    Im not tech savvy, so i dont know but i bounced this idea here before and someone said they would do it... and that was a while ago.
    Do you guys think this is possible? something where you would put your wiiware titles on a dvd and launch the launcher which would read it like a multigame dvd such as gamecube launcher did.

    what do you guys think?

    From what i know i could be very wrong..wii ware titles. and like zip files, when using wad manager it dumps it into a nice package thats playable
    So in a nut shell .zip files can not be played:/ unless you "dump" the games then put them on a cd...might be possible
    And again i might be very very wrong.However this topic has been discussed before on here try looking for it.

    it is possible but so time consuming it would not be worth while

    but putting it on a dvd, possibly several on one dvd would be great!
    you wouldnt need to install and delete and reinstall the wads all the time due to wii's small internal space.
    if you can make a multipartitioned dvd and have a launcher then you would never need to install wads!

    Im just hoping [​IMG]

    Waninkoko recently modified a disc based game to launch like a WiiWare title from the Wii Menu. If he investigates further, he might find a way to do it the other way round.

    These posts are getting tiring. "Do you guys think this is possible?"
    No, you didn't think of anything original. Whatever you thought of has already been thought up by other noobs and posted in other threads. No, your post won't convince people to make whatever you want. And no, arguing that it is possible because "but... those other things were said to be impossible too!" won't help your case.

    Please stop it. You didn't suddenly stumble upon an ingenious and novel idea. Don't make a thread about it, because no one really cares that you're 'not tech savvy' but have a great idea for someone else to waste their time making.
