    does anyone think it could be possible to emulate the wii system menu (NOT TO RUN GAMES) on the PC so wads/channels/homebrew could be tested
    One big advantage would be you could see if your wii would get bricked
    I might be thinkning of something that is totaly stupid but just had a thought and wondered what everyone else thinks.
    feel free to tell me to shut up.

    The Dolphin emulator can run a few wii games.

    Everything is possible.
    I think that you know that, so why this thread?
    Are you trying to get some coders to make it for you [​IMG]

    You know that, but you can't say for sure that he knew it. Just letting him know. No harm in doing so.

    thats it you have hit the nail on the head a WAD checker would be really good, not sure how it would work will read up about wads and see what there all about (i hate WADS).

    You would have to look if everything is correct packed and dont use wrong compression methods.
    Would need for sure some work in coding.
