Switch 2 spring 2023 then?

That actually might not be so far off. The original rumors were that Nintendo was planning it in 2020/2021 but switched to an earlier idea of a Switch OLED due to the chip shortage. nVidia currently has excess future order of 5nm wafers thanks to the crypto crash that they can't cancel which means like with the Tegra X1 chip, they might offer Nintendo a deal they can't refuse to start mass producing the Switch Pro's chip soon.

I fully expect Nintendo to not allow this virus on their systems. This is such a dumb idea.

Day 3 has started. 

What is everyones favorite Resident Evil character?  For me i would have to say Jill  I always play as her in ReMake(GCN version of Resident Evil) and she is a great character.  Especially in the new remake of 3.

The presidents daughter, she had nice ballistics.

OK good information, thank you!  So it's sort of tied to an account AND a system.  So if you pay into the expanded online you get it for all switches if they have your primary account, but other accounts on the SAME system would not (unless you get the expanded family plan).

So basically I can buy it for $25 for a single Nintendo switch.

No, each Nintendo Account has one console set as a primary console the first time they log into the eshop. Any other nintendo account on that primary console can access that Account's downloads/DLC/nintendo online.

Well perhaps downloads and DLC, but Nintendo online is definitely restricted to specific accounts on the switch.  Any other Nintendo account can NOT access Nintendo online even if the primary console account has an active subscription.  From what I can tell, Nintendo online access is tied specifically to an account with no regards to this primary console concept.

Oh you're right. I was thinking of downloading Famicom/Super Famicom games from another Japanese account and playing it with a NSO account.

I have a LAN adapter (and portable docks with built-in LAN adapters) but my switch is in handheld mode 99.9% of the time. I would love external drive support though as I passed 512GB used on my SD card recently.

Question... If I have multiple accounts on my switch, and I purchase the DLC with the primary account... do ALL the other accounts get to access the extra tracks too?

Yeah but if they are primary accounts on other switches, it won't carry over to the other systems. Some people have been screwed by having their save data locked out by playing games with dlc (botw) on another switch (family's) and moving back to their own.

Happened to my sister. When she lived with us we shared a Switch and she played a ton of BotW. We got her a Switch and BotW + Animal Crossing for her Birthday and she moved out that same month and ended up unable to play until she talked to me and I showed her the issue and she had to buy the DLC

Nintendo should remove the gotcha elements and port it to the switch.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: Wii U External USB Storage Devices
« on: March 24, 2022, 04:36:41 AM »
I know its not the thread for it, but does anyone have a wired connection on their Wii U with an Ethernet to USB cable converter?

Anything that uses the ASIX AX88772 chip-set works on the Wii and Wii U (and the Switch). Nintendo's official one is $32, my Pluggable's adapter is $16 but the cable is shorter by half.

What might be the cheapest and most cost-effective solution these days for some extra Wii U storage?

The cheapest option is definitely picking up any USB 3.x/2.0 to SATA adapter/enclosure for under $10/$20 and using any drive you have lying around from an old computer/laptop. Compatibility wise, I can't find anyone ever running into (non-powering) issues unlike the Wii where large SD cards are hit and miss.

I feel like I remember Pokepal mentioning they used a lower power-drawing SSD in an enclosure with a single USB cable, but could be mistaken.

I have gotten away with an old 2.5" 1TB internal HDD (rated for 5V 700mA) that's attached to my Wii with an USB adapter that comes with an optional power adapter that didn't even need to be used. If it can handle spinning up, you should be fine as that's the point it draws the most power. To be safe, I would go to settings menu -> data management -> hold d-pad down for a second and press + & - to disable auto drive sleep just in case it fails to spin up mid game if anyone wants to try it.

You could also go for a thumb drive or even an SD card in a USB hub, but back in the day people often said those aren't designed to constantly read/write data back and forth, so using them for gaming would kill them quite fast. Maybe by now those storage mediums have become more durable?

Name brand SD cards (C10/U1 and above) are fine as they are made for use in professional video/drone/peep/dash/security cameras that are being written and rewritten all the time.  Thumb drives on the other hand are made with the cheapest parts possible that die all the time. I've murder dozens of them just by testing the speed with a large file copy or CrystalDiskMark. Name brand ones manage to last a year or two but also die. Their design use case is infrequent transport of files or using it as a boot disk, not as daily drivers. There were and still are a ton of reports of people killing flash drives just by loading Wii games off them, and the Wii U is even worse.

So, something I've realized since early last year when diving into XCX was that I could definitely use an external HDD for my Wii U.
Keep in mind if you're using the XCX faster-loading data packs, they work more efficiently from the internal storage than an HDD.

I've heard the opposite. Comparison of the USB vs NAND loading often comes down to IOPs/latency where SSDs > NAND > 7200rpm HDDs > 5400rpm HDDs > BD drive. The data rate of everything on the Wii U is in the same ball park. The Wii U's hard drive is limited to USB2 speeds of 60MB/s (30-40MB/s after overhead), the onboard eMMC NAND is theoretically 52MB/s but the actual memory used is somewhere around 25-35MB/s mark. The SD card is capped at 25MB/s (same as the Wii) and even the Blu-ray disk drive is 22.5MB/s (way better than the Wii's 8MB/s).

Now, you may be wondering, isn't the Vigilante dead as well? Usually when a player hits the bomber then both are eliminated. That is usually the case but it isn't for this game and you'd think with all that I typed in the rules that I would have made this more clear. The rules for the bomber were focused on the effect they have by being voted out and eliminating all those who vote for the bomber as well as bomb rocks. However, in this game, the bomber was included with all the other non-Mafia roles when I assigned out pellet values and even damage effects. In fact, the bomber had a damage effect assigned to them. It makes no sense to do that if a Mafia member targeted the bomber for a hit. They have to hope that the circumnavigate the damage effect just to get blown up anyways and then still don't get the pellet value assigned to that player? The only role that mentioned being blown up with the Bomber was the Killer role. The Killer would go down with the Bomber making that role the Killer's Achilles Heel as it were. However, the Vigilante role did not have that restriction or warning if they hit the Bomber. So, just like the Mafia could successfully hit the bomber and survive, the townie Vigilante could also get that same privilege. Since the Bomber is not on the townie side, the Vigilante stays a Vigilante and is not changed to a Killer role. Hope that's clear and makes sense to you all.

This is grade A bull and I demand his head.

Mario Strikers is my favorite Mario Sports game. However, I didn’t see Daisy in the trailer. No Daisy, no buy. Sorry. Them’s the rules.

I guess the game is also for good boys and girls as well. She's in.



They look like they're about to play football rather than soccer
