    Wherever you want me, baby.
    LOL! See, stop spreading this NONSENSE! The PS2 is LEAGUES EASIER to emulate. And in fact, the PS2 isn't even very hard to emulate in comparison to other consoles. C'mon. The PS2 was far weaker than the GameCube and the Xbox. Jesus Christ guys...


    PLEASE STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION. I see this shit daily on this forum and it's confusing the fuck out of noobs, and the misinformation is so frustrating. If you don't know what you're talking about, shut up, don't even comment. Christ almighty.

    why do people think its emulation? nintendont does not emulate gc, the gc uses the same assests as wii games except less, so nintendont just redirects the calls, its not emulating the gc at all... people should read, everyone thinks nintendont is a gc emulator ...

    Never said anything about Nintendont. The Wii U has native GC support but Nintendo turned it off, with home brew you can re enable it and using Nintendont as a loader for the games

    There is nothing such as "native Gamecube support". It's relying on Wii mode to run Gamecube games.

    Yep. It´s more like an Interpreter similiar to GBARunner2 for the DS.

    If it’s relying on vWii then if in terms of power if Wii U>Wii then doesn’t that mean it could emulate GC

    Wii mode is not emulated though. It's being virtualised.
    And the fun story about this is, Gamecube mode is being virtualised in Wii mode.

    Just to make it clear: Virtualisation != Emulation

    So on a Family Edition Wii with no GC support. How can it play GC games through Nintendont? I don’t get it

    The Wii Family Edition has the same Hardware as the regular Wii underneath minus the GC Controller and Memory Card Slot.

    it is being virtualised. Only a few assets like controllers and memory cards are being emulated.

    guys need to learn that it has nothing to do with how old a console is.

    its how well coders can replicate the ps2 hardware in code for pc hardware, the ps2 is harder because it uses custom hardware by sony.

    i think it will be a while before you see ps2 emulation and a good compatibility rate, why do you think sony ended its emulation support because it wasnt that great even on the ps3 with the emotion chip.

    the wii u is not much better than the ps3 and its had more focus on the ps2 emulation side.

    So in theory you could just solder a few things and you could play GC games on a family Wii without Nintendont, or would it still spit them out?

    There is a lot more that goes into emulation than just raw power.

    That's a direct quote from someone who is a coder for pcsx2.

    Guys, Stop, Wii u CAN EMULATE N64 GAMES.
    Compatibility is not the best, but it can, can it not?
    Just because its not perfect, doesn't mean it does not work.

    You are most likely better off getting a pc to emulate ps2.
    its certainly possible, but not really Plausible.

    It's possibly, %100, I know this for a fact
    You have to modify the Dd drive to get it to read gc games
