    why don't you try using the 'search' function here instead of the search function at the torrent sites, as i'm sure that will yield an answer to your many times duplicated thread.

    You are asking for the location of ROMs.
    Perhaps you should try reading the "Forum rules" link at the top of page somewhere below the search option you seem incapable of using.

    Yeah, I don't think you're allowed to ask for roms around here. If you can't find them on google then you're not trying hard enough. but yeah, it wasn't a good idea to ask that question around here..

    Actually I do not think he is asking if you can provide the roms, but he is asking if any exist cause he does not want to waste his time looking for nonexistant roms.

    As for your question, There is virtual console dumps BUT they are locked to the original owners system and will not work on other wii's. and so far there is no homebrew on the wii so there is no emulators also. However gamecube homebrew does work. but in order to run the gamecube homebrew you either need a modchip or a bootloader like the one datel provides.

    If you was however asking for roms, please dont because that is aginst the rules.

    I hope I helped, and also be sure to check out the site rules.

    i have a modded wii with wiikey in it. I want to d/l and play some N64 roms on my wii(the gamecube part tho). Can someone please give me a walkthrough how? i have some n64 roms on my pc that are ready to burn but how do i burn them? and what emulator should i use?

    i was under the impression that n64 roms didnt work yet

    thanks

    Im not entirely sure if n64 work either, but it may be possable to run it through gamecube linux. But I dont think the gamecubes hardware is powerfull enough to support the N64.

    This tutorial describes exactly that, but you cant replace it with any N64 Rom, just those that run similarly to the original rom, the tutorial also has a brief compatibility guide at the bottom.

    so then there is no way to just throw the n64 emulator and some n64 roms on a dvd and play it in GC mode on the wii? like the snes works.

    You still have to mod your wii but I would like to know what it means by patching for Majoras Mask.

    I'm not sure, but I believe that the patching may have something to do with Majora's Mask needing the Expansion Pak for the Nintendo 64.

    Thread was approaching 4 years without any new posts, lol.


    //edit//
    Might as well link you to the rules. Particularly the ones about not hinting at places to get roms, and the one about reviving a dead topic. I admire your eagerness to help, on your first post nonetheless, but you should be more careful next time. Also, welcome to gbatemp. =]

    Your first post is an epic fail. Try harder next time. And read the rules first. And edit your post before a mod sees it and showers you with their wrath. [​IMG]
