    I'm looking to find a way to change the WAD "type" of some of my WAD files so that they are sorted properly in my Wiiware/VC loader. For example, some of my NEO GEO WADS are sorted in with my Virtual Console Arcade WADS. Showmiiwads doesn't appear to offer this feature. Any suggestions?

    I would think that the Titles should be properly identified by the first byte of the title name. For example NES VC titles are 00010001-Fxxx while WiiWare titles are 00010001-Wxxx. I don't know if your Wiiware/VC loader follows this convention, but I would verify the Title ID with the WiiBrew List to see if this might be the issue. You can then contact the coder(s) of your Wiiware/VC loader to see if they can address your issue.
