Unban requests

Unban requests are generally ignored! Banns are called by the Wiimmfi moderators. And if I start to unban then I undercut the authority of the moderators.

A ban problem.

Hey Wiimm. I have a small problem about playing online on Mario Kart Wii (CTGP). And for you to fully understand this problem, I guess I have to start from the beginning.

So, a few years ago I was using cheat codes online on Mario Kart Wii (not anymore though, I swear about that) and came across a VR/BR Modifier code. As the lazy guy I am, I tried to use it to get 9999 VR online (it didn't work, but that's just because I suck at stuff like that, so there's no point in talking about it). Then I also thought, "Hmm, I don't really like Battle mode so much so I think I'll just set my BR to 0, as a joke.", and so I did.

And then something happened.

The BR got stuck at 0 even after I turned off the cheat codes. The VR was totally fine, it reset itself, but the BR was saved permanently. At the time it wasn't a big deal for me because I didn't care about it, but this was all before Wiimmfi existed. So, cut to the release of CTGP-R and, later, Wiimmfi. When I first got Wiimmfi everything was working as it should have, I could race online and nothing unusual would happen, it never registered that I had 0 BR. Conutdown mode is released, BR and Battle mode gets thrown out the window, but everything's still working normally.

Up until today.

Today when I tried to get online it gave me the error code 23917 (= Wiimmfi access denied), so I went to check out what was wrong. I saw that I had been banned for, quote: "Invalid VR or BR (6701,0)." and "Kicked because of VR/BR cheats. Ban for 30 minutes.". Now, suddenly, my 0 BR has been noticed and as soon as I try to search for players online it bans me, for something I CAN'T REMOVE. Even though Countdown mode has taken the place of Battle, Wiimmfi still recognizes the BR and kicks me out.

Just to be clear, i'm not mad at you or anyone else, I just want to know why this happened NOW and if it can be fixed without me needing to make a new license, or something like that.

Thank you for your time. /Darkie

You can just use a Modifier cheat code again to set your BR back to a "normal" value. -- Leseratte (talk) 20:35, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
There's no way for me to use cheats while being able to connect to the servers at the same time. I just tried with no luck. -- Darkie 20:49, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, it seems I fixed the problem by searching around a bit. Though it's still strange that it didn't notice I had 0 BR until now... -- Darkie 13:00, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Why am I banned?!

Wiimm this 4tbMyles8110mkwii telling you that you're permenantly banning me from Wiimmfi (23915:Banned Forever:Abusive use of Console Identifiers) why the heck am I banned I don't even know what a console identifier or maybe it has something to do with installing iOS 249 and 250.Please give a respectful response and please unban me. MKWII Liscence:4tbMyles. 4tbMyles8110mkwii (talk) 1:20 4 July 2015 (UTC)

23915 means you are using a MAC changer or a modified ISO including a MAC changer. If you enabled any kind of cheats, disable them. If you downloaded an ISO from the internet, remove it and create your own one (the ones on the internet sometimes contain mac changers). Then wait 15 days without using any kind of MAC changer and you are unbanned -- Leseratte (talk) 07:17, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
"23915:Banned Forever:" is not a Wiimmfi error, but polemic. -- Wiimm (talk) 14:01, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

I Installed iOS 249 and 250 and was fine. Maybe You formatted Your wii? Jax53000VR (talk) 00:07, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Jax53000VR

Request for Unban

Hi Wiimm, I was wondering if you could unban me from Wiimmfi? The first time I hacked, I didn't know it would ban me. The second time, it wasn't me, that was hacking, my friends went into my Wii and I told them I could be banned, but they didn't listen. Philgta5 (talk) 20:22, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Clearly no. I can't proof it and then you tell me something like this: "Dear police, please let me free. I don't know that the manipulation of gambling machines is not legal."

Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Question

Hey Wiimm, I recently started playing Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing, and I used Bean's Wiimmfi Patcher to patch it, and everything online works, yet Time Trial leaderboards disconnect me, with Error Code 98020. Is this feature currently not working or is it just me? -Your friendly neighbour hood dino, JσεεуTD (talk) 19:58, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Online leaderboards do not work for most game, so it's probably normal that you get 98020. -- Leseratte (talk) 20:08, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Mario Kart Wii Wiimmfi EC: 23911 problem

Hi Wiimm, I have a problem. I waited 24 hours for Error code 23911 to be gone, but it wasn't. Any reasons why? Phil2016 (talk) 04:42, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Is it really necessary to post the same request at 2 places (first at correct place here and then afterward at wrong place)? And how do I make a lookup without any technical details like FC, IP, time ...?

