    Misc Wii Activision Servers Officially Dead (Goldeneye, COD)

    Officially yes, but I checked the discord server mentioned here earlier and they found a way to operate a development server that is still going. You need Gecko codes to get to it (which they have on the discord server downloadable), but other than that, it works the same as the original...

    Hardware Replacing Wii Battery

    I am not exactly sure. As I said I can't find the thread/discussion from several years back. The only thing I can suggest would be trying say Wii Sports. When you a stamp/medal it marks it on the board. I have a few games that did this, Wii spots is the only one I can think of off the top of...

    Hardware Replacing Wii Battery

    I know that the Wii has NAND for most data, but I seemed to recall a discussion with something was stored with the SRAM. Might have been the bulletin board/achievements? Like I said it I can't find the thread now and my memory is a little fuzzy. Some people disagreed, others said these would...

    Hardware Replacing Wii Battery

    If I remember correctly, the Wii takes a CR2032 for the clock. I know it is easy to replace, but does it store any other data I should backup before swapping the battery? I have softmoded it so dumping the data shouldn't be a problem if someone could point me to the best method (if it is even...

    "Ryo and Master" trailer for Shenmue III shown at MAGIC 2019

    It doesn't look boring to me at all. Back in the day I drooled over it, but when the cliffhanger happened, I gave it a pass. Never got the Dreamcast, and for me this was the game I really thought about getting it for. I didn't know they released a HD version last year. If they DO bring out 3...

    "Ryo and Master" trailer for Shenmue III shown at MAGIC 2019

    If this actually comes out, I may play the first two games. I found out the cliff-hanging ending and I put it aside way back. But if they are actually going to finish the story, I will play the games and buy the new ones. It is a good question though, why in the world didn't the...

    Hacking Problem Ea Sports Active More workouts with USBLoaderGX

    Hmm strange. Even more so is it works fine with other loaders. I am definitely using V8 of D2x so it should have set blocking to ON. Nope, I had tried the different NTSC options and I got the extra weird polygons all over the screen when it got to the 3d part (workout). Oh I agree. :D But...

    Hacking Problem Ea Sports Active More workouts with USBLoaderGX

    Ok I GOT Deadspace to work. Come to find out all I had to do was set block IOS reload from AUTO to ON and it was fine. I managed to get EA Sports Active to work fine by ... get this... set it to PAL! It worked fine until you got into the 3d aspect with your character then it got all the weird...

    Hacking Problem Ea Sports Active More workouts with USBLoaderGX

    This is a bit odd to be sure. I am going to try Deadspace again and see if I can get that one going. I did check over the other settings/cheats but didn't see anything. I will double check. And I know I have D2x V8 base56 installed, and like i said it works fine with Config USBloader. If...

    Gaming Nintendo Wii Shop Channel countdown timer

    Oh I know. Eventually it would have failed when they made a change, but they haven't in several years I just to kill it when they COULD have left it going? That is the part that just leaves me shaking my head. As for streaming games, Steam is kind of like that. While they are still...

    Hacking Problem Ea Sports Active More workouts with USBLoaderGX

    We know USBloaderGX doesn't have "automatic cios slot slection". We were discussing if the version of Configurable USBloader I was using had it. It is odd that runs fine, and yet USBLoaderGX does not. As for Wiibackupmanger, yes I know about MD5 being (almost) useless, SHA1 checks out (GREEN)...

    Gaming Nintendo Wii Shop Channel countdown timer

    Yeah having those shut down as well sucks. Especially since they didn't have to. If they had a security situation, sure then they would have to, but there wasn't so why not keep them going for their customers still using it?

    Hacking Problem Ea Sports Active More workouts with USBLoaderGX

    Hi Cyan, I did a post here several days ago but for some reason it looks like it never made it. I did notice that on the compatiblity list, but figured it meant it was easy/worked with all the default settings. So it surprised it me when it didn't work. Until now USBLoaderGX has run...

    Hacking Wii backup Manager for Windows

    I did for a bit but that was a while ago. I was checking over the games since I am moving everything to a better HD and came across this oddity. Everything else checked out, this was the only one that didn't, and like I said passing the MD5 and not the SHA1 really made me scratch my head. But...
