    Recently there was a few different methods I read about to allow playing some VC games off SD card.
    Has it been perfected Ive been out of the loop for 3 weeks so im not sure if the answer is yes or no now..

    Im looking to install 10-20 whatever number of VC titles NES, SNES, N64? etc on SD card and have them launch from the SD card saving me blockage space.

    If there is a 100% working method please let me know what its called and a link would be appreciated. The early methods have limited compatibility and some speed issues from what I read.

    Yes VC games are now fully playable/perfected. They have managed to dump all of them perfectly into WADs and all of them install fine... provides u follow the instructions to install them ......... but emulator channels are the future... leave VC games alone

    Turn around...
    Nope, you can't. With WAD Manager however you can store a bunch of them on a SD card, and then install and uninstall what you like. Not as good, but eh.

    the only thing you can do is run an emulator channel that reads the game from an sdcard

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Yeah, and in terms of compatibility, there are still a number of N64 games that won't work over VC or emulator. Everything else works I think. And seeing as we now have USB support, we'll be getting compatible homebrew soon. That will solve space issues.
    Though to do what you want, I reckon we'll need custom firmware. Hopefully that's not too far off.

    the wii doesn't even look at the sdcard for any kind of executable at all.

    The only thing you can do is waiting a direct boot from Sd/Usb.
