    It seems like these are the only games (that aren't on virtual console) that aren't playable. I mean banjo-kazooie, diddy kong racing and mischief makers all work. So why not theses two? Is Wii64 even still being worked on?

    kazzoie is playable but the other 2 forget about it unless you love incredibly slow fps and dk64 full of glitches out of the ass

    i believe Banjo Tooie was only hacked the other day and now works amazingly on emulators now
    you just have to run the rom through a patch

    Oh ok.

    Back on topic, so running the patch on the ROM makes it work in Wii64? Or will Wii64 also need an update?

    it should make it run, the game pretty much failed to work on all emulators until this patch was released

    Banjo Tooie already runs on not64 with FB textures ON.
    IDK if this patch makes it perform better with Not64 can anyone test it?

    it's been working perfectly in 1964 (and pj64 but crashes a lot).
    runs and fully playable are entirely different the game is painfully slow to play like 10 fps. you also do realize this patch is so it will circumvent the copy protection so it runs on devices like the Everdrive 64?

    Nope. I just tried it. With FB textures ON, it plays in slow motion. With FB textures OFF, you see nothing but white all around banjo. I don't really see what this patch did. Disappointed.

    Are you sure about the .bak file ? Because generally those are backup of the ORIGINAL file, not the patched file. The patched file should overwrite the orifinal .z64 or .v64 file. Changing file extensions is generally a bad idea.

    Anyway, all this patch does is fixing a copy protection check in the ROM for emulators that does not emulate the CIC chip right. It won't magically fix slowdown on emulators running on less powerful systems li like the Wii. The only way to "fix" that is to optimize the emulator even more, which is not always possible and obviously not so easy as a simple "patch"

    Hmm you're right. I tried it again. This time the patched rom won't even work! I just get a black screen when I load it.

    tried to tell you dude the patch does nothing. until not/wii64 are updated more it's not possible to fully play these games on the wii.
