Use U8Mii to extract the extracted WAD & choose the 00000002.app from the Flash Placeholder (PRO) (USA) folder.

4. Injecting the Flash SWF Game. Get any Flash game & rename your SWF to "menu.swf" copy it & paste it in "Flash Placeholder (USA) (PRO)/00000002.app_OUT/content/menu.swf" with the game you want to inject.

What are the best Flash games to port to the Wii?
There are a lot of great Flash AS2 games that can be ported to Wii but here's a small incomplete list of the Flash AS2 games that can be injected to Flash WiiWare WADs:
  • Alien Hominid Flash
  • Metal Slug Flash
  • A Koopa's Revenge 1
  • A Koopa's Revenge 2 (i tested v2.0 SWF and it works)
  • Ultimate Flash Sonic
  • Bloxorz Flash
  • The World's Hardest Game
  • Portal: The Flash Version
  • Tetris N-Blox
  • Henry Stickmin: Breaking the Bank
  • Henry Stickmin: Escaping the Prison
  • Scooby Doo: Hurdle Race
  • PAC-MAN Flash port by Paul Neave
  • Dad 'N Me
  • Doodle Jump Flash
This list isn't complete because there are more Flash games that can be injected in Flash Wii WADs, but with the rule that can't play Flash AS3 WADs.

Are you using my Adobe Flash SWF WiiWare iNJECTOR by me, saulfabreg (@SaulFabre)?: https://gbatemp.net/download/adobe-flash-swf-wiiware-injector-beta-version.37084/

This only works with @Larsenv's Flash Placeholder (NTSC-U/PAL) and Back to Nature (PAL) WADs.

Flash Placeholder WADs can be found in MarioCube.

Greetings ;)
