    Question about playing games from the older systems on a wii?

    So I'm thinking of getting rid of my Nintendo 64, Gamecube, and SNES. Because I have a Wii now. And I just need to know if I can play games from those systems on a Wii using Indiana Pwns or the Twilight hack?? Basically I know I need an SD card to put the ROMs onto the Wii and I know I need an emulator. But what I'm most confused on is, which emulator do I need, will all those systems' games work on the Wii with the emulator, do I need an SD card reader, can I use my memory cards from my Gamecube WITH the hacked Wii (that's the most important question so if you want to answer one, answer that one), and what kind of controller should I buy that would accommodate all those systems? I just need a little more information on all of this before I go selling all my systems. And I already know about the website wiibrew.com or whatever. It isn't much help at all. And the only reason I'm even selling this stuff in the first place is because I want a car. I know, I know. I should just get a job. But that's more waiting and I dunno.... By the way, my Nintendo 64 doesn't even work. And I'm not gonna keep all these systems when I can get everything on the Wii. I know they're classics and believe me I love games but there's just no need of keeping them.

    Saw this thread and felt bad for you, I hate when my thread goes un-answered.

    YOU CAN GET RID OF THE GBA, NES, SNES, GAMECUBE BUT NOT THE N64!

    Anyway you can find all emulators here: http://www.wiihacks.com/emulators/77...-consoles.html

    That's for main consoles but like he said in the forum, 5th generation's are very buggy, those are Wii64 (N64), WiiSX (PS1), and Yabause Wii (Sega saturn)

    For gamecube you can follow this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...-your-wii.html

    If you want to keep a disc for with the emulators on it check this out: http://www.wiihacks.com/emulators-do...giantpune.html
    Thanks to Peire to making the awesome sig and avatar!

    Why shouldn't I get rid of my N64? It doesn't work so it's not like I can play it anyways. There's no point in having it really.

    But, those links that you showed me seem way different from something else I read on this website: List of homebrew emulators - WiiBrew Such as the Indiana Pwns hack. I don't understand the whole soft modding thing. Is that just for the Gamecube games and do I even need to do that?

    Follow the softmod any wii guide first. Then go with the ultimate emulation guides that austin linked. N64 will work on the Wii, but some games are real laggy.

    You will only need a game to exploit your wii if you are on system menu 4.3.

    I guess basically what I'm asking is, can I put ROMs on the Wii with an SD card? Like, the Gamecube games for example, can't I just use an emulator, put the ROMs on the SD card, and then load it onto my Wii? Why do I need to burn them onto a CD or whatever? Because I don't even know how to do that. And why do I NEED to softmod it?
