Nintendo channel no longer works, and i want to see my play time/times played records...

i am NOT sure if this is the right board to ask, so if it isn't, can someone kindly redirect me to the correct one? Thanks.

Sad we only have one app for this, Playstats is great, i use it alot, but it's not updated for about 2 years, and still have a few bugs.

Would be awesome if we could playlog GameCube Games too

Playlog is registered when exiting a game and returning to system menu.

If you use a loader which is patching the "return to", to return directly to the loader you won't have the game and play time updated.
Same for gamecube, as you can't return to system menu when playing a GC game (in gameCube mode).

It might be possible when using Devolution/Nintendont as they are running in Wii mode using IOS, they should technically be able to exit the game without shutting down the console but they need to return to System menu and not to their loader.

Wiinnertag and DUtag are only websites which receives "update" through simple URLs, for example : website.com/user=Cyan&privatekey=1234&game=Mario
When you visit this URL, the website update your tag with "last played game = Mario".
you can visit and update the tag manually, no need to use a Wii (just go to the URL)

To support play time, the Wii would need to send data (visit the URL) to Wiinnertag website at two different times: one at launch, one when quiting/exiting/shutting down.
If you exit the game, the Wii can't send data to wiinnertag, only the loader can. And unless you "return to the loader" immediately after playing it's not possible.
If you shutdown the console and load it back few hours later, it will send the wrong play time.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    @SG854 not only that look at how much you get on the sony side for around the same price

    nintendo's offering was the worst deal but nobody cared because it was $20

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    now that it's $50, it's a really bad deal

    also costing only $20 kinda excuses the poor online services a little bit, $50 demands better quality online

    they should've just offered a better service to begin with and charged $50 from the beginning
