    Possible to play *any* game ROM?

    So am I correct in understanding that through the process of "injecting" ROMs, you can play *any* game ROM from any supported Virtual Console system: NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Sega Master System, etcetera?

    If that's the case, I would *really* love to know how to do that.

    Also, if there's any way to use Game Genie codes on Virtual Console games, any way at all, please let me know.

    I don't normally mess with any cheat codes, but they are fun to mess around with sometimes. The big thing I really like to use them for is to turn off those annoying, pointless death timers that just automatically kill you if you "run out of time", like in most of the early Mario games and Castlevania and other games. It's not that I can't beat these games with the timer in them, but I just don't like timers in games like that that don't make any sense as to *why* you're gonna die if your "time runs out".

    But anyway, if anyone can help me in getting the answers to these questions, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance if anyone does help me with this.

    Using google will bring you a lot of hits to your questions. If you can't find the information here by searching then use google and search the web. The tools are out there and easy to find....

    Well, yeah, but I just wanted to ask here 'cause I wanted to know if it is possible before I do a bunch of searching for something that might or might not be out there. I know what you're saying, but I figured this would be the best place to "search" for that question, 'cause even Google, as good as it is, can sometimes give me a runaround when I try to find an answer to something. ...Actually, I have been looking for the past while here on Google trying to find out about all this, but there's still unanswered questions.

    But...does anyone know *for sure* if it's possible to play any game ROM by injecting them?

    How good are the emulators for SMS, NES, Genesis and SNES?

    Okay, first of all, I've heard that term "bricked" before, but I don't know what it means. I know it's something bad. What exactly does that mean?

    Also, there was something else I was wondering about, and I guess this is probably the best place to ask it. I was looking around the Web with Google and I came across this one page that has all this different stuff that you can download for Wii including emulators for various systems. My four favorite classic systems are Sega Master System, NES, Sega Genesis, and my favorite classic system over all, SNES. Well, I noticed that there is an emulator for each of these systems for Wii. I was wondering, has anyone here who is familiar with games from those systems tried these emulators out, and how accurately does each emulator emulate its system?

    I have used computer-based emulators before, but what I don't like about them is that you tend to somewhat often run into *some* kind of emulation bug. Usually it's not something major, but sometimes it can be just a music or sound effect that doesn't sound the way it does on the original console or...something like that. That's why I was trying to get all these games to play on the actual Wii channels so that I know the emulation would be flawless, but if it is already flawless on these emulators for Wii, then there's no point in worrying about trying to go through the process of injecting each and every game I want to play and all that, and the whole process of getting the emulators up and running might be easier than the whole injecting thing anyway, since I can't figure out how you're supposed to obtain the WADs needed to do the injections. ...The big problem is that I'm very much a hands-on learner, so if I could actually physically be there with someone and have them walk me through it and just tell me step by step what to do and I actually *do* each step one at a time, I'm sure it'd be very easy for me and I'd probably be an expert at it after just one time, but without that, all the written instructions in the world won't do me much good.

    But anyway, so how are the emulators of those four systems on the Wii? Are they totally accurate in their emulation, or are there bugs just like with computer-based emulators? One thing that I think might be an advantage to these emulators for the Wii is that they're all made for and tested on the Wii, which is the same everywhere, unlike computer-based emulators that are made on one kind of system that's running one kind of software but distributed and played on several different kinds of systems each running different software and using possibly different hardware too. With these Wii-based emulators, I'm hoping they'll be better because everyone would get the same final experience with them that the ones who made each emulator got when they tested it, and it'll all work the same on every Wii.

    If they do have flawless emulation, then I may as well just look into getting those up and running. Also, I would assume that, as every computer-based emulator I've ever used, each emulator would have a built-in Game Genie in it, which would be great because while I don't use Game Genie codes much at all, there are some games, like I said before, that I love to play but I hate the pointless death timers in them and want to turn them off so I can fully enjoy the game without having to feel rushed when I play it.

    But anyways... ...Whoa, I...didn't mean to make this so long. Sorry about that. I guess it's 'cause those recent messages I wrote were all wrote from my Wii with the Internet Channel and I had to type everything out one character at a time using the Wii Remote, and now I'm on an actual computer, so it's like I can type really, really fast now all the sudden. I've been meaning to get a keyboard for the Wii at some point.

    Well, anyways, if anyone can answer my questions about the emulators for those four classic systems and tell me how good they are, I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance if anyone helps me with this.

    I've only tried out the N64 emulator and it IS kind of buggy with Super Smash Brothers - the text is EXTREMELY blurry and it runs REALLY slow.

    Also, I'd like to understand more about injecting ROMs into existing Virtual Console games. I want to know exactly how it is that I do that. Would you mind to either explain it to me, in dummy terms, or direct me to a site that explains it in dummy terms? I mean, once I do it or see it done one time, I'm sure it'll be easy for me, but I'm a very visual learner, so it's hard for me to learn to do something just from written instructions. That's why I'm asking for "dummy" instructions.

    Okay, I guess that's all. Thanks in advance if you help me to figure out how to do this stuff.
    I have a DVD with a few thousand of these VC games. Just trying to figure out how to save games now...I assume you can only save to an SD card?

    Or if you're not allowed to post a link here, can you please send me one in my E-mail at paladin_knight_999@yahoo.com?

    And is this a disk for GameCube or actually a Wii disk or is it an actual DVD? The reason I ask is because the Wii can't play DVDs, unless there's a way to make it play them with the Homebrew Channel or something, which I need to look into, and if it's a GameCube disk, then I guess that would mean you couldn't use the Wii's Classic Controller and you'd have to use a GameCube controller, and there's a lot of classic games I don't like to play with a GameCube controller, like Super Mario World to name one of them. I tried playing that on Virtual Console with a GameCube controller and flying with the cape is...weird...and uncomfortable.
