    I bought a lot of Virtual Console games and now I want to dump them for a friend. Does anybody know a tool for that?

    It's not really appropriate to ask how to pirate games here, but here's a general outline to backup your VC titles:

    1. Dump your Wii's NAND with a file system dumper homebrew app
    2. Find the VC game's title folder (found in WII_FS/TITLE/00010001/xxxxxxxx, try opening or in the folder in a hex editor, near the beginning of the file you should see the game's title)
    3. Find the associated ticket for the title (found in WII_FS/TICKET/00010001/xxxxxxxx.tik, same number as title in step 2)
    5. Find BlAzE's WADpacker
    6. Copy all of those files into a folder together and use the WADpacker to make an installable .wad
    7. Install the .wad on your Wii using waninkoko's wadmanager homwbrew
