Introduction

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

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=41847

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<

Installation

- 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

Instructions

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)
