Description

Dolphin currently lists Virtual Console games and Wii Channels as WiiWare titles. I would like for these games be sorted into their own section, separate from WiiWare games.

Both the Dolphin Wiki and the compatibility list on the website already have them sorted separately, complete with different icons.

This is a perfectly sane idea.

#2 Updated by JMC4789 over 6 years ago

I prefer insane ideas.

There's no way to automatically determine this in a way that won't have errors. Not sure if we want to include a database of VC games just for this...

#4 Updated by Stevoisiak over 6 years ago

Can't system codes be used to identify Virtual Console games and System Channels?

#5 Updated by rachelbryk over 6 years ago

Mostly, but there are some special snowflakes that ignored that.

#6 Updated by JMC4789 over 6 years ago

Is there are, then this feature would be pointless.

#7 Updated by Stevoisiak over 6 years ago

Aside from a few homebrew titles, I can't seem to find any .WAD files that deviate from the system code standard. Does anyone have an example of one that ignores the system code standards?

#8 Updated by JMC4789 over 6 years ago

All the MSX VC games have the same gameID for me.

#9 Updated by ZephyrSurfer over 6 years ago

Even if the MSX titles have the same GameID they'd still be listed as VC with this proposed idea, right?

So is there any example of where this would go wrong?

#10 Updated by JMC4789 over 6 years ago

No, I misread their IDs. They have unique IDs, I'm just dumb.
