The virtual console '''Virtual Console''' (abbreviated '''VC''') is a platform to play retro games on your Nintendo Wii. For more information about the VC visit the VC page of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Console_(Wii) Wikipedia].
==Internal game names==
The folders in which the Virtual Console files (content.bin) are saved have systematic, four-character names. The first character tells us what system the ROM belongs to.
<!--A : Early DS cards, early GBA carts and GBC carts-->
<!--B : Late GBA carts-->
C : Commodore 64<br />
E : Neo-Geo<br />
F : NES<br /> <!--also used for the GBA NES CLASSICS-->
Q : TurboGrafx-CD<br />
R : Wii DVD (Only for savegames, not VC)<br />
W : [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiiware WiiWare]
<!--Y : Newer DS cards-->
The second and third char is the game identifier. For non-Wii games, it is incremented from AA to AZ, then A0 to A9, BA to BZ and so on; for Wii games, it is often an abbreviation of the game name (e.g. "SP" for Wii Sports, "ZD" for Zelda).
The last character is the regioncoderegion code.
E : USA<br />
J : Japan<br />
P : Europe (and other PAL regionssuch as Australia)<br />
D : Germany (only if separate version)<br />
F : France (only if separate version)<br />
I : Italian (only if separate version)<br />
S : Spanish (only if separate version)<br />
A : All (?, only seen on channels) <br />
L : Limited (region free games)<br />
M: Import games (confirmed for Japaness imports in Europe)<br />
N: Import games (confirmed in Japeness imports in US)<br />
Let's take F-Zero as an example. The folder for F-Zero (USA) is named JACE. The 'J' tells us it's a SNES game, followed by 'AC' which tells us this is probably the third game released for the SNES and the 'E' tells us it's a USA release.
==The content.bin file==
When saved to a SD card, the VC game is saved in a file named "private/wii/title/XXXX/content.bin", where XXXX is the four-character name of the game, as described above.
See the [[content.bin_file_structurebin file structure|content.bin file format]] page for details of this format, which is shared with Wii channels.
==Virtual Console Game ID List==The fourth letter not listed. As you can read above, the regioncode character use to be E=USA J=Japan P=Europe, however some games use a more specific character. D=Germany F=France A=All (?, only seen on channels) L=Limited (region free games) N=Import (confirmed for US Imports)
