    Is there any way to install Wii U virtual console WADs on a Wii such as Donkey Kong 64? Are the VC titles the same format for both platforms? If not, can they be modified to work on the Wii?

    What I was thinking is... if DK64 could be installed onto the Wii, it may open the possibility to inject other Rareware games into it such as Banjo-Kazooie and we would finally be able to play Rare games on the Wii without resorting to the buggy Wii64/Not64.

    That's a Wii U mode VC? Wii U mode probably doesn't even use WADs and we haven't hacked it to the degree of being able to dump games yet :P

    Yes, DK64 is one of three N64 games currently on the Wii U VC.
