So I have to ask can I ask how to mod a Wii without asking where to go for the stuff to do it? Like can I ask what to use to do it and then find the stuff on my own?

Excellent policy change! Thanks!

My Wii U hasn't been played in over three weeks as I recently dusted off my modded Wii to play some more Gamecube games I missed originally. I run them off a 32GB SD card.

I can't believe that Star Fox Assault flew under my radar! Star Fox 64 was one of my favorite games off all time, and I owned a Gamecube that gen (not a PS2 or Xbox) but somehow I missed playing this game before. It's fantastic! Next up, I intend to finish Resident Evil: Code Veronica, the one main series RE console game (aside from 5-6....they don't exist to me) I haven't completed yet.

A modded Wii is probably the best console of all time. Access to thousands of retro titles and Gamecube/Wii games.

I won't tell you how to do it, but I will tell you all you need are some files (obtained online via google) and an SD card. It takes about 15-20 minutes tops and is pretty much foolproof.

So it is as easy as it sounds. Then that's all I wanted to know. I have a Wii the I picked up at my local Goodwill for 20 bucks and figure I would try that for giggles but it sounded too easy to me.

Yes, it's very easy!

Do it when you are connected via wifi, and most of the programs/applications that you need to install will connect to servers automatically and download everything you need (except the ROMS and ISO files of course). If you can arrange directories on a Windows computer, getting these files sorted out on an SD card will be a piece of cake. Good luck!

Tread carefully though. There are some limitations such as posting links to sites and sharing the ROMs, etc.

So now i don't have to mention that i MAGICALLY played certain games via MAGIC?

@Tasuki
Yes, it is as easy as it sounds. It used to be a bit harder some years ago (though still relatively simple), but now it's so easy to do that it almost doesn't make sense not to softmod the Wii. I won't post a link, but suffice it to say that there is one site in particular that should be your main source if you're looking to 'Brew on your Wii.

@Beetlejuice
I totally agree, a softmodded Wii is possibly the best console one can own .

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

Wiibrew is the place if you are not interested in pirating commercial games.

Freedom of the press is for those who happen to own one.

Actually, under normal circumstances this would be deemed unconstructive and against the spirit of our Rules (as it is not only an image macro, it's one encouraging piracy), so it would be edited or deleted entirely at the discretion of the moderator dealing with it. as an example of what we don't want to see happening, though, i'm letting it stand :3

Actually I paid 60 for it and got 25 dollars in OUYA credit which I thought was a pretty good deal. But yeah that is it
