Anyway to make Wii games boot up directly when you enter WiiMode?

    This, to me, would be an extremely practical use of homebrew:

    I have a ton of Wii game disks. I've been buying new games regularly practically since the Wii came out six years ago, and it'll be a long time until I have anywhere near the same number of Wii U games. So while I love being able to play Assassin's Creed 3, my Wii U is, at least for now, largely a box for playing Wii games.

    For this reason, I HATE how unintegrated Wii mode is. It's so annoying to have to insert the Wii disk, boot into Wii mode, then load the disk channel and boot into the game AGAIN!

    I never really play Wii Ware games, and while I did use the homebrew channel, it's something I would give up for the ability to start Wii game disks easier. Is there any way to make it so that as soon as the Wii menu loads, it AUTOMATICALLY boots the game disk? This would make playing Wii games on my Wii U feel like a much more integrated experience.

    There's got to be something that lets you do it, right...?

    once someone gets a preiiloader like setup running on WiiMode correctly, my guess is that someone may be able to write a autoboot patch to do exactly that.

    That would be a really useful thing to do. I do often boot into the vWii to play game channels, but having the option to auto-boot into disc games would be super awesome.

    To be honest, if they had the ability to load it directly, they might as well have combined it with the Wii U Disc channel, and required a Wiimote to continue.

    An autoboot app with Priiloader would be really straight forward (and region free)

    It would be straight forward, but does it actually exist? I know you can't use Priiloader yet, but it would be nice to know that I have an app I can use once Priiloader is updated.

    So, a lot of time has passed since I origanally asked this question. Is it any more doable now?

    well you can hold down the B button to fastboot in to Wii mode now but you can't auto boot the disc.

    Unfortunately, the B button really doesn't do anything to make Wii games feel more integrated.
