    Question Possible Options after May 20th for Wii Online gaming?

    Seeing how there is still a significant online community for the Wii and the fact that the Wii should be viewed and supported as a "timeless" console,

    I was wondering if it would even be possible to somehow write code or a connectivity app for Homebrew that would allow peer to peer connection or

    gamer maintained servers. Especially for the COD series. I still play Wii Call of Duty all the time, even though I have the Wii U and a nice PC rig...

    Nothing touches the fun and feel of the game/Wiimote even with the sub-par graphics, I still keep coming back and so many others feel the same way!



    Can it be done?

    I doubt they can pull that off (Especially zTwist). Would be cool though. Maybe y'all can team up to come up with something.


    It sucks to see Nintendo Wifi Connection shutting down. It will be missed greatly.

    It is unfortunate to see wii games shutting down in the next couple months, if you are looking for a wiiu game to peak your interest i suggest monster hunter tri, which has a 4 player co op where you go onto missions ect... it was very fun on the wii until capcom shutdown the servers. A lot of people end up spending a bunch of time on it. Anyways it probably is possible but i doubt anyone around here would get it done anytime soon. Fatal says he is working on it but never posts progress or proof of anything really.

    May 20th will only affect games that use Wii FC function, games that have dedicated servers and do not use the WFC servers (such as CoD) will not be affected.

    Should probably learn what you're reading before looking like a fool.

    Xlink Kia is kinda what you're thinking about, but it's not for Wii. Because of the Wii's FC shit, it makes it a struggle to create dedicated servers such as Xlink Kia. You wont see anything like that for the Wii any time soon.

    Your point? I still don't play any of this so it doesn't affect me. I tried helping, apparently my help is too good for you faggots.

    Enjoy your paper weights guys!
