Topic: Mario Kart Wii 30fps singleplayer issue

So when I play Mario kart Wii on my Wii I've noticed that the game runs at 30fps. At first, I thought it was because I was playing custom tracks so I went onto regular courses and had the same problem. On youtube videos of Mario kart Wii, I've seen their games run fine at 60fps. So I tried it on my Wii U and it ran fine. But there are YouTubers who play on Wii consoles and their games run at 30fps. So I want to know if there is something wrong with my Wii or TV Settings. I don't think this matters but I use a Wii2HDMI adapter because my TV doesn't support the original Wii output method. Does anyone know the problem or how to fix it?

@Jack7861 If you haven't already done so, go into the Wii menu settings, and try the various display settings, to see which one works best for your screen. Mine is set at 480p, but you could also try 576i.

On a side note: I actually used to have that same adapter, but since it stretches the picture in an unnatural way, and the colors are overly vibrant (well, at least on my plasma screen), I got rid of it, and bought a high grade component cable instead. Every modern TV should have component inputs.

And the upscaler actually could matter, depending on if your TV has a game mode/low latency mode, and the upscaling of the screen interferes with the upscaling of the Wii2HDMI adapter, which is why component cables are always better, because they don't upscale, but simply transfer the Wii's native video signal in the highest quality possible.

Either way, the cost of the average component cable certainly won't break the bank, so it's always worth getting one, even as a spare, so here you go:

@ThanosReXXX Thanks, I followed your advice and it worked. I can't believe all I had to do was up my quality in Wii Settings.

@Jack7861 You're welcome. Glad I could help.

On a side note: you might still also want to look into that component cable as well, though. You'll be surprised at how good that can look, and as a bonus, it'll free up one of your HDMI inputs for any of your other devices.

Either way, it's always good to have a component cable, even as a spare, as previously mentioned. These cheap HDMI adapters do have a tendency to give the ghost at any random point in time.
