    another one, this could probably mean that if nintendo choose to use this protection for new games in the future we may have to buy new modchips that have brand new hardware to counteract this, and that's the last thing i need.

    The question, as I see it, comes down to 'what does the unauthorised message actually mean'?

    Everyone has assumed it's a mod-chip message instead of a 'not running on a kiosk' message.

    Reason I suggest this is, if I were Nintendo, I would want to have a method whereby if anyone copied a kiosk game it would not run on a non-kiosk WII. This would e above and beyond the normal disc protection (CAV to CLV?)

    It's just funny how it would be on this title and not on, say, Metroid Prime European release.

    Interesting times.

    This had to happen sooner or later.

    You are all ignoring the fact that all modchips ARE EASILY DETECTABLE, in spite of what most modchip websites tell you.
    It is actually very easy to do so, so i would bet it just detects the modchip and refuses to run.
    That explains the unauthorized device error. It detects a modified drive's firmware.

    ("stealth mode/undetectable"means the wiikey/wiinja/etc.. people didn't include a feature to detect the modchip.)

    so this is probably a perfectly good dump.

    It's a perfectly good dump, but this means that we have to figure out how to rip it in a new way (or) modify the dump itself so that it runs. Note that the actual copy runs perfectly on a modded Wii, as reiterated MANY times already.

    There is, of course, the simplest of theories.....
    Nintendo have used a dual layer disc and check for that.

    And tbh I am happy this happens this game deserves the sales. So stop whining that you can't play this 3 weeks in advance.

    Its so funny to see people with next to no knowledge about the workings of modchips freak out and announce the end of pirating.
    It'll be fixed eventually. Remember Super Paper Mario? OMG! MODCHIPS ARE DOOMED!

    it could be.... like i said before if it gets too serious and renders the current modchips useless we would either have to wait until a new generation of modchip comes out or we get custom firmware to download to ours wiis, somehow.

    I did post it but it has errored in the database. If you look at the Mario number and the Monster Trux number you can see they are numbered correctly to include Avatar between them.
    Small bug in the RMC were working on it [​IMG]

    how much do you wanna bet? metroid prime 3 had problems with the update being removed, when people tried to contact the creator of wiibrickblocker they didn't seem to care or want to update their program to fix these problems, don't expect a fix anytime soon.

    Nope, if they built in some sort of check, which is the most probable thing so far, you would have to patch the code inside the disk,
    but since it is encrypted you wont be able to do that for now.

    DAMN, WHERE IS WII HOMEBREW when wee need it? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hi,

    Once it is in my local video shop i will just hire it and use soft dev sd-dvd utility to back up.
    Maybe that will work as it will copy exactly what has to be read.

    Cheers Shane

    Exactly what I was thinking. This all is pure speculation. Untill there is a dump from a retail version (for sure...when it hits the streets), we do not now anything for sure. Just wait and see... [​IMG]

    metroid already worked perfectly fine on native regions. cross-region alone is not enough reason perhaps, but not being able to run a game natively would for people to try.

    Anyway people, stop freaking out. It's either a fake / demodisc or it has a copy protection like PC games have had for YEARS now (checking specific sectors, stuff like that).
    Sit tight until the official release and then draw conclusions, not now.

    Well a program came out to remove the update system that some games had, so surly if it is a program on the dvd that checks for a mod chip etc, then it will only be a matter of time before a program is released to remove this from the dvd aswell???

    This is a long shot, but has anyone tried changing the Wii System date foward to when the game is actually released?

    Blocking chipped Wiis would be a really stupid move from Nintendo.

    First of all, Wii does not have that many games. Only ones worth buying are from N itself and in case some unhyped pearl slips out from previously unheard 3rd party developer, the ones to create anticipation will be people with modded Wiis.

    Nintendo is not losing money from people with modded machines and they know it. If one plays a burnt game, it does not mean he/she is going to buy it. (Especially not with european prices.) Wii is doing great selling accessories. Hell, even being as cheap as I am, I have two wiimotes, two nunchucks, one classic controller, a Wavebird, GC memory card, couple of VC games and Wii itself (a la paperweight), that I paid friggin 400$ for.
    Instead of allowing me to get one game a year and letting Wii collect dust for 11 months after I finish it, N would rather allow me to play burnt games and sell pricy VC crap on every opportunity they see.
