    If thats not too much of a problem for you then go for it. For me, ripping a game then editing the code so that it works with the Wii emulator for which the code isn't even released is very difficult to impossible. I doubt that will ever happen.

    They will just release an update that disables the loophole.

    Apparently the emulator is packaged with each VC title. Of course, it'd still require A) ripping the emulator from a VC file and B) reverse engineering it to work with other ROMs.

    On top of that, you'd have to package the ROMs in the right format...plus it's entirely likely the VC games are encrypted using some public/private key crypto like RSA, in which case we don't have Nintendo's private key so a hole would have to be found (like with the dude that cracked HD-DVD).

    It's a lot of work to pirate something. This time could be better spent...dirty pirates.

    playing roms on the wii has been done.. its using the gc method.. its pretty simple.. its been done for 2 months now and nintendo has done nothing about it. hacking the vc is useless. do a search.. homebrew for the win!!!!

    Okay, didn't read the ENTIRE thing once again, but are some of you seriously thinking that you're genious's or something? "OH, bla blah blah I can hack this thatt and the other thing" You people are idiots. It's great that roms can be tampered with, guess what, you're not and will never be as smart as the ENTIRE nintendo crew. Sorry to burst yer bubble, but if you want illegal downloads you can't put them on the wii. No, you're not so special you can get around this, no you are not Dade Murphy from that silly interesting and fictional movie called "HACKERS". If you honestly think you can be them then be my guest, I hope you waste plenty of time TRYING to get around their team of EXPERTS while I enjoy playing my Wii! Sucks that you buy a Wii and hardly use it just to try and get around the impossible. Play illegal(crappy and unstable) games on something else because the Wii is not designed for you. Sell your system to someone who wont screw with it and ruin it for something absolutely absurd. Believe me there are people out there who WONT let it collect dust............

    It's hardly impossible, but certainly difficult. Things like the VC get cracked all the time, and with SD card support it makes it a bit easier. Also, Nintendo's team isn't the best in the world; there's lots of hackers out there with far more skill in low-level stuff. Game development != security.

    Not that I disagree that it's a terrible waste of time. If you have that much free time, use it to make something that advances humanity instead of cheats people out of their hard-earned money. Or hell, use it to make some money yourself so you can get out of your parents' basement.

    I don't think even a small percentage of wii users could be bothered to go to whatever extremes it takes to hack/play a few old virtual console games (illegally) for free.
    There's always going to be a tiny minority of people who hack/mod their console to play copied games - but with online gaming really taking off and subscription gaming being a big thing I think the mod/hack thing will suffer...
    These people have always seemed lame/ghetto to me. I mean just f**king shell out a few extra bucks and buy the official damn game? PC gaming has been ass-raped by piracy. id software left pc gaming to develop primarily for consoles after doom3 made more money on the X-box...

    They dumb really. People like anekin make me sick. And I whole heartedly agree with potatoewedge and zanatos. But yeah why would you want to tamper with a perfect machine built by a team of hard, dedicated workers? Its just plain wrong and I hope you get arrested. Go do something productive with your life rather than sit there wondering how to hack someones work.

    PS Hey Zanatos? Did you get your username from the show Gargoyles!? I remember that show. One of the GREATEST shows on tv back in the day.
