    (I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but it's my best guess... Sorry in advance if it isn't.)

    Hey, so I recently just got Wii U homebrew working on my console, being a complete beginner to the Wii U homebrew world, it took me a while to setup, but I managed.

    I got a few games on it, one of those being PMD: Explorers of Sky. After a while of playing that, I remembered that the game had NWFC capability. NWFC is long gone, but we have other services such as Wiimmfi or AltWFC.

    I tried configuring the WFC settings in the game itself, but it was unable to find any access points, for some reason. I guess it was somehow deactivated by Nintendo.

    So my question is: Is it possible to modify the game(and any other NWFC capable game) or console in such a way that it would be able to find a router and connect to the internet? If this is done, then the only other thing that really needs to be done is patch the game so that it'll connect to a different server, but that'll be easy, since all you really have to do is obtain the rom, use the NDS Wiimmfi patcher on it, and then inject the patched rom into the console.

    Thanks in advance, for any sort of response.

    It's possible but you have to edit NDS VC game by yourself to enable that

    What would I have to edit inside the game to get it to work?

    I don't believe the emulator supports Wi-Fi. Why would it need to if NWC shut dwn?

    It wouldn't(and I guess it's not possible to change this based on your post), but the fact that the option to even connect to the WFC is left there just goes to show how lazy they are. >_>

    Not really-Getting DS emulation to run on a Wii U is a pretty big hassle in the first place, and most DS emulators don't support Nintendo WFC either except for this one specific version of DesMuMe that only works on Windows. Adding Nintendo WFC support would also mean that you have to make the emulator efficient enough to run DS games with WiFi, and you'd have to add yet even more WiFi settings for DS networking. All in all, it's a lot of work for a feature that was discontinued before the launch of DS VC on the Wii U.

    I don't think you interpreted my post correctly - I mean that if they didn't intend to have any Wifi support, they should have just removed the option to connect. Of course implementing it would take hard work. >_>

    I managed to get CoD DS working with Wimmfi. You just need to screw around with options.

    On the official emulator, on DesMuMe, or using a flashcard?

    That requires them to manually edit the ROM, which is kind of tedious and might cause some backlash for not just reuploading the original version.

    Local multiplayer options are there too though obviosly not enabled, don't think it's lazyness, they just like offer the game as close as the original one, without any changes.

    Someone doesnt know what emulation is...

    they just use the same rom and throw it on the emulator, what you were asking nintendo to do would be to change the entire game sourecode and delete anything that wasnt supported..
