    Setting the date past the release date did nothing.

    Okay, so people have got to the SMG wii boot screen, and it goes black after that.

    If it's a fake, would you even be able to get that far?

    Isn't it possible that the in store demo pods have different serial numbers than retail Wii's and the game just checks if the Wii is a demo pod?

    Original copies work on modded Wiis.

    Yeah, this has to be one of those demo discs...yeah, I like that theory.

    3 weeks before release, and it was announced in that last demo thread that ended up being a fake. Someone said the demo would be properly dumped by a scene, and this would be it.

    Anywho, demo or not, someone will crack it.

    POTACO > I know, that was not what I was saying... I ment, maybe this disc (which is obviously ment for in store demo-pods) checks the Wii's internal serial number, checking if it's a demo-pod or not... If it's not, it makes the game inoperable. Seems like a logical explanation to me.

    Again, original discs worked fine on peoples modded systems at home, so that theory doesn't fly.

    I like how in this thread, everyone is ignoring what all the other people who had the game early said.

    1. The original works on modded consoles
    2. It is the full game
    3. The backup gets to the Super Mario Galaxy splash screen (while still in the Wii Menu, before actually executing the game) then gives a black screen + error message once you try to run the game.


    Most likely, a new dump will be required. My guess is (as I said in another post), Nintendo implemented a new disc check in the update included with the game. This would explain why the full game works, but the copy does not; there is some data on the disc burned a certain way so that it cannot be copied by simple 1 - 1 burning.

    gitkua: people with the origional can play it on their wii's at home but if they burn it and try to play it we get the error so thats not the problem its the new protection

    I'm putting my money on people having to find other ways on how to effectively burn discs. If the original works on modded Wiis, then it means that it has something to do with the way it's copied and burned.

    Here is a pic of an original kiosk version running perfectly fine on a regular home console. This rules out it checking for a serial number or a kiosk console.

    Wrong, people have already tested an original disc on their modded Wiis - from what I understand the current chips deactivate when they detect an original disc.

    If they included some sort of trickery that meant a chip was the only way certain code would be executed at all (in all other cases it would be invalid), then this can obviously happen. Or it might just be some sort of firmware checksum, who knows?

    I'd be interested to see what would happen if the chip was forced to do its usual thing it would do for backups even though an original was inserted...

    No sarcasm intended... I am seriously loving all this speculation. Exciting times at GBATemp I say! SMG doesn't get released in Oz for about 4 weeks yet! Last place to get it, I believe...
