Nintendo Wii Tricks and Secrets Mii Channel -- getting around the 20 friend send limit As you're already aware, it's very easy to waste many hours on the Mii Channel creating your own little walking masterpieces. Once you've created the perfect Mii, the first thing you probably want to do is send it to your friends. But what if you have more than twenty people to send it to? What if you've made three or four Miis and don't want anyone to have to wait. Luckily, there's a work-around for this annoyance. The Wii keeps track of how many Miis you've sent in a given day via the console's internal calendar...which can be changed. To circumvent the Wii's Mii-sending limit, simply change the Wii's date to something wildly different than the current date. Don't worry, this won't mess with anything internally and once the change is in place, just send another 20 Miis before you'll be stopped again. You can send another twenty Miis once the calendar is reset back to normal.

Wii Bowling change ball color Don't like that default blue bowling ball you always get stuck with when playing a solo game of Wii Bowling? Neither do I, so change it! After selecting the Mii you want to use in the pre-game menus, a warning message will display. (It's usually the one that warns you about hitting anything while you play.) At this time, you can hold down one of the four D-Pad directions on the Wii remote and press the A Button to change your ball color to something different. D-Pad Left: Red ball D-Pad Right: Gold ball D-Pad Up: Blue ball D-Pad Down: Green ball When playing a multiplayer game with multiple controllers, each player can select their own ball color. If you like the blue ball but aren't Player 1, holding Up on the pad will get you your favorite color. Reward Locker

Wii Sports Baseball Pitching Tricks As your skill level in Wii Sports Baseball increases, the pitch variety of the computer opponents will increase dramatically. One of the things the computer does to throw off your home run timing is to throw sidearm pitches instead of the traditional overhand. The instruction manual doesn't tell you how to do this, so it seems like one less advantage you have against the other team. Well, here's the secret of the sidearm pitch. In addition to changing pitch types with combinations of the A Button and B Trigger, the 1 and 2 Buttons allow you to change your throw style on the fly. In the default overhand throw mode, hitting the 2 Button before flinging the ball toward the plate will cause you to dip down and deliver a pitch from a lower angle. You'll continue to throw balls this way until hitting the 1 Button to switch back to the regular throwing style. The different angle of the sidearm throw makes pitches behave differently. Picking up on pitches is vital on knowing when to hold back or knowing when to swing for the fences, so delivering them differently each time is crucial to defensive success. If you're having trouble beating your friends from the mound, not better way to say "get off my plate" than to send down some heat from down below!

Wii Virtual Console Secrets The Wii Menu is the first thing you see when you boot up the system. The default layout of the channels is alright if you don't plan on purchasing too many Virtual Console games, but if your itch for classic games is too strong to resist scratching, you may find that you may not be satisfied with how the channels are organized on the menu. There's an oft-overlooked remedy to this problem. Holding down the A Button and B Trigger while pointing at a channel screen will grab it for easy repositioning into an empty slot. This allows you to arrange your Virtual Console library in the way that you want, or shift underused channels to a different page. Moving channels around also gives you the added benefit of switching between them with the Plus/Minus buttons in the order of your choosing. There are no restrictions on where you can place channels, other than the Disc Channel cannot be moved from the upper-left corner on the first page. The A+B dragging trick isn't just limited to the Wii Menu. Obviously, it's how you pick up Miis in the Mii Plaza and Mii Parade areas of the Mii Channel. However, you can also use it to spread out your messages on the Wii Message Board so that you don't accidentally open a message you didn't want because it was laying on top of another one.

Wii Tennis Tricks Tennis is always a good game to come back to when you've got friends to play it with. Too bad there's only one court with which you can disperse the love. But wait, we've got an ace up our sleeve! Do you know about the blue court you practice on in the Tennis Training Mode games? There's a secret option to select it before starting a standard doubles match. After picking Miis in the pre-game menus and arriving at the final warning screen, hold down the 2 Button before advancing. Keep it held down until the black fades to reveal the blue practice court on which you can play a regular doubles game. There's nothing particularly special about the location, but at least it's different than what you're used to seeing. For kicks, you can turn a single-player match into a one-person Pong-off by setting all four player slots on the court to your own Mii. What better way is there to practice Tennis than to play against yourself?

Wii Photo Channel Puzzle Tricks The Wii Photo Channel is fairly useless. You can do all sorts of fun stuff with pictures on an SD card, but you can't save any changes you make to them unless you post them to the Wii Message Board and send them to yourself in an email message. The ability to create slide shows set to an MP3 file is okay, but what fun is that? One way to kill time in the Photo Channel is to break a photo into pieces and then try to put the picture back together. To reach the Photo Channel's puzzle mode, you first need to select the "Fun!" option when viewing a photo, then select Puzzle from the list of options. If you haven't done a puzzle with the selected photo, you'll first need to do an easy six-piece test to unlock the ability to select how many puzzle pieces you want to break the picture into. Depending on the picture you use and the number of pieces you choose to jumble it up with, it can be a genuine challenge to get the picture straight. The puzzle difficulty selection screen will show that you can only do a 48-piece puzzle at most, but there's a secret to up the difficulty to an insane level. If you hold down the 1 Button, the 48 box will change to 192. If you select it while still holding the button down, your photo will turn into a mosaic of epic proportions. Photo puzzle mode doesn't work like a traditional slide puzzle, as you can drag any piece to any location you want. The two chips will swap places with each other. Even with this change, fixing a puzzle with that many tiny pieces is borderline ridiculous. You might want to try something a little easier, but now you have the option to go crazy.
