Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii I have a Wii and have downloaded the old super mario and several others. I purchased a game card for the Wii hoping that it would save my place in the mario games but it does not.  I have to start from the very beginning every time I play.  Can you tell me how or if I can save the world I am in with some type of card, etc. so that I don't have to start over every time. Thank you for your help,   Renee

Re: Wii

Your in luck! My son had the same problem!Even though there is no possible way to save your place on the wii game card if you press the home button on the wii controller well in the middle of the game and then press main menu the game will be paused and when you return to your game you will be in the exact location.

We had the same issue this morning. you have to upgrade the Wii system menu. Look in the front page of the Super Mario Bros instruction bulletin and it tells you to do this. You have to be connected to the internet through your Wii though to do this, but our is now working. The download takes a few minutes but all is good. Hope this helps.

Just select the System Update option in Wii System Settings - just make sure your Wii is connected to the internet.

I had a simaler problem with my Wii. Solution: save data to SD card (or a card that goes with X-Box 360) and get a new X-Box 360. The thing with my Wii happens in the following cases: When I enter the observatory in Super Mario Galaxy, when I use the elevator to Flipside First Floor in Super Paper Mario, when I go through the living room in Elebits, and when I transform into a wolf in Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The beep buzz thing happens in Super Mario Galaxy and Twilight Princess, and slows down in Elebits. The game freezes in Super Paper Mario, but the music keeps going. Trie getting a new X-Box 360. When I got a new Wii, the problem was fixed! Also, there is a rare glitch that only some Wiis have. The glitch was gone when I got a new Wii. The glitch is: In Super Mario Galaxy, when Bowser tries to stomp you, he sometimes escapes the planet's gravity and flies into space. You can watch, and then restart.

Here is why Wii wants you to upgarde,

Wii wants you to upgarde since last ver. can not be hacked. So Wii makes people to upgarde by using the games, so that the more you upgarde the harder it is to hack the Wii. If Wii can be hacked, you can play copied games, you can go to blockbuter get a game, copy the game in computer and make copies at of it, so that you dont have to buy the game. And your wii is able to read the copied games

Now lets start with your problem,

Well now it will be even harder to downgrade the frimware of you Wii. (Wii doesnt want you to downgarde). Try to upragde it again if that doent work then upgarde it from the Wii's web page at

There can be a problem in you Wii's upgardeded frimware.

Two Player game for Old Super Mario Brothers?

Yup! We had the same problem and the sync button trick posted above worked. Thank you. We found that you first need to select mario brothers, then press the sinc button inside the flap on the consol (red button) then press the sync button inside the battery cover of the second remote.
