I have a 3.2 firmware Wii. Playing my games from USB loader from my external HDD.

I know that Gamecube games can be played on the Wii; but how would I get a backup Gamecube game to play?

Thx!!

you can download the program called Devolution from the forums here to copy your gc games to the drive, and as long as you have the latest version of usb loader gx, you can see the game in the loader, and tell it to load via devolution

Devolution is for wii

@theweAve
your question can be (mis)read two ways......
do you want to know how to get the backup, or how to get a backup to work?

if its the latter then _acid_'s post will help
if its the first then I'll have to PM you
:)

What is the best solution for GC games from Wii USB? From what i understand:
Devolution is for ripped copies of games with antipiracy measures
DIOS MIOS is weaker?
DIOS MIOS lite is for running them off of the SD card?

here's some links that might help you come to a conclusion:
http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Devolution_Compatibility_List
http://gbatemp.net/threads/devolution-public-release.330554/

I demand you add a poll for that question. ^_^
(Devolution, DM(L), both, none)

Anyway, I'm using both. It just depends on the game.
Also, there are some games that just won't play with one and work fine with the other and visa versa.

The other advantages I see with each
Devolution :
- Plays sound in audio streaming games.
- Online play for Phantasy Star games.
- Faster start-up load times.
- Play from the SD card OR from USB without having to re-install the other version.
- Multi-disk game disk swapping
- Potential for future features that will simply not be possible in DM(L) such as BBA, microphone and GC keyboard emulation and WiiMote/Classic Controller/Nunchuck support.
- Better memory card emulation

DM(L) :
- You don't need the original disk to "install" the already existing disk image
- Widescreen hack
- Video mode patches (PAL, NTSC, progressive scan)
- Compatible with trimmed disk images to save space
- Compatible with FST for faster in-game load times
- Reset and power off button combinations
