Learning from my previous experience, I'm planning on bringing my Wii to my friend's house to play Brawl. Are there any precautions to take? Should I take the disc out first? Make sure it reads the disc beforehand (it worked at my house, but not at my friend's)? Any help? Appreciated.

Nintendo said it.... Use the wrist strap!

other than this... I wouldn't leave a disk in the drive when traveling... personnaly, I've cracked a disk in my laptop when traveling.

Probably make sure your Wii is secure while you're traveling with it. It may be that my Wii hit something that caused the GPU to get messed up, which then caused overheating dot artifacting.

take out the disc before traveling. sometimes it jiggles the unsecured modchip wires in a funny way where backups doesnt work. i know this from experience.

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.

    @Maximumbeans, I had a friend who had a glass chess set for their birthday.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    It was like all clear and fancy. Tbf I'm not too experienced with chess, but would like to learn someday.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    That sounds really cool
