Hello friends,

No matter what I seem to try my games seem to freeze(there is a long beep) and stop working after anywhere between few seconds or up to 20 minutes of game play, forcing me to manually shut of my console. I've tried everything, but the problem never changes.

important info first
-I'm using a 32gb north american console on 5.5.1U
-no cfw installed on WII U itself, launcher is opened from browser
-US version of games downloaded using usb helper and Utik download helper
-various 64gb SD cards where used (formatted to fat32)
- Games tested are BOTW and Pikamn 3
- other games work fine when played from the disk and have never frozen before

Initially I tried installing the games and updates on to a 128gb usb 3.0 stick using WUP installer. No dice. From there I deleted the updates and installed them directly from Nintendo servers. Also no dice. I tried again using a different download of the files and on different usb sticks to no success. From there I tried installing games to NAND and again downloading updates from Nintendo, but this changed nothing. I repeated the above using different versions of WUP installer (latest, gx2, Y mod), this also changed nothing. I also tried a factory reset (delete all content). At this point I can't think of anything else to try; all advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

It seems to be hardware-related issue. Others experience it, others don't.
So, try checking if fan is doing it's job correctly perhaps?

Thanks for the response; the fan seems to be working just fine. What confuses me is why games run fine from the disk, yet freeze constantly when played off NAND or USB.

It's probably hardware problem like i said before. Might be something with memory itself.

Hello, I have a question...
Have been playing breath of the wild and the game freezes at an specific point in the map, so I decided to install a different dump of the game.
Now, if I install another dump of the game but it's from the same region will it wipe out my save data?
Because that happened me once with Smash but being honest I don't remember the exact conditions that caused the issue...
Thanks in advance

Go to Data Managment and press BotW. Delete Software data and update data manually. [This way you will keep your saves]

It's sounds like your system could be the culprit. Do you own any retail games digitally on your account that you could test? it would rule out hardware issues.
I do not, but sounds like it's worth trying. I'll see if there is anything free or cheap I can download and then I'll report back. Thanks for the suggestion !

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.

    Not exactly 3D but the colors does pops out more
