Just fired my Wii up for the first time since April 7th. :o:blank:

 

Not sure I'll have time today...didn't know Andy Murray was playing today. He had his game yesterday, so thought it would've been off til tomorrow.

 

Ha, Murray.

I've bought the Umbrella Chronicles and played through a few levels yesterday. What makes it even more fun is that I'm using an attachment:

I used this for Dead Space: Extraction, too. Very fun. Anyway, this game is good, and graphically it seems quite decent considering its time.

 

Going through the scenarios from Zero makes me sad. Oh, Resi. How you've changed.

Couldn't get into Umbrella Chronicles at all.

 

Started playing through it myself, and then just completed it quickly in co-op with Eddage so I could sell it on.

Found it too slow and well... boring.

 

Extraction is by far the superior game IMO; it just has SO much more to it! Great story, unique gameplay (zero-gravity, puzzles, glow sticks etc...), and a fanastic mix of scares and action.

Extraction is brilliant, but there's something about this that is very likeable. I like the slow pace of it, as it mirrors the atmosphere and the nature of the earlier games.

Hey guys,

 

Just so everyone knows I'm unsticking this thread because it's not going to get a great deal of use anymore.

 

It'll still be here though so search for it if you need to.

 

Or feel free to create a new thread for a particular Wii related topic if you like.

 

Or if it relates use the Wii U Discussion.

And here I thought you had at least put the "Wii" on it yourself. ;)

So I was just playing some Okami (the last game in my Backlog for me to complete) and when I returned to the Wii menu, this message suddenly appeared:

WTF?! :wtf:

 

I clicked on No, at which point it said that all of my messages would be deleted if I continued. So I went back and clicked Yes. Now it's moving the "Old data" to the SD Card, but it's taking fucking ages!

Has been going for around 20 minutes already, but the progress bar is only at around 5%! :o

 

Did a quick Google search on this, only managed to find a couple of mentions of it. :blank:

 

Anyone else had this happen on their Wii?

 

*EDIT*

Oh man, still going... It's not even half way yet. :eek:

It's telling me not to remove the SD Card or power off the Wii console, but I'm bloody tempted to do just that. :heh:

This ended up taking 3 hours to complete! :o:zzz:

And everything seems the same as before. ::shrug: All my messages are still available, not sure if it's reading them off the SD card now though. :blank:

And although I can't remember exactly how many blocks were free on my SD card beforehand, I'm pretty sure it's taken a huge hit from this procedure. :hmm:

 

Very weird. :wtf:

Do remember hearing something about a message limit near the launch of the Wii, thought it just deleted older messages. Unless it's the play log data, maybe?

 

Did notice my fridge was down to 10 blocks so had to move a few things to my SD card. Hopefully the Wii U won't have the same limitations with VC/WiiWare titles in Wii mode(?).

That's what I'm thinking it was yeah, because it was fine before playing anything that day, it was only after a play log entry was created that the message appeared.

 

I said in my previous post that everything was the same after this happened, but I've since noticed that my Wii is actually running a bit better now than before. It would take longer to power up and occasionally hang a bit when starting games, but now it's all much quicker.

 

Shame this didn't happen sooner then, seeing as my Wii will be obsolete in just over a month anyway. :heh:

Oh? Shame you can't force it then since my Wii runs a bit slow as well. :laughing: :p

You could always e-mail your Wii hundreds of messages, or make loads of memos on the message board... that'd probably force it. :D

From what I'm reading online this YT App is for the Wii not the Wii U (yet)?

Yes, it's for the Wii (hence the Wii thread).

Just what I've been looking for for all these years!

What's it called and how do you get it?

I'm not sure what it is called, as it was a gift from the Mum years ago. Think she found it for a few quid somewhere.

Think this is the same one. Only downside is that there's no trigger, as that's how you access the nunchuk's C and Z buttons. But, otherwise, I've used it for Dead Space: Extraction and it worked a treat.
