I forgot I ordered that

I can use my SNES controller on my Wii now. It’s the older Wii with gamecube ports.

Obviously that picture wasn’t taken with a cellphone.

RetroArch is available on the Wii too

You have to search Google to find it. Wiibrew’s site doesn’t list it on the emulators page. There is just a SNES emulator too. But I like RetroArch. It works nicely on the 3DS.

Does the Retrode 2 work on the Wii?

I could search Google and find out. I think it basically shows up as a drive, so in theory, if the emulator supports USB drives, then it should work. Yes I could copy all the games to the external drive plugged into the Wii. But playing from the cartridge is more fun, especially on a Wii. If it works, I need to buy a SNES to Wii adapter. I could use my Gamecube controller, and I probably will. Until I want the original controller. Oh wait a second, the Retrode 2 has ports for controllers. That part may or may not work on the Wii though.

I’ll find out when/if the Retrode 2 comes.

The original Wii is the best Nintendo console, it’s super easy to hack. The Wii U is kind of good, since you can hack it now too. But it’s not worth 300 bucks. I’d pay $150-$200 for a new one.

If they drop the Wii U price, I’ll buy one. Assuming it’s 200 bucks or less for a new one. They could release one with a non screen controller.

200 bucks for a refurbished original Wii?

That’s a rip off. Buy a used one at GameStop for 60 bucks. I thought it might be the Wii U, but it isn’t. Also, not compatible with Gamecube games, the Wii I have is.

Nintendo should of kept making Wii games

They shouldn’t of made the Wii U. I’d be buying Wii games if they still made them. The NX might be another failure, it might be a tablet, that has a dock for TV playing. I probably won’t buy it. Unless I see it in stock and have the money. I’ll sell it on eBay.

Wii Fit U w/Wii Balance Board accessory and Fit Meter – Wii U

According to a answer on a question, the balance board in that package works with the original Wii too. It only costs 25 bucks on Amazon.

I may or may not buy it. Maybe after I get a refund from the giveaway.

The game and the Fit Meter won’t work for me. But I don’t care about either.

The cheapest buy it now on eBay is 16 bucks, and that’s for a used one. The used ones sell for as much as 30 bucks on eBay, possibly more. Can I sell the balance board in that bundle for 50 bucks? Buy a bunch and make some money.

No, I can’t sleep. Not even when staying up past 3 am, and waking up at 10 am.

The Wii is fast too

I played Pikmin 2. Accidentally killed a bunch of them, by going in water. Having the sensorbar under the TV sucks, you have to hold your arm up for it to work. Which hurts your arms, if they are weak. Graphics look good enough to me. If they still released new games for it, I wouldn’t need anything else. Games load fast from a USB hard drive. I have almost nothing on the home screen, the default stuff, then the Homebrew channel, and the USB loader channel.

Might be time to play my Wii

Haven’t played it for months. The only quest to do on The Elder Scrolls Online, is the main story, that might be to hard. Leveling up without quests will take a long time. Playing with my Wii might be more enjoyable.

Think I’ll assume the games on my Seagate drive are corrupted

The power went out while I was playing a game, so I’ll assume that caused corruption on my external drive for my Wii. Going to plug it into desktop and re copy everything. Then eventually I’ll see if it still freezes.

Might not be the problem. Mario Sports Mix still says the md5sum is wrong, and now it says Punch Out is wrong too.

Update
I was right, Mario Sports Mix works now.

And Punch Out is stuck on loading now. I’ll try deleting the save file.

Formatting the drive, and will re copy everything.

Good thing it’s almost payday. I’ll be buying another UPS and a surge protector. The UPS will be for my desktop, and my old one will be for the Wii and PS4. I plug my UPSes into a surge protector, the only thing plugged into the surge protector is the UPS. Except for the one for my desktop, one hard drive is plugged into the surge protector too.

And according to Wii Backup Manager, the md5sum is still wrong for Punch Out.

Either my drive isn’t compatible, or it’s damaged from the power outage. I did drop it while it was plugged into my desktop too. I did do a test on the drive using Seagate Dashboard, said it was fine. Punch Out was working, then I tried doing exhibition and it never started. Just kept scrolling through the stats of the person I selected.

Should probably wipe the drive and send it back to Amazon if I can. Just burn discs instead.

My USB 3.0 on my desktop could be incompatible with the drive, so everything I copy is corrupted. I’ll try re copying everything from USB 2.0. Got to love USB 3.0.

Could also be my USB 3.0 hub. Should probably replace the hub and the PCI Express USB 3.0 card.

Punch Out has a good md5sum now. Got to love my computer’s USB 3.0. The built in didn’t work with linux, never tried it with Windows, stuff would disconnect. I’ve always had problems with USB 3.0.

Update
Looks like copying by USB 2.0 to the drive fixed it. I have a new USB 3.0 card coming, maybe it’ll work correctly with it. When I get it, I’ll copy a game, and verify it to see if it’s corrupted or not. Could just be the USB 3.0 of the drive, but it’s not the first USB 3.0 thing that has been corrupted. I have a Lexar USB 3.0 flash drive, and it doesn’t work very well with my USB 3.0.
