    I'm just genuinely curious. How far has PS1 emulation came since the launch of Wii Homebrew? I was looking into playing some of my own PS1 library again even though I don't own a PS1 a all (which is really ironic :P).

    WiiSX is the best one.

    Thank you for the recommendation. Is there an up-to-date compatibility list anywhere?

    I suggest looking at Wiibrew. They have pretty much every homebrew on their wiki, along with the up-to-date compatability lists. :)

    Thank you! I do really appreciate it. Just curious though, is the emulator still being worked on at all?

    I highly doubt it, since it was made in 2009-10 and the Wii scene is pretty much dead now.

    Well that's sad. Hopefully sometime tries to pick up the project, but I doubt it if the scene is dying. Anyways, thanks again.

    The games wont work... No one ever put controller support so you can just watch the title screen...

    Controller support does work! You need to use a WiiMote or a Classic Controller!

    Well something is wrong on your end, then. Have you configured the controllers?

    Well, if they hadn't put in controller support, then they probably wouldn't have even released it! :P

    WTH am i reading? Of course WiiSX works and has controller support. Also, it IS being worked on, via WiiSXR fork. No release so far, though.

    So... it is still being worked on in a sense. Nice! Do you know where the project page is at?
