    I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I was playing WaveRace 64 on VC and noticed that they modified some of the textures for their banner advertisements.

    Banners for the Wii and DS Lite have been added in place of what I believe used to be the Nintendo logo.

    Personally, I don't mind the changes, but think they should go the extra length and convert everything to higher resolution textures, while they're at it.


    Is there anyone that would rather have the nostalgia?

    Dont go too far, if anythings more work for nintendo they're not going to do it [​IMG]

    I noticed the NDS lite banners too.. When I first seen it im like "WHOA! How did they know there would be a NDS lite back in 97!?" [​IMG]

    I guess I wouldnt mind a few graphical changes but then they would have the nerve to jack up the prices [​IMG] Not that I buy them anyway [​IMG]

    But In the end I think the whole point of VC is to have the same game you grew to love for a small price so I suppose it should stay the same.

    They removed the ads because the contract with the company the ads were with had expired.

    Has anyone tried injecting a waverace rom (with original advertising) into WaveRace VC?
    If so does it work perfectly?
