    [Tutorial] The Ultimate Emulation Guide Part 3 - Computers


    In part three of my series I will cover old school computer emulators. I'll be covering nine emulators in all. Once again I will only be covering the best or my favorite emulator if there are multiple emulators for the same system. I also decided to leave out NEC's PC-8801 and 9801. I have no memories or desire to play them and you have to be on top of your Japanese to enter their realm. I was going to include Chippy but it won't launch for me.

    Because we are dealing with computer emulators a USB keyboard is definitely recommended and with some it's mandatory. Setting up, running, and operating computer emulators can be a lot more confusing, challenging, and involving than the previously covered emulators. Expect to start having to do a lot more.

    I will be using the same 2GB PNY SD. As with all my guides don't ask where to obtain ROMs, BIOS, or game images and try to only ask questions pertaining to the guide.

    As with the first two I will only be covering basic SD/SDHC/USB install. I will not be covering things like channel installs or forwarders. I'm not covering all of the controls and options because that can all be found on the emulators WiiBrew page and Readme. Also I will only be covering the original versions of the emulators and no unofficial forks. As a reminder most if not all emulators can be downloaded via The Homebrew Browser.

    Also as with the first two parts if you want to save a little room you can either delete or move the readme files to your PC for safe keeping after you read them. I stress the after you read them part...Read them or fail! You can also leave them if you choose to because they wont hurt anything. I'll mention which files you need and don't need with every emulator.

    [SPOILER="Fuse"]

    Fuse is a Wii port of the PC ZX Spectrum emulator Fuse.

    (Note - Fuse is a mess after you get it set up in terms of organisation. Everything dumps into one file. Also there is no icon included with the download. I created the icon above using GIMP and the PC Fuse logo. You can save the icon that I created to your PC as icon.png and use it or you can create your own. If you create your own make sure it's a 128x48 PNG named icon.png)

    [SPOILER="Wiituka"]

    Wiituka is a Wii port of the PC Amstrad CPC emulator PituKa.

    (Note - The vast majority of original games programmers and publishers have given their permission for their CPC software to be released into the public domain, including Amstrad who released the system ROMs. Seeing as how almost all software and system ROMs are public domain it is legal to download most everything. One of the unique features of Wiituka is it's ability to use your Wii's internet connection to download games from a public repository. It's kind of like the Shopping Channel of emulators. I'll include the official offline ROM pack seeing as how it meets site guidelines in case your Wii doesn't have an internet connection.)

    A Fat16/32 SD/SDHC (You can only use SDHC on system menu 4.0 or above.)
    A USB Keyboard

    Wiituka does not support USB devices.

    Additional BIOS you will need:
    None

    File types supported:
    Only compressed files

    Compressed file types supported:
    .zip

    (Note - There are two ways of setting up Wiituka so I'll cover both. The first will be for if you choose to use the offline ROM pack or your Wii doesn't have an internet connection. The second way will be for if your Wii has an internet connection and you want to download your own games.)

    1) Download and extract wiituka_0.98.8-scenery2k9.zip. You will end up with an apps folder.

    Inside apps you will find wiituka.

    Inside wiituka you will find DISKS, SAVES, SCREENS, boot.dol, icon.png, meta.xml, and READMII.

    READMII is not necessary to the operation of the emulator.
    SCREENS is currently empty. Inside DISKS you will two games to get you started. mikegunner.zip and psychpig.zip.

    Inside SAVES you will find CFG which is currently empty.


    2) If you don't already have a apps folder on your SD/SDHC create a folder named apps at your root. - /apps

    Copy the entire contents of the wiituka into the apps folder you are currently using or just created. - /apps/wiituka (apps/wiituka/DISKS, /apps/wiituka/SAVES, /apps/wiituka/SAVES/CFG, /apps/SCREENS)


    This is where the install will differ. If your Wii has an internet connection and you want to download your own games skip to step 4. If you want to use the offline ROM pack follow step 3 on.

    3) Download and extract wiituka_dskpack.zip. You will end up with a folder named DISKS.

    Inside DISKS there are 34 games.

    Either cut or copy the games you want and paste them into the DISKS folder on your SD/SDHC (apps/wiituka/DISKS).


    4) Eject your SD/SDHC from the PC and insert it in your Wii. Fire the Wii up and enter the HBC. Launch Wiituka and it will bring up a screen saying it's ready press any button to continue. The first time you launch it will take a second to get to this screen because it creates the necessary files and updates your ROM list.

    Press any button and it will bring up your ROM list.

    Select your game and press A. Your game will launch.

    Wolfenstein 3D for DOS was epic. Can't wait to try that game out on the Wii using the DOSBox.

    Very good job on the emulation guides, by the way.

    Very good job on the emulation guides, by the way.
    Thank you sir. You could also use the game engine Wolfenstein 3D Wii to run it. It will be covered in my final fourth part.

    yeah!!!! commodore and atari!!!
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    It's nice to be thanked every once in a while rather than answering problems.

    I'm sorry if any of the pictures disappear from my guides soon but it will only be temporarily if it happens. I use so many photos they eat up a lot of bandwidth so I need host them via a Photobucket Pro account which expires today. Unfortunately I also had to cancel my debit card today so I can't renew until the new one arrives in 5-7 days. Hopefully there is enough free bandwidth to hold me over until then but just in case this is fair warning. If they disappear they will be back up soon...I swear! Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hmm...I'll have to look into free alternatives. I didn't even think of that. Well I mean photobucket is free unless you want to eat up a lot of bandwidth like myself. LOL. It sucks being temperarily without a debit card!
