    I looked for GameCube cheats on Wii and Can't find anything. I dwnld a cheat disc but it doesnot work. So is there any way?


    Same thing with Wiiware/VC. Can you modify the values to have cheats on?

    I create my own codes for these games using USB gecko. If I am bored and I think I made a somewhat unique code, I would submit them to (I haven't submitted any codes in a while) :

    http://www.geckocodes.org/

    As a player wanting to use codes, you will not need the USB gecko hardware, you just need the software end. The software I believe that we use now is something like Gecko 1.9.X

    I believe you need to patch an IOS to use the rebooter function or channel load function. It's been at least 2 years since I done this and the newer wii's probably have different methods to do this.

    This software can be downloaded using the homebrew browser and updated there as well. I don't remember the way you want to set up the SD card to load specific codes as I use the USB gecko but it should be pretty straight forward with some guides.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Few questions:
    Where I can buy it? It seems to be sold out everywhere...
    Is SD Gecko the same as USB Gecko? Will I be able to cheat on SD Gecko as well?

    I believe the USB gecko was discontinued. I bought mine a looong time ago so I don't know any good places that sell them now.

    SD gecko would work with gamecube. I have never used one before or actually seen one, but it should be pretty similar!

    So I can put cheats files on it and cheat in Wiiware and gamecube?
    Does it require to change values on a computer at the time of running of game?

    So you run a game and there is a window with cheats and then you run a game?
    How does it work?

    NGC-No, you'd need additional hardware
    Wiiware/VC Titles-Use a homebrew called "Gecko OS". Get the latest version, it has support for Wiiware.

    Sorry to bump this but if I wanted to cheat in VC/Wiiaware games such as Paper Mario (American or Japanese) or something like Arkanoid Plus (American). Get a GCT file put it on the SD card (mine is a 16 GB SDHC, lexar) run the game through Gecko (1.9.3.2?) with what hooktype?


    I have a couple of GCT files except in Wii Cheat Code Manager for PC, when I open one of the txt files for the VC/Wiiware games no GAMEID is given, there's a game name albeit it's what Nintendo calls it (NAEE or NAAE, JADE, etc). How would this be rectified?
