Revision as of 21:18, 23 January 2012

The Wii Menu is the top-level menu interface of the Wii game console. It has four pages, each with a 4-by-3 grid, and each displaying the current time and date. Available applications, known as "channels", are displayed and can be navigated using the pointer capability of the Wii Remote. The grid is customizable; users can move channels (except for the Disc Channel) amongst the menu's 47 customizable slots.

Wii Channels Global Problems

The problems listed below may/will occur with any channel that you test on Dolphin:

Unknown Pointer

Any channel launched from the Wii System Menu will display the following error, if the "Use Panic Handlers" option is checked in Dolphin's configuration: "Unknown pointer 0xffffffff Continue?". Choosing Yes will cause Dolphin to continue normally, choosing No will crash the emulator. The same issue occurs if you go back to the Wii System Menu by pressing the Home button, selecting "Wii Menu" and selecting "Yes" to the "Return to Wii Menu?" dialog. If the "Use Panic Handlers" option isn't checked, the answer to this error will always be Yes.
