Does any Wiikey 2 firmware have a working GC streaming audio fix?
A couple of months ago I installed a Wiikey 2 inside my D2C2 Wii. Wii backups work, but Gamecube backups which use audio streaming do not. The Wiikey 2 has been updated to the latest v1.3 'Odyssey' firmware.
The Wiikey 2 is advertised as having a working GC audio fix, and there is an option to enable it in the firmware menu, but the audio fix doesn't actually work. Audio streaming games either crash when booting or crash when gameplay starts. From what I understand, there is at least one version the original Wiikey (1) firmware which does have a working GC audio fix (Firmware 1.9b). This suggests that the Wiikey team is capable of properly implementing GC streaming audio support.
Gamecube games which do not work with Wiikey 2 include:
- 1080° Avalanche
- Eternal Darkness
- Legend of Zelda: Collectors Disk
- Pikmin 2
- Star Fox Adventures
- Wave Race: Bluestorm
Is there any version of the Wiikey 2 firmware which can play backup GC games with streaming audio, or is the Wiikey 2 audio fix simply not functioning as claimed? If not, then Wiikey has misrepresented their product's capabilities. Wiikey was recently contacted and seemed unaware that the Wiikey 2 GC audio fix did not work.
If there is a Wiikey 2 firmware with a properly working GC audio fix then downgrading to that firmware would be worthwhile for me as presently the modchip is really only useful for playing Gamecube backups. Wii games work fine using a USB loader, bypassing the need for the Wiikey.
Thanks to anyone who can help!
