    Any ideas why these are so far behind? Has there been a problem with the numbering or something? [​IMG]

    Really strange yeah. I suppose Wiiware = Failure because if no one on GBATEMP is interested it probably won't interest anybody.

    I'm a big Wiiware fan by the way.

    Releases for VC/WiiWare are odd in that they are somewhat tied to the console they were purchased on. When a ticket is generated for you, it is unique to other tickets unless you tamper with it to use fakesigning. I don't have any official sources or anything, but it could be the lack of exact dumping methods that makes release groups dislike releasing these types of files.

    They are defo still being "scene" released. For example:

    1330 Yomi.Kiku.Asobi.JPN.WiiWare.Wii-OneUp

    1740 Punch.Out.PAL.REPACK.PROPER.VC.Wii-OneUp

    Well I posted around a shit ton of the last VC titles but some bug keeps fucking up with the ordering (Wii #0375 - Uridium (Europe) for example). Ok so I just trashed the ones that did that but then it kept doing it constantly.

    I complained to the powers that be but no one seemed to care so I lost interest.

    Best stick to the other release sites for that info.

    I'm with you guys, I want the WiiWare up to date so we can discuss them. There has been some great WiiWare titles since, Poles Big Adventure, Swords & Soldiers & recently Icarian.

    If I get some spare time I might give the WW ones another shot VC I'm done with though.
