I have WiiPSX and I want to try playing some PSX games. Problem is... they are almost 500MB each. I don't want to fill up my 1GB SD. I have a Cruzer 4GB USB which is completely formatted... Nothing on it.

I tried to put some N64 games on it but Wii64 says No USB found.

Will my normal USB flash drive work with the Wii, or does it have to be one of those HDDs?

I have not had any luck either with usb on WiiSX/WII64. If you want to know if your stick is compatible with wii, put an app on your stick and see if homebrew channel detects it. If not youre skrewed. if it does ; good luck.

I had the same problem with wii64. it just won't detect it.
I expect it to work with WiiSX(haven't tried yet though) cuz it also works on any other emulators on my wii.

if using usb make sure the device is formatted to fat 16 or 32, that the partition is the first partion on the device and that it is listed as active.

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Sold! I'll pack her bags in the morn
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I want the dog also
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Deals off then, dog stays with me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download

    K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2: Awesome deal pissed I spent 80 on this last year...
