if you're using usb loader gx, disable emunand support (if using it). I tested the game again yesterday after playing my favorite game dkc returns. before doing that, metroid primes 1 and 2 seemed to work without a problem, but metroid prime 3 would restart my system randomly at boot up. now, it works every time. and, I can get out of the games with wiimote as well, which takes me back to usb loader gx. I mentioned this as being a problematic game to @blackb0x , who's now taken the lead as developer of the project after @Cyan retired from it.

if that doesn't work, try selecting "use alt dol." then, the option below it will allow you to boot each one of the games individually.

someone else had this problem with that vc game. however, the restarting of the system can't be helped. that's how the vwii reacts with vc games. it's not fixable afaik.

I actually bought trilogy, and mine does the same thing. if you don't want it to do that, the only way really is to hack the vwii, then have it go back to something like usb loader gx. however, the system will restart when you try to go back to the wii u home menu just like it always does with a vwii vc game.

btw, you'll have to use a wbfs version of the game in this instance. it will use the same saves as the vc version too, so your saves won't be lost.

    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

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • 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

    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

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    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

  • 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.

  • 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.
