    I just use Mocha without Rednand. So no, you don't need it.

    Beautiful, I just have one question and you may know the answer. Is there a way to get rid of the washed out and dark look of let's say N64 games? While doing an injection? I am sorry, I just didn't know where to ask and you seem savy enough.

    Still, thank you so much for this tutorial, I will be sure using it too! :)

    I know this is a noob question, but I can't find the answer anywhere so I'll ask here. I know Coldboot Haxchi can brick your console but can regular Haxchi ban your console?

    No mate, don't worry :) That won't happen. Nintendo only bans cheaters or people who use fraudulent game codes.

    I briefly had a look at N64 injects and couldn't find a brightness option. :(

    I've updated the guide to a fix a few silly mistakes. I would update the Wiki Compatibility Page, but I have no idea how you make an account? :(
    May need to contact a mod.

    Thanks for taking the time in answering. It is sad, but well, our old TV's weren't as clear so I guess we can live with N64 games a bit darker. Cheers and have a good week man.

    Ahem, it's Catman.
    Oh, and BTW, I didn't even know some of the things in the tutorial even existed, like how the Manual is arranged for example.
    sorry for bumping

    My apologies for spelling your name wrong. South Park must have been on my mind. The name has been fixed. If it makes you feel better, I've been called RadioShow before. :P

    I have a silly question, is there any way I can hack the Nintendo DS Virtual Console on Wii U to enable Wi-Fi and Wireless functions? I was playing Pokémon SoulSilver on it and I got this idea in my head, I I remember that there was the Nintendo Channel that sent Demos to the DS via Download Play on Wii, as well as games that connected locally between Wii and DS (Final Fantasy and Pokemon Battle Revolution for example) so '' technically '' the console is capable of such functions, right?

    PS: Sorry for my english, I'm Brazilian.

    Umm, no. The games ported to VC have all real wireless functions completely removed, though the options still show up. Strange, yes. No way to do it though.

    It's no way to bring back that's functions ?

    I remember that both Wii and Wii U vWii have support for Multiplayer Local and Local Functions via Wireless with other Nintendo DS / 3DS ( Mii Channel to send Mii for Tomadachi Collection, Final Fantasy Echoes of Time for Local Multiplayer, Pokémon Battle Revolution for Local Wireless Interactions, Nintendo Channel to send Demos via Download Play etc... ), I was thinking, if the console is able to do such a function, maybe there's some way to include it in Virtual Console, right?

    I noticed that the DS Virtual Console also ''catch'' some Wii U information like a vWii, for example the clock ( Local Time ) and console nickname, maybe there's a way to "force" him to get the internet connection information too?

    They even managed to do something like the Nintendo Channel back, maybe suddenly serve the interest of someone to work on some means of Virtual Console DS on Wii U have such functions

    Sorry for the late reply. vWii is way different than VC. vWii is literally a Wii console in the Wii U. You have to boot into it, basically a Wii baked into the console. It's not emulated, though the name suggests otherwise :D. VC, however, is just an emulator on the Wii U, it runs the game in a sandbox and has no real access to the functions of the actual console (WiFi). Yeah, so unless you physically add a DS to your Wii U and figure out a way to boot into it, I'm sorry, though I would like local/online play in VC too.

    Thanks for explain to me, I hope someday someone can put those functions in the VC D: , I really do not think this is impossible.

    It would be so wonderful to be able to connect the Wii U directly to the Nintendo DS and transfer Pokémon, or even play Mario Kart DS with the Wiimmfi servers in the Nintendo DS Virtual Console on Wii U

    It is possible to force a language on games that check by using a cheat code. Since the BIOS gets dump in the same RAM position for every game, we can patch the game to use the language we want.

    Thankfully there is a tool that can easily patch this code. Look out for an update on the guide so.

    If I understood this correct, you are asking if you can install your own save? It is possible using Savinne. It does require a computer to extract and install the the save.

    I may add it to the guide, but all you have to do is delete the save-state file and replace the .sav file (it's RAW Format, convert on this website: http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php).

    A detailed answer has been responded to this, but short answer is no. The original VC releases don't support wireless functions because the Wii U uses different wireless functions to the DS. Without hardware modifications, this won't work.

    Thanks for replying, sorry for my english I was using Google Translator, I had already put Pokémon on Wii U have a little time xD (SoulSilver with translate patch for Portuguese-Brazilian) it's fine work, some glitches but playable, I managed to import and export saves with SaveMii without problem
    About Black / White I did not even want to test because I saw people talking that it did not work.
