.Optimized read input routine (reading “WPAD_ButtonsHeld(0)” only once) and compiled the source with -O3, instead with the default -O2.
.Support for third party classic controller
.Support for USB 2.0 (IOS202 needed)


Installation :
copy boot.dol in your SD:/apps/WiiSX/ or USB:/apps/WiiSX/ folder

Create a PSXISOS folder at the root of SD or USB. Copy your Playstation bios file (SCPH1001.bin) and your game's image here.

Note : Do not use mixed devices. Booting from SD can't list games on USB.

Image format :
Your game image must be in raw 2352 format (.bin or .img).

If you have .iso, .nrg, .mds or any other image format, you must convert them to binary image first. You can use virtual CD mounter to make new image of the CD content, or use tools like Isobuster.

If your file is .bin.ecm, your image is compressed with ecm (Error Code Modeler), where the error codes are removed from the file. You need to uncompressed the file using Neill Corlett's unecm to recreate the complete binary image.

For more help using WiiSX or editing this page, please go to WiiSX GBAtemp Thread.

Game compatibility


- Games region affects the compatibility. When adding a game, please specify the region and gameID

Game's region and ID can be checked on (currently in maintenance, use this one if needed

- There are 2 emulation modes : Dynamic recompiler (Dynarec) and Interpreter.

Always try the other mode if it's not working with the current one.

On the same way, if you are using Analog control, try using Standard control before reporting your test.

- If a game doesn't work, explain where and what is the error (Code dump, freeze but soft reset working (back to HBC), freeze + soft reset not working (Wii power off needed), graphic glitches, etc.)

If possible, link to a code dump screenshot, they are helpful to know where the code is hanging and what need to be corrected (although it might be better to post them directly to WiiSX Wiibrew forum, where the developers are active).
