Step 2: Parts List
+ A Guitar Hero 3 or Aerosmith .iso file
+ XP-codec pack
+ 2 to 4 GB (or more) of free disk space
For those who don't know, The Ghost comes as a .rar compressed file. I know that links die, so after a while you may need to just search Google for the .rar file. But for now, get it here or go to the Ghost's homepage as shown on the Intro page of this instructable.
You will need 7-zip (which is free) or another program that can decompress .rar files like WinZip to open "TheGhost.rar" Get 7-zip here. Go for the first or second .exe file, and then install it.
Ah, the .iso. Again, this must be obtained legally!!! You can get the actual .iso file from your very own Wii and not by torrents by following the wonderful guide by thundaboy here (also on the intro page). After reading his guide, you can extract the actual .iso from an external hard drive or flash drive with WFBS Manager. Ask him for help with this, not me.
The XP-Codec Pack is strictly for The Ghost, and is probably the easiest to get. A codec is a small file
stored in C:\WINDOWS that lets your computer play and make music and video files. In this case, we need to be able to handle .ogg .wav, and xbadpcm files. Get it here, and then install it.
Finally, you need a good amount of disk space to run The Ghost. It manipulates song packs, reads data partitions, deletes video cores, converts audio, etc. and needs a good deal of temporary space to do this.
Once you have installed the XP-Codec Pack and have the .iso file, you can move on.
