I've owned a WiiKey2 for a bit now, and I've decided to post here about the problems I'm facing. I do not know if my Wiikey2 is up to date (v 1.2 on wiikey2 website), but my Wii is 4.2U. My brother updated the wii few days ago without thinking about the modchip. Anyway, the 4.2U update is not causing more issues so far. As far as I've read, the only problem with the 4.2U is that I'll loose the region free thing. That I don't care. I only use NTSC. FYI, I burn all the discs at 2X and they are DVD+R.
I've read that Mario Galaxy was a very hard game to play with chips. I'm having issues with it. Sometimes, it will load, sometimes it won't. When I click on the game in the Wii Channels page, the game is detected as Mario Galaxy. It launches but before reaching the Mario Galaxy's menu, there's a disc error. When it does it, I put my genuine Wii Fit disc, load the game, play a bit, go back to Mario Galaxy and most of the time, it works now. Is this a known issue ?
as for the new Super Mario Bros, I'm having a lot of trouble playing it. I can easily play 5 to 10min with it, but then it crashes and pops me a Disc error. I have to reset the wii, come back in the game, play a bit and then it crashes again. I know that the new NSMB has a new kind of protection, but is my wiikey2 having troubles with it ?
I've been playing Metroid Prime without issues. It really is SMG and NSMB that are pain to work.
I do not have Homebrew installed. Only the wiikey2 !
Any ideas ?
