    stupid question but when nintendon't in vwii mode is used is it upscaled like the wii games or is it left the way it originally was?

    Should be up scaled, but it doesn’t really negatively impact the output

    everything in vwii is "upscalled" well its barely noticable but it is, vwii itself is upscalled.

    probably at home
    I think Kirby looks better on vWii than on the Wii, and I'm using quality component cables on the Wii.
    But that's just my opinion ;)

    Nintendont is technically not an emulator It it is more like a bridge between an emulator and a virtual machine which runs Gamecube games natively.

    Certain parts such as SI for controls, EXI for memory card and DI for data reads are emulated. The rest is just patched to match the Wii syscalls.

    I find it quite annoying at times when vwii upscales things. I'd say just download Dolphin for PC instead.

    Not really. Dolphin natively renders the games at a higher resolution, it doesn't upscale.

    Did you maybe watch the video with the quality setting at least 720p, if not 1080p? If you still don't see the difference, maybe visit the optometrist, and I sincerely mean that.

    when you don't see it, then there is no need for you to worry about it. maybe get new glasses. but if you're happy with it, then it's totally fine with me.

    It's not emulation it's native code run as is.
    Only difference is it is not running in a 100% gamecube mode but the gamecube game is essentially faked to run as a Wii Game. (gamecube and wii being same system, just Wii being beefed up with few additional hardware things and majorly software things)

    nintendont does emulate some components here and there but every cpu and graphic stuff are not emulated, just redirected to wii calls.
