Play backed-up Wii games

Fun & Games Technology

If you’re prone to scratching or loosing your Wii games, there’s a way to back up your games to DVD and play them later. An alpha copy of Wii Backup Loader was leaked to the public a while back, and combined with the hack to enable your Wii to run homebrew, this will allow your Wii to play burned DVDs without a modchip.

Instructable user thundaboy1047 put together a guide for downloading and installing the necessary software.

    This is the kind of thing that makes Nintendo try harder to block homebrew. While its good to be able to get backups of your games, this was pretty much ment for piracy, making it harder for the legit homebrew devs to actually get some work done
