    NSMB does not work on my Wii with a DriveKey installed. (The new protection makes the DriveKey obsolete!) I had to softmod my Wii just for this game

    I sent Drivekey an email asking about the update that comes with NSMB. I just received this reply:

    There is currently a problem with playing NSMB on all Wii consoles with modchips, it is safe to install the update but the game will stop playing after a certain amount of time. There is an update coming soon to solve this problem, it will require the Drive Key being updated via JTAG/programmer. We will release details on the programmer and any other information when more details are available.

    In the meantime check out the Guide to see if the information there is of help.

    I copy this from the Drivekey website.

    Posted on 26th November 2009
    We have fixed the NSMB issue in DriveKey. The updated firmware will be in all chips shipping from Monday 30th November. We will also be providing an update for existing DriveKey owners, which will be released as soon as the JTAG programmer is ready. In the near future we will also publish a standard for appending BCA data at the end of the ISO image, so that any new game with this new protection will work without any update of the chip. The actual game ISO will remain unmodified.

    That's really great news!! It would finally rule out the doubt about whether the DriveKey (WiiKey) team is behind their product.

    AFAIK their are even the first modchip manufacturer to release a fix for NSMB, so I guess a lot of the sceptical users will now again come to praise the DriveKey chip!! Perhaps even over the Wasabi DX. It will be interesting to see if the update will also enable the DriveKey chip to work on the D3/2 Wii drives.

    Just too bad the update won't be applied via disc.

    I cant really follow you. how did you get it to work with your drivekey? can you please be more explicit.

    I still dont understand how to get it run with the new drivekey, does anyone know how to include the BCA information into the ISO? where do I get the BCA information from and which programm does the job for me?
    thanks

    EDIT: for NSMB the BCA information is included in the drivekey update, so no modification of the iso needed. for any games in the future using bca protection, a modification of the iso is necessary.
