    How does Gamecube games work on Hardmodded Wii?

    Im soon going to buy a hardmodded Wii but one of the reasons of getting a chipepd Wii is because i want to be able to play Gamecube games on it aswell, as these games are almost impossible to find where i live (Denmark).

    i was wondering are burned gamecube games even possible on a wii/Chipped Wii? since they are originally in mini-dvd format. Do you just burn them on a regular DVD-R like with a Wii game through something like IMGburn?

    This is very important for me as ive missed out on games like Sunshine/Windwaker because i dint buy a Gamecube and my last console is a N64 and i dont think the Wii library is big enough for someone at my age so the Gamecube library will come in handy as im most interested in Nintendos own games

    Are there any problems with this, ive heard Drivekey also doesnt have sound support, does this only mean for unoriginal GC games and not the game purchased in a store?

    Yes possible and working great. Regular DVD-R works fine burnt using ImgBurn 4x. Didn't even use Verbatim.

    Perhaps not all chips work perfectly with Gamecube games so do check on that. I went for Wiikey2 as they worked well on my drive type and as an added bonus they come preconfigured with Gamecube fixes, you can even turn the fixes off in the configuration if you wish.

    "No Talk of Trading, Selling, Buying or Begging of Ntorrent invites" allowed!" Outright Ban cya
    1) Spamming, Flaming and Abusing other Members None of the above will be tolerated in any way. Spamming fills the board with junk posts that most people are not interested in reading and degrades the quality of the board. Flaming and abusing other members is just not tolerated and will lead to immediate banning of your username and IP address. 2) Please try to post in accordance with these etiquette guidelines: Posting Etiquette Don't spam (obviously). Don't flame others. Don't type in ALL CAPITALS LIKE THIS. It is a type of flaming and it is hard to read. Try to write in proper sentences to make it easier to read your posts. Think before you type. If you are unsure, it is best not to post anything at all until you thought about it. If you see spamming, advertising or flaming, best thing to do would be to report the incident to a member of staff by pm system or e-mail, the contact form on the main site or to use the bad post alert feature next to the post or thread in question. Don't get involved yourself. Don't try to swear or bypass the language filter. Others use the message board as well and may not be pleased at use of swear words. Trying to bypass the swear filter may also get you banned. 3) No other site advertisingWe don't allow advertising of other sites in your posts, if you have a personal (non commercial) website or forum, generally we allow you to place the URL in your signature AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT A COMPETITION TO ANY OF OUR SPONSORS. However we reserve the right to remove these URLs at any point and without notice. 4) No scamming Anyone caught trying to gain another members password for this board or for anything else (for example an online game) will immediately be banned. 5)No links or any kind of nudity this is a game site,young viewers are every ware so it's a must you don't or you will be band for good. 6)No illegal posts,link or etc,this is a site about/for games not illegal content of any kind!!! THE BELOW RULES ARE MEANT TO TEACH YOU WHA'T SOME OF THE ABOVE RULES ARE. SOME/MOST OF THESE RULES ARE GROUNDS FOR A BAN IF YOU BREAK THEM. 7. Flaming Here, flaming falls under the definition of directly calling another member a derogatory word, or clearly insinuating that a derogatory word in your post applies to a member or group of members. An important thing to remember is if you are flamed by someone, don't flame back. As a matter of fact, you may want to avoid replying to the flame entirely, because most people who flame are looking to irritate the person they flame, and replying to them makes them feel successful at doing so. If you're worried about your post being a flame, note that usually a specific word like "idiot" can be cited in a flame. Then again, if you are worried about your post being a flame, you're probably trolling {see III.B}. B. Trolling Trolling is a less serious form of flaming {see III.A}, and at the same time broader. This is mostly comments that clearly belittle another member or make them feel unwelcome. Telling them to shut up is an example. If you don't like someone's posting habits, do not be mean about it. Trolling is also often done as flamebaiting, or trying to get the person to flame back. If that's what you're doing, don't post it. Also, repeatedly borderline trolling a member wherever he posts (stalking in essence) falls under here. C. Disrespecting Staff If a staff member makes a decision, do not argue about it in the topic or even in a new one. You are allowed to PM that person or after an higher up to say why you disagree with the decision, and we will consider your point. Make the PM civilized though. This also includes direct and intentional disobeying of something a staff member says. D. Bigotry Racist posts, anti-semitic posts, and any other comment which trolls or flames a whole group of people (like gays or furries) are not allowed here. If you ever see a debate involving bigotry (like whether whites are supreme or not), it's better not to participate in it. The topic will likely be closed soon with appropriate warnings given out. . Disrespect of Community Plots to destroy/tease (like spamming or hacking) other communities, members, and such are not acceptable on (Wii hacks) (posting and such). Impersonating our staff on other communities in such plots is also not acceptable. People found breaking this rule risk being banned from our community for an indefinite amount of time depending upon the circumstances. This seems harsh, but we do not welcome people using us as a crutch just to pull pranks (destructive, annoying, or whatever). The above 8) No requesting cheat codes, for online play!due to the overall opinion of the forum, along with the feelings of the staff, you're no allowed to post or request any codes, outside of Animal crossing for obvious reasons. .................................................. ........................................... THIS Part is not valid as we currently have a posting looking for some new additional staff READ BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT ASKING FOR A STAFF JOBThease are the rules you must read before you ask for a staff job,these are here so you know what not and what to ask for and how. 1.Don't ask for a staff job ...we will ask you if we need a staff member(if we want/need a staff member. 2.Don't rent~a~mod if your not staff don't act like it. 3.And no admin jobs are open please don't ask.... 4.Respect the staff or you will never be able to be a staff. 5.And don't email a mod and ask to become a mod.... admins can only make staff and they will choose who they feel is the right member for the don't ask ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ INVITES Attention: you must have 5 or more Constructive posts or before you can post in the INVITE Section.... if you don't have 5 Real Posts your POST/THREAD will be deleted .....this rule is now enforced!!!!

