    Added Wii-DOOM / Wii-HERETIC / Wii-HEXEN / Wii-STRIFE (2014 reports)

    Replaced
    "DeSmuME Wii" link with "DeSmuME Wii (unofficial r253)" which allows a few more games to run propperly (but still pretty bad lol)

    Replaced "WiiSX" with "WiiSXR" which is an unofficial update that adds USB 2.0 support and some more game fixes making multiple games run smoother. (and some other updates such as wiiU controller support ect)

    You're missing GCIT, the gamecube iso tool. Its made by the wii backup manager guy, but its standalone and incredibly useful for trimming gamecube files, and putting the iso in a plug and play folder with the game code etc. No guesswork needed.

    Awesome list! If games count for this list, maybe you should add wiispace. Its looks are deceiving, it's a really well designed retro styled space shooter which is really fun and challenging, and supports up to four players. A great little gem imo. :)

    Modifying GC images isn't really a good idea. There's no way to verify them to make sure they're good afterwards.

    Replaced "Not64" with "wii64 beta 1.2-20171121" as wii64 recently got updated with an updated videoplugin that makes it run better then Not64, the download link forwards to a compiled version by FIX94

    Replaced "RetroArch (latest)" with "RetroArch (v1.5.0)" as anything passed 1.5.0 seems to cause lag on multiple cores, mainly audio related issues, wii processing issue?

    One of my projects I have in mind is getting my Wii out and rehacking it with the latest stuff and this looks like a wicked cool updated one stop shop for all my needs and some things I didn't even know I needed but now I do!

    Great post and thank you :)

    Not that I know of. I don't think the Linux kernel can switch IOSes when it's running.

    Do you have any links for channel forwarders or wads? Or can I use Retroarch for that? I want to run the emulators from the channel, not specific games.

    @OP:
    DUDE! Update Retroarch to 1.6.9 as it works perfect without any Sound Issues.
    ALSO ADD THIS NOTE: "Updating RetroArch to newer version (1.6.9) and loading it on Regular Wii could lead to Black Screen. If that happens, delete original boot.dol and rename ONE CORE to "boot.dol" and place it on SD:Apps/retroarch-wii/ folder"
