Could use a standard encoding to submit japanese text for game names (useful as frequently people will romanise incorrectly and confuse the f*ck out of anyone who knows the actual game title) - Suggested UTF8 --Norgus 11 November 2008

The article could use a mention of how to add and format new entries to prevent confusion... Also, what to do if a game only works in a certain Hook Type? --Sara-chan 21:31, 25 October 2008 (CEST)

Please if you can, put your new game entries in alphabetical order to make things cleaner and more organized. Cr08 06:47, 28 October 2008 (CET)
It doesn't matter what order you put the games in - clicking the icon next to "Game Name" will sort alphabetically. Same for the other columns. If a game only works under a certain Hook-Type then mention it in the notes column.
While it is true that you can manually put them in alphabetical order by clicking the button, games should still be added in their correct place alphabetically to start off with. It only takes a couple seconds to make sure you are putting it in the correct place and it keeps the article neat as it should be. Kiwisoup 05:51, 6 February 2009 (CET)

I just tested Lego: Indiana Jones, WiiMusic, MySims, Deca Sports, and Samba de Amigo. All 1:1 NTSC-USA ISOs. They all worked. The opening video on MySims was a little choppy and I'm not sure if the create-a-character mode is quite up to full speed but it plays great!

Do we still need to use backup-creator.exe?

No, if you read the official FAQs you would know that games are actually MORE compatible if they are not patched/decrypted...any version of 0.3 plays 1:1 backups as is. Kiwisoup 09:25, 17 November 2008 (CET)

Article Name

with the imminent release of 0.3 gamma, should this article be made into 0.3 beta and then a new 0.3 gamma wiki be made? or should it all just be in here? -- 23:03, 10 November 2008 (CET)

I think the same thing should be done as what was done when v0.3 came out on the original compatibility matrix...people made notes on the old matrix when they were using 0.3, and it kept the original name. There was also another matrix just for 0.3 made, this one. I DON'T think it should be renamed, that would add confusion and make it seem like all the comments are from people using the gamma loader when MOST of them actually aren't Kiwisoup 09:32, 16 November 2008 (CET)

Rayman Raving Rabbids TV ...problem ?

it said in the report the it works . well it worked on my wii but there are lines on top and bottom of the tv and if you drag the hand to the bottom or top , you can see it on either side and everytime i click something , it flashes black screen . is it just mine or ...what ? pls solve the problem ( if it's just the back up ) because i got this from my friend's legal copy. also , when i try to turn it off , it seems to freeze and i have to turn it off by unplug the power cord.

Works great on mine, none of those problems mentioned. sony dvd-r burned at 4x with imgburn.. Although I am in a test of which is a better burning program, Nero or Imgburn.. So far its nero.

Yes / No under 1:1

If both Yes and No are listed under 1:1, what exactly does that mean? I was looking at Cooking Mama 2 for my friend, and that was displayed... so does that mean I have to patch or no. Ph15h

If both are listed that means both will work, but if it isn't patched already I wouldn't patch it, because you don't have to and games are usually more compatible if they are 1:1. Not to mention they won't load in the Disc Channel. Kiwisoup 09:04, 5 December 2008 (CET)

Editing Backup Launcher v3

What is Editing Backup Launcher v3? It looks like a copy of this page - which is more accurate? Should they be merged?--Pelago 15:12, 5 January 2009 (CET)

This is the only official compatibility page. I don't know what that page is but all the info looks like it's outdated information copied from here. Probably someone's failed attempt at making their own list. Hence the page title. Just ignore it. I added a redirect so anybody going there would be taken here instead anyways.

Adding a game not on list

I was wondering if we had to make sure the game works in every mode available and on every level possible to make sure it works correctly? I have a few that this list says work but at some point into the game it will freeze and such. I am wondering if people dont test these thoroughly?

Chances are it is your media, how you burn it, a bad download, older backup loader, etc. Random freezing is usually a sign of cheap/incorrect media. Do not create duplicate entries if it is already verified to be working. Kiwisoup 05:43, 6 February 2009 (CET)
I havent made ANY entries at all... I have some games that are not on the list that work so far but I am not going to post them till I KNOW they work completely. verbatim dvd-r burning at 8x with nero because imgburn sux..
It would be silly to play through every feature and beat every game and load it in every way possible. If you get the game to work and you can play a level or two with no problems, you can put that it works. If at a later time you or someone else finds that the game has problems, then it can be changed. However if the game has been verified by a lot of people and you are having problems, I would just leave it be, because clearly nobody else is having problems with the game but you. Also, please sign your posts. Kiwisoup 20:58, 11 February 2009 (CET)

Reference to a download

I think this page needs information on where to download the backup launcher -- 11:50, 10 August 2009 (CEST)
