    Has this happened to you " Your a Retro geek and have filled up all your space on your wii menu with Virtual Console games"?

    If yes I was thinking Nintendo should send out an update so that Virtual Console
    is one channel and when you click on it will show all the VC games you own and if you wanna play them so anyways I was wondering what you guys thought about this?

    Well you can delete the game and redownload it for free whenever, so just do that...keep your favs, bin the rest.

    i got i think 14 ,or spots left open. Although i agree they need a dedicated VC channel. Especially when you consider something here. Nintendo plans to keep adding new channels thus depleting your VC game space. Two things they need to do on the storage end of things on the wii is make a dedicated VC channel ,and allow for some kind of external harddrive to be added to your wii through the usb ports on the back. I mean how they except retro fans to get the games they want ,and have enough channel ,and memory space. Come on

    nope, the sd card only holds the game save, if you could download the whole game onto the card(which would be to small for the file size of most games) then ppl would illegally trade games, but i think they should make each system on the vc a folder on the wii menu, so N64,NES, Genesis etc. would all have their own channel you access to play your games on that console, thats my idea, i think it would work great that way, and each folder wouldnt have a limited number of slots, as many as you want that can fit on your internal memory could be stored

    a single sd card would not be too small to hold these games. I have 13 ds games on a 1 gig card and room for more, which are generally the same size or larger than 64 games.

    I have 12 games but I'm pretty sure by next year I'll have to delete some of the games to make room for new ones, I think there should be a update by next year adding like 4 more pages to the Wii Menu.

    you can only recopy games to the same wii it was downloaded from. trust me, i've only got zelda oot, f-zero, and star fox 64 on my menu, but the rest of my games are waiting on the sd card. however, it knows if you try to transfer it to another wii. it has a mind of its own!!!

    Ok so let me get this straight.

    "You cannot run a VC game off of the SD card. The game has to be on the Wii hard memory."

    Is this statement correct?

    Yes at this time (19/04/07) that is correct there is no way of playing VC Games off the SD Card

    However - a mod chip update or a very clever person will find away - if PSP firmware can be cracked so can VC Game system locking

    Why not stoe the encryption key on the internal memory and the rest of the game on the SD card. As long as the SD card is fast enough there should be no issues playing it from there.

    I know they need copy protection but, as I am lazy I would like to purchase a huge catalog and have them always available.

    I have stopped purchasing VC games due to the 50hz issue, which runs games slowly, and means I have to unplug my component cable to play any SNES, NES and MegaDrive games.

    Hopefully they will sort out the issues before the VC fills up.

    I have never saved a game to a SD card before, but as far as I know, it does copy the whole game, but there is a key on the Wii that lets the game work, if the game on that SD card is ran on a different Wii, the key does not match and does not allow the game to play, but if the other Wii has the game installed on it, the game save in the game will work, but I think that if you were to save a game to the memory card and delete it from the Wii system memory, you can copy the game back from the SD card, right?

    I think they should be a channel for each console, so 5 channels for vc, more organized, and faster to find the game you are looking for, I think. I know that in a year, people will have over 150 games to download.