Mario Kart Wii Wiimmfi EC: 23887 problem

Hi Wiimm, I have something to ask. My friend waited 7 days for error code 23887 to be gone, but when he reconnected after 7 days, it seems to be still displayed. Any reasons why? 9Paran (talk) 12:41, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

If I say "9Paran" to my Chrystal Ball, it will not light up and don't tell me the answer. So my answer is "no". (I hope you understand what I mean)

MKWii 23911 error code

Sorry, I'll be more specific. My FC is 3693-6718-7668. And it was yesterday. Phil2016 (talk) 16:35, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

MKWii CT Distribution Region problem

Hi Wiimm, for some reason for mine and Zpl's pack ntsc-u users connect to regionals with vx_588 and pal users connect to regionals with vs_588 and I have no idea on how to fix it. Bladestorm227 (talk 20:23, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

That means, that you patched both versions differently. If you send me a zip/rar/7z/.. with staticr.rel and main.dol of ntcs+pal (=4 files), than I can investigate it.
-- Wiimm (talk) 20:42, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Here's the download!3nJhmKaS!YT3TuZBeKQmAGiC1BWUn3Q it has the main.dol and staticr.rel for all regions Bladestorm227 (talk 9:32, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
That was easy, the command wstrt ana */* tells all:

  • You haven't patched the region of main.dol. It's ok, but patching mail.dol changes the login region and helps the server.
  • NTSC-U: You forgot --vs x.
  • NTSC-J: different region.
-- Wiimm (talk) 13:26, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
So what command do I use for which main.dol? Bladestorm227 (talk) 15:09, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
The same as for staticr.rel. The tool knows which option is for which file:
wstrt --wiimmfi --region 1234 --vs x --bt x main.dol StaticR.rel

Why was I banned? No, seriously, why?

I know unban requests usually fall on deaf ears, but please hear me out. I have made two profiles on Custom Track Grand Prix Revolution and both have been banned (error code 23912). I have no idea why, seeing as how I have never broken any Wiimmfi rules at any time in the past. I have never played unfairly (such as targeting or sandbagging) and I have never hacked or modded my Wii in any way (except to play CTGP-R). I am certain the bans are a mistake. Can you please look them up? The two FC's are 0521-3964-0093 and 1638-0909-2328. Thank you. -- Nabrix (talk) 01:29, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

You should discuss about this here. But anyway, I've looked in the ban history of those friend codes and you were never banned. So I guess something went wrong there. Since when were you banned? Have you tried creating a new profile? —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 01:21, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
If I'm not banned, then why do I still fail to connect and get the 23912 error code? The first profile (0521) was created several months ago and was banned a few months ago. I created the second profile (1638) and played on that one. I quit playing for a while but came back a little over a week ago using the same profile. Then it got banned about 4 days ago. I have created a third profile and I'm playing on that. Though I'd rather fix whatever the problem is rather than just continuing to create new profiles and restart with 5K VR every couple weeks. -- Nabrix (talk) 02:25, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Losing region because of unpopularirty

Hey, I looked at my messages today on the Wiimmfi website and it said (and I quote) 'Warning: Region 2501 never used. Use it in the next weeks. Otherwise you'll loose the ownership.' The region itself accessible, but nobody uses it, the region is for the 2.5x Speed Mod and I would like to keep the region, thanks for reading. --Skipper93653 (talk) 12:03, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

This message was sent about 50 times, and more will follow (366 days after region assignment). It's part of the cleaning process. Do you think, the region will be ever ever used? Go online, play some matches to stop auto-disabling and ask me again to reset ownership status.

About a moderator role

JCTC team wants a moderator role on region 2001 and 2002 (= Japanese CT Collection). Is it possible? -- varemi (talk) 10:49, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

No, not possible. -- Wiimm (talk) 15:20, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

About connection’s state from CTGP or not

I think, it depends on our connection state, but Players state who are using red line is worse than White line, that I felt. We are usually in the trouble because of the line and connection state. Is that probably my fault? -- Jolte0n (talk) 11:27, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Are you talking about the color of the line below a player's name when racing? These?
If so, these just indicate the region someone is from: e.g. Japan being red, America being Blue.
-- IEF◇Spyro (talk) 16:34, 19 November 2019 (BST)
to be honest. there's massive problem between the red line and white line, I mean Players who are using white line has really good condition of state.
meanwhile, Players who is using red line are really bad what I feel. and then, it sometimes causes a debate like a slander from Japanese players who are using White line against to red lines.

Wiimmfi Android Application?

Hi Wiimm, I am currently studying Computer Science at my school right now and I am currently in a class dedicated for making Java Android applications. Our semester is coming to a close and for our final project we were assigned to make any app that we wish, all be it fitting in certain requirements. Since I love playing Mario Kart Wii online via Wiimmfi nowadays, I thought I could make an app that displays Mario Kart room data in a neat fashion using HTML parsing, since the Wiimmfi website isn't really friendly on mobile devices. I currently have a GitHub repository for a CLI based version of this here, titled "Wiimmterface" for now, that I was thinking about using as a basis for this application. Although both the CLI and Android projects are currently early in development, I wanted to ask you a question about possibly doing more with this project. Have you been interested in someone creating something like a mobile app that could display Mario Kart Wii room data or data from Wiimmfi as a whole? Or do you think that it isn't really necessary? (I understand that this whole project is completely unnecessary as you could just simply visit the Wiimmfi website on your phone.) I've been thinking recently that this could be an application I could publish to the Google Play Store so people could use it. I'd be happy to hear your thoughts! --bryzinga (talk) 12:39, 23 April 2021 (MST)
