FCE Ultra GX is a modified port of the FCE Ultra 0.98.12 Nintendo Entertainment system for x86 (Windows/Linux) PC's. With it you can play NES games on your Wii/GameCube. Version 2 is a complete rewrite based on code from the SNES9x GX and Genesis Plus GX projects.


  • If you are using the Homebrew Channel just copy the apps directory from the archive to the root of your SD card. If you are using another loader use the executables/fceugx_wii.dol.
  • ROMs & saves files should be stored in fceugx/roms and fceugx/saves on the root of you SD card, USB flash drive, or SMB share. You can copy the fceugx directory from the archive to your support drive.
  • Launch the emulator using your Loader.

Loading From DVD or Windows Network Share (SMB)

  • ROMs can be burned to a DVD-/+R (4.7GB max size & ISO 9660 file format) but you need to install the DVDx on your Wii. More infos on HackMii.
  • To load roms from a Windows network share (SMB) you will have to edit FCEUGX.xml on your SD card with your network settings, or edit fceuconfig.cpp from the source code and compile.

What's new [20080331]


  • 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
  • Add "Reboot" menu option
  • Removed "." directory from SD card listing, it's pointless
  • Expand DVD reading to DVD9 size (once DVDs are working again)
  • Added option to go back a menu by pressing B.

What's new? [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 SDCARD):
    • 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.

Other versions



Took Vicious1988's version, gutted the menu, and tweaked all around. Now load from any directory on SD file. SRAM saves are automatic. Take screenshots to PNG format. Works with GameCube pads and Wiimotes. Long file names for ROMs are not supported natively.


New version with nicer menu, classic controller + nunchuk, use IR as zapper, new scaler (but not as nice as GX...), sort of half-way complete:

Mike Tyson's Jungle Beat

Template:Infobox homebrewapp

Mike Tyson's Jungle Beat is a NES-emulator that enables you to play Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! using the the Gamecube DK Bongos.


Each bongo has a top and a bottom button. These naturally correspond to high and low punch. To dodge, clap. To use your star punch (or to "Press Start"), hit both top buttons. To block, hold the start button on the bongos.


Download mtjb.zip to get started! mtjb.diff is the patch from the SVN trunk as of today (June 27, 2008). The hack is pretty straightforward, so it's not very large. InjectorSrc.zip is the source code for the injector program, in case someone wanted to compile a Mac version or something.
