Mario Kart Wii problem

Postby GodSquirrel » Sat Apr 26, 2008 10:51 pm

Got it at the midnight launch tonight... it seems that after a few races it locks up completely on my mom's wii. screen goes black, remote won't even turn off the wii at this point. i haven't gotten a chance to test it on my wii yet, but i will when i head by my place tomorrow. she has a far newer wii than i do however.

anyone else get this locking problem?

Checked the disc for defects?

disc is fine, checked it pretty closely to make sure, worked great on my Wii as well... no other Wii games give my Mom's Wii trouble either

If the game works fine on yours, I would guess its a problem her Wii is having. Not sure what that may be, so thats about all I can think of.

only thing i can think of is mine was patched last with Smash Bros, and hers was actually patched with Mario Kart Wii. Didn't require an update to play mario kart, but Nintendo does like to release games with patches intended to make mod chips not work (no neither of these Wiis are modded). maybe there was a slight different in the patch between the two

Those Wii wireless controllers use the same frequency as cell phones and other remote-control devices! A cordless mouse or keyboard may also use the same frequency. But they all have to comply with emission restrictions, and acceptance of "possible" interference from other similar devices.
While specific coding methods are used by different types, possible a code byte could get into the data stream of another device.

If the same graphics level and activity as other games, yet the others don't lock up the system, possible there is another program remnant that is not fully erased?

sorry to take so long to update, but it was indeed a firmware problem.. i updated to a new one released within a day or two and it works perfectly now, on both my wii and my mom's..

Good to hear. All those tiny nitpicking problems never come to light, until the product is in consumer hands.. then some new updates become miracle cures!

yes, unfortunately there are some problems no amount of beta tests will fix
