Hi!

I just bought my very first VC game for the Wii, Mega Man 2, but I just can't get it working using my component cable. Whenever the game starts, my monitor says "unsupported video mode" (that's a message from the monitor, not from the game or Wii) and it keeps black and no sound is playing. When I press HOME, I get the usual menu, even with a screenshot of the game in the background, but when i close the HOME menu, it all turns black again. I've already tried all sort of screen settings in the Wii configuration (576i, 480i, 480p), but none solved my problem. The strange thing is: I own 9 WiiWare games and 4 retail games, and all work fine with my component cable. I learnt in the Mega Man 2 description, that it even supports the interlace mode via component cable, hence I'm puzzled even more now.

Has anyone experienced the same or similar issue?

Interlace Mode needs to be enabled to use it - go into the Operations Manual for the game, and press Z+A+2 (you'll need to attach the nunchuck). A sound effect will play when done. To disable it again, press Z+A+1. Hopefully that should fix it.

Thanks a lot, Raylax! That fixes my issue :) As it seems, the game will even remember whether i turned interlace mode on or off when restarting it again. Quite cool. But I wonder why i didn't read about that Z+A+2 thing in any of the two Wii manuals or in the game's manual... did I simply overlook it, or is it really an "undocumented feature"?

I think its because the fix came about as a system update, so it isn't in the hard-copy manuals. Not sure why it isn't in the game manual though. Just one of those things, I guess. Glad it works now, anyway~
