Obtaining Friend Vouchers after June 28, 2013

#1Mario maniacPosted 5/22/2013 1:43:54 AM
With WiiConnect24 services shutting down on June 28, 2013, this means gamers will lose the ability to trade green Friend Vouchers in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Metroid Prime Trilogy. After this date, you won't be able to unlock various bonuses across the two games through the usual method.

To access the Friend Voucher content after June 28, 2013, you have a few options in the "Saves" section just up above. Or, have a link:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/wii/928517-metroid-prime-3-corruption/saves

Lancet Jades has created an NTSC save file which has unlocked all the necessary green Friend Vouchers, with no other game progress made. This save file is suitable for those who are new to the game or are looking to start their files over again.

I followed suit and made a PAL save file with all necessary green Friend Vouchers unlocked.

What do I miss out on once WiiConnect24 goes down?

Technically nothing, as you will still have access to the content with the above link. But Friend Vouchers unlock these features in Metroid Prime 3:

• the screen-shot tool
• a bobble-head of your Mii in Samus's Gunship
• bumper stickers for Samus's Gunship
• 6 diorama models
• 3 concept galleries.

How many green Friend Vouchers do you need to unlock all the content?

Fifteen per save file.

But I've gotten this far in the game, I don't want to start over to get the content!

There are alternative save files available in the Saves section that have everything 100% unlocked. I suggest using those save files instead once you have unlocked everything you are able to. Lancet Jades and I made these files to give people the opportunity to start from scratch and still unlock everything later for themselves.

How do I get the files onto my Wii?

I recommend checking RightSaidFred's guide on doing so:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/930752-nintendo-wii/41250797/452095887

The code you need to refer to is provided in the Saves section.

Will these save files affect my Wii/Wii U console?

They shouldn't. I unlocked the Friend Vouchers in my save without the aid of a cheat device, personally. If you come across a problem with any save file, please contact the person who submitted it and report the problem to GameFAQs.

I have Metroid Prime Trilogy. Can I access the Friend Voucher content in that game?

After June 28, 2013, WiiConnect24 will shut down for all compatible software. The only way to access the content after this date is to take a trip to the Saves section for the Metroid Prime Trilogy board. Lancet Jades and I have both created similar save files for that game, too.

I have an Australian Wii/Wii U, will the PAL save file work on my console?

Yes.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to PM me.

Just a heads up: I made a mistake with the initial save I uploaded here, so I had it removed. I'll reupload it soon.

If people could please sticky request this, it may prevent topics asking the above questions when WC24 shuts down. Thanks.

Have you guys done this for the Trilogy version of the game, as well? If not, I'd suggest it...

At the moment there are two save files I've made for Corruption on the Save page. Please use the one with the most recent date; the other one does not let you choose your Mii character.

Yeah, I mentioned that we did in a question. :p I did have mine removed briefly though because of the choosing your own Mii thing.

(As a side note if people could please sticky request this topic, it'll be useful down the track.)

Posting just to keep this topic out of archive danger (I'm unsure of the period, so I don't want to take any chances). I requested a sticky because I also think it's important (at least as far as this game goes) for people to know how to obtain green tokens after WiiConnect 24 goes out, though I doubt my one request alone will have any effect (it still hasn't) since the small character limit of the comments area didn't allow me to make a very convincing case.

EDIT: As long as I'm here, I'll ask this: Is it possible to swap friend vouchers locally/with LAN/semi-offline/whatever if the two Wii consoles are handy in the same area?

I don't think that'll work, sorry. The vouchers require WiiConnect24 to be available. Unless LAN compatibility is a hidden feature, but that's doubtful. Sorry.

Does the NTSC save file of 15 Friend Credits have Hyper Mode difficulty unlocked, though?

It only has the friend vouchers unlocked. No progress has been made on the file.
