    PLaying VirtualConsole games from HDD

    I was wondering what the best way to play virtual console games from my HDD is. I wanted to play Majora's Mask but wasn't really sure the best way to do this. I was looking at triiforce but it had files you need to run on your computer and I'm on a mac not windows. Let me know the best/simplest way to get this working....point me in the direction of some tutorials please. Thanks for the help

    Do you have a wad installer (such as multi mod manager) installed? If not:

    1. Download multi mod manager (search on google)

    2. Place it in the apps folder of your SD card.

    3. It is now ready to be started from the homebrew channel.

    Now, to get the game:

    1. Make sure that you own the original (if not, this becomes illegal)

    2. Download the game's .wad file (just google the game name with wad after it)

    3. Put the wad file in the wad folder of your SD card (or anywhere else, it doesn't matter)

    4. Start MMM and click on "install wad". It will show the contents of the wad folder on your SD card by default.

    5. Locate the file and install.

    6. Start your game from the wii menu!

    Hope this helped, this method is the same for WiiWare games too.

    Also, I'm guessing that your wii is already softmodded - but you should still give as much info as you can when asking a question!

    Download The Homebrew Browser and just use Wii64... It lets you use almost any controller like the Wii remote, Wii mote + Nunchuck, GCN Controller, and you can load from your SD Card, USB, or DVD-R disks! I find it way easier.
