Going through my photos for updating the Rankings and came across these back-to-back races. Had to do a double take because I almost thought they were the same race. :o

If you'd just gotten a 449 twice or a 445 twice those would have been cool pics.  ;)

And yeah, consistently screwing up.  :P   With that room that should have been a base...  :(

I'll be working on a guide to share with everyone on how to set your Wii up to connect. All I can say now is...change that banner! 8)

I'll change the banner later tonight, and thanks for working on the guide.  Should help get more people back in the game...

As long as you make the guide I can make the video if it is needed. A lot of this techy talk can be hard to understand. I'm getting the files needed right now and will set everything up on the Wii later.

If you're making a video, Flash, do you have a screen recorder - like CamStudio (or better)?  Something to do a whole walk through?

Between No Good and I, I think we've done a good job at clarifying the process but a video is always welcome. I might make one myself but in the mean time I'm just going to link the guide on my YouTube channel (you should do the same) so outsiders can learn how to connect online. We won't be able to restore online to it's former glory but the more people we can get to activate their Wii to enable online play, the better.

I don't have a screen recorder, and after going through NoGood's and Top's instructions, it wasn't all that hard anyway. If we do still end up needing a video then I can probably work something out.

If you need one, there are quite a few freebies out there.  Just Google "free screen recorder" and pick the one you like...

Won't work for the TV unless you have the TV routed back through a capture system to the computer like I used to have.  There are different options for recording the TV, though.  I guess if nothing else there's always a camcorder on a tripod as a last resort...

We used to do that on Fridays only it was called Fwal (Fridays with a Lobsters) recorded by BTC (Battle Tanx Commander) Only that stopped around last year. I think the videos are on Twitch or on Youtube.
I just love Friday's with a lobster+Excitebots Trick Racing

I understand the first two, but why this?
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

Probrably we could revive it, weekly matches and create a group on popular game sites.
