Cheap points to download all those classic games! Can't ever remember seeing a post for these and thought it was a hot price. Can't see it cheaper anywhere, Let me know what you think!

also enter FREEDEL at checkout for free delivery. With a possible 7% Quidco it might even be as little as 11.19!

Emulation using the Twilight Princess hack is really coming on - my advice, wait for some real emulators! Can't wait till they get Goldeneye running on my little white box :)
#2
Not bad - can be bought for £11.91 after Quidco from BlahDVD, but I suppose you get Quidco from Tesco too. :)

Was only looking for Wii Points last night.

Top price, I was going to just buy from Nintendo for £7 per 1000, as it worked out about 5p more compared to the other deals on here.

Spot on.

This is my first post here, I went through and bought three with the Freedel code, they came down to £11.11 each, and after Quidco its £10.25 per 2000 points. Absolute bargain
#7
nice one. Will help soften the blow of the extremly overpriced VC games and the forthcoming Wiiware games.

Just discovered an oddity when using the "FREEDEL" code; I added one 2000 points card, went to checkout and applied the FREEDEL code, then decided that I may as well get a couple more cards at that price and went to the basket to add two more cards. On returning to the checkout I got the following;

3 x Wii Points Card £35.91
Delivery charge £2.34
Subtotal £38.25
Savings:
eCoupon - Free Delivery. Enter Code Freedel at Checkout. - £4.92

total paid £33.33

so at this stage it appears that I've got the points cards for £11.11 each rather than £11.97.

What's the twilight princess hack?

There's a bug in twilight princess that allows unsigned code to be run from an SD card.
So far I believe you can get a bad version of tetris running but the theory is it will allow people to write their own software to run on the wii.

There's a buffer overflow bug in Zelda: Twilight Princess, which can be triggered by altering a save file for the game. Basically, in-game you can rename your horse (maximum of 8 characters if I recall rightly), and the new name gets saved along with the rest of the saved game data. The routines that load the data back in from the save file don't check to see how long the name of the horse is, and just dump whatever the save file has for that name straight into memory, overwriting the part of the game that is already there should the horse name be unexpectedly longer than normal. So if the save file is altered so that the horse name contains extra data - specifically executable code - and it's correctly positioned so that at some point the game will jump to that new code, then the Wii can be made to run something else under the impression that it's still part of the Zelda code.

It's actually fairly common in consoles for game loading routines to be written with the assumption that the only thing that can create save game files is the game itself, so there's no point checking the save file for bad data. The most obvious example of this is the orginal XBox where at least three games had this kind of error (MechAssault, Splinter Cell and 007: Agent Under Fire) and with specially crafted save files could be made to run extra code; in combination with bugs in the font handling of the XBox dashboard this allowed XBoxes to be softmodded to run any homebrew code.

They allow you to buy "Virtual games" for your Wii console. Virtual games are downloaded onto your Wii console in exchange for points.

They are old games from NES, SNES, Mega drive etc.

NES are 500 Points
Turbo Grafx 16 are 600 Points
SNES are 800 Points
Mega Drive are 800 Points
NEOGEO are 900 Points
N64 are 1000 Points

Also coming soon are C64 games, but at 500 Points are double what they should be. Also Master System are going to be 600 Points.

I have over 20 games already and will get many more, VC is a great idea.
#25
Not bad, certainly the best deal going. I bought some BUT....

Still think we get ripped off though it's certainly a lot closer to what the Yanks pay.
£14.99 (RRP) = 75p/100 points
£13.99 (buy online) = 70p/100 points
£11.97 (this deal) = 59p/100 points.

USA RRP is 51p/100 points. God knows what they actually pay when they get offers like these

59p/100 points isn't bad compared to RRP, but when you think you're paying nearly a fiver for a Mega Drive or SNES game when you could potentially buy the cartridge on fleabay for that, and have something to sell when you get bored with it, it says a lot about the 'value' of Wii Points. As much as I love the idea, they're grossly overpriced. £2-3 max is a fair price for a SNES VC game ffs.

#26
am i the only person who has issues playing VC games on an HDTV? Whenever I try to play the original super mario game that I downloaded with my Wii points, my TV just blanks and says 'Unsupported'...

Great deal tho!

yeah but think about it - the cost of retro consoles is on the up - and this way you can buy just those games you really want to keep forever, and no need to have 5 or 6 consoles taking up space. plu smany of the carts cost more than £3 each anyway, especially mario titles.

i have a SNES and a Mega Drive up in my spare room, but i dont really bother with them now i have this. If only Mario Kart came up for the VC id be sorted.

Have you looked at the Nintendo website?

these sort of questions are answered there.

I'm pretty sure this was fixed with an update. Go into the Wii Shop, choose the option to show what games you've already downloaded (Account Activity, I think - funny how you can't remember what the buttons are unless you're actually doing it!) and you'll see "Updated" next to any VC games or channels that have been updated. You can then re-download (free) to get the new version. Updates to VC games aren't often publicised so it's worth checking your list of downloaded games every so often to make sure that you aren't running an old version. Save games should not be affected.

Also, if you have a component cable you may find that some games are not compatible with the 480p settings, so you need to change the display settings to PAL-60 or PAL-50 in some cases.

Great deal

how much memory do u need per game?

if u dont have a memory card in ur wii - just the standard one - how many games can u put on there?
#34
A memory card is really required, as you can save these games directly to the Wii internal memory

EDIT -- oops, I meant "A memory card is NOT really required". Sorry

I don't know how many games the Wii console can save, it works on "blocks" I believe.
I think that the Wii has 512mb of internal memory.

I use an SD card so that I can transfer photo's and MP3's on to the Wii.

An extra memory card doesn't add additional space to store runnable VC games; you can move games to the card but you can't run them until you move them back into the Wii again, so it's only really useful for storing games that you aren't currently playing.

The Wii has 512MB of internal memory, which is 2163 "blocks". From a bit of googling, NES games are around 20 blocks, SNES games around 30-60, Megadrive games around the same, TurboGrafx around 30, and Nintendo 64 between 100-300 blocks. The various additional channels vary in size, and of course save games take up a small number of blocks as well. If you only bought Nintendo 64 games you could probably have somewhere between 7 and 20 games depending on individual sizes, but something like 40 or 50 SNES or NES games.

I have ordered 3 of these from Tesco and in the e-mail and online account it says £33.33 to be charged to the card. However, looking online at my bank account it shows that the full £38.25 has been debited.

Is this normally how the orders from Tesco online work?
#38
What the hell are WII points?
#39
Thanks for posting, great find!

Btw is it true you can only play VC games with the Wii 'classic' controller and NOT a gamecube controller?

Thanks to anyone that can help with that.
