    Is there any way I can make a self-booting emulator disc for the Atari 2600 console? I'm playing a prank on my friend. I recently sold him my modded Wii and he asked me to burn a bunch of games for him, and what I'm going to do is burn him a handful of discs with just ET and Custer's Revenge on them as a joke.

    Anybody know if a self-booting AtaWii disc is possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    -trucha sign disk

    LOL! I´d love to see that person´s face!

    I doubt that a self booting Atari game would ever be possible, and even so, what a waste of dvd-r that would be.

    Still, just to see some kid sitting there with a WiiMote waiting to do some serious waggling have E.T. load up!!

    Ahhhh, Kodak/ Master Card moment! Priceless.

    Just burn him the Wii BackupDisc. [​IMG]

    He wants to embed the rom into the emulator first (I made a topic asking about that a while back)
