I have recently got a Wii, partly to play Gamecube games (on disc), and I was just wondering where games that use the system clock get their date and time. Do they use the system clock for the Wii, or is there a separate setting for the Gamecube.

So far, I haven't played any games that use the system clock, this is more out of curiosity.

    Why would there be a separate GC clock that's not synchronised with the normal one, with no way to set it?

Yes, they use Wii's system clock so games like animal crossing will work in real time in your Wii just like in gamecube.


Thankfully no they don't do this. This is because you are using the GameCube disc in the Wii.
