A Mii (ミー Mī) is a digital avatar used in the Nintendo Wii gaming console. They allow users to capture a likeness (or a caricature) of themselves and others. After creating one using the Wii's Mii Channel, they can be used as characters in Mii-oriented games such as Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit, Wii Fit Plus, Wii Play, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Mario Kart Wii and other titles.

Wii consoles can store up to 100 Miis, up to 10 of which can be favorites. The Wii Remote itself can hold up to 10 Miis on its internal memory, which can later be transferred to another Wii console. However, they can only be edited on the console on which they were created. In addition, Miis can also be exchanged via the WiiConnect24 service, whereby allowing a player's Miis to "mingle" will enable such Miis to appear on other people's Wii consoles.

Emulation Information

Template:Problems/DSConnection The Channel requires connection to the Nintendo DS game Jam with the Band to function.

Problems

Transfer Miis

Transferring Miis works only with real Wii Remotes. The read/write will vary depending of the bluetooth adapter and stack used, varying between 5 sec to 1 minute sometimes.

Configuration

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0-201 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-2410 @ 2.3GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M If I turn off Audio Throttle, the background music speeds up. Turning it on resumes normal speed. It runs 60FPS most of the time, with 1 Mii. Doubled-revolutions
3.0-204 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2670QM @ 2.2GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M Runs at full speed at 1600x900 and 3x Native. Minor graphical glitch where the textures on the Mii's face disappear briefly whenever the Mii blinks. Existing Miis may become faceless when the channel loads, but fixes itself when you go to Create a new Mii or Edit an Existing one.
3.0-438 Windows 7 AMD Athlon II X3 450 @ 3.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6670 Full speed. Faces disappearing when Clearing Code Cache. Error when trying to read WiiMote memory. Playable Faefdsedf
4.0 Windows 7 AMD Athlon X4 750K AMD Radeon HD 7770 Some functions won't work, Stable 60FPS Zcair
4.0.2 Windows 8 Intel Core i5-4200u AMD Radeon HD 8670M Some functions won't work, Stable 60FPS Zcair
4.0-1349 Windows 8 AMD FX 6300 @ 4.3GHz AMD Radeon HD 6450 Stable 60FPS. Some details glitch in random. Wii Remote read/write does not work, it just hangs. Sometimes it shows random Mii's. Faefdsedf
4.0-5752 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 Works perfectly, but when you "choose a lookalike" after a few levels of customizing all the choices but one are the same. LotadTheGreat
