    [Tutorial] PunEmu - play emulators from USB Loader or DVD


    PunEmu - by Giantpune (a Wii God)
    Source - gbatemp.net/punemu

    I take no credit for this, or anything used to create the ISO. I am just guiding you in the creation of an ISO that will contain certain emulators, you need to supply the roms. When your ISO is complete, you may burn it to a disc or install it to a usb loader.

    The following emulators are included:
    • FCE Ultra GX R507 (NES emulator)
    • Snes 9x GX R625 (SNES emulator)
    • VBA GX R494 (GBA Emulator)
    • Genesis Plus GX R501 (Sega Megadrive Emulator)
    • Wii64 Beta 1.1 (N64 Emulator)


    You must use the included emulators, do not update or install different versions of the emulators.


    Downloads
    punemu-extract+compose
    punemu 1.1




    Create the ISO

    1. Unzip the download
    2. You will now have extracted 2 folders ("punemu 1.1" & "punemu-extract+compose")
    3. Look in the "punemu 1.1" folder and locate the "punemu1.1.wbfs" file
    4. Copy the "punemu1.1.wbfs" file to the "punemu-extract+compose" folder
    5. In the "punemu-extract+compose" folder, Windows users launch the "extract-orig.bat" application, all other users launch the "extract-orig.sh" application. The directory "work-dir" should have been created
    6. Copy your roms to:
      /work-dir/files/fceugx/roms/
      /work-dir/files/genplus/roms/
      /work-dir/files/snes9xgx/roms/
      /work-dir/files/vbagx/Gameboy Advance/
      /work-dir/files/vbagx/Gameboy Color/
      /work-dir/files/vbagx/Gameboy/
      /work-dir/files/wii64/roms/

      If you are going to use the cheat files, then you must make sure your rom files have the same name as the cheat files (don't change the file extention, duh)
    7. Now, if you want to create an ISO, launch the "create-iso" application, if you want to create a wbfs file then launch the "create-wbfs" application. Once again, windows users will use the ".bat" file and all other users will use the ".sh" file. Just let the application do it's thing, it takes a few seconds to look like it's working. An image should have been created when completed, punemu1.1+roms.
    8. The image, punemu1.1+roms, that was created is now ready to be burned to DVD or installed to a usb hdd
    9. If you want to add more roms, repeat steps 6 & 7 to create another ISO.


    This was provided by wiimms.
    punemu-extract+compose (source) - here


    Using the emulators

    readme



    1. I'm not going to go into all the functions of the emulators, there are other support threads for the emulators.
    2. To be able to load the roms, you will need to find the settings of each emulator and select "Load from DVD", even if playing from a usb loader.
    3. To be able to save your games, in the settings, select your FAT32 partition (SD or USB).


    ----------------------------------------

    Do not ask for roms, or where to get them, or else



    That about concludes this tutorial, I will add emulator specifics, at a later time. All I did was create the ISO and did a quick test of it.

    With the 3 tantric Nintendo emulators, once I made the settings and went back to where the roms should have been, I did not see the roms, I had to select "up one level" and the roms appeared.

    With the Wii64 emu, I selected "Load ROM" and had to find the folder where the roms were.

    I know with the genplus emu, the game save directory is automatically created, but not sure with the other emulators, but if you have already used the emulators then you should have those directories already created.

    Don't worry, it is all there and it works, you may have to play around with it for a while to get the hang of it. About the disc size, I don't know how large the ISO can be, it would be nice if one big huge ISO can be created for a usb loader, but the DVD ISO size will be limited to 4.37GB.

    Weird...I thought you had to have WIT installed and use QtWitGui to build the ISO. I didn't realize the shell script when I was playing with it. Do you still need WIT installed if you use the shell script or batch file? Or is everything self contained in the download and doesn't depend on anything else?

    That is what I thought too. I was having trouble with the QtWitGui. Glad to see you figured this out Stomp. I gotta get some new DVD -r's and give this a go.

    Thank you sir! Our emulation section is now full of just about any info anyone could need to run just about every emulator on the Wii.

    Just tried it with a .wbfs file through wiiflow and I did not see the title. What is the title after the image is made, punemu? Havent checked if I did something wrong like put it in the wrong folder or something. I'll do more research when I get a chance, but now its movie time, wiimc to the rescue.

    After I made up a game ID [XXXX##] it showed up in wiiflow, but I got a crash dump when I tried to play.

    Copy the "punemu1.1.wbfs" file to the "punemu-extract+compose" folder
    After the process is complete, you are left with 2 .wbfs files. This one and one that says +roms. Am I wrong for assuming you only need the +roms.wbfs or do I need both of them for some reason. Anyone got this to work yet through a loader. I don't like to burn discs if I don't have to and I already have all of these emulators as channels, I was just trying out a new "one stop shopper" method. Thanks
