It was one of the only shooters of any nature I could find. And like I said, its still in beta.


I'm sure it wouldn't be all that difficult to port the original Doom or Wolfenstein3D over to Wii. Both use WADs if I'm not mistaken.

is it updated in the first post?
i noticed how it said you can play music while in the game, what file types work? is Twilight Princess the only game that is compatible? and it didnt go into much detail HOW to get music to work.
i tried saving Windows Media Player to my SD card but it started to import all the songs (5000 +)
is there any wii specific Music player to be used on Twilight Hack?

Save the Player to the desktop.

Extract it to your apps folder.

Okay, lets say this.

When you open your SD card on the computer, it should show the boot.elf, if your using the homebrew. Then the wii folder going to the private title then the twilight hack file. Well, where the wii folder is, there should be another folder called apps, where you keep your applications. Extract the dragon media player into the apps folder.

oh, i'm supposed to have a Wii save on the SD card? i thought you were just supposed to format to FAT32 and put the homebrew info.what am i supposed to copy from the wii to the SD card?
and for the twilighthack name, it said that Backslashes are invalid keys for folder/file names.
and every time i try to extract or unzip the folder, it says "invalid source, windows cannot locate file"
but i should save it to my desktop, and then try to unzip into the folder.
and how does the music player work? can i listen to my MP3s while playing LoZ?

i love ya man, thanks. this Homebrew channel is freaking amazing.

Does anyone know how to get homebrew games to work? i downloaded Wii-asteroids (no game-download link)
and i downloaded a 3-D shooter (quake i think)
i put them under "apps" and it didnt work.
also, how can i make the SNES emulator work, i extracted the files to the "apps folder"
for SNES emulated games, i heard that you can only use the Wii-remote, can you use the classic controller instead? i have the game i want to play on my wii, sitting in my SNES.
