    WiiSX - Playstation emulator for Wii

    A port of the PS1 emulator, PCSX, to the Nintendo GC/Wii

    WiiSX is a PS1 emulator for the Nintendo Gamecube & Wii brought to you by Wii64Team (emu_kidid, sepp256, tehpola).

    Download -
    Source - pcsxgc - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Installation and Usage
    • ISOs can be .bin/.cue (Make sure .cue contains _relative_ directory!), .img, or .iso format
    • To install: Extract the contents of to the root of your SD card
    • For SD/USB: Put ISOs (.bin/.cue or other formats) in the directory named /wiisx/isos,
    • All save types will automatically be placed in /wiisx/saves
    • For DVD: ISOs may be anywhere on the disc (requires DVDxV2 on Wii)
    • For actual BIOS: Put SCPH1001.BIN in the directory on SD/USB named /wiisx/bios
    • Load the executable from the HBC or in the loader of your choice
      Once loaded, select 'Load ISO' and choose the source and select the ISO to load
      (Note: to go up a directory select '..', B will exit the file browser)
    • Select 'Play Game' to play
    • The game can be exited any time by pressing a configurable key combination together
      on a GC pad (START & X), Classic Controller (ZL & ZR), Wiimote (- & +),
    • Wiimote+Nunchuck (1 & 2), or the reset button
      (Note: this must be done to save your game; it will not be done automatically)

    If you are having problems loading the ISOs from a USB device then try using usb port 1, that is the usb port closest to the center of the Wii, and unplug the usb storage device from usb port 0. If you have a forwarder with AHBPROT support then unplugging the usb device from usb port 0 is not necessary. I have tested and found that the ISOs will not load from usb port 0.

    Question. I Didn't know where to put this since the "discuss the emulator" thread was closed. How do you get the saves to work? I was playing this game and it said that there was no memory card so i can't save.

    you need a gamecube memory card.

  4. #4
    I have a modded 4.3u set up with the USB HD.
    It works with the USD loaders.
    But when i try to run the N64 and the PS1 emulators - the system would not recognize the USB port.
    Is there some kind of a guide for this?
