    i bypassed the update from AC:CC so i am currently on 3.3Uv1. i was thinking about picking up the microphone for WiiSpeak but i don't even know if it will work without me updating to 3.4U first. does anybody here have WiiSpeak working without the update?

    Animal Crossing City Folk and Wiispeak came out before the 3.4 update, but after the 3.3v2 update. As far as I know it should work regardless of what update, the game update though might be an IOS that is needed to have it work just not the 3.4 update.

    I think you can find the IOS Wiispeak uses via google

    Wiispeak does not need the new 3.4 update since the device came out before Nintendo released their newest update. They would not release a peripheral before they patch to use it that would make so many people angry. It has an IOS on the disc to give support for it but it may update you to 3.3v2 so nothing lost homebrew wise.

    i thought there was i significant issue that made 3.3v1 way safer for homebrew than 3.3v2. i can't remember the specific issue but i think there is one. do you think WiiSpeak will at least need firmware 3.3v2 to work properly?

    Edit: i just looked up what the 3.3v2 update does. i definitely don't want to update to that.

    i hope WiiSpeak works with 3.3v1. anyone confirm this yet?

    Possibly, and 3.3v2 has a work around for it so you will be fine, I'm currently on it, but don't do online update or your stuck in 3.4, I have no idea what update Animal Crossing has cause it might be too soon for the 3.3v2 version to be included on the disc since it came out a few weeks after the october 23rd update.


    Edit: The update on Animal Crossing is to install an IOS to make the game run properly.

    well i have to run AC:CC through GeckoOS in order to avoid the black screen issue. i hope that is the only thing that is wrong with the game if i don't install the IOS that comes with it. i wonder if running the game through GeckoOS will affect WiiSpeak.

    i guess i will just fork over the $30 and if it doesn't end up working i will just return it.

    I got Animal Crossing Bundle for 29.99...Yea 30dollars but umm i can confirm that it works without updating and works in geckoos without updating actual game so i guess the same for backup.

    i don't think the actual channel will be a problem. that will be packed into a wad file but i was asking if a normal usb pc mic would work on the wii... they are not that expansive as the wii speak mic...

    i have 3.2u with the 3.3v1, i bought the wiispeak mic. havent tested it yet
    but if an update is required, i would assume the 3.3v2 is whats needed, isnt there a workaround for that?

    Nowhere
    If you bought wiispeak, test it with a regular usb microphone like from rock band or guitar hero and see if it works with them as well.

    i don't know what you mean when you say you have 3.2U and 3.3Uv1. doesn't the newest firmware overwrite the older ones?
    also, can you just go into the game and talk to yourself just to see if you can hear your own voice on the TV? i am not sure if the game works like that but if you want to see if the mic works then it is worth a shot.

    the update from 3.3v1 to 3.3v2 disables the installation of new WAD files. i am not sure if there is a workaround for this yet so i definitely will not be updating to 3.3v2.
