    Hey, I'm playing the wii on a nice 16:9 HDTV, and I'd like to know if there was a way to somewhat upconvert the virtual console games.

    I want to say I heard there was a controller combination to execute upon booting them up to make them appear crisper.

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
    Does anyone know the combination?

    Are you sure your not speaking about an emulator.

    Yes. I'm absolutely positive.

    They say the Virtual Console has a gimmick to it that you hold a combination of buttons down, and upon booting up the Virtual Console game from the wii menu, the image would be upscaled for nicer t.v.s

    When the system is set to 480p, the majority of VC games will automatically display in 480p.

    With the exception of Neo Geo. For those you'll probably have to use that button combination.

    Thank you so much!
    This was exactly what I was looking for.

    It gets me to wonder why not too many people know about this combination. Not even over at GameFAQs...

    But again, thank you.

    And this actually works for some? does nothing here so far. From what i can understand it isnt upscaling but rather just support for the "Wii Component Cable Interlace mode."
