NOTE: If you want to make a Multigame ISO, you can learn how to do so here so that you do not waste disc space
In the words of Forrest Gump “Shit happens”. No matter how hard you try, something is always gonna happen to you Gamecube discs. The good news is that now their is a way to play backups of your discs so you don’t have to worry about that anymore.
First of all, as with all Wii homebres you will need to install the Wii Homebrew Channel. You can learn how to do that here. You also need to have cIOS 249 installed (its a component of the Wii Backup Launcher, if you need to learn how to you can go here.) Now that thats over with on to the actual instructions.
Step One: Download this file, it has everything you need. Extract the. tgz file out and copy the MIOS patcher and rungcbackup directories into the apps directory in your SD card.
Step Two: Now Put the SD card into your wii and run the miospatcher. When prompted select the options that you want. I suggest that you also select that you want it to be compatible with the Wii backup launcher.
Step Three: After the cMIOS is installed you can go to the Homebrew Channel and either run the Wii Backup Launcher app (if you installed support for it) or the GCBackup Launcher app. Then simply choose the command you want or press “A” on the Gamecube controller to launch the game.
