when i reset a vc title my wii just do a complete restart. i think when you do a reset in a vc game, only the vc game should restart. so whats wrong with my wii that it does a complete restart when i push the reset button?

Nothing. The reset button resets the console except in Gamecube mode, then it resets the MIOS and restarts the game.

im pretty sure that i dont have a correct reset function. i saw other people resetting their vc games without entering wii menu. the thing is i want to do some runs of mario kart 64 on vc. when i reset i come into home menu. other runners only resets the game. look at this vid for example https://www.twitch.tv/videos/47749517 when he resets after the last track of a cup he is still in the game.

Yes, the implementation of the reset button is up to each software

What's happening to you suggests that the app tries to relaunch itself (as opposed to restarting without reloading, or doing absolutely nothing, or...), but for some reason it can't reload

Are you running it in the only proper way (directly from internal memory) or are you using emunand, loaders, or similiar things?

My N64 VC NAND-loaded (PAL60 patched) WADs have this same issue.

Yes, that is correct. The N64 VC emulator is programmed to reset itself completely when restarted (as in resetting from the HOME Menu and then going through the Classic Controller screen again), unlike other VC emulators such as NES, SNES, Genesis or TG16, which are programmed to not reset completely, but instead close the HOME Menu and reset only the ROM itself (no Classic Controller screen at all when resetting).

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.
  • Costello @ Costello:
    lollypops? a whole bag?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
