How to run games from USB!

Marcan is one of the hackers behind the Team Twiizers.
Totally against piracy, he is the first to find the signing bug in the Wii, the Zelda save bug, the dvd-video player for Wii, the SaveMii, and many other "discoveries" that has helped so much the Wii homebrew world.

Waninkoko is one of the first hackers to exploit the homebrew world for piracy purposes.
He created the WAD loader/extractor to make possible to pirate WiiWare/Virtual Console games, a backup loader to use copied games without a mod-chip, a region setting software, another to copy Mii to SD card, etc...

Both are active programmers; let's say that Marcan is from the "bright side", while Waninkoko is the "dark side"

Waninkoko feels very condifent in his knowledge and for this reason has been mocked by Marcan. For example, the first version of his program to change the region of the Wii, had a "side effect" of "bricking" the console; or that Waninkoko is constantly trying to "monetize his talent" by putting advertising in his programs, or reselling to mod-chip manufacturers.

Recently Waninkoko has leaked a video on youtube, where is shown an usb game loader!

Marcan has promptly replied:

Marcan has coded an USB backup loader in JUST SIX HOURS!!

After that, he derided the poor Waninkoko by saying that he is a script kiddie.

Marcan, "unfortunately", in on the "bright side", so, he won't release his loader.

"Luckily", Waninkoko, is on the "dark side" and has just released his loader... but, just in my humble opinion... the Marcan one it was easier to manage/install

 

UPDATE: Waninkoko has wrote a very interesting reply on his blog
