 What's new [20080331]Askot-
 - Fixed/changed SDCARD slot selection for searching roms, at 
 start you will be prompted for this option.
 - Code cleanup.
 - Added Wii mode support.
 - Give a "Bad cartridge" error instead of locking up.
 - Joystick fixes due to libogc r14's changed stick values
 - Rearranged menu to make more sense, and consistent with Snes9x

 What's new? Askot - 20080326
 - Added saving state in SD Card (State files will be saved in root of SDCARD).
   *Note: I can't make it work to save in root:\fceu\saves, so help needed.
 - Added SDCARD slot selection for searching roms, meaning, you can search roms 
   from SDCARD SLOT A & SLOT B (Beta, meaning, buggy, but works).
 - For standardization, you must create folders root:\fceu\roms to read NES 
   roms files from SDCARD.
 - Added C-Left to call Menu.
 - Reading files from SD Card it's faster, now they're called from cache
   after first reading.
 - Menu in saving STATE file changed to choose SLOT, DEVICE, Save STATE, 
   Load STATE, Return to previous. 
 - Added option PSO/SD Reload to menu, still works (START+B+X)
 - Modified controls when going into the rom selection menu (DVD or 
   + Use B to quit selection list.
   + Use L/R triggers or Pad Left/Right to go down/up one full page.
 - Some menu rearrangement and a little of source code cleanup: 
   + Every time you pressed B button on any option, play game started, not anymore
    until you select Play Game option.
