    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    Congratulations. You downloaded a bunch of emulators.
    Not even worth making a video of.

    Are we supposed to be impressed?

    To be honest, it's not all that impressive that you just renamed a few icons and installed some emulators but instead of just bagging on you like some others here, here's some constructive advice:

    1. What emulators are you using? If you want customization, MAME/MESS is probably the best way to go. It's not the fastest emulator set out there but it emulates a TON of hardware and supports a wide variety of hardware as input.

    2. Have your emulators default to full screen at startup.

    3. What are you using to control your emulators? These days a USB gamepad is a great solution. I don't know if you can do it in OS X but in Linux you can even get the window environment to recognize a USB gamepad as a general input device so you don't have to switch from using your mouse to your controller to change games or emulators.

    4. How about a full-screen menu that launches your emulators for you? You could even get fancy with the artwork there. There are some pre-built ones for MESS and MAME or you could roll your own if you want to stick with your current stable of emulators. TCL/Tk used to be a really nice scripting language for doing that sort of thing but there may be better options out there now.

Also, the icons will not display the normal photo file types. (i.e. .png, .jpeg, .jpg, .psd, .bmp and so on and so forth.)

    I don't want to start arguing but I am just letting you know, I know quite a lot about computers.
    If you know quite a lot about computers as you say, then you would know it's a trivial matter to get the icon image into an image editor, do whatever you want with it, and save it out as an icon image file that can be selected when you choose Change Icon for a program.
