I remember there was a group called 0rangeChicken releasing GBA wads and, as far as I've heard, their project is discontinued. Is there a pack I can download with all the GB/GBC/GBA wads they finished, or a tutorial to make my own?

Yep, linking to the WADs themselves is illegal, due to the fact that they contain ROMs. I don't know if a tutorial exists, as the way they were doing it involved custom tweaking of VBA GX on a per-game basis.

I think 0RANGECHICKEN has an IRC somewhere. Although, I don't know if it's still active though (as I rarely use that type of client).

All else I can say is that, google is your friend for this one. As no one can do anything here for you without at least breaching the rules.

So there's this new thing called google... ;)

0RANGECHICKEN were closed down and fined, their downloads were removed from their hompage and the page itself was closed. They currently reside on the EFNET network, you can *easily* find the correct channel by just googling it.

By the way, why bother with WAD's if there are emulators out there which work just fine?

If that's the case, wouldn't it be easier to link to a VBA GX tutorial and let OP find the ROMs on their own? ROMs are easier to find than the WADs he's searching for.

I'd rather have individual games as channels on my Wii, it looks cleaner and I don't have to keep my SD card in the Wii at all times.

I went to 0C EFNET IRC and... I don't think there's anything even there...
I found one download link, but it was on MegaUpload so that's pretty much a dead-end.

Would it be against the site rules for someone to link these wads to me by email or something?
... or is there infact a tutorial?

If it's at all possible, I don't know if you'd be able to ask for mirror links.

But... Like I said, google is your friend and there are links available to download them (through a certain way, which you'll be able to find out on your own with the right information at your fingertips).

The best alternative would be to either use vbagx or WiiMednafen.
