    Smile GC backups on the Wii Family edition

    Hi everyone, great website and some really excellent guides.

    I recently bought a Wii family edition and am looking at softmodding it. My only question is: will this Wii be able to play gamecube backups? I know it can't read physical games and can't connect GC controllers. Was just wondering if it's possible to emulate them somehow.

    Thanks a lot

    It doesnt have GC ports, and AFAIK there is no way to emulate a GC controller. The only solution would be to solder GC ports on it... I believe you are out of luck regarding GC games.

    Thanks for the reply but I understand I can't use the controllers, just wanted to know if any emulation of GC games even using Wii controls is possible.

    I just don't know if it's possible to solder GC ports on a Wii Family Edition, but what I can assure you it's that Wii Family Edition can play GameCube backups from an USB HardDisk.

    Wii Family Edition can play GameCube backups as usually do a "normal Wii".

    Yesterday I was softmodding my sister's Wii Family Edition, and I tried it. I got a big surprise when I see "Star Fox Adventures" running on her Wii. It would be cool if you can use a Classic Controller to play them.
