    Default Super Mario All-Stars for Wii, in a *.WAD file... Is it possible?

    The title mostly says, and before you start posting "A Wii game can hold 4.5GB and the Wii memory can hold 512MB", let's take a look!

    If you unpack Super Mario All-Stars' contents from the Wii Disc, you will see how much space it holds:

    Size: 9,67 MB (10.141.341 bytes)
    Size on drive: 9,71 MB (10.182.656 bytes)

    It's even weirder when you look in the folder!

    Proof that it is the 000000X.app file in a folder, I unpacked an *.app file from a different Virtual Console *.wad, with ShowMiiWads, and the files are mostly the same.

    Then I went working, but I struggled.
    Injectuwad didn't inject a Super Mario All-Stars romfile correctly, causing the Wii to show a black screen,
    CustomizeMii showed the wrong colors and layers in Icons & Banners
    and I overall didn't got it to work.
    However, as proof it CAN work, here is a video with the color dismissmatch. (Dumped with CrapV3.3b)

    So, is it possible we can get this to work so we don't have to use a disc anymore?
    (yes, we can use an usb loader but I don't give a crap about those because I never got them to work, and yes, someone patched SMAS + SMW correctly, but it's the overall visuals that I like to see here)

    Ok, cool, thanks!

    You don't fully understand.
    A *.wad file needs to be under about 200mb. A *.wad file above 512mb is impossible.
    I think you're confused with the term *.iso or *.wbfs
