So my wii got dropped a few days ago, and the disk drive stopped working. I had been playing with mario kart wii lately and since the drive doesn't work, i can't use my disc anymore. Is it possible to use a wiikey fusion with a backup of my disc with riivolution through the 2nd sd slot?

I have Wiikey Fusion installed on my Wii and I can confirm that unfortunately it is not possible to use Riivolution with a disc backup in the respective SD slot as it can detect that an original disc has not been inserted.

I believe there are ways to patch individual games and load them normally through USB loaders, which has the same effect as using Riivolution.

If you're in the market to buy such a device, you could go for a sundriver.
It's a replacement ODDE for your DVD drive that allows you to load games from a 2.5 inch harddrive (internally in the wii)

The games load like retail so you can use Riivolution.

Edit: I meself got one and must admit, best investment ever.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages
    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
