    Wiikey Farce Continues

    Release candidate of update arrives to beta testers








    [​IMG]



    Release candidate 1 of the fabled Wiikey update has reached beta testers says the Wiikey Team. Months of broken promises and silence haunt the Wiikey team as strangely out of nowhere the team updates their website claiming the update to be almost upon us.





    Amazingly the Wiikey team claim that this time the update is now in the final phase of development, although they already made this same claim months ago. Dwindling patience for the long disputed update that fixes GameCube audiofix makes one wonder whether it will actually be released in the near future this time.

    Oh sure, a two month delay. Wah!. But when the Earthbound/Mother3/Starmen translation team string us along for 1.5 years, it's "Be patient, quit complaining, they have real jobs, etc." Last I heard the WiiKey team didn't get paid for updates and the chip is fundamantally working, so.... quit complaining.

    Probably because people have money invested in WiiKeys where they don't with Mother 3. WiiKey made money on chips by making the claim that updates would be out that did all these awesome things and still haven't come out with anything. It's suspicious you've got to admit. Mother 3 is fans working for free, who owe no one anything. Are all of your arguments this air-tight?

    Still loving the fact that they CONTINUE to claim that their chip has an audio fix.

    Hmmmm... Interesting.
    So you think that this will buy them another 2-5 months?

    I'm going to remain optimistic. The audiofix IS an issue but the chip isn't too shabby if you don't take that into account. I'm hoping this update does get released so people will quit complaining.

    I don't know or care. But popular lore considers a frogs ass water-tight.

    Probably they just said AudioFix because they thought it just simply works.

    If they add audiofix then I think a lot of us can stop complaining. It's an ADVERTISED feature that does not work.

    I have no idea if the update does anything else other than audiofix, anything else would be an extra.

    Let's just hope they release it.
    And: I hope the Dual Layer support they were talking about works aswell. Because I was looking forward to that.

    Pretty sure region free is as good as it gets, unless other chips do it better.

    Let us see. It's hard to believe, but maybe they're gonna finally release an update.

    That's a really bad comparison. People bought Wiikey, and as paying customers, they want upgrades when their product isn't working the way it should. I'm sick of people like you who like paying for products that don't work as advertised and complain when other people want a product that is working.

    I'm also thinking about modding my Wii with this chip.
    I've heard good reviews about it.
    But so apparantly the update support is not that good?
    What kind of problems does the chip now have?

    I would have to see a leaked beta test version of this before I believe it. The were at the testing stage months back. No beta had been released then. They then blamed the developers.
