What is this site?

WiiEmulator is a News, Guides, Tutorials and How-to's website keeping you up to date on the latest homebrew developments and strives on Nintendo Wii Emulation.

Nintendo Wii Emulation

The Wii is really just an improved version of the GameCube that consists of an IBM 729MHz CPU, an ATI graphics card clocked at 243 MHz, 88 MB of RAM in total, a DVD drive, wireless 802.11b/g, and 512 MB of flash based memory. Since it is so heavily based on the GameCube it wont be too long until the hardware is emulated. Even now as we speak you can run GameCube Homebrew on the Wii such as SNES or NES Emulators and with modchips already on the market you no longer need an Action replay to run GameCube homebrew.

True Wii Homebrew Around the Corner

Wii Drive Doctor
There is a new product which promises to open up the Nintendo Wii to Homebrew Development. This device called the Drive Doctor, by Datel, will allow you to view and modify memory currently running on your Wii. This capability allows you to run any code you want but unfortunately the Drive Doctor does have a limitation; you need to solder in a few wires. On the other hand having access to runtime memory may lead to some advances towards softmods allowing homebrew without special hardware.


Datel releases Homebrew SDMedia Launcher

True Nintendo Wii homebrew is inching forward day by day and with this latest release from datel you are able to launch GameCube homebrew natively on the Wii. Before we had to enter countless numbers of Action Replay codes to run homebrew using the AR method. But now all you need to do is merely plug the Datel SDmedia launcher device in. This means that you now have much faster access to any homebrew applications such as Emulators. Sadly the device does not yet support Wii homebrew just yet but it is most defiantly a step in the right direction.
