    For a few months now there has been an effort to create a private server for Monster Hunter Tri to regain the online component of the game. The efforts are led primarily by ngevan2k who hosts a forum about the project at sufami.org

    The forum is difficult to navigate due to a large number of bots posting, but the discoveries of weaknesses and ways to exploit the ssl certificate system are compelling. Anyone interested in preserving the online components of Nintendo Wii would do well to check out the site.

    The latest news post about the discovery is here: http://www.sufami.org/thread.php?board=8&thema=23&page=1

    I think it's interesting to say the least. This could be the final step to the wii home-brew community taking control of every function of Nintendo's most hacked console!

    Dead link "Access to this server is forbidden from your client" Please fix or try to find a working link :P Lolwut? Yeah, no one can access that link, the site block access.

    Edit: Seems some IP addresses re blacklists, nothing a proxy server can't fix. Downloaded the file on the forums, might re-upload for those who are interested (unless that's against the rules) and can't access the site.

    I guess it's blocked to some countries due to a ridiculous amount of spamming on his forum. Here is a quote of his latest post:



    Sorry you can't access his site but many others can, and are posting there regularly.

    Crap happens, no worries. Too bad I can't contact the admin. Anyways, I found a way to access it, I just used a proxy server and loads just fine. Also downloaded the file, maybe I'll re-upload for anyone else who can't access it ;) You can't even register on there, he has it blocked so, yeah, no chance of unblocking blocks lol.

    He does have an email or some way to contact does he?

    Heh, joke's on the person who blocked the address, I still get access :P

    I usually contact him through the forum, but I'll see about getting some contact info from him.

    Yeah, IP blocks are bloody inconvenient IMHO ;) C'est la vie. I hope that people can save the Wii WiFi services somehow.

    I'm still waiting for some talented programmers making an Xbox Live clone for the original Xbox.
    It's well documented and it could be done.
    Iirc, they where working on it.

    I'd love to see the weather channel up again.
    It's fun to check out temperatures across the globe.

    Unfortunately the last time I checked this whole effort has dropped off the face of the web. I got a wiiU and lost interest to be honest, but if it ever resurfaces, I would love to see this project come to fruition.

    Why is the site sufami.org inaccesible? Is it down?

    I think it was intended to be a joke thread. Notice it's from 2015 as well :P
