    Here's a tutorial on setting up a little flash arcade for your Wii, even if it's not hacked.

    How do I use it?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    • Advantages
    • Way faster loading times because the files are on the local network.
    • You can pick from various resolutions so the flash games run faster.
    • Lets you play flash games without a bunch of stupid ads slowing you down.
    • You can play games you've saved even if the internet's down in your area.
    • Sets the games to low quality automatically (but the author of the flash can override this).
    • Requirements
    • A computer running Windows/Linux/OSX that's not from ~1990.
    • A home network (such as having a router).
    • A Wii with the opera/internet channel, it does not need to be hacked/brewed.

    Now, as you can imagine, lots of neat things could be done with this technique. Simply modifying the current files can turn this into an image gallery, and if you have the ability to make flash 7-compatible files (Sothink's Swf Quicker is a cheap alternative to flash 7) and some programming know-how you could turn this into a media player, streaming FLV files or MP3s from your computer onto your wii, without homebrew!

    I got the idea for this from a better (but busy) coder who wishes to remain anonymous, and he tossed around a bunch of other neat ideas.

    However, I will not be developing anything further because I don't have a wii, I just felt the need to make this in hopes that other people would take the idea and build off it. Remember, this can be used even on virgin/new wiis as long as they have the opera/internet channel, so if you program a useful web application then even non-tempers/brewers will be able to benefit from it!

    Again, I don't actually have a Wii to test on, so if I made some mistake (like if a page isn't centered properly or the largest flash sizes could be increased by ~40 pixels to fill remaining screen space) please post and I'll do my best to correct it.

    By clicking globally allow you're defeating the entire purpose of NoScript. Just saying.

    Not for the purposes of this tutorial I'm not, where it's only making use of one of noscript's features. If you want to write a tutorial up on what javascript it and how it can be good and bad and how it works in web pages and all that crap to educate people on proper use of noscript, I'll gladly link to it.

    Shame cause you took a lot of effort and it's quite good and easy to follow, yet we still see people asking how to play flash on the Wii [​IMG]

    Anyway, don't be disheartened. I think it's great [​IMG]
