Wow, wii mode looks like crap, was any effort put into this?

So, I booted up skyward sword in Wii mode, man this thing is rubbish. Firstly it looks like it's half the resolution of the original Wii. I don't know if it's tried to stretch it out to 1080p, and the upscaling just misses every second pixel or what, but there's a nasty cross thatch looking texture to the whole screen, with terrible jaggies all around, absolutly rubbish.

Even ignoring that, it's running with black borders around the whole screen. I can solve this by setting the TV to 16:9 rather then auto detect, but if Nintendo wants to remove the video settings in the console menu, they could at least get thier only setting right for ***** sake. This thing is a total mess. I don't know how to explain how bad this looks and still get through gamefaqs censoring...

It should work exactly as your Wii did. Mine looks completely identical down to the pixel. There's no upscaling. Did you set your resolution correctly in the Wii U settings?

Well I set the Wii U to run in 1080p, the Wii mdoe seems to also run in 1080, and seems to upscale terrible which I think is the problem. I tried changing the Wii modes video settings, but Nintendo removed them... so yeah...

And no, it aint my TV, the game looks fine on my original Wii, just rubbish on the Wii U.

Curious. It actually looks better for most people. Instead of a blurry mess you get a detailed image. Of course that, with the Wii's resolution the detailed image is full of aliasing, but that's to be expected.

Here's an example:

The Wii mode video settings are in the Wii U settings, NOT the Wii settings. You should set it to widescreen 480p. Wii mode can't display in 1080p.

I just read that there are issues with running the Wii mode in a PAL environment, as it was designed for NTSC... Might be the issue...
