Needing help with running rom on Wii U emulator.

Post by DanielT1985 » Mon Sep 03, 2018 10:57 pm

I can't seem to be able to play my exported .nes rom on my Wii U's NES emulator. Any way to make this possible, or is there something in the coding I need to change to make this possible?

The emulator has to be able to run ROMs using Mapper#30, as that's the mapper NESmaker uses.

Chances are the problem is that the emulator doesn't support mapper 30. I'm guessing this is a homebrew emulator? Have you tried the mapper 2 versions of Mystic Searches/Trollburner?

EDIT: From what I'm reading, there's a port of Retroarch for the Wii U available. If you install Retroarch and use the fceumm_libretro core, it should work. In theory.

Thank you. This actually worked!
