    Getting Homebrew Apps on the Wii Menu

    Is it possible?

    I have downloaded several emulators, but can only load them up by going through the Homebrew Channel

    Is there no way these titles can appear on my Wii Menu?

    You can install the emulators on the wii system menu. i WOULD NOT recommend it to first time hackers as it could brick your wii. If you still want to do it install bootmii as either BOOT2 or IOS, make a nand backup and install preloader.

    Just google the name of the emulator and add .WAD and use wad installer 2.1
    OR

    Just download the VC game and install it with wad installer 2.1

    I hope I don't sound like an idiot here, But seeing as Wiis are already capable of running downloaded N64 games from the wii shop channel [natively] in the first place, why is an N64 emulator on even needed?

    You're right an emulator is not always required.

    I recently installed Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario as a channel, they just install as WAD files and appear as channels.

    there are a number of games that are not available as downloadable content. also, in terms of system resources, each title downloaded from the wii shop channel (to my knowledge) contains its own emulator. This can take up a lot of space if you are trying to add a collection of all the good games from SNES and N64. by using an emulator one only needs the executable code stored once, leaving more room for ROM game files

    He's right, eventually all those games installed can take up a fair amount of blocks up.

    Stick to an emulator and load each game as you play it

    Thanks, makes a lot of sense now. I read somewhere as well that it's also possible to run downloaded VC games off an external device. That would also be convenient.
