    No wonder it looks worse running said emulator on the Wii. I'll stick with the real Wii thank you, at least until someone can port an emulator for the Wii U, but who knows how the actual hack stands.

    @the_randomizer: Dude, just run your Wii-U in 480p, it will look exactly the same as on the Wii. Your assertion that the Wii is somehow graphically superior is flawed.

    No, then games like Assassin's Creed 3 will look like utter garbage, I'll just delete the homebrew channel and play it on the older Wii instead. What I meant to say it looks cleaner on the Wii and not blurry (not higher res, just cleaner), neither does it have the weird interlacing issue with certain games when they use the strobe effect. Snes games were in 240p, and they looked fine in 480p, but when the vWii upscales them, that's when they get visual anomalies, so I'll delete from the Wii U. I'd hate to think what transferred VC games look like.

    So you'd rather switch console everytime you want to play an emulator/Assasins Creed 3, than change display output mode on Wii-u between 480p/1080p everytime you want to play an emulator/Assassins Creed 3?

    I get why you're spamming your complaint, you want the hacker-emulator-developers out there to fix the way emulators look in 1080p on the vWii. Well guess what?... they'll update their emulators when they damn well please and your negativity won't speed up the process.

    Ever played a VC Snes game on anything above 480p? Those games (at least Snes, NES, Genesis, etc) were encoded at their native 240p resolution, most HDTVs don't support that (but some do) and when they're beyond 240p, they lose their natural filtering, so therefore, they look like crap. Only emulators can provide filtering to those who don't have a CRT or LCD with 240p. Anyone will tell you that VC games look like crap when played at anything but their native resolution.

    Yeah I have both a CRT and LED up to 1080p, must just be something I'm not noticing.

    Who knows if updating is wise, but on the other side, there is an exploit i heard, it's just not public, and as long as it isn't public, it is probably safe to update the WiiU, most updates now are bugfixes and extra's anyways.

    For a list of working known exploits for wii mode look here -->> http://wiiubrew.org/wiki/WiiMode

    I'm guessing there's no method to playing gamecube backups, right?

    Until Devolution comes out with vWii compatibility(which may be never as there is no accurate way to do the AntiPiracy check if the drive cannot read originals) , No.

    I'm confused here. I know that the vWii is hacked, but the fail0verflow picture shows the GamePad... Has the Wii U mode also been hacked?
