Farewell to the Wii Shop but you were somewhat useless to begin with why? because the Wii only has 512mb of storage space on the Nand meaning you can’t download much from the Wii Shop which has around 16gb worth of games. The best way is to download WADs (Virtual Console, Wii Ware games, Channels) these can be downloaded online and then install them onto an emulated Nand and have that extra storage space for your saves. An Emulated Nand can be your USB drive, SD Card, HDD. 32gb should be more than enough for an emulated Nand to download every Wii Ware/Virtual Console game as well as the Wii Menu being able to recognize it any higher then 32gb and the Wii menu will not recognize it but it still can be used in the homebrew channel, emulators, USB Loader GX etc. Just cannot be used for photos, extra channels on the main menu, mainly official stuff.

Free the Wads for PC. Download: https://gbatemp.net/download/free-the-wads.2206/ or Google Free the Wads. The program can be used to mod and patch your Wads, for example, You want to make your Wads region free or run in a certain region this program is for you.

First, install Homebrew Channel https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-install-the-wii-homebrew-channel-2498513 or Google Wii Homebrew Channel you will need this to run homebrew

Then download and put dx2 to CIOs which is an application for patching your firmware. Put this app it into the SD Card apps folder and the root. Make sure SD Card is formatted as Fat32.
Download or Google DX2 to CIOS Download: https://storage.googleapis.com/google-code-archive-downloads/v2/code.google.com/d2x-cios-installer/d2x cIOS Installer v3.1.zip

Follow this tutorial https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers/installation or Google CIOS Installation. Download NUS Downloader for your PC and install the custom firmware to run games on the emulated Nand.

"1. Startup NUS Downloader. If you don't have it, you can grab it on its page (or direct download link)

2. Make sure that "Pack WAD" is enabled.

3. Using the database, navigate to the following files and press start NUS Download for each one:

* IOS -> IOS56 -> v5661
* IOS -> IOS57 -> v5918
4. Open the NUS Downloader directory (the folder where you placed NUS Downloader, you can use extras -> open NUSD directory to open it easily).
You will see a folder named titles. You will find two new folders in this directory:
* 0000000100000038
* 0000000100000039
* In each folder, there is another folder for the version you just downloaded. Open this version folder and find a WAD file:
* 0000000100000038 -> 5661 -> IOS56-64-v5661.wad
* 0000000100000039 -> 5918 -> IOS57-64-v5918.wad
Copy both WAD files to the root of the SD card (or your USB device if you don't have an SD card)."

Once you have done that download and install USB Loader GX and go to settings, features, also create a Nand folder there should be an option somewhere to create a directory and Dump your Nand there then go to install wads option and download the games you want. Go back to the USB Loader GX menu and now you can play them.

As for getting the best picture from your Wii, there is the GCVideo HDMI mod, GC Dual HDMI Mod or the OSSC with high-quality component cables all those will do a great job at upscaling your games. Though Virtual Console games won’t look any better if someone knows how to make VC games look better on the Wii let me know. Also if you want to filter out the duplicates that are showing up in USB Loader GX. That is your original Nand go to the SD Card icon near the stars and deselect Nand so that it only shows your EmuNand stuff. Now enjoy your games i recommend Contra Rebirth, Sonic 4, NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, Megaman 9 and 10, Excitebike: World Rally, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, Adventure Island: The Beginning, Cave Story, Bit Trip.
