Updating wii menu
By pressing the plus and minus buttons on the Wii Remote users can scroll across accessing empty slots.The Disc Channel allows users to play Wii and Game Cube titles from supported Nintendo optical discs inserted into the console.This allows users without an internet connection to still receive system updates.When loaded into the disc slot, an icon on the Disc Channel that says "Wii System Update" appears.In certain games like Wii Sports, Wii Play, Wii Fit, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Party, Wii Fit Plus, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Party 8, My Pokémon Ranch, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Strikers Charged, and Guitar Hero 5, each player's Mii will serve as the character he/she controls in some/all forms of gameplay.Miis can interact with other Wii users by showing up on their Wii consoles through the Wii Connect24 feature or by talking with other Miis created by Wii owners all over the world. Early-created Miis as well as those encountered in Mii Parades may show up as spectators in some games.After selecting the channel, the Wii will automatically update.If these updates are not installed, the game will remain unplayable until the update is installed, as each time the channel is loaded with the game inserted, the update prompt will appear, and declining the update will return the player to the Wii Menu instead of starting the game.
JPEG files can be up to 8192x8192 resolution and in baseline format.
The feature was described as part of a "profile" system that contains the Mii and other pertinent player information.
This application was officially unveiled by Nintendo in September 2006.
If no disc is inserted, the message "Please insert a disc." will be displayed along with images of a template Wii and Game Cube disc (Except for the Wii mini or the Wii U, where only the Wii disc is shown due to lack of Game Cube support).
The "Start" button will also remain deactivated until a playable disc is inserted.
