    I read on two German forums that Sonic doesn't work on Wiikey. Did you test it?

    I read here that the guy cannot get Sonic to run (he doesn't specify which region), but he might also have a bad iso. Don't know...

    Here is another one: He cannot get SSX Blur to work.

    They probably need to set the console at 60hz mode?

    SSX blur doesn't work on pal consoles at the moment? As far as I know no one with a PAL console can play that NTSC release yet.

    In this thread one user claims SSX Blur works on his Wiikey. And in the same thread another user says it doesn't work [​IMG]

    Whom to believe?

    that review sold me!!

    now i have little soldering experience. since the quick solder points do not perfectly line up, should i just attempt wires?

    xiaNaix and I messed around with a variety of titles on his ntsc wii. we had no issues running anything that we threw into it including ennichi no tatsujin (jp), ssx blur (us), super fruitfall (uk) or warioware: smooth moves (us) (other people with wiinja and cyclowiz chips have reported experiencing DREs on ww:sm when the title screen movie looped for the 2nd time).

    Nice CD choice [​IMG] R.I.P. Mitch! Damn, never got to see one of your live shows [​IMG]

    Great review; it backs up that I made the right choice choosing a 1st-gen chip. Now it can't get here soon enough!!

    SSX Blur and Sonic & The Secret Rings run absolutely fine here. I've heard that you need to make sure your Wii is fully updated to run some of those newer games, though.

    When I find something that DOESN'T work, I'll let you know. [​IMG]

    There, now the WiiKey can be read about @ GBAtemp Wiki [​IMG] Be sure to alter any incorrect information.

    What kind of media did you use? Does any vanilla flavoured media work with this WiiKey?
