    Change your... Refresh rate is it? from 60hz to 50hz... or what ever the lower one is... Or if its on the lower one, change it to the higher one.

    Most VC games won't work with a lower refresh rate.. well it will work, but just really slow!

    its best to call if you have access to a number because emails usually take 2-3 days

    also could it be that your wii was set to another region of the uk when you downloaded the game?

    Nah, has been set to right region since after i first turned it on so i dont think so..

    I was wondering if maybe the leads was faulty .. bleh i duno guessing in the dark here :p
    As i said it works with the standard leads you get in the Wii Box.

    Just downloaded another virtual console game Sonic the hedghog for the Mega drive and this game is working fine with my component leads attached..

    Maybe is the F-zero download is just bugged or something?
