Q: What is RiiConnect24?

RiiConnect24 is a replacement to a defunct service for the Wii called WiiConnect24. It allowed users to exchange mail between Wiis and use fun channels such as the Forecast and News Channel. The service was shut down on June 28, 2013.

Q: Why are you bringing WiiConnect24 back?

A lot of people missed the channels that were offered with WiiConnect24, because they were fun, innovative, unique, and had nice music. It's nice to see the online features of the Wii being brought back, especially after such a long down-time.

Q: Does RiiConnect24 allow me to play Wii games online again?

No, you are confusing this service with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, another service that was shut down. If you want to play Wii games online again, take a look at Wiimmfi, we work closely with them.

Q: Do I need to mod my Wii to use this service?

Yes. However, the process of modding your Wii is pretty easy and allows you to do many cool things with your Wii.

Q: Am I able to use RiiConnect24 and Wiimmfi at the same time?

Q: Will you bring back the Check Mii Out/Mii Contest and Nintendo Channel?

They currently aren't supported with RiiConnect24. However, we hope to support them in the future, a lot of people ask about the former channel. They haven't been supported yet due to a lot of reverse engineering that needs to be done.

Q: Does RiiConnect24 work on Dolphin emulator?

Unfortunately, it doesn't work properly at the moment because Dolphin doesn't have code to emulate WiiConnect24.
