Obviously, copying over the private folder to my SD card from the zip folder named Patch 42 is going to overwrite my current private folder with things like my Virtual Console games on it.
What are the steps you take to preserve your current downloads while getting the necessary folders on to the SD card?
Forgot to add, should I just put the subfolder titled aktn into my current private>wii>title folder already on my sd card? Would then be in the same location, but with all of my VC and WiiWare folders still present in the same spot.
Thanks for any assistance.
um... what? by copying it, the folders merge. No files are deleted.
By copying it, the folders merge? Since when?
The new folder I'm trying to copy to my SD card would replace the present folder by the same name already on my SD card (I keep my WiiWare and Virtual Console games on it), since they both have the same name and that's how Windows XP works.
I'm wondering what the correct process is to handle this to get the Fatal Frame 4 patch going and maintain my content already on my sd card.
ALL WRONG. Please just rename it to privateold or something similar. Wii channels in your private folder can cause crashes.
How do I access privateold after that? I assume after I run the patch, I can rename my original folder back to it's correct name?
I could sure use some assistance if anyone is kind enough to help out. I can't be the only Wii owner that keeps some of their DLC on their SD card and want to not have to dedicate a card to just Fatal Frame 4 and switch cards as necessary.
The instructions don't address this issue at all. Can Fatal Frame 4 be played while also keeping my channels on the card?
Only through HBC. If you are using the SD method, you cannot keep your current private folder (you can just rename it, you donít have to delete it).
I certainly wish I could have the best of both worlds (Fatal Frame 4 ready to go at all times, plus all my channels), but this is hardly much of a drawback considering it allows me to play a great game. .
Just one last question, is it safe to rename my Fatal Frame private folder to something else (Privatenew for example) in order to rename and use my old private folder without uninstalling the Fatal Frame 4 patch and the other files on my SD card?
Yeah, perfectly safe. Even if you have them both in the same folder, it will not cause any lasting damage. On navigating to the SD menu, it would either
a) show nothing
c) show up as a question mark channel
