    // Stella atari 2600 emulator for Wii
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////


    Introduction:
    --------------

    This project is based on the atari 2600 opensource emulator called stella. You can
    find the original sources on its sourceforge page:

    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=41847

    This version uses the same sources than the original. It uses wii-linux to run on a
    wii, cwiid for wiimote interface, and the SDL libraries for this system.

    What you need:
    --------------

    - A console ready to run homebrew
    - Wiimote
    - SDCard


    Installation:
    --------------

    - Copy the "app" and "stella" directories (and its contents) to the root of yout SDCard.

    - Put your roms inside the "stella" directory, in the root of your sdcard

    - Put the SDCard on the front slot sdcard adapter of your wii

    - Launch the Homebrew channel, and load the Stella┬┤s .dol file



    Instructions:
    -------------



    When the program starts, it tells you to press the "1" and "2" buttons of your wiimote. Wait until the emulator
    starts, an then press 1 and 2 at the same time, until the wiimote's leds starts to blink (you can press them at any moment).
    Here is the button relation between the wiimote and the keyboard:

    [A]: Enter (select an option or the rom)
    [Home]: Escape (to return to "roms select" menu)
    : Tabulator (to navigate through the menu buttons)
    [-]: F1 (Reset) (in a game)
    [+]: F2 (Select) (in a game)

    First player: Wiimote
    [1]: Pad button
    [Digital pad]: Arrows

    Second player: Nunchuck
    [C]: Pad button
    [Analog pad]: Arrows

    Thanks to
    ----------

    - The gc-linux team for their effort in porting linux to the wii console
    - The stella team, for their great emulator
    - The CWiid develeoppers, for their great applications to interface the wiimote
