    So the USA version has been released.
    I think I'll choose PAL instead though, seeing as I has a PAL tv and Wii.

    Somebody please compare this to the previous US release. I have my suspicions that the leaked release was actually a PAL version patched to run NTSC, because there was some serious scan-linage going on in parts.

    I can confirm that the previous US leaked release wasnt a PAL iso patched.
    That iso runs on Wode... and this modchip cant run patched isos if you dont have the needed cIOS

    Sorry, guy. Scanlines are horizontal. The lines you were seeing were vertical lines related to the engine itself. They also appeared in Wind Waker (Check out Link's hat: http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/4752/gc2oq2.jpg), Galaxy, and a few other Nintendo games. They're really visible at times in Skyward Sword though. To help your suspicions, my friend owns a legitimate USA copy and they appear sadly :(

    PAL is actually superior and has no problems with scanlines, a higher resolution and since the 80es 60 Herz.
    But seriously, don't u attach your Wii to an HD TV? If so, don't use RGB/Scart but Component Cables and you wont have such problems.

    Had this for a while now, the previous non scene release was perfect so i guess ill pass since this it totally useless. Scene or not, this was already released and they are friggin late, dunno why people would pick this instead especially since they should've been playing this for a while now lol

    I always thought the characters had the same sounds in every Zelda game... It doesn't really matter though considering how the characters never even speak (aside from Zelda singing near the beginning).

    Thank you. I complained about those lines the first day Wind Waker was in stores, and everyone on the planet told me I was crazy, seeing things, had a bad disc, a crappy tv, bad cables, and everything else you could think of.

    Anyone who has a savegame from rigth after the bird race? I tried it for aeons but i hate the bird controls and cant catch the bird still. My patience with it has ran out.
    The sword controls are great, i just so loathe the shitty bird flying.

    Its not worth the hastle on this game. They will sell a shit ton of this game and those that pirate just to pirate wont matter enough to have AP. Most people that pirate will still buy this game because they are true fans of the series.

    don't be a spaz, and make sure the motion+ is calibrated right before. the race was pretty easy.

    The bird that you are trying to catch flies in a pattern. Don't try and catch him from behind, cut him off.
