    I'm wondering what's the best way to go about getting a GBC rom injected into a Wii VC channel. Is it even possible? Any help is much appreciated!

    That would be difficult... There's no GBC Virtual Console games, so you would need to find some GBC or GBA emulator that would accept running as an installed title and loading your injected rom from it's data directory on NAND... Sounds like a quick way to brick your wii if you aren't a leet console haxor...

    Modifying the source code of VbaGX to auto load a specific rom on your SD card, and then compiling the modified VbaGX source into a dol, before including it in a custom channel and installing it with wad manager may be easier...

    But there is still a high chance of bricking your wii when customizing channels before installing them...

    Edit:
    If VbaGX and the official forwarder channel is good enough, you should go for that... It is WAY safer...

    Xflaks thing, the pc downloader script thing, Modmii, will make forwarders. You can point the forwarder to a specific game, as it loads the emulator, and change the artwork to fit the game. You need to look up how the emulator is expecting the argument, and how to put that argument into modmii.

    Hmm.. Isn't there some sort of injection tool (like GoombaColor) for any of the consoles supported by the Wii VC..?
