    Ok am I the only one pissed right now about the Wiikey team and their lies that gave us poor consumers false hope?

    I should've just bought Cyclowiz or something like that. I got a NTSC-U wii and i got the Wiikey because it made my wii able to play NTSC-J wii games. But as shown so did the Cyclowiz that never promised any updates with their update just a few weeks after the Wiikey came out.

    Now you'd think the Wiikey should be able to do the other things it promises without demise but noooo. All gamecube games doesnt work as the should and what about the gamecube games being regionfree when installing the chip :/ Lies! [​IMG]

    Anybody seen/read anything that might indicate an actual update coming or should i just switch to a open software chip?

    Thanks for your time through my rantings.

    When I bought my WiiKey a few months back, I didn't think they would ever be able to issue an update (despite their claims). I didn't look much into the implementation of the chip, but from gut feeling the chip is only connected to the "check if disc is valid" signals, and isn't connected to the system's memory at all. And with no way to communicate with the chip, it'd be mighty hard to change it. Is there even any flash memory on the board?

    Now I'm glad I decided to stick with my homemade Wiinja V2 which has the Audiofix, instead of buying the Wiikey.
    I dont really care about the wiinja v2 not being region free, when it only takes seconds to patch the iso.

    I agree, so far so good. When Big N releases some games that don't work with the Wiikey then I'll have something to complain about. Until then I am 100% happy with the wiikey.

    What about the audiofix and handful of gamecube games that don't work? It doesn't affect me and I couldn't care less. If the wiikey team ever releases an update (doubtful at this point) it still won't affect me. WHO CARES? Yeah, granted, it's not right to advertise a function on your chip that doesn't work, but that doesn't stop it from being a great chip.

    So anyway OP, go buy a new chip if you want. It doesn't matter to me how you choose to waste your time/money.

    It plays all the wii games for you region. It also plays some games from other regions. Until a wii game doesn't work, we can't really complain. Being able to play gamecube games is a bonus. Though I don't like being told lies when things are going to be released, just to sell more.

    I got lucky and started shopping for a mod just when it started looking grim that the wiikey update wasn't gonna happen. I'm reeeeally happy with the wiinja deluxe.

    Smart man. Wiinja deluxe, Wiip, or Wiifree are the way to go.
