    you have to put boot .cue and .bin with the same name in the isos folder

    what message did you get?

    only needed the .cue ?
    Do you really thing your game is few Kb ? not 650MB?

    The game is the ".bin" file, not the other one.

    The .Cue file is a dump/burn data file, it can be used if the iso has multiple tracks (like tombraider dumped track by track with data+cda instead of Disc at once iso).
    I don't remember if Wiisx use it to load multitrack bin files, but just keep them in the same folder, it won't harm to have more files.

    But...but...he has a GOOD .cue file. Surely that means the game will play. The other part is just of that "data" stuff, right?


    *goes and tries to play a movie by making VLC read the subtitle file*


    Ahem...in all seriousness. Assuming the OP meant the bin file (or "the large part"), there are still other things to consider.

    First of all: not all games work. Check this list for your game.

    Second: recheck the settings (or the remarks by the game in the above wiki). Some only work on dynarek, others only on interpreter. There is no "one setting plays all" setting, so try some settings. I could point you to matguitar or wiisixtyfour's modifications, but to my knowledge, those only increase speed a bit...it won't make things load that otherwise wouldn't load.

    Hey hey, just some good natured hazing, most everyone when they start emulation is at a loss to what the frell is going on with file types, just be glad you found a bin/cue and not a mdf/mds, or nrg/???, ccd/sub/img in which case, converting might be in order.

    wbfs through me for a loop until I figured out it's just compressing and removing sectors.

    In case you do run in to other image file types, the actual image is the largest one (most of the time), and whatever extras are normally tracks, or which order to read/write them.

    Also: Anyone remember trying to get SegaCD images to work? Talk about hit or miss, ISO/MP3 is what I see in my nightmares.
