Homebrew SNES emulator released for the Wii

A hacker named RobertFC has ported SNES9X to Nintendo's money maker, and it even includes support for the Wiimote, Classic controller, and two-player game modes.

The story is too old to be commented.

For people who don't know...


IF YOU OWN! "Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess". Which I'm sure 95% of Wii owners do have lol.


You just need to download the hacked Zelda save. And replace the save file you have on your Wii with it.

2.) Then you download Mag Loader>

Extract it into the root of your SD Card. And rename "magloader.elf" to "boot.elf"
Create an empty folder named "elf" also.

3.) Download a Wii homebrew, such as this SNES emulator. Extract it's contents into the "elf" folder on your SD Card.

4.) Pop that SD card into your Wii. Play Zelda and load the hacked save file, Then walk backwards. Mag Loader will start up. Press A,
It will then show a list of homebrew files you have on your SD card.

Then you just choose which ".ELF" homebrew file you want to load and click A. And that homebrew will load :).

Viola! You just did homebrew on your Wii without a modchip or that lame Gecko GC Slot loader.

Thanks a lot for your description. I'd tried this a couple of times, but I wasn't able to get it to work until I read your instructions. Good looking out!

One question: Were you able to use save states for your roms without using an SD Gecko? I'm just using the normal SD Slot on my Wii and I couldn't figure out how to save a game. Do I need to make special folders on the SD cards first to hold the saves?

Thanks again!

At the page that this story leads to. Other people also asked about this. The solution posted was.

"Try changing it from SD to MCard in the SRAM menu... Then changing the thing below it to Front SD."

And yes, You create a saves folder.

Wii is the new PSP.
However, I'm just waiting for Nintendo to send out a firmware update to kill our fun, or worse, our wii's.
