Hi all! I have an old Wii with a broken sync button. In the past I opened it up and shorted the sync button to synv a Wii remote. I don't want to do that.

Can I use software to put console in sync mode? We can reset, power up and down and even eject the disc with hombrew.. any do the sync button?

Where is the wii remote sync file stored on the console? Can I edit it or anything?

I have another Wii, could I back up the broken Wii's NAND in bootmii, run it in EmuNAND (NEEK ) on the good Wii, Sync it there, and copy the sync file back the broken Wii? Maybe the entire nand backup?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance. It's been like 8 years like this..

I can think off using emunand on dolphin, sync wiimote ther, and copy the updated Wii/shared2/sys/SYSCONF back to your wii afterwards.

Other than that, i don't know...

Okay, TY. So the remote info is in the SYSCONF file...

How did the button break?

Originally it was through normal use. I took it to some schmuck to repair it. One foot was broken. He pulled the other one off and decided it was too small for him to solder... It's been this way for almost a decade.

What Homebrew app can copy this file over without a wii remote? I can access the HBC and I have GC controllers..


-You can try use wiixplorer. If not:



you can use usbloaderGX with a gamecube controller (i think)....


-Create emunand there on you usb device, based of your sysnand.
-that emunand will be used on dolphin
-sync your emunand on dolphin, and see if the sysconfig files has changed
-put back you usb device on your wii, load usbloaderGX, launch a game (emunand saves full setting), see if wiimote is synced.

    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

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • 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

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    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

    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

    "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

  • 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

  • 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.
