If one of the games your trying to play is Metroid Other M, the wiikey fusion will play at 3x disc speed or roughly 3 MB/s which is too slow for the game to run and blacks out after the standard nintendo controller messages and warnings. Some games that have lots of pre-loading and 3x doesn't cut it. Until the wiikey fixes it to run at 6 MB/s or 6x, some games will just crap out.
We will probably need to compile a list of games that crap out, aka black screen and/or controller shuts off.
List it like this so it is easily identifible:
Example would look like this:Code:Game: Wii FW and region: wiikey FW #: Description:
Game: Metroid Other M
Wii FW and region: 4.2U
wiikey FW #: 1.4
Description: Blacks out after the first standard wii controller screen. Controller still is active but nothing seems to be happening even after waiting for 10 minutes.
I will make a new post to just list clean games that black out. Hopefully someone at wiikey.cn is reading it and effectively bring about a fix.
It always sucks to download something only to find it is modified to not work with a certain setup. Most 1:1 dumps and scrubbed games work fine.
Sorry if I can't tell you if the MP3 pal version works or not, I got 2 wiis and they have 4.2U or 4.3U installed.
Have you tried putting the game alone on the SD card?
I also found out that when I put too many games on my SD card, it won't work, even though there is enough space. Maybe it needs space to "breathe", or something...
And another thing: It would be a good idea for the people of wiikey fusion to make up a list of the brands of SD cards that work with the wiikey fusion. I mean if I had known that not all brands work, I would have saved a lot of time trying to solve my problem.
By the way the support at their site SUCKS BIG TIME!
I send them an e-mail asking for help two weeks ago and they haven't bothered answering yet.
Of course I solved my problem coming to you guys, but they don't know that. It's THEIR responsibility.
Their product turned out to be great but their support is a mess.
I don't know if there is an ongoing thread here about brands and specifications of SD cards, but it would be a good idea to start one.
For example the following worked for me: Wiikey Fusion 1.4 - Wii 4.3E - Transcend 8 GB Class 10.
Thats a new limitation to note about what SD cards to use with the wiikey fusion.
I'll probably have to go back and see if some of the games I got that don't work properly will work on a 8GB by itself.
The upper limit might be more to the number of games instead of the size. There isn't a noticable scrolling if you excede the display limit in the fusion menu and the wiikey config option is always the last in the list.
I absolutely agree with the above. Those are extremely useful information and they would save everybody a lot of time. Such information should normally be given by the Wiikey officials, after performing a few tests, but since they don't bother, it's up to the users to gather this information. I would be happy to help in such an effort.
Added two more games to the 16 GB card which makes a total of four. Game sizes are:
Total: 11.23 GB
Free on card: 3.78 GB
All games play fine! It seems the 16 GB is not that useless after all...
