    I don't like how i have to shut the system down when I want to go from playing a Gamecube game to a Wii game...I hope they have some sort of update where the "Home" button can be enabled on gamecube games.

    I haven't tried a GC game yet... Why can't you just enject the GC disc? It doesn't bring you to the Wii menu?

    yep, two different modes. gamecube and wii. the other cannot be accessed when in gamecube mode because it behaves EXACTLY like a gamecube.

    ya once you enter the gamecube game... you running pretty much a game cube.. the wii is closed down in the background... only way i found to get back was power down... they cant really put it in the pause menu cause its built into the gamecube game... but you would think by hitting home it would take you back... although i only played a gamecube game in there once... i will probably just play them in my gamecube

    I was also pretty bummed when I realized you couldn't use the Home button to exit Gamecube games. However, I did notice that if you eject the disc while you're in the GC game and hit the reset button, it will restart into the Wii system. I think this is easier than shutting all the way down.

    Also, if you don't eject the disc and hit restart, it just restarts the GC game. So yeah, once you start a GC game, the entire system starts acting like a GC.

    tones dude... Gamecube had some killer games... supersmash brothers melee,mariocart,bongo beat is cool in a group... any of the nintendo titles are a blast specially the sports games.. baseball,golf,etc.. as for 3rd party games most are about the same as any other game system.. but nintendo has always made awsome self title games.. go pick them up while there cheep... but make sure you have friends.. most nintendo games are made for a group... they pretty much own minigames,and multiplayer games... thats all they do for the most part...

    but dont forget the link,metroid, and a few other of there games.. i have found very few nintendo based games i didnt like or atleast play till the end...

    Probably not. The Wii clocks everything down to Gamecube speeds. Like someone says, the Wii essentially becomes a Gamecube, no emulation. Like dual personalities that can't see each other.

    you're right... each one wii nd GC run off a different system. Wii is Linux :D GC isn't... hopefully someones almost got that little nugget of Linux exploited for some fun homebrew :thumbsup:


    Either way... the linux system might be able to be streamlined in a way to make a faster or better switch. But really if your playin a GC game.. no big deal to switch witht he wii how it is already. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, that really blows.
    Hopefully they will update that because my friend brought over a gamecube game and it was annoying and just didn't seem innovative...