NOTE:Any one seen breaking these rules will be banned, warned or worst (ip) banned Next Commercial Advertising ***There is to be NO Advertisements by any Commercial Modding Interests that is Not a Sponsor or unless explicit permission is given...*** for your proper size signature... in your single thread in the buy sell section Ads will be removed and if repeated...ip ban Members are not allowed to create topics or posts intended only to promote or advertise their own or any website(s) without staff permission. Members may link to their own website/forum in their signature and profile as long as the advertisement is not in conflict with our sponsors and non-obtrusive. Avatars and Signatures Avatars are available for members to personalise their posts by adding their own text. Avatars ads/Banner signature Ads are only to be used by sponsors. ANY NON -Competing Commercial MODs Operation may provide non-solicitation support in the forums and admin will decide after a period of time if that individual may show their URL in their signature.... Each is an individual case...there is no if's, ands, or this. Do not abuse this right, or it will be removed and you will be removed from the forums Obscene, vulgar or sexually explicit images or any image that Wiihacks staff feel are not appropriate are not allowed in signatures and will be removed WITHOUT notice The following image is an example, to help you understand the average size of a main signature graphic...Including any extra text. You may go under and over the 350 x 90 pixel guideline as long as it doesn't appear too big. No commercial sigs if you r not a sponsor unless approval is 1st obtained. Signatures that the WiiHacks Staff find are too big will be removed without notice including possibly the post, and the member in question should/but not manditory receive a PM from the Staff member explaining why their signature was removed or reduced. AND/OR ...Unlike the resolution of the main signature graphic, there are set file size limits. * The maximum file size for an avatar is: 20KB, * The maximum combined file size for all graphics in a signature is: 40KB. Re: Commercial Mods SponsorShip*We are very particular as to who we approve as a sponsor *Potential sponsors can only be from areas open for sponsorship *There will never be multiple sponsors from 1 area...example..BC.,Ontario, Australia are taken, * Before a sponsor can be approved..they must provide support on the forum for a period of time... & depending how that works out..a decision will be made. *All Sponsors at wiihacks take a community atitude and do not aggressively solicit business.... as in order to have cohesiveness here..all sponsors here play well together or they are gone. Addition to the rules It has come to the staff's attention that there are various users that are taking advantage of word filters and generally using language that is not warranted nor needed on a site like WiiHacks. Effective immediately, a new rule is going into effect to address these issues and hopefully remedy them. Please take a moment to read the new set of rules below. The new rule has been made bold and assigned a color so it stands out. Failure to abide by these will result in some form of punishment. >These are some of the new rules added for this forum ..please read & follow them< Language This site is available as a resource to anyone who has the ability to access the internet. As such, it is guaranteed that there will be visitors to this site with different religious backgrounds, ethical stances, ages, etc. With this in mind, it is imperative that you as members maintain a friendly and non-offensive atmosphere here at WiiHacks. Effective immediately, the following now applies to all members:

    * The use of any form of profanity, racial slur, etc. will result in disciplinary action
    * Attempting to bypass the word filter, or disguise profanity by using alternate characters will result in an immediate ban

    ** Last Rule If your account is banned, you are banned permanently. That doesn't mean to create another account. If you are found creating another account, that account will be banned as well. The same goes for suspensions. one member = one account ...Violation means permanent ban...If you happen to have more than 1 account and are not banned really would be very wise to remove any extra account..... We will be doing a search on a regular basis in the future Any attempt at finding a loophole in a rule, or attempting to find your way around a rule, will result in a ban. ** Last Rule And most important have fun read the rules and Make friends with the same interest and help each other out The above is a work in progress...all content is a complilation of many mods over the years... Cheers Wiihacks Staff
