    I have found an Bug in the Wii Game Illvelo, which lets you change Wii Games on the fly!
    You only need Starfall installed and an GC Controller.

    How to:
    Start the Game while the GC Controller is connected, when the Game has started, remove the GC Controller and you are done.
    To change the Game, just change the Game Disc and press the Reset Button or Press "Wi Menu" in the Home Button Menu.
    The Wii will directly load the new Game [​IMG]

    When you launch the recovery menu, the Wii stays at the recovery menu no matter what. The system menu will never ever get launched until the Wii fully shuts down.

    So you can play whatever game you want, reset/home button, and put in another Wii game.

    You cannot play Gamecube games via this method, nor can you ever achieve to go back to the system menu unless you shut the Wii off.

    EDIT: I dont understand why, but that game takes you to the recovery menu with a Gamecube Controller. Perhaps all games do.

    Yeah that is really strange. And it really only works with Illvelo.
    Maybe has the Game more Bugs..... [​IMG]

    @Tichinde925

    You have to remove the GC Controller, then it works.

    The Game starts the recovery menu, if Starfall is installed.
    Pretty strange Bug.

    The ability to switch games quickly would be VERY nice.

    PS3 has a wonderful little quirk that allows it. "Reset Game" in the home menu will load the inserted disc, even if it's a different one.
