    Cool How To Play Super Nintendo Games On Your Wii

    Hey there! Ever wanted to play the ancient games of Super Nintendo once again? Well now you can and, even better, from your Wii! Just follow the guide (It's pretty easy)....

    Requirements:
    The Homebrew Channel
    An SD Card

    Step 1: Download

    -Download this Homebrew Application:Snes9x GX 4.1.5 (1).zip

    -Save it to the a folder called apps in the root of your SD Card (If your new to homebrew, and don't have that folder, make it)

    Step 2: Set-Up

    -Create a folder called " snes9xgx " in the root of your SD Card.
    -Inside it, create 2 sub-folders : Roms and Saves.

    Step 3: Getting some Roms

    -Find any site that offers free Roms, like CoolROM.com - ROMs and Emulators - SNES ROMs NES ROMs N64 ROMs MAME ROMs GBA ROMs NDS ROMs

    -Place any SNES Roms into the Roms folder.

    Step 4: Using it on your Wii

    -Place your SD Card into the SD Card slot in the front of the Wii.
    -Click on the Hombrew Channel
    -Click SNES9XGX

    It should then automatically read any Roms saved inside the roms folder, it will bring up a list, click rom to play.

    Step 5: Saving

    To Save:

    Press the Home Button on your WiiMote
    Select Save, then Save Snapshot
    It should save an exact save of where you left off
    To load it: Home, Load, Select saved SnapShot.

    That's It! Hope it was Useful and worked!!

    Hi all nice easy guide,
    Probably a noob question, but is there anywayz you can run the emulator and roms from a usb hdd, or maybe load the emulator from the sd card and get it to read roms from a usb hdd..

    Thank You

    Abrys , I think he kinda misunderstood how you phrased the question... The emulator (homebrew application) he links to is just to play snes games not ps1 or ds games.. There is another emulator for the wii to play ps1 I think its called wiisx.
    Here is list of emulators for the wii. Each emulator has there own different rom for them. Like ps1 normally come as an ISO, nds normally comes as .nds files and so on..
    I think the way GinsuVictim seen ur post was that you were asking if the snes emulator plays all other rom formats...
    Tnjfitzy out..

    I wish my lawn was emo, so it would cut itself....

    Don't be a noob like me and ask questions straight away, the search feature is your friend... Trust me I know from experience.

    Because you asked if a Super Nintendo emulator will run PSX and DS games.
