Basically... I have a laptop that overheats at even installing broken sword 2.. it seems, nevermind running ToMI.. I have a computer with a broken motherboard, and I only have internet access through a USB dongle.
I've tried setting up an access point on my mobile phone and connecting the wii to it. Doesn't work. Apparently my phone can't connect ad hoc connections. Or something, I don't really get it.
I've tried buying and using the Wii LAN adapter (the same sort of idea DOES work on my xbox 360). Doesn't work. It says it doesn't work with Internet Connection Sharing.
I've tried sitting the laptop on top of a bad of ice wrapped in a tea towel. Doesn't work, it still overheats and switches off doing anything "power intensive" - like watching something on youtube, or installing Broken Sword 2..
I'm stumped. I used to take my wii round to my mum's house and download anything I needed from her router, that's how I've got SBCG4AP. But I'm skint, I can't afford the trip AND the cost of ToMI on wiiware.
At least I've preordered the PC download, I'll eventually have a working PC and I'll be able to play it on that. Or I could wait a few weeks til pay day and go round to my parent's house.
I've spent the last 4 hours trying to get into this old broken Dell I was given, and put a new graphics card in and it still doesn't show a picture, it must be the motherboard.
I think I'm going to cry.
I need to play Monkey Island somehow!! :(
