Thread: WiiWare Launcher ISO???

    WiiWare Launcher ISO???

    I was thinking that it would be nice if I could somehow store my WiiWare titles on my USB Drive. Obviously they can't run as channels from USB, but I was thinking that it could be done by creating some kind of of custom ISO that has all the WiiWare titles built into it, and of course some sort of launcher to choose the title you want to play.

    Has this been done? If so, could someone point me in the right direction.


    Thanks in advance!

    Have a look at Triiforce, might be what you're looking for. http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-sd-card.html

    Triiforce is definitly what you want. It makes a NAND copy and emulates it.

    Shortly after making my post, I put together the right search terms and came across Triforce. This apparently requires NAND emulation, which is probably going further than I'm willing to.

    Apparently Wiiware can only run from NAND, and even when you have it saved as a channel on your SD card, it actually copies itself to NAND before running. So I guess it makes sense that NAND emulation is the only way it can be done.

    I just did that turorial yesterday, it was very simple. Triiforce is nothing more than an emulator, like you would use to load N64 roms, or any other roms. Just a little more effort on your part to get it working.

    Yeah, I read through it and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. I think that the phrase "NAND Emulation" just sounds scary. I know that tutorial focuses on getting TriForce to work using an SD card, but in theory, could I just put the specified folders in the root of my USB Drive instead??

    That would be the way to go, but I need a bigger HDD first, my 500gb HDD is just about full.
