  • JoomX: Still just a sat connection, TJ.  Never going to be anything better in this area.  Over 1,000ms ping time, would totally suck trying to play online.  For EB, I'd try it though... ;)

  • JoomX: For now, TJ.  I keep thinking it's kind of useless now with EB gone, but keep hoping a new EB or something similar will come along.  If not, I'm sure sometime we'll have to call it a day...  :(

Fancy wiimmfi races, anyone?
« on: March 11, 2015, 03:34:55 AM »
Hi I'm Lawproto,
I discovered this game just recently and now that I have found it's still possible to play it online (with wiimmfi), I wouldn't mind having some races! :)

Hello there LawProto! It's great to hear that you've found this amazing game. Unfortunately most of the ExciteBots vets of this board aren't into the whole Homebrewing the Wii to gain access to Wiimmfi so while playing online is still possible, hardly anyone here does it. I managed to get on Wiimmfi way back when it was starting to work for ExciteBots but haven't touched it since. I'll go ahead and look into how things have changed and whether this guide is still 100% accurate....last I visited Friend room races weren't working but everything else was.

That's too bad, because you're the only Excitebots community I know of :( (let alone the fact I couldn't compete much with vets as I am right now :P ).
On the wiimmfi site "full support" can be read for Excitebots, so I guess any friend race issue has been solved, but anyway I could still be happy with the "race with anyone" option if only I could find random people hanging around (which appearently I can't)... :(
Thanks for your interest, I still hope for some guy passing by to give me a positive response, I have nothing to lose after all! ;)
If you wanna check if wiimmfi is working, well you know where you can find me (timezone utc+01 here, if that matters). ;)

Best wishes,
Lawproto

@DarkDog, I realise I missed a great opportunity not discovering this game while network was still alive.  :(
Now not many people know about wiimmfi, and appearently among those who do the majority can't use it because they have no modded wii...
I'm kinda sad, I feel somewhat like the last of the Mohicans...

This game is one of a kind. I got the game right when it came out, and it never really left

my mind. I made a LOT of friends on this game. This site was a lot more fun 2-3 years

ago. It was so busy, I would have pages of news for me to read. But now it's kind of, I

guess dead.  :'( But these memories are awesome. Thank god for nostalgia  :P

Hey Lawproto, I'd be willing to play Excitebots with you (though I haven't been able to beat anyone else without luck). And thanks for your efforts on keeping the site alive! I don't know if I count as a VETERAN though... I've always been kinda nubby at the game... but I love it! I got wiimmfi patcher and patched EBTR, and waited for 10 mins to see if ANYONE could have been online. I first found EBTR when my aunt and uncle asked my friend and me to come over to their new (by new I mean new at that time) video game arcade which I didn't know about to take pictures for flyers and posters and whatnot. They said, "All you have to do is sit here and play this game", and of course, that was Excitebots. So I got Excitebots within a month after that. The arcade, Powersurge, went out of business the day after my birthday last year (it was a good thing I WENT there for my birthday :P), so EBTR is kind of a reminder of those days. So I progressed my skills in EB and ONE DAY, I got a message on YouTube from TopStar. First, I wondered "how the fiddlesticks this guy found me", then I was like "sure, why not join TGC?". Then I played for awhile, my Wii broke, checked in once in a while, fixed my Wii after a good year (maybe 2?), then decided to check back here, and was pretty sad to see that the servers were abandoned. I really think that it was too early to abandon Wii servers.
Well, herere's my friend code if we ever get to play!:

My Wii's started dying about the time the servers went down (a couple long before that), so after the servers went down I didn't play for quite a while.

Finally decided to build one good one out of the bunch, and started playing EB offline once in a while just for old time's sake.  It's still fun, but it always makes me miss the good times online with everybody.  And, I pretty well suck now.

I'm still hoping somebody comes up with a better way to set up a server, but I might have to end up looking at modding a Wii.  It wouldn't be the same without the old crew, but it would still be fun...
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing... ;)
