    Just wondering. The compatability list says it won't work but I wanted to see if anyone has got it to work at all. One of my fave games ever so I was really looking forward to playing it.

    It doesn't boot at all. It's missing some patches.

    Better ask this in the Nintendont thread, there are all developers and probebly see your message there.

    It's actually pretty hard to "boot" PSO on anything other than a Gamecube with a Network Adapter, at least in my experience. I think it works on DIOS MIOS now, but it took a while and a good couple of revisions to get it to boot.

    Devolution won't help him on a Wii U as it does not accept miniDVD's and finding an adapter for MiniDiscs that will work with a slot-loading drive is pretty much impossible.

    Devolution lets you verify the disc on your Wii, and still play it off an ISO on your Wii U. It's a huge hassle, but possible for people who didn't get rid of their Wii. But the whole Anti-Piracy thing is really rather ridiculous. People could just go to GameStop, buy a used copy of whatever they want, verify the disc once, and return the game to GameStop for a refund.
