    I've found a forwarder linked in this thread, so I'll give it a try.

    Unfortunately said forwarder doesn't work like the ones I have for my other emulators do and gives me an "SD not initialized" error, and since I'm partly setting this up for less tech-savvy friends where forwarders would make using this stuff much easier, if I can't find a solution by tomorrow (when the Wii is being returned) then it's back to VBA GX for now. It may not emulate as well, but the setup works and is much easier to configure.

    Hi!

    Endrift has updated mGBA to 0.6.3, with numerous fixes, some on a general level, while others are specially for the Wii.

    You can get it here:
    https://mgba.io/2018/04/14/mgba-0.6.3/

    Here's the changelog for 0.6.2, which was short-lived as it introduced a few bugs fixed on 0.6.3:
    https://mgba.io/2018/04/03/mgba-0.6.2/

    I haven't tried it yet, I'll do it whenever is possible, but it's great to see it keep evolving and getting better, and the Wii version still being supported!

    By the way, I tried a bit the official release of 0.6.3, and one difference with previous versions on Wii is that for some reason when I boot it, my TV loses the Wii's video signal for a while (around 10 seconds) as it seems to try to change into another resolution, and then comes back. Didn't happen with 0.6.1 or earlier.

    I already pointed it in mGBA's forum, but I'm glad to say that if you download the latest nightly it has been improved. With the nightly, it still seems to force a change in resolution or something, but it's much quicker.

    My screen is slightly off center to the left due to my crt. Can I edit config.INI to move the screen a little to the right?

    Hope this helps out someone. I have made a mGBA Wii & vWii channel. Tested the vWii channel & works well. Nothing fancy, just the basic stuff.

    It is a normal channel. I've never used the nightly builds, is there a significant advantage? if there is, simple as replacing the .dol file which i could do if you are interested.
