Are we going to see customise/modded WADs in the future?

    Much like the mods to ROMS for PC emulation, or maybe custom bugfixes to games? Like new skins on Zelda & Mario 64 for instance.

    This could open a whole lot of possibilities but i don't really see it happening.

    you can play patched games, i have made zelda parallele(sp) worlds and injected it other patches like that might work.

    Yeah, Super Metroid Redesign and Parallel Worlds have been released in WAD format, so it's totally possible.

    Do I understand right that this works on the Zelda VC WAD? This is what I meant, if so - w00t! If so, can I have the original on there at the same time?

    If not, I take it you mean a SNES ROM file which means I will need to install a SNES emu which I wasn't bothered about but now I think I would do.

    EDIOT: I see that the latest version is 1.1 and that is an emu version and not a VC version which is 1.0. Best to use emu then?

    you can inject the hacked snes rom into a wad, so you will have a channel in your wii menu with a hacked game, and you can edit the banner and icon and such so it would look like a legit vc wad (banner edit tut here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=91206 )

    Thanks! Wicked, you can even change the manual! I wish I had the skillz to edit the VC manuals so they were as detailed as the paper originals. Super Metroid is missing that lovely map.

    As for this, surely someone's already made a banner that goes well? I'm hoping there's an official banner to go with the game.

    The n64 emulater that comes with the current wads isnt perfect. so not all games (read almost no n64games) work.

    Aww... But there's an SSBB one. Oh well, maybe that's the reason Nintendo hasn't put MM on Wii VC, because some N64 games don't work.

    i believe that MM doesnt work because the n64 emulator doesnt support the 4mb expantion pack yet wait untill something newer comes out
