    Make Copy of Old Nintendo 64 Games for Wii

    HI everyone,

    This is my first day here, so if I do something wrong,please post. Anyways, I have a dying N64 with some favorite classic games on it, and after my console dies, I wouldn't be able to play. Is there some kind of conversion software I could use on my computer, in order to play these classics on my Wii? I used some software config. to download the games onto my laptop. The problem is, they are in .z64 file format (I dunno why, I know its a ROM format???). Also, the controls would need to be changed so that it would be Wii player friendly. Any help is helpful

    Backing up your games can be done two ways.1.) Through your Usb Loaders. 2.)Through you computer using The Wii Game manager.
    To Backup your games This program Will Be needed.
    Peire's Wii Game Manager Guide

    Please be aware that newer Wii's Do not play back up disc from the disc drive. Your only option will be to load from the Usb port.Usb Loading is recommeded as you will not have any lag and if your lazy like me,you won't have to get up to change the Disc.

    Before you go out and spend money on a HDD for your Wii,make sure that it is on the Compatibility list.This will save you time and money.

    For Compatibility For Hdd Please refer to the link below.
    Favs Usb Compatibility List

    Formatting your Hard drive is not hard.Read this Guide a couple of times and then proceed to format.You will be pleased with the out come.I recommend the fat32 guide ,because you have your HBC/Emulators run from your HDD and your Usb Loaders With out the need of having two partition's.

    Thank you,

    I understand that this site has a tut. on this. I owned this game, where as this is guide is for roms. I also happen to know that this method is unlawful. I want a legal answer. I should have included this in my post.

    Hmmmmmm...

    After reading, hbc (homebrew) is legal, but there's mixed opinions about Wii64... It also sounds like theres now way just burn a rom file to a disc and insert it into the wii to play. Thanks anyways

    Sadly, there will always be legal questions around homebrew, emulators, etc. On WiiHacks, we simply give you information and expect you to know the laws of your country and use the info offered here correctly.

    And no, that's not possible.

    Some games can be forced to work with the wii using just the wii VC the method is called "wad packing" and is NOT supported in this forum.
    Wad packing can be very dangerous if you are using a real NAND and not an Emu-NAND.

    So,

    I do happen to know that this game is in fact on VC. I could just buy it and make my life easier. I wonder, is a softmodded Wii even worth it when someone could spend $10.00 to solve his problem???
