    Hey, I was trying to find a way to use both usb ports to play games. One port having a usb with gamecube games. And one port for wii games. Is it possible?

    The link is not dead.
    It's still on the first page of this forum:
    http://gbatemp.net/forums/wii-hacking.108/
    thread name : Wii USB Port1.


    To explain briefly :
    You need a cIOS compatible with port1, and only 4 cIOS are working for Wii games:

    - Hermes cIOS v4
    - Hermes cIOS v5 (and 5.1)
    - d2x cIOS v9 (beta)
    - d2x cIOS v10-alt (beta53)


    If you want port1 for additional controllers (microphones, wiispeak, etc.), then you need a cIOS based on IOS58.


    If you want Gamecube games, then you don't need cIOS at all, but both ports are working but with restrictions.
    DIOS MIOS : Either port0 OR port1, if you plug both then games must be on port0
    Devolution: As it's based on IOS58, I suppose the default port is Port1, so if you plug both then put games on port1. (I didn't test it, maybe it works on either port).
