i own a copy of animal crossing for the gamecube, and the other day i tried to play it in my first model wii. and it came up with the message that the disc could not be read. i have tried several times with no luck. i suspect that it may be because i keep it in a standard cd case, since i got it used, caseless, and in a sleeve. since the game cube discs are so small, i think the inner rim may not be the size of most discs, and it chipped. it looks kind of cloudy and feels rigid in those areas. any ideas?

The inner rim is the same size as a standard disk. If it chipped on the inner part and not the (shiny part) data area, it should still technically be readable. Do other discs work in the console? It could actually be a failing disk drive at fault if so. If there are in fact any chips or cracks in the disc, don't put it into the console anymore, though. It could shatter inside the drive and turn into quite the mess.

All of my Wii games work, but it may just be that my Wii doesn't like GC games, because i cant be sure if it's just this one or all gamecube games,because i only one. i might be getting wind waker soon so i'll find out then. and it's weird because it worked the first time i tested it when i got it, though at the time i did not have a memory card. i got one and ever since, this happens every time. Now that you mention it, i don't think it's a chip or a crack, i actually remember getting it like this, though im not sure, as it was a while ago. I got it from gamestop though, so maybe they're just screwing me over. XD

There's a barcode on the inner rim of the disc. If that's obscured or dirty or it's cracked the game won't boot. The GC and Wii GC mode check the barcode as part of the copy protection.

I've checked and it it not scratched anywhere.

Also ive seen somewhere that homebrew, or in my case, past-homebrew wiis dont like gamecube games. that may be it.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
