A Question About Submitting Wii Longplays

Last updated on 2 years ago

As we know, some Wii games don't expand to widescreen because Nintendo didn't quite figure that out at the time. I have some questions about submitting longplays for the Wii.

1. What's the acceptable resolution in making longplays for widescreen games (i.e. Wii Sports) and at what size? 480p? 720p? Also I'd like to know about the non-widescreen games (i.e. Klonoa, MLB Power Pros)

2. Is it all right if I use the Wii U to record Wii longplays? Whoever recorded the New Play Control! Pikmin longplay mentioned in his description that he used his Wii U. If so, is it all right if I use HDMI? Also, what's the accepted resolution for this?

I have seen the accepted resolutions in another forum, but I've noticed that it's outdated, and I'm just asking for clarity. Thanks!

I think that can help you: https://www.longplays.eu/forum/viewth...ad_id=6935

I say only you might need a component cable for 480p.

Hi DiggerandIndy,

Wii Longplays should be submitted in 720x480, 480p if possible.

One of my friends used his WiiU to record a Wii Longplay namely Pikmin 1. He recorded it in 720p60fps.

Link to his Longplay on WoL and YT: https://www.longplays.eu/downloads.ph...ad_id=6473 https://youtu.be/CjsSaK7A_tg

When the new site hits soon hopefully we should be able to make new guides that are a little more updated.

So it's official: 720x480, preferrably 480p?
Frederikct112
Yes. Via component cable.
