Online Success with Wiimmfii Server
« on: June 22, 2014, 02:41:25 AM »
So, I happened to notice that the wiimmfii server now lists ExciteBots as "Testing." 

Freddy and I were both able to download the patch that you can use with a game disc in about 5 minutes and I am happy to say we had immediate online success with our original profiles!  ;D

The Friend Room did not work, however.

It will be interesting to see if we can connect with other racers.  TopStar let us know if you want to test it out! :)

We were not able to figure out how to connect with the USB Loader and so we are using our glitchy game disc and wii - I am hoping that TopStar can figure that one out and provide us with detailed instructions like he did for the other server.

I am hoping that if we can connect with multiplayers on this server and everyone can use their original profiles that we can convince more people to mod their wiis and get this community back up and running (racing).

Thanks for the update, Xcitpup...

I'm officially logged in on the Wiimmfi server! I my 15K account is the 11th Profile registered and as of this post I'm the only one online. :P

Server activity info:

http://wiimmfi.de/stat (Go down to ExciteBots and you'll see how many unique profiles have been registered and how many are online)

P.S. I got a PM back on the 18th from one of the members over on the site discussing the Wiimmfi server regarding testing ExciteBots. I shared with him the progress you two had. Let me know when you two can get on and we'll see if we connect. :)

ExciteBots: Trick Racing has had a change of status to "Full Support" so Friend Rooms on Wiimmfi should be working now. XcitPup and FREDDY, we will have to test this sometime today to confirm it.

I'll go ahead and work on a guide for setting up Wiimmfi...which is a lot more simpler than Polaris.

This is good news for the people who may not have wanted to mod unless they had their original account.

FYI - as I said in the ShoutBox - If you did not previously register your Friend Code before the shutdown, my understanding is that it is not too late.  You can still do so at  http://wiimmfi.profeibe.at/.

However, I read on the Homebrew forum that they do not know how long it is going to work.  Right now they are still able to retrieve the profiles from the Gamespy servers.  Speculation is that they may not be able to after June 30th because that is when Gamespy is shutting down their EA servers as well.

So - long story short.  If you have not registered your FCs yet, do it soon! Even if you are not sure you are going to install the wiimmfi patch, you have nothing to lose by registering your FC just in case you decide to do so later.  :)
