    I've just hacked my pre 2008 Wii and like not worrying about disks getting scratched.

    Years ago I had a small collection of consoles and feel okay about playing emulated versions of games I actually purchased many years ago. So I tried to install WiiFlow Plugins. But the .ini files need some finessing. But it's hard to know which is which. For example, FCEUGX is the emulator plugin for the Nintendo Entertainment System. A name like FCEUGX_NES might be easier to identify. But I didn't write them and I've no room to complain. I also have had no luck googling for a list of which plugin emulates what device. If anyone happens to have a list handy of which emulator handles which system, it'd be much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    well you have to understand the name to know why it have this name lol I think this FC is for Famicom (familyComputer), E is for emulator, U for Ultra e GX... I don't know but a lt of things use this XD I get until the "FCE" alone, the" U" I needed to search about the emulator to know .. so yeah it's not a random name at all
