    Hello and as you can see by my title Wiimmfi is making me wait another week even though I already waited a week for console activation. After the week everything went completely fine. I was able to play online normally. Then about 2 days later I see the error code that says "console Succesfully registered wait 7 days for activation" then the error code of just waiting 7 days. The 7 day activation thing is only supposed to happen ounce so why is it making me wait again?

    Are you playing on Dolphin or on a Wii?

    Dolphin does that to me as well. Apparently your MAC changes randomly when using Dolphin and that causes activation to reset. I asked a Wiimmfi mod and they said this. I've been playing on Dolphin for quite a while and it's only happened once to me

    Ok.. so a mod said that it will only happen ounce.. so this won't happen again ounce the second week is over? Just in case is there any way to stop your mac address from changing?

    No, they said it happens using dolphin. They didn't give a set number of times it'll happen, but from my personal experience, it only happened once

    alright then, I just hope it doesn't happen again for me because I really do not want to wait a third week.
    I think wiimm should just get rid of the week wait thing because hasn't mr.bean made an extremely good anti cheat system for wiimmfi already?

    yeah if it does, try and get in contact with them

    yes thats true. it's more like a double layer of security to prevent people from hacking. first the 7 day activation, then the anti cheat and ban

    Hey havn't spoken to you in a while. I managed to get in contact with wiimm after a huge argument with some other people telling me to hack my wii. Wiimm was not exactly friendly. He thought I was trolling and warned me or told me he was gonna ban me so now I had to tell wiimmfi that I wasn't trolling and maybe there was a misunderstanding or something Idk

    Honestly I'm not surprised. I got banned during a legit livestream once for no reason. I had it all recorded and sent the proof to Wiimm. He read the message but never responded.

    As much as you don't like hacking, it may be your only choice at this point :/
