Template:Infobox homebrewapp


This project is based on the atari 2600 opensource emulator called stella. You can find the original sources on its sourceforge page:


This version uses the same sources than the original. It uses wii-linux to run on a wii, cwiid for wiimote interface, and the SDL libraries for this system.

What you need

  • A console ready to run homebrew
  • Wiimote
  • SDCard


  • Copy the "app" and "stella" directories (and its contents) to the root of yout SDCard.
  • Put your roms inside the "stella" directory, in the root of your sdcard
  • Put the SDCard on the front slot sdcard adapter of your wii
  • Launch the Homebrew channel, and load the Stella´s .dol file


When the program starts, it tells you to press the "1" and "2" buttons of your wiimote. Wait until the emulator starts, an then press 1 and 2 at the same time, until the wiimote's leds starts to blink (you can press them at any moment). Here is the button relation between the wiimote and the keyboard:

  • [A]: Enter (select an option or the rom)
  • [Home]: Escape (to return to "roms select" menu)
  • [b]: Tabulator (to navigate through the menu buttons)
  • [-]: F1 (Reset) (in a game)
  • [+]: F2 (Select) (in a game)

First player: Wiimote

  • [1]: Pad button
  • [Digital pad]: Arrows

Second player: Nunchuck

  • [C]: Pad button
  • [Analog pad]: Arrows

Thanks to

  • The gc-linux team for their effort in porting linux to the wii console
  • The stella team, for their great emulator
  • The CWiid develeoppers, for their great applications to interface the wiimote
