    Yup! Can confirm, it works! I put the emulator and 643 roms on a DVD and using the GC Boot Disc GUI and it works. I played about 30 games off of the DVD no problems (even the famous Zero Wing)..

    Very nice.. This is exactly what I hope for with NES, SNES, N64, and GBA emulators: pop in a DVD and have the emulator boot and go right into being able to load roms from the DVD itself.

    Awesome, thanks for that heads up!

    Where do the roms save, on GC memory card? Will try it when I get my Wiikey on Monday.

    I can't confirm this yet, but there is only save state support, and each state takes 19 gc memory blocks. Most Genesis games didn't require saving anyway so it's cool with me [​IMG]

    Interesting... but no offense... Genesis was a pretty alright system and had some decent games, I'm looking more towards wanting SNES since it had a MUCH LARGER selection of great games. [​IMG]

    Does this support 4.7gig size disks or can you only fill up 1.5gigs?

    It guess it supports up to 4.7G, but: the boot disc creater will only make a 1.5G ISO.. Even so, ALL of the Genesis games (about 650 of them) are only 764 megs.. So you'll be padding the rest of the disc for the ISO..

    I suppose it's too hard to read the original post.

    I burned a test disc with a cuppy games and it works with Wiinja V2. Direct Boot. It runs perfectly, I just wish I had a GC pad with a bigger D pad.

    Im wondering if the flashing black bar on my screen is because its a pal console as the Americans are reporting it working fine....

    Anyone tested it on a pal console too yet?
