To play GameCube games on a Wii Wireless console, you need a GameCube controller, which the Wii remote does not support. A WaveBird or GameCube controller that plugs into the Wii’s GameCube controller socket is needed for GameCube to work with a Wii.
The Wii system RVL-001, which was made in 2006, can play GameCube games. But systems made after 2011, like the RVL-201, don’t have ports for the GameCube and can’t play GameCube discs. Now, we’ll tell you what you need to do to play GameCube games on your Wii.
Can I use a Wii to play GameCube games?
Take, for example, the RVL-001. The following pieces of hardware are required to play GameCube games:
- A control stick for the GameCube.
- A GameCube disc.
- A GameCube memory card (optional)
To use a GameCube controller with your Wii, you must first remove your Wii controller and plug it into a port that supports it.
The RVL-001 can be used with up to four different controllers.
Now that you’ve put in a memory card, the game will save your progress on it. Your Wii remote has two places where you can put memory cards.
For this to be done in steps –
- Connect the controller to start the game.
- Put the memory card in.
- Insert the disc into the GameCube.
- From the Home menu on your Wii remote, choose GameCube > Start.
Once you put the memory card in, you can use GameCube controllers to play games made for the GameCube system and save your progress.
Remember that you can’t use an SD card in a GameCube. If you want to play on a GameCube, you’ll need a special card.
Without a memory card, you can play games on a Wii, but if you take out the disc, you’ll lose your progress and have to start over.
How do I use a GameCube SD card to play games on my Wii?
You can play GameCube games on a Wii by using an SD card.
Here’s how to play GameCube games that are stored on an SD card instead of on a disc.
Get GCM Utility to start making your games smaller. By zipping the games, you can make it more likely that you will win. However, it’s not required.
Start DM Toolbox to put the games on the memory card. This programme takes out extra information from GameCube photos, which makes them a lot smaller.
Once you’ve saved all your games to SD, use the Wii Multi-mod manager to set up Dios Mios Lite. When the installation is done, close the MMM app.
Any GameCube loader can now be used to load the game on the SD card (we recommend DML Booster).
If you want to play GameCube games, you can only do so on a Wii made before 2011. A used RVL-001 can be bought from Amazon for about $100. You only need two GameCube controllers that work with the Wii at this point.
