Well, this one has me baffled. I consider myself to be rather tech savvy, but I can't figure out what's going on here. My newly developed problem is this: I'll sign onto WFC, select my character and kart, be assigned to a group of other racers, then sent to watch the current race before mine comes up. After that race concludes, however, it just says "waiting..." for a minute before saying "you have been disconnected from the other players".

Yes, it's a legitimate, retail purchased disc. I haven't made any recent changes to the Wii or my internet settings/router, etc. I haven't altered anything that, in my mind, should be causing this to happen. What's bizarre is that obviously I can still connect to WFC, as I can get assigned to a race, but then it always craps out on me before I actually get to play. It worked fine for months, then it just stopped. Any ideas? Thanks!

I'm getting a similar thing, its worked for months, then i stopped playing mario kart for a few months go back try it cant get it to connect ever right as the race starts it boots me everytime, whether i play with friends or just random people, or 1-2 players. And it does it whether i boot from the game disc or USB loader exact same thing, brawl and other online games work fine, and i dont have torrents or anything else using bandwith for that matter so i know thats not the problem, anyone have any ideas?

Edit: Unless its a wireless issue, my isp does kinda suck but i should still be able to play online games, im using a linksys router maybe thats the problem? I've checked around found nothing

    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
    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

    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

    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.
