    ScummVM For point-and-click adventure games if you like that sort of thing.
    DOSBox Wii For classic DOS-games.
    Nintendont Not technically an emulator, but if you don't have a GameCube controller then this is the best way to play GC games on Wii.

    There is also MAME for Wii which can play a lot of older arcade games.

    OpenTyrian Wii is also nice to have, not really an emulator but rather an engine.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I am using the right emulators and there are a few more I can explore.

    GBA is a lot better now than it used to be. Retroarch 1.0.0.2 will do you well.

    That list is the original one I referenced. I then realized Retroarch was not on there (As you mentioned) and some of the latest updates were not on there for some emulators. The updates can be found on this forum!

    Also Not64 is not on the link.

    Is there anything specific i need to setup to play CPS1, CPS2 withRetroarch Wii 1.0.0.2 CPS1 & CPS2 core? Games I load for CSP1 immediately error out, code dump and go back to the HB channel. I am trying to open zip files. What do I need to correct?

    Retroarch Wii for almost anything. Newest build (1.0.0.3 beta) is working somehow good, now I can play Out Run Arcade with FBA core without slowdowns.

    Make sure that you have a FBA compatible romset. Seems like you have a MAME romset.
    click on attached list-pics to see what games work with the arcade (FBA, NeoGeo, CPS1 & CPS2) cores

    Thanks for the info. Are these complete lists? I would be looking for USA roms.

    I got a FBANext CPS1 set and it did not work too. Maybe I need to look elsewhere?

    That's strange, I used my wavebird controller and worked fine. Are you using a third party GC controller?

    No, an original platinum Gamecube controller in a second release white Wii.
