you don’t need the Wii Shop Channel, all you need is:

  • The Homebrew Channel
  • Wii Multi Mod Manager
  • some obscure google drive folder full of wii titles in WAD format

this


#11

what about a channel that mimics the Wii Shop Channel and it downloads WAD’s from somewhere (ftp)?

insert Nintendo of America lawsuit here


#12

if it happens, it’s free software only.

paid content (i.e. 95% of WiiWare and virtual console titles) can’t be accessed from a channel like so because reasons.

i think it should be a thing where you can download all sorts of mods such as: Everybody Votes Channel patched for RiiConnect24, forecast and news channel patchers, HomeBrew Channel, Wii Mail patcher, and Wiimmfi patcher


#14

you can just download them from WiiBrew


#15

i know but you need an sd card and computer


#16

yeah and you also need it for LetterBomb so you would have one anyway if you have homebrew unless you FlashHax’d
