Hello. I'm an Italian (so I'm not that good in English, sorry for every possible error) old Mario Kart player, but I never had the possibility to connect my Wii to Wi-Fi, so I just played single-player.
I recently got a Wi-Fi Extender so my segnal can be extended to the room where the Wii is placed (it's distant from the router).
First, I tried to connect my Wii to the Wiimmfi service by doing an hotspot with my 4G (7 days ago). When connected, an error showed up. Searched on Internet and waited 7 days hoping to get verified.
Today the 7 days have been passed. I tried to connect and I got a ban message. I searched online (again) and I came to the conclusion that it was fault of the savegame. I had a savegame of an old friend. So I tried to use another MKWii License (but same savegame, I was afraid that my days count might be reset to 7d, I don't want to wait anymore), it got me to the "Worldwide/Region *number*/Friend Code" screen. So I clicked on Worldwide and got banned without any reason. Tried with another (the third) license and I didn't even got to the "Worldwide/Region *number*/Friend Code" screen (I don't know how to name it lol), another ban. Last error code: 23917 - Access denied (Then I gave up and I decided to write this thread).

So in the last part I panicked and just got things even worse.
It's my Wii banned forever or you can get things work for me and authorize me to play?

The licenses had these names:
- (symbol) zYoshi (symbols)
- another zYoshi license, the same as above
- Vincy (my real name lol)

Thanks in advance if someone replies to this message.

I can't make a lookup without friend code of Wii or game.
Thanks so much for replying!
Here are the FCs: "3612-4357-2409" (with my friend's savegame); "2067-5872-2994" (License created yesterday and registered some minutes ago, the fresh one).

Just a quick update, the new license got me to the character selection screen for the Worldwide server, and then I got banned, I don't know what to do anymore ._.

Another very quick update, the new license gave me two errors:
"81010" on the first time and then "23917".
In the end I gave up, hope to get a reply.

Quick update. Now the new license (yesterday) got me to the "Searching other players..." screen, but unbanned me again.

HEEEELP @Wiimm

7hrs later: Checked again Mario Kart Wii, now I can connect to Region 134 but not to Worldwide... why?

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer

  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
