Anybody else having/had/etc this problem? Error codes 61020, 61070, and then finally a connection + 81010 (91010?) once I try to do anything.

It's also entirely possible it's a problem on the server end, ie Nintendo's having trouble with their networks. Hopefully this is the case.


A bit unsurprising if Nintendo isn't able to get and keep online play working, though

Considering that WFC is a partnership between Nintendo and GameSpy, it's not surprising at all.

Oh, and I updated a few days ago when I got that letter from Nintendo, but I haven't been able to play Wii for a few days, so I'm not sure if there's another new one, but I was able to get online afterwards.

There is another new update, which you shouldn't download if you want to do homebrew on the Wii (as it fixes a bug that allows improperly signed code to be run).

(This list is incomplete)

I updated, and was still capable of playing the Genesis emulator via the Twilight hack.

The Twilight Hack isn't what it fixes. It's the Trucha Disc-running/Homebrew Channel-throwing exploit.

Twilgiht Hack supposedly can't be fixed without a pretty big patch by Nintendo... and when have they ever done a patch?

A lot of people complained about this yesterday (I got the error too when I tried), but it seems to have fixed itself within a few hours.  You still having issues?
