Games day today
- Once again, a great success with a huge turnout and lots of stuff going
on. Lots of old faces (hi Ryan) and some new faces (hi Sergio), not to
mention a few younglings bouncing around.
Once again, huge thanks to Nick and Matt for organising. It's great to
see the meeting chemistry working so well after the fallow years.
And a special mention to Chris for coming so far again.
- Sorry to resurrect an old threat, but I'd just like to clarify that by "they do not seem too difficult to install if you have some electronics and/or soldiering experience" I meant "do NOT try this at home if you don't know what you are doing" :)On 14/12/2007, Todd Brayer <VolCanon2@...> wrote:
I would recommend against trying to solder something if you dont know anything about it, as you could easily brick (video gamer's term for "make unusable") your Wii. I dont know anybody in Japan personally, but I believe most stores that stock the mod chips will also do installations for an extra fee. A lot of the pirate merchants depend on repeat customers so they are less likely to burn you than a huge store like yodabashi (that is, if they sold and installed modchips ha ha).

Subject: [JIGG] Re: OT: WiiI bought a mod-chip in HK and tried to solder it myself--was not able
to do it. I'm actually looking for a provider in Japan to do it for
me if anyone knows of such a shop/person.
