So you could use the ROMs in emulators and whatnot?
That dosn´t make sense PC is even more powerfull you can download roms at any rom site i can´t link you to it but that site is a paradise of emulation and download a emulator on the same site what do you want to play?
I know where I could download ROMs if I wanted to, but that's not what I want to do.
What do you want to do?
you can´t emulate wii u or wii u vc so if you want that you can´t do it
With a tool like TCPGecko or cafiine you can grab whatever ROM the Virtual Console is using and actually play them in emulators on your PC, yes. With cafiine you can even send a different ROM file to your Wii U and play it there.
I want to extract the ROMs from the VC games. I've done this with my regular Wii VC games, and wanted to see if I could do it on Wii U

That's exactly what I wanted to know, thanks!
Some ROMs are different then the corresponding cart dumps by the way. not sure why?
Most work tho. I tried running Animal Crossing on the Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training VC and it somewhat worked, however it crashed after the character driving the taxi
yeah I forget what rom it was now but the sound data used a different compression. for some roms these changes may just be bug fixes
So same can be done with Wii games? Not vWii but Wii games that are available on Wii U
It's probably possible now (but no one really cares to develop tools to do it) since we have access to practically all of vWii (what the games run in) and enough access to the Wii U's data to do anything practical.
EDIT: gamesquest1 has a good point. This may take a little more trickery than I initially thought... I have no reason to believe it's impossible, though.
probably not, atleast until we can dump our tickets to get the title keys as afaik booting into vwii will remove cafiine/pygecko so no way to dump anything once you boot up a vc wii game as it plays in vwii mod with some additional patches for gamepad controls (i guess that ^ may be true, it might be possible to do something with vwii mode to dump the game, but idk tbh as i assume wii vc games can only be launched via the wiiu homescreen (i have no idea really) which could be a problem
as for everything else,
n64 and NDS roms can be dumped via pygecko by simply dumping the file system
Nes,Snes,GBA all need to be dumped from ram and may be revisions/patched roms
Why would you do this. Just dl the roms
legal"ish" backup vs you dirty stinkin pirate
but nah apparently some roms had little extras tagged on them, i think that's really the only reason to check if they are using stock roms or revised
You can dump the from RAM or TCGP Gecko, but they are 1:1 the same as current dumps found online, so it's rather pointless.
some of the VC ROMs are different. MD5 them
the games I tested were the same.
here you go
The Definitive Guide to Wii U Hacking -> "How do I dump ROMs from VC games?"
only one i know was megaman battle network gba, never really played the game, but the person who i helped dump it said the VC version had some extra items unlocked , and the rom we dumped from ram was indeed different.....im assuming that was done because some items required network play or something to unlock, so nintendo/capcom just unlocked them as the network feature doesn't work on wiiu.......but thats just a guess
