So the range on my gamepad has recently become unbearable to the point where I'm getting drop outs even when being right next to the console, having done a quick search it seems loads of people have experienced the same issue of the range gradually deteriorating, apparently I can fix it by replacing the MICA2 bluetooth/wifi module...

But, my question is this - what's the deal with this chip's performance deteriorating so fast? I've never experienced anything like it before.

Is it due to bad quality hardware, and how long is lifespan supposed to be on them?

I'm worried about replacing it, then having the same problem again in the future and not being able to find these chips - basically rendering my WiiU useless.

    Just double click the folder and add it
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    The root folder where you have games stored
  • HiradeGirl @ HiradeGirl:
    Yeah, just try the "add new game directory".

    no error message, and its just a file not a folder

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yeah but Citra uses that to scan folders
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So it could be like C:\\Games\folder\game.Cci

    Think this Nyko PowerPak+ in my OG 3DS is starting to expand ever so slightly 😨 what a shame, to have to go back to an OG size battery soon.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Most emulators will be like that where it asks for a parent directory
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    @Sicklyboy, 3ds batteries are fairly cheap just don't overspend on oem
