Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone he has tried a 4:3 aspect ration Wii game upscaled to 720/1080p on the Wii U?

Examples would be: WarioWare, Guilty Gear and the first Trauma Game.

Does the Wii U upscale and correct the aspect ratio to 4:3 with black borders on those Wii games or does the Wii U only upscale the game and the aspect ratio still has to changed to 4:3 on TV's that have the option to do so?

You still have to use 4:3 as Wii U does not correct aspect ratio on its own.

You are better off playing it on original Wii than on Wii U. With original Wii, you are letting the TV to do upscaling for you (which means some degree of upscaling filter will be applied).

On Wii U, no upsacling filter will be applied. Wii U mere stretches the video.

    i don't really like seeing C ports on host devices because in most cases i'm gonna need adapters to plug stuff in anyway

    usb-c is not quite standard on the host side most desktops only have 1 usb c port maybe none and on laptops it's really just the ultra slim ones where they use usb-c for everything normal sized laptops and gaming laptops still mostly use type A

    they're not very reliable and they lose connection easily or if you don't plug them in at just the right angle you only get 2.0 speeds

    Yeah, my 2018 Lenovo Legion laptop has one USB-C at the back, and one USB-A on each side (total two).

    Apparently, from what I read, Microsoft stuck with USB-A for Series. No C anywhere.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i want all my external drives to use usb c (because that 3.0 micro connector is awful) and i want anything i need to charge up to use usb-c so i don't need both a micro and c cable, i can just go with one, but for the host side, type A is still far more common so most cables that come with stuff
    are A to C
