    So I just ordered a wiikey because it's cheap and I don't really care about GC backups because I didn't mod my gamecube and i have the original games. But now that I started reading stuff some people were acting like it messes up original copies too, if that is so this sucks.

    Can someone clear this up for me,
    Thanks

    The same problem that affects the backups(lack of audio fix) affects original copes too. So yes, let me agree with you in saying it sucks. I have a lot of originals affected by the problem... [​IMG]

    Yeah, there's no disabling the WiiKey when it's in. You would have to take it out completely. Also, you could always just end up sticking with the WiiKey as it appears that the update is VERY near, and this update will fix that whole problem altogether.

    yea, but i've been here since the beginning and there is always the possibility that it isn't going to come out. though it does look like it will this time.

    yes, only a small percent of gamecube games are affected, mainy the 3rd party ones, a few first party ones.

    @TheStump can you tell me which harvest moon is affected as there is 3 titles that are on the gamecube, i have Harvest Moon Another Wonderful Life (for girls) and that boots and plays fine. star fox adventures is messed up big time, there is no voices in cutscnes or it's either garbed.

    hopefully if this wiikey update is true it will fix the audio fix problem for good.
