    is there anyway you can hack a wii game that only runs in 480i to 480p? Kind of like the xbox?

    Mmmmmm..... well I only have seen one game trying to run in 480i even if I use composite cables, and that was IronMan, but no issue or problem, just that the game doesn't have 480p compatibility, what is exactly your problem...??

    I think he just wants to upscale the games, the way the XBOX or an upscaling DVD player would.

    not upscaling, just forcing the video output. Like some of the xbox games only support 480i, such as metal slug, and darkwatch etc, but you can use hex edit to change the video output so they game will play at 480p. Im just wondering if this can be done on the wii games also.

    if the game doesnt actually support it then no, if your tv does upscaling u might be able to
