    I'd like to hope this thread can still be active. Or just use the Game On threads linked in the first post.

    Speaking of which, Animal Crossing thread added to the first post. Hooray for revivals!

    Have you gone online with your DS at all in June/July? I do not mean in conjuction with the schedule. I mean taking your DS online at all....period. If you have, with what games?

    Okay, I think I finally got all of what I wanted up there now. New things in the OP are.....

    -Updated schedule, as usual. No changes. If you ever want to mix it up a little, just let me know. I doubt people are playing Contact on Fridays anymore, for example.

    -PA Wii Message Board Code and Friend Code Wiki Page

    -Wikipedia's List of Wii Wi-Fi Connection Games.

    -A separation of DS and Wii Game On threads. I'm also including Platformers threads as well.
    Super Mario Strikers Charged (And its EU counterpart. I don't know if this is still used.) Platformers Edition
    Pokemon Battle Revolution


    -Included the Platformers Pokemon League Board

    I think that's everything. I hope it's actually useful to you all.

    And while I have your attention, I've noticed something we haven't done at all during the time this was really being used, to what's going on right now with Pokemon and Mario Strikers. I'm talking about TOURNAMENTS! Are there enough of you out there for a tournament of perhaps Mario Kart DS? Or Tetris? Or even Clubhouse Games with its 8 player madness? Let's start talking about it and see if it's possible!

Also, I have a different DS from the one I used to play Animal Crossing on, I thought about booting it up recently, but I have no working friends now. You guys should come help me weed.

    My Wii code's in the wiki, if anyone adds me, please PM. I'll be on later with more codes (Need to put my sig back) later tonight.

    I have some good news and some bad news.

    Good news: The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector can now run on Vista! You just have to have the latest version of the drivers. That would be 1.06.

    Bad news: The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector has been discontinued! At least for now, it seems.

    All the info's here, including the 1.06 version, straight from Nintendo.

    Hey, are there enough games online for Wii to make a possible schedule for it?

    Don't think I'm trying to imply we abandon the DS completely. Not at all! We could have a Wii schedule and a DS schedule. It's good to have some choice. ;-)

    But would everyone even be interested in the idea? D:

    All I know is that I've noticed it's getting progressively harder to get a 4-player game of Mario Kart DS or anything at all with Tetris DS when going with "Worldwide". And I still only have two friends on Mario Strikers Charged (though I admit I haven't played it much lately, with school and all).

    When you take a look at the stats of what games get how many (non-unique) connections, it's somewhat easy to see why.

    So, how about it?

    .......

    I know, I know. Smash Bros. Brawl comes out in a couple of months and that's all anyone will be playing for the next 100 years. Fine. I get it. But why not have an alternative to Smash? What about the slim possibility that you just want to play something different from Smash for one day so you don't burn yourself out, and Spectator Mode just isn't cutting it anymore? What about THEN?

    (If you're the first to reply to this, please quote me so that it reaches the next page. Thanks.)

    Okay guys, I meant to do this on March 1st, but shit happens, so I'll have to do it now.

    It's pretty obvious this thread in its current form is dead.

    I haven't seen anything to show that we still use the schedule for months. I haven't seen any of the Game On threads come back to the first page to try to start up some online gaming. I haven't really seen the wiki we use get updated either. And with Smash Bros. Brawl being so close, I can't imagine any of that is going to change.

    So here's what I propose for this thread's future:

    1) We remake the schedule according to how everyone wants it. I've made three schedules pretty much by myself and while they worked for a few months, after that they just stopped working for whatever reason. Of course I did have some input to try improve it over time, but the initial concepts was pretty much me -- Just one person deciding how it's going to be for everyone else. I'm thinking that may have been the problem.

    This time, you guys tell me what you want this thread to be. I'm going to completely step back and let you have your say for what and how this thread can be improved. This thread is for everyone, so the decision-making should be given to everyone as well. That's just how I see it. When everyone's had their say, I'll try to fix this up to work in the way that everyone wants the thread to work.

    That's one solution. But there is another...

    2) We kill the schedule completely, and the thread remains as one giant hub for everything about NWC and NWC gaming that I can squeeze into the OP.

    Either way, I'm leaving this to everyone until March 31. If there's no real discussion going on between now and then, I'll just have to assume everyone wants solution #2.

    I'd go with making the thread a giant hub and getting rid of the schedule altogether. Schedules don't really work unless it's a new game, like a weekly Brawl or CoD4 night. I say just make this a general WFC thread and we can organize game-ons for specific games whenever we want.

    THREAD......RE-ACTIVATE!

    Okay, so the OP is finally updated with the following.

    - The schedule has been removed. We'll stick with the 8PM thing, but anyone seeking to start up some online gaming on any game should either announce that in this thread or the respective Game On thread. The latter probably makes more sense, but you can always get to this thread easily enough through my sig. So it's whatever is easier for you.

    - The OP now contains Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii. I doubt it's really necessary, even at this point, but at least they're there if you temporarily can't find it. :D

    - I'm not sure about the Pokemon thread. The original link is 125 pages long, but it's still open. Therefore I've just included what looks like the current thread in addition to the original, in case there are two separate threads and each serve different purposes.

    - The OP now also includes Worms: Open Warfare 2. Everyone with a DS and Wii at least owes it to them to try out the demo through the Nintendo Channel. Or you can stop wasting time and buy it right now as it's only $10 new on Gamestop.com.

