So would it be possible to switch the rom data in VC games?

    Going by the fact a VC game is just a rom, do you think someone would be able to work out a way of doing it?

    Obviously the wii would still detect it as 'Mario 64' by its ticket or whatever, but the rom that loads in it would be, say Banjo-Kazooie.

    This would mean a lot for the people eagerly awaiting N64 (or of course anything else the VC doesn't have) Emulation >.>

    Ive tried replacing Mario Kart 64 with Killer Instinct Gold and Golden Eye, but WAD Installer always errors when it gets to the 000005 file (where the rom is) so im not sure what is making the WAD Installer error.

    Someone has gotten it to work with Pilotwings 64. It's the first ever injected release. It hijacks Sin and Punishment. Works great. [​IMG]

    Yep, khuong is almost finished with Goldeneye 64. Everything works but the saving right now.

    I read that in the other thread. However, didn't the person say that there were some graphical glitches when he did it, or did he try it with a different Vitrual Console game (Sin and Punishment), getting better compatibility?

    I'm in the irc chat channel right now with some of the guys. Not sure if I am able to say the irc address here without getting banned.

    PM me if you want to go to it.

    Hey Nightstalker, if you already have Sin and Punishment and you install the injected PilotWings, will it delete the old Sin and Punishment, or will it just appear as two copies of the same game?

    That's too bad. I expect we'll be able to make it a whole other channel soon. It's just a little HTML.

    I thought the only thing in VC dumps other than the rom was some HTML. So changing something like the image and such should be easy. And someone already figured out how to modify a ticket to show it as a different game.

    Perfect Dark needs Memory Expansion Pak to play so I don't think we are any near of playing Perfect Dark.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    The Memory Pak was optional for Perfect Dark ... IIRC

    Isn't it possible that the VC Emulator already has Memory Pack support built in? Or has it been confirmed not to.
