    I have a few games that i broke. So i use them through USB loader. And i really want to play online. So if i play a game like SSBB or any other WIFI game could i be banned from online usage? (i use netflix on it so i can't be banned or else my life is over)

    Generally, unless you're cheating, Nintendo won't ban you from Wi-Fi for any reason. They're pretty lax, unlike Xbox Live.

    Of course you can't, it ruins the others' online experience. That's a good reason for a ban.

    It's addressed in the 7th bullet point.

    I have no idea how hard they enforce their 'no-cheat' rule, but it does exist.

    The lack of bans on modded wiis is why I play wii the most, but I highly doubt they vigorously enforce the no cheat rule, unless you are so obvious with your cheats. I don't think they even try to enforce this rule on non-nintendo franchises like cod cuz I've seen host hacks on cod games and those people don't get banned. Don't worry, the worse thing you can do is hit the update button on the wii menu XD

    Consideirng how long the Wii has been out the lack of any banning indicates to me

    1) They are incapable of detecting this
    2) They are incapable of implementing bans

    If you really think about it the entire online strategy for Nintendo in the Wii/DS world is basically non-existent. They 'might' get more serious with the 3DS since they seem to be better at actually detecting the flashcart and logging it.

    I ply online regularly with games backed up to my hardrive! I have never got banned but as for cheating and hacking, Nintendo and some 3RD party companies have taken steps to stop online cheating AS THEY SHOULD!

    Does your wii have to be on the most current firmware to play online?

    No, the "system menu" version doesn't affect the ability to play a game offline or online.
    What is important is the IOS installed and used to launch the game.

    Most games use old IOS, so you shouldn't have any problem.
    Follow modMii tutorial if you want to hack your Wii.

    Wouldn't it be funny if an admin or mod only read the topic title and decided to ban the topic starter?

    They ARE capable of detecting cheats, but it is usually integrated into the individual game and not the system itself. CAPCOM is the most active I know in detecting this. In MH3 you will get banned for 10 days for cheating once and banned for life for cheating again...

    edit: cheats only suck in games where people play against other people. Once I finish a game legit I will experiment with cheats to have some EXTRA fun. Cheats on cod and mk suck ass cuz it just ruins the game, yet cheaters don't ever get banned or caught [​IMG]

    Seems more likely that certain games will ban you from their services, but nintendo wont ban you themselves.
