    the only problem i have with the VC are the prices.

    Yes, some of u might call me cheap and such. But here in the UK its about 20 for 2000 points. Now NES and SNES games are about 600 or 800 pts each. So you can only get 2-3 games per 20

    So thats what? 6 or 7 for a game thats about 5-10 years old, maybe more, that u could grab on ebay possibly for about 2 and run on the NES i still have here.

    A bit of a depressing look to it i know but its still the truth. You're paying money for SNES games. I wouldnt mind if i could get like 5 or more games for the 20 card but 2-3 is pretty poor. And half of my points for mario from the N64? please

    Here's a good theory.

    480p.

    Are you using the component cables and "EDTV or HDTV"? The console will deinterlace the image and send it to the screen -- it will be essentially 480p.

    Component cables ALWAYS provide better color rendering than composite cables. Noone has ever seen N64 on component cables, until Wii!

    If you're using component cables, that could be a reason right off why N64 looks better!

    I've heard the VC games run in higher resolutions and that they're a bit darker.


    No GC controllers yet for me but I can say the menu reminds me of McDonalds

    edit: the download for me took like 20 seconds on my DSL router belkin
    then again its alot smaller than the N64 games (ALOT)
    It is supposed to be somewhat laggy, its emulation for gods sake. I was laggy on the NES, hence its laggy on the Wii.

    each games has flags for graphic resolution, draw distance, maximum objects rendered etc. This numbers are usually set by the manufacturer to what is just short of what the console can handle. All Nintendo would have to do is edit these settings in the ROM they play to EMU on the Wii, since they know the limitations of the Wii they can push the old game a littler harder, a little faster. Weither it be an extra bump of antialiasing, or further axis draws on distant objects.

    Think about it like a PC game only this way Nintendo locks in the settings and you cant adjust them. Unlike on a PC where you can set your resolution, anti-aliasing, buffering, texture mapping etc.

    All this happens from within the game, but I'm sure Nintendo has tinkered with the setting to get a big more from the Wii improved capabilities

    The cheapest place appears to be buying points via the wii itself - 21 for 3000 points (and 6.99 for 1000 points, so 3x1000 costs 20.97 if you want to save 3 pence


    I've downloaded Donkey Kong Country and, sadly, I'm not impressed - far too flickery. I'm sure it was smoother on the SNES - I'll have to dig mine out to check!

    Flickery? I'm waiting for it to be released here in the united states, I even got the points sitting on my Wii waiting for Donkey Kong Country.

    Can anyone else confirm this 'flickery?'
