    I'm not sure the best way to do this, or if it can be done. I'm pretty new to Wii modding / hacking, but this is what I have:

    • 4.3 U version
    • Virtual Console Games installed (Neo Geo, SNES, TG16, Genesis, etc.)
    • Soft modded Wii (latest Homebrew installed) with:
      • Retro Arch 1.3.6 installed with many cores / games
      • MAME Wii 1.0 installed with many games
      • SNES9x emulator installed with a few games
      • Genesis GX Plus emulator installed with a few games
      • Hugo emulator installed with a few games
      • FCE Ultra GX installed with a few games

    I'd like to get all my VC games combined into some sort of GUI menu under one window. If its possible, to also combine the Retro Arch cores / games, MAME games, and other stand alone emulators with games into another window on the main Wii Menu. The perfect solution would be where I'd have everything into 1 window.

    Any ideas on the best way to do this (with specific tutorials if required) would be great.

    I am very new to Wii homebrew so I am no expert. But I think if you want all of that in one window/loader you should look into WiiFlow. I cant point you out to any definitive tutorial unfortunately maybe someone else can help.

    I have a similar setup! Wii flow was the only USB loader which managed to work with everything for me.
    Mine is set up with Wii games, Gamecube games and VC/Wiiware games, you just click a button to change the source.
    It does have a source called emulators but I'm not quite sure how that works you'll have to look into it.
    One of the source pages is all the apps you have that show up in the homebrew channel, so you can launch your emulator from that page, which works just fine for me!
    The VC/Wiiware games are installed to an emunand for me, I'm not sure if it displays the system nand. It might be worth setting up an emunand anyway so you don't run out of disk space with VC/Wiiware games.
    This is all from a USB drive, if you're using your SD card I'm sure it would work the same but you'd have the change the path's in the Wii Flow settings

    Would recommend Wii Flow

    Very cool Trace_hunter I'll definitely take a look. I'm still learning so phrases like emunand and nand go over my head lol. I learn quick so I'll do some reading and post questions when I get stuck. Thanks again!
