    I recently got the PAL Mario Kart Wii, and I've been pretty happy with it so far. However, A message did pop up that I thought seemed unimportant, and that was the whole "you're running 50hz it can run in 60hz instead" message (or something similar to that).

    Anyways, my question is: ingame, does your Mario Kart Wii run at a full 60 frames per second? In my Mario Kart Wii, the menus are all pretty smooth, but once I'm playing a single-player game, the frame rate takes a hit goes down to 30ish. You think it could be the whole 50/60hz deal?

    somewhere
    I have seen slight jittering with 2 player online, but no problems with single player or even multi player offline. I have no way of checking the framerate. But like I said, no problems with single player online.

    i have noticed this too. But i have only used it on a lcd monitor with has issues with 60hz so i have to have it in 50hz. This is probably why the frame rate is lagging.
    try switching to 60.

    Here and there
    from ign:

    solo play = 60fps, online and offline
    2 players or more = 30 fps, sometimes goes down to 25 or less

    from their last nintendo podcast

    The 50Hz/60Hz thing means that you can have 50 FPS with a higher resolution, or 60 FPS with a lower resolution.

    Oh yeah, I should have probably mentioned that I'm using a TV Tuner card for my Wii, and I'm using DScaler via S-video for my stuff, haha.

    Is there any way I can change the hz on Wii or on the Tuner Card?

    There's a setting in the Wii Menu somewhere to change it to 60Hz.
