    From Wiinewz.com:

    Found the out via the Eurasia site, I know it's in the SMG hack topic but I believe it deserves its own topic especially regarding the new coders information.

    No attacks here, just asking...

    Do you have sources close to the Wiikey team, or did you just compile what you read from surfing forums ?

    I wouldn't be surprised if xiaNaix was the new coder.

    You and me both. It's the not knowing that's annoying. If i knew it would be out in 10 days time that would be fine, but as it is i will spend the next 10 days continously checking for an update with hope turning to dissapointment each time.

    The thing that matters is that they finally explained why the last update took so long. I think it's promising that they finally learned how to communicate with their customers. It's really promising that they have the D2Ckey team on it. It sounds like they take this dead serious now, so I really hope people have a little confidence in the Wiikey team again.
    So please everybody stop whining and have a little patience with them.

    Okay you're right on that one. But still I think it's good of them to at least report "something". We can all argue about whether it's true or not, but that's something we simply don't know now. I believe they are working hard on it. If you don't, fine, but then stop bitching and get yourself a new modchip.
    We have experienced the bad customer support from the Wiikey team in the past, we complained and moaned, now give it a rest until they proved themselves wrong. The forum seems surrounded with bad vibes because of this constant Wiikey bashing...and it goes on and on and on and on and on...while the wiikey team probably won't ever read it. So it's just pointless!

    Well I only see what I read, so I know nothing more than you. But they have reported that the D2Ckey team is working hard on it. Off course all the Wiikey haters don't believe a word they're saying, obviously because they have build up a bad reputation. But I for one really believe they're working hard on it, because, as you can see, SMG is the game everybody wants to play, and if they cannot make it work, they lose all their credibility.
    So it's not a case of keeping the customers satisfied for them, it's a case of "Do I want to keep on making shedloads of money with my modchip".
    It's a bit like the Supercard team in a way. They messed up a couple of times, but eventually they delivered.
    I believe it can be a tough job figuring out a new protection scheme, but I would even bet money on it that they will soon release the "essential" update.

    Now that you have an answer, most people can STFU. Im tired of people bitching about an unplayable EARLY release. Be thankful you can even play modded games. And Its not like SMG is the only good game for the Wii. Go play Zack and Wiki for a little bit.


    Not lashing I was just tired of complaints.

    Gamesphere, I couldn't agree more. Yesterday I played some Ghost Squad and it's one of the most fun games I've played in a long time. It's pure simple arcade shooting fun.

    this is fantastic news. It seems they tied up all the loose ends and Wiinewz also explained why Team Cyclops was so damn quick.
