Wii Virtual Console
« on: November 26, 2006, 05:37:02 pm »
I was wondering if anyone was having problems with the Virtual Console Games on the Wii?

I have Sonic and it seems to lock up all the time.  It just freezeds and I have to reset it.  It has happened af few times on the Nintnedo games too.

Anyone have this problem?  I am curious to try the Turbo-16 games.

Thanks!





Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

You should probably post this on Nintendo's technical forum.

I've been looking forward to playing Super Mario RPG on the SNES since I was about 15, but it never came out in PAL territories. With the Virtual Console I was all set to download and play through it at long last, but I just found out that games aren't coming out in regions that they haven't previously come out in! So previously NTSC-only games will stay NTSC-only. I'll never get to play Super Mario RPG! Stupid Europe.

**cough**rom**cough**

I dont normally recommend it, but think of it this way: You tried everything possible to try to get the game by conventional means, if you could've bought it you would've so nintendo loses absolutely no money from your having it because without the rom you never would've played it.
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

Hmm, I don't think so. I wouldn't know where to start going about that (not a request, just a fact), I have plenty of other games to be getting on with and I'm not a fan of the whole roms scene. I shall accept my fate. Sigh.

They'd still have to do the PAL conversion, I suppose, and it's not worth it.

Well they'd have to make the 60Hz NTSC res. game work with the 50Hz PAL standard and they'd have to translate the game into French, German etc. I guess they don't want to push the boat out for games that only a few might care about. I don't know if the Wii emulation software would make the game work, but even if it could there's still the language thing.

I dont care about the language (I'm sure some might) In anycase here in australia many tvs now run in PAL 60 games like obvlivion on 360 require a PAL 60 tv to be played. Paper Mario 1000 year door has the option to choose 50 or 60. I'll assume NTSC 60 and PAL 60 are similar. Just port the american version over its the very least they could do. if anyone tries to tell me Chrono trigger would be limited interest you got another thing coming everyone I know has wanted that game. The only reason I'm interested in the virtual console is so i can play those RPGs that were never released here in Australia.

No problems thus far from my end. I have Sonic, Zelda, and Bonk, and have thus far played all of them unscathed. Yeah, this is definitely something I'd call Nintendo's Customer Service on and see if they have any suggestions.

So how is Bonk?  Is it just as good as it was on the Turbo-16?  Can you use the classic controller with it? 

I see they also have Ecco the Dolphin and Golden Axe too!

Bonk is very good for an old-school platformer, and yes, it plays the exact same as the original for the TG16. Which isn't surprising since Nintendo is priding itself on the Virtual Console with 'perfect ports.' Best of all, the TG16 games can all be played using the Wiimote alone. Just turn it sideways into NES-style and you can easily play any of them.

I'd wait till Ecco 2 to grab one of them. Never much cared for the first Ecco, but the 2nd was great. Golden Axe is fun so long as you have another person to play with.

I got given i ton of Wii points for xmas so I been getting stuck into the VC. I got Mario 64 this morning and am enjoying it using a Gamcube controller it all works real nice. I also got DKC for the SNES this is where I had a problem as the buttons are in different places it is very awkward to play ont he GC controller. back ont he SNES if you think of the buttons as North South East and West then the B uttoner for jumping is south and Y for running and roll attacks is West. However ont he GC controller B is West and Y is north. and it is very hard to push B and Y together it is a terible postion I assume ont he Calssic controller the configoration is much similar to the SNES controller. But witht he GC I wish they could have mapped the button so they in the same place not on the same labled buttons. At the very least some how aloud the option to switch between the way they have it and other way.

Anyone know if they ever plan on releasing the AFL game from the NES days on to the VC that AFL game on the VC will sell units it has to be like the 1st game i ever saw that had voice. Also not to mention they didn't have the rights to the team but seeing you can't copyright the name of cityies and suburbs all the teams were there. You then select a team jersay from the colour palette me and my friend were discussing this game the other day I so want this on the VC I'll play it for days. Everyone in australia will download this game. if only for the nostoglia of the umpire saying "out of bounds, on the full".

Still waiting on Zelda LttP on the VC in Australia the day i thought it would have been out we got Mario Kart 64, good great title but when you are wanting LttP its a let down. Still Super Mario Bros from the NES takes up most of my Wii time that game is still addicting.

Holy crap! What happened?

I hop onto the Wii Shop, and I find Kirby's Adventure, Kid Icarus, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, and Super Mario World!

And now I hear Ocarina of Time is coming on Monday!

How did I miss all of this? :D

Miss all this DKC was on the VC from Launch I think at least it was in Australia. SMW has been out for weeks thought you have missed so much.

Is the internet channel really worth the 5 bucks? Or is it just an interesting gimmick?

It was until June, I think.

Now it's 500 points, however.

von:

It depends on if you'd really use it. Of course, you're not going to be using it as your default browser when you go onto the internet. However, I've gotten a lot of use out of it by showing family/friends videos on YouTube. It's much easier and more comfortable to be able to sit on the couch watching various YouTube videos on the TV then to be huddled around a computer.

if you got it when it was free i think you can still have it and not pay a cent which I did then again I can't get my Wii back online yet. Still for youtube videos on your Tv it is plenty fun.

Probotector II (Super C) Co-op has kicked Mario Kart into the gutter at the moment, I'm considering Contra III when Nintendo Europe finally put some more Wii Points Cards up on the Stars Catalogue