    Hello everyone!

    Welcome to being two and a half weeks away from this thread being two and a half years old! :D

    I'm just letting everyone know that I've added something that should've been here quite a while ago. There's a DS section, and there's a Wii section....

    ...and now there's a WiiWare section! Yeah, it might not be much, but at least it'll be easier to organize something for Bomberman Blast and Dr. Mario Online RX. Maybe they'll even re-ignite your passions for blowing up everything from entire fields of people to the tiniest virii.

    I mean, look what happened the last time I tried doing something like that.

    Just a quick bump for two things.

    1) I've added links to Animal Crossing: City Folk, Call of Duty: World at War, and the general WiiWare thread.

    2) Does anyone have any requests for games that have threads that can be added to the lists? Also acceptable are games that haven't had their own thread yet, since I can just put it in red as an indicator that there's no thread for it. Example: Tetris Party for WiiWare.

    Can I get some help here?

    I'm having trouble connecting to people in animal crossing.

    I have linksys router and the nintendo wifi usb connector.

    I can connection test and update just fine, but if I try to go to someone elses town it just times out.

    I'm watching the packets increase in the network connection, and only 2-6 packets go thru every 3-4 seconds, which seems horrible to me.

    I downloaded the latest Nintedo drivers for the USB connector, and then downloaded the latest firmware for my router, and now the problem has actually gotten worse. I now don't even time out, now I only get a "cannot connect" error when in animal crossing. I can still get to the shop channel and everything just fine, just not animal crossing.

    This is frustrating the crap out of me. :(

    Sounds like it's just Animal Crossing. This came out very recently, right? Could be just "first day kinks" getting worked out.

    I'm calling nintendo tomorrow about it.

    someone else is having the same problems and isn't using the Wifi connector, just a wireless router.

    SHIT JUST GOT REAL!

    The most noticeable change:
    UPDATES AND UPGRADES

    We may without notifying you, download updates, patches, upgrades and similar software to your Wii Console and may disable unauthorized or illegal software placed on your Wii Console to ensure that your Wii Console is operating properly and efficiently, comply with applicable laws, assist law enforcement, protect us and our customers, or prevent the use and distribution of software obtained through improper channels.

    I understand this is most likely because of the Homebrew Channel, but this concerns me greatly with regards to the part of the agreement that already existed in regards to everything we buy on the Wii Shop Channel.

    Nintendo's EULA
    Article 12: Expiration and Termination of Agreement

    * You may cancel your Wii Shop Account by contacting our customer-service department or by following the instructions in the Wii Shop. If your Wii Shop Account is canceled or terminated for any reason, you will no longer be able to use the Wii Shop. You will lose all downloaded Content and forfeit any rights to any unused Points, which become our property.

    * You may terminate this agreement by removing Content from your Wii Console, discontinuing use of the Wii Network Service, and forfeiting any rights to Points in your Wii Shop Account, which become our property.

    * We may terminate this agreement, or any portion thereof, at any time, for any reason whatsoever. Such termination will void any licenses granted in accordance with this agreement and may prevent your use of the Wii Network Service.

    So now they really can just take away everything we downloadably bought while we sleep whenever they felt like it. Maybe they could before, but this really hammers the point to everyone.

    Now I wonder what happens to the channels we've kept on an SD card. If the above scenario were to happen, and if we were to try to put them back on the Wii's main memory, would we be denied?

    That is incredibly lame. I guess it just means the first thing I do the next time I turn on my Wii is set the WiFi to a config that doesn't work. Maybe later I'll configure my router to deny access to Nintendo's update servers.

    Hello everyone! Just a post to let you all know there's an actual Updates section now. Instead of just being perpetually about the USB Connector's drivers for Vista, I've added the stuff below. Recent updates will be in orange on the OP. Here's the updates I made:
    November 19, 2008: Virtual Console Secret Santa 2008 is now underway.
    November 19, 2008: Random information about the Nintendo Wi-Fi Network Adapter. (Currently only for Japan)

    Yup! Virtual Console Secret Santa time! (Hopefully WiiWare too.)

    Just a little update saying that I've edited in the new Animal Crossing City Folk thread.

    Can someone please link me to the current Pokemon Diamond/Pearl thread so I can put that in the OP? I'm blind or something.

    There's no list of PA players, so I don't know how useful the thread would be.

    Hey everyone! :)

    I just thought of something else that would be cool to add to the OP! :D

    It's really only useful to those who own both a Wii and DS, though. :|

    You probably won't even care. :(

    But I could be wrong. :P

    Demos on the DS Download Service from the Wii's Nintendo Channel

    I'll add a list toward the bottom of the OP and update whenever I can. So now you can just check here instead of having to fire up the Wii just to find out.

    "But why would I do this now?" you ask?

    Because MOT---FU
    TRACKMANIA DS is one of the demos this week!

    There's only three tracks, nothing of the create-your-own-track, and if you don't touch the game for a minute or two it automatically resets to the title screen. It seems pretty cool. I can see why some people would say the steering is a bit sensitive, but most of the time it seems perfect for the speed and tracks this demo shows.

    A = gas, B= brake, X/Y = restart the track, L/R = nothing, D-Pad = steering, Select = view change.

    It just sucks on the few times I've had the top of a loop stop me dead. :x

    Edit: It sucks even more when the demo locks up loading the next track! Wow!
