To install and set up Genesis Plus GX to play Sega games on your Wii for free, follow these steps:

Hey that was a good video but your next video should be how to unformat from the Wii U style of USBS to the original style without deleting any data if that's too hard just do how to add Homebrew apps to the Wii U menu

Nice vid thanks. I am a bit confused though as to how many USB sticks I am going to need lol. Sorry I'm new to this. I am planning on having a USB stick for GameCube and Wii roms that I can launch in the virtual Wii, and I'll need another for Wii U ROMs and all my Gameboy, SNES Sega ect ROMs to boot on the Wii U UI?
