Simply decompress the .zip file and copy the 'Menu Loader' folder to the folder 'apps' on the root of your SD card.

Twilight Hack

Place the file boot.dol from the folder 'Menu Loader' on the root of your SD card. Load up the Twilight Hack.


Simply load the .dol file using one of the above methods. Select your options using the D-pad on the Wii remote and then select "Launch" to boot with your chosen settings. Note that an imported GameCube game can only save to a memory card that is either empty or only has saves from its own region.
