    Here's how it works,

    Put the .elf file on your SD card (in the front of your Wii)
    Put the SNES roms in the \snes9x\roms folder on the SD card
    Create \snes9x\saves on the SD card as well.

    Load the TP hack

    poof, your greated with the SNES emulator menu. use your GameCube controller to play. You can remap the buttons, load and save states, change ROMS, and re-boot your Wii.

    I've tested EarthBound and Mario RPG and they work beautifully.

    There is no saving to the Wii itself (other than the TP hack file) and it's perfectly safe. (the Wii blue light stay's on, wish there was a way to turn that off, lol)

    Pretty sure it can be played from a DVD, but I don't know anything about that.

    The Wii will never accidentally boot the emulator because it never runs any external code itself. It's the flaw in Twilight Princess that allows code to be run. I'm pretty sure the Wii doesn't even care about any files on the card that aren't in any of the folders it uses.

    Classic Controller support doesn't really work... just tried it...

    Menu is in Spanish, but that's only cosmetic... when I try to load a game, it crashes the emu... guess I'll go back to my GC controller untill someone fixes this.. [​IMG]

    Don't worry about the channel... I've tried it, and it's really lame. It's based off the GameCube version of Snes9x, and I still haven't figured out how to load games, or even where to put them. It's just better to use the TP hack to play it. Wait until someone redoes the channel for the Wii with full Wii support.

    I've got the homebrew channel installed, and it reading snes9x from my SD card, but I'm having some trouble loading the roms.

    I've got two roms (.smc format) on the F:/snes9x/roms folder, and I choose Load Roms -> Wii SD...

    It says reading and then pops up a screen with a bunch of numbers....then it just sits there.

    Any idea if I'm missing anything? Been looking for a solution for an hour or so now.

    Front SD roms go in SD:\roms\. The snes9x folder was used for SD cards read by a SD Gecko.
