannot find one.
Cheers

*cough - from what i've heard it works with recent games, like okami, think i may buy a component cable for SSBB know it works but I need to play it at 480p due to the NTSC and not 60hz pal

follow ]this up to 5:55 then install the chip and put it back together

How do you install the chip though. Cheers for the link but i could take apart.

Oh and is osctime reliable? Looks good!

the wii clip is easy to install all you do is press the clip over the correct chip then put it back together...

so i've heard

yeah but what is the correct chip? That's what i need

depends really on your console I bought the D2C chip with clip (pre-soldered) which works fine

Yeah that is what Im going to get but how do I 'install' the chip.
I have no idea.

Definately a Wiikey for you then. Work fine with every single game, … Definately a Wiikey for you then. Work fine with every single game, easily updatable for future games, we've never had a problem, and it works without even needing to use the config disk and set it up.



So what Will I need ? A Special screwdriver ? Reccomend any companies ?

Thanks, Will leave rep !

So all I would need to chip my Wii would be the Wii Clip V3 + A screwdriver ?

Or would I need a wiikey too ?

Thanks for the help !
