You will need the Homebrew Channel

  1. Download from http://code.google.com/p/pcsxgc/downloads/list
  2. Create a folder in the root of your SD card called "wiiSX". Place all of your .bin/.cue game images into the folder "isos" and SCPH1001.BIN(BIOS) into the folder "bios". Create another folder called "saves".
    • .bin/.cue/.img/.ccd images are supported.
  3. Create a folder under apps (eg /apps/wiiSX) and place the unpacked boot.dol, icon.png and meta.xml files in that folder.
  4. The memory card files are MCD001.mcr and MCD002.mcr, located at /wiisx/saves . Please note that if these files are not present, the emulator will automatically generate them for you.
