    OK.

    I've got loads of ROMS on my PC that I have had for years. My wife loves playing them, something about taking her back to her youth (Didn't realise the games were that old......... don't tell her I said that..LOL)

    So, now that she had discovered the Wii, and I've dragged her kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, I was hoping there was a way to put these roms onto the wii.

    The loves the old Sega Mega Drive games, street fighter etal,and Paperboy on the C64.

    Can anyone suggest a way to get these to play oin the wii? Can they be converted to WADs?

    OK thanks.

    1 question. Does the ROM have to be the same regiopn as the Wii, or are roms not usually region coded

    I'd also like to apply the same question to making wads via autoinjectuwadinjectorv3, i.e. does the rom have to be ion the same region as the wii, or is there no region coding on roms?

    no, if you're using an emulator. I'm not sure about wads.

    wads are regionlocked. But that's easy to defeat.
    preloader for example can make the system menu regionfree.

    OK, but if I am using a ROM injecxtor, is it the ROM or the WAD I am injecting into that needs to be the correct region?
