Wiimote1.svg Nunchuck alternative.svg Loads files from the Front SD slot


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
