    I haven't even done the TH yet, but I was just wondering... either with the TH or with a modchip, would it be possible to make a channel for one of your own games such as a SNES/NES game? For example, like when you download a VC game, and it's in its own little "channel", is it possible to have your ROMs have their own channel?

    It might be possible to configure an emulator to auto load a game, but why would you want to?

    It's much smarter to just have a generic emulator that supports an entire library of games.

    Well, would it be possible to make a channel for an emulator?

    by downloading a VC wad, and injecting your own ROM, and a custom banner/save image, in effect, you are creating your own channel...

    I believe that's what your trying to do. And before you ask how, just look in the Wii/Hacking subsection, and you'll see a TON of threads explaining how.

    Yes, and channels for emulators have already been made, even with their own banners and icons.

    EDIT: Assigning quote information.

    I guess, but the ability to have an entire library of games accessible from one channel/emulator seems more appealing, to me.

    The price of a 2GB SD card, when compared to the 512MB internal, is convincing enough.
