Why is the sound quality so poor for N64 games?

    Well, I've never bought anything from the Virtual Console store, but all of the N64 games I installed on the Wii have some kind of distorted sound quality. It could be, because all games I happened to install are NTSC, and I have a PAL Wii, but I doubt it, since the problem seems to be specific to the N64 games played on the Wii.

    Is there any way to fix this problem?

    no, its because your playing ntsc ones on your pal wii. I have an NTSC wii, and installed a mario 64 pal wad before, sound was distorted in it. Used one that was NTSC, sound was perfect.

    perhaps injecting waninkoko's nand loader in the channel can help you

    I figured that out by now...

    Anyway, I tried the European version of the game, but after I start the game up, it returns immediately to the system menu. Anyone know what's up with that?

    Ah, thanks. That was it. I installed IOS53 and it worked like a charm (finding it was a bit of a pain, however).
