So I softmodded my 3.1 wii a little while ago with the guide I found on this site(wont let me post the link because of my post count). everything works fine except for a few issues. first is i cant access the homebrew channel. i can get into the channel's menu but when i click to browse it says its returning me to the HBC. it also said something about checking codewii.com and when i did, it had an internal sever error, so maybe HBC is offline? next is when i tried to play my PAL version of Smash Melee, the screen went all fuzzy and turned black and white(this did not happen when i put in an NTSC GC disk in). WTF? Do I need to hold a button or some shiz? also, ive been reading about these new security measures coming out with new super mario bros wii. do i need to dl a file for this game to be played(as well as all future releases)? and if i do, do i just upload it to my SD card? and finally, can someone point me to some FREE software so i can backup(copy, not get torrents and burn them to disc, seriously i cant figure out how to copy my wii games to dvd >.<) my library of wii titles? thanks a bunch if any/all of these questions can be answered.
