Hello, I am currently living in Africa and stuck with dial-up+satellite for a decent Internet connection.

Moreover, I only have an USB satellite modem connected to my laptop and sharing Internet connection
through it via Connectify. The sharing does seem to work, albeit very slow, with a 2nd laptop, say.

After many unsuccessful attempts in the past, yesterday I gave it another try and my WII magically got
connection through Connectify with satellite on. I guess the new 2.2.0 version of Connectify finally
manages to somehow handle satellite (i.e. VPN) connection reasonably well now. With older versions
of Connectify I could only get a positive connection test with satellite disconnected and dial-up only.

Sorry if I am getting long.. but my question really is: even though I pass the connection test, even
though when starting the Homebrew channel I get a message asking me if I want to upgrade to the
newer version (I am stuck on 1.0.1..) , which I gather it means my WII really sees the Internet,
when I accept the upgrade to latest Homebrew it stops with "download failed" all the time.

Any clues? Dial-up still the bottleneck or still some VPN issues? Or maybe Connectify/network
configurations?

If it can help, my WII reports to be 192.168.2.102 on Connectify (and in the Homebrew channel)
and I am running Windows 7 Home Premium SP3 32 bit.

Thanks for any help!

    Huh, makes sense; they did sell that through the 3D All-Stars collection.

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Which, last I heard was removed from the eShop...so they might as well offer it again, I guess...

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Will they use the same Shindou-translated ROM, or the original English ROM?
    Gift
  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    googling it, it seems that mario 64 is on the service

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    in japan they use the shindou version apparently but in the states and elsewhere they use the original rom

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    honestly the whole expansion pack confuses me since i thought the nes/snes games were just a neat little bonus
