Submitting Wii Virtual Console records

Not sure if this question has been asked already.

Now that Nintendo has phased out the virtual console service on Wii, how can someone submit Wii virtual console records?

There is a game i like to beat the current record and wondering what my options are, as these were digital downloads and not physical copies.

    I think how others have handled that identical scenario is they found and bought a Wii along with the downloaded games still on it.

    So far havent had any luck looking online for Wii with the game on it.

    If the same virtual console game rom was installed on a Wii, would it be acceptable, since it would be running on the same hardware?

    Hi sacrieon, it would not be acceptable, even if you are playing the same game, because you would be using an emulator.

    If you have the knowledge to install an emulator and the ROM you can probably install the correct .wad file an play it from the Wii Virtual Console. Feel free to send me a message if you want to do that and I can help you get the game.

    Obviously, I'm not linking to any nefarious content but the Wii's copyright protection has been "broken" for many years and the necessary files are obtainable and installable on a Wii beginning with the Homebrew channel (not the entire story).
