    So now that there is a CD-I emulator for MESS, and Toad Kings MAME port is running pretty good. I was wondering if there was anyone out there thinking about mashing up the MAME port and the MESS CD-I driver. If it was a specialized to only run the CD-I driver it would be an actual CD-i emulator on the Wii. Think about it! all those licenced Nintendo games finally being run on a Nintendo console. I might just be dreaming but it sure sounds possible in my head.

    What past consoles (besides the PSP, PS2, Xbox) haven't got a emulator for Wii? Handheld/console?

    Sega handheld(s), Turbo Grafix portable (forget the name)

    I think it's fine the SMS emulator runs GameGear, there's no problem there. No need to isolate the GameGear in it's own emu. Just more, seperate programs to worry about.

    Console emulators I would like to see most would be CD-i, Virtual Boy, Sega CD & 32X, 3DO, and Jaguar.
    I would also like to see some kind of Triforce Emulation. But the CD-I is the one I would like to see most.

    Forget the CD-i what a POS that was, 3DO now that's a system that would be interesting but PLEASE any author of an emu DROP THE CD-i let it rot!

    I think it would be better if someone came around and improved mame. There are many cps2 games that can work on the wii but don't.

    The original version of mame runnning on linux could actually play dungeons and dragons, megaman power battle and other cps2 games at pretty decent speeds despite unoptimized on wii linux.

    Still I wish someone could just port the CD-I driver to Toad Kings MAME. I would do it myself but I know little to nothing about programming.

    I would love to play Super Street Fighter Turbo on the 3DO again...it was a near perfect port! Who's knows maybe that is the Wii64 Teams next emulator! Anyone have any idea what it will be?

    The portable Turbo Grafix was called the Turbo Express, and used the actual console games, so there is no difference. Unless you want a digitized picture of the Turbo Express to be displayed on the screen, with the Turbo Grafix games running in a smaller window, there will never be an emulator for the handheld.

    As for CDI games, I'd like to laugh my way through the Zelda games, since I never had a chance to play them, but that's about all.

    Is there anyone out there who can tell me if this is even possible. What tools/utilities I would need to get started on this myself?

    I would enjoy to play Hotel Mario or Wand of Gamelon on the Wii. Would beat trying to rip the graphics from the CD-i and trying to make a PC port or a CD-i emulator for PC.

    Come on, full USB support (flash drive AND keyboard) and a quick release date would make a lot of gaming nerds happy. (I'm a gamer, a nerd, a perfectionist, but not a loser)
