    I recently rented Incredibles Rise of the Underminer for Gamecube after getting a Wii for Christmas, and I put it in, and then both my Wii controlers shut of when it gets to the starting menu. Both are fully charged, so they didn't run out of batteries. I have seen a classic Wii controler and think maybe that I need that...???

    You need a gamecube controller in order to play gamecube games. The classic controller does not work for gamecube games.

    and to do a search you need a keyboard, which you apparently have...
    or you could use "eyes" and read your owners manual...

    And if you want to save, you need Gamecube memory cartridges. You can't save Gamecube stuff to the Wii's internal memory.

    Luckily I don't care about using my Wii for anything Gamecube-related, because it'd be a royal pain in the arse.

    Ahh, sarcasm is appreciated and encouraged from everyone but me. :lol:

    Although no doubt if Swendon had been female with some sexy avatar photo of herself, the hoards would have come to defend her and things would've gone quite badly for smyth. ;)

    Not talking about you, Ace... no worries. ;)

    Thanks. I'll be sure to hit you back later.







    Haha you're probably right, i'm willing to take my chances though :lol: And in my opinion, a stupid question is a stupid question no matter who is asking it. I don't mind reading weird, seemingly simple questions but this same one has been answered in a multitude of different threads and could have easily been answered by reading the manual or going to nintendo.com to find it in the tech section. It's just silly, i'm lazy but not that lazy. :lol:

    THANK YOU!!!!

    I propose that instead of ever helping someone with a question like this, active members shall from now on point the person into the direction of the answer without just telling them the answer like you did. Beautifully done.
    It gets ridiculous because (unless s/he was joking) s/he obviously didn't read any of the previous posts. So from now on, we will help n00bs when there question's answer is not so obviously found in the owners manual or by a simple search. Who is with me?


    i now have a headache from this thread. Thanks Prestige.

    You are stupid


    Agreed besides if we ever want jobs at Nintendo Customer Service we should probably learn where everything is in the Help and Faq sections anyways... lol

    Needing the controller is understandable, but needing the memory card to save is a kick in the teeth. I guess it's all for the best though, 512mb can fill up pretty quickly.

    So you've noticed I've been in IT support for a very long time. ;)

    Actually, I spoiled him. Normally I'd go a step further and not provide any links, and be like "go to the search box at ______.com, type ________ then look a few matches down for your answer" to drill the point home even better.

    it seems like everyone on this site with a thread count of 50+ is becoming nintendo tech support :lol:
    sounds like a plan to me.
    honestly if these questions weren't asked time and time again it wouldn't be that bad. And as for the disc being too small... that was just a stupid question.

    when you stop asking questions that your owners manual answers i'll stop being mean.

    and in fairness i had a lot more to say about the other poster's utterly stupid question than i did about yours.

    remove game case from plastic packaging
    open game case
    remove game from game case
    insert game into game slot with picture facing opposite of power button
    turn console on

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Sadly, i wouldn't be surprised if one day we see this question from someone who is seriously asking... it's sad

    thanks for a laugh though :D
