    Is there something to make this easier to do?

    I managed that a little bit ago, but it's kind of a waste of a disc, unless I wanna make a multi-iso disc, which I really should.

    So you just edited the ROM to be a .gcm and burned it to a DVD and it ran? What exactly did you do?

    This is awesome if you didn't need to put an emulator on there. It means the Wii really has hardware (or at least software running in the background) for Wii/GCN/N64.

    All I did was use a program to replace a .n64 file in a .gcm file with the game of my choice.

    As far as I know, no emulators used, but I can't be sure.

    EDIT: Screenshot of program/replace file.

    Dunno if this has been done for a while or not.

    that is a "gamecube" game (zelda) i.e. a nintendo-made emulator running the rom. That's why you can replace it but it won't work with a lot of games.
