Topic: Donkey Kong Country 1&2 Wii VC looks like crap on HDTV.....

Anyone else having this problem when running while running the DKC (I only have 1&2) games on an HDTV? Also, yes I am using a composite cable. The funny thing is other VC games look fine, it's just that these two games that don't. I was wondering if there was a fix out there for this or am I just going to have to suffer with it looking like crap. Oh and I suppose I will tell I am using a Monster Game composite cable and I have it set up on HD mode. I have tried it widescreen and 4:3 and both look bad. Any help will be much appreciated.

Define what you mean by "looks like crap" (it's a very subjective statement). Both games look fine on my HDTV, and i still only use the component cable. (hmm, maybe that's the difference?)

Doesn't look smooth, the map looks especially bad. The screen is fuzzed out and the colors are not good and it looks really grainy. Its funny I have a SNES and I have it hooked up to a TV that came out in 1992 and it looks a lot better. I guess I should correct my top statement, it is a Component cable not composite, sorry I got them mixed up.

Hmmm. I would think it's just the usual issue of the non-HD Wii displaying on an HDTV (which can cause some games to look a bit "washed out"), but you said that your other VC games look fine ... maybe try deleting the games and redownloading them? Perhaps there was glitch when they were first downloaded. Other than that, i'm not sure what could be causing it.

DKC games didn't use normal sprites. They used these 3D models compressed into sprites technique thing. So yeah, it's going to look like trash on an HDTV. This is the case with basically every N64 game too unfortunately. I guess you can mess around with the TV's setting, but in the end it can't compare to playing it on an average tube TV.
Although, now that I think about it I did beat DKC 2 on an HDTV. Hm, yeah try redownloading it, if that doesn't work mess around the the display settings.

I did try to mess with all the settings and I even went as far to delete and re download it and still no luck. I guess i'm just going to have to stick with my SNES for my DKC fix. NOTE: It is funny that you said that N64 games do not look good either, but LoZ: OoT looks just fine on my TV.

Even went as far to hook up my Wii to another HDTV and still no luck. Maybe it is the component cable I am using? What component cables are you guys or gals using hook up your Wii to a HDTV?

@Vehemont, you need a standard definition television my friend. Upscaling a videogame that was native to standard televisions will show imperfections that aren't visible in standard definition. Nowadays, you can purchase a really nice standard television extremely cheaply. Big screen tube television w/Dolby digital baby!

I suppose your right ha ha that it is not meant for HDTVs. I am using my standard TV for my SNES so I guess I'll just play it in my room if I want the perfect version. I was just looking forward to playing it on my HDTV for convenience and comfort-ability of my living room. sigh

I use component cables and it looks fine all my games but i don´t have DKC to try with that game.

Me gusta jugar videojuegos. Soy de México. Sorry my english grammar. I love the Virtual Console, party and fighting games too.

Simple. You need a CRT TV + video component cable = best image possible on Virtual Console titles.
I used HDTV only for my HD consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360).
For my SD Consoles like Wii, GC and PS2 I used only a SD TV (CRT).

I'm using the ones that came with my Wii as far as I know. If you're not you could try borrowing a friends cables (That use Nintendo ones) and using that. If none of your friends have the ones that came with their wii you'll have to order replacements from Nintendo just to see if that's the problem.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Looks great on mine. HDTV + component.

Kachou on!

Unfortunately, games like this one will never look as good on an HDTV. I keep an old CRT around in a back room for this purpose, but I realize that not everyone has the space or willingness to do that.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.
