    hello team. i am still a novice in this world. i am trying to play gamecube games on my wii. i've already installed the homebrew channel but am having a difficult tyme extracting the gamecube .rar files.
    ev'rything else i've worked with on this site haes been no problem.
    what am i doing wrong and/or is there a separate program i need to complete the process?
    thanks

    okay. make sure you have the latest rar, or 7zip. (7z handles rar expansion)
    have all the downloaded rar archive parts in the same directory.
    then highlight the first most part of that split rar archive, usually with a '.000, .001, or .rar' suffix, and using gui of 7z/rar, select 'extract here' or define custom target directory.
    all the best, and welcome to the first post of your life here.

    What file or files do you have for the game, including there extensions?
    What homebrew do you have to run GameCube games?
    What Media are you running from? DVD? HDD? Flash Drive? ect... and what format is the device (applies to Flash Drives and HDD)

    HDD is the best option to use.

    The Homebrew Channel is not enough to run GameCube or Wii games, it mostly just gives access to other homebrew

    ModMii would of given you almost everything you needed, but even then you will want to update a couple of things after and grab GameCube running homebrew
