I just found out this afternoon that my friend from ACUKE was infected with the DimentioMsk HDLC Virus. 😦 Since I recently visited a UK town to get the new DLC items, I am likely to be infected as well, since my ACUKE friends visit each other often.
The good news is that (from what I’ve researched) this doesn’t mess up my Wii system. The only problem is the fact that this is HDLC, which is of course “hacked” DLC content. That means that the DimentioMsk is taking up a memory slot that Nintendo might want to use to distribute a new DLC item. If Nintendo uses the same exact slot to release a DLC, I won’t be able to see the new item. I’ll only see the HDLC item that is already stored there. Sorry if this is too technical, but I can’t think of a simpler way to explain this.
The reason this is called a virus is due to the way it is spread. Since the hacker who created this code copied an item from Able’s Shop, then this HDLC will go into the shop’s inventory rotation. I might not see the DimentioMsk item in the store for months. The problem is, you can pass on this HDLC ‘virus’ to anybody that you WIFI with. That means that anyone you come into contact with will also get the virus. 😦 So basically that means that all my friends that I saw today are probably infected too.
I’m very sorry. I am not a hacker. I don’t approve of hacking code to change the game. I wish there was something I could do about this, but the only way to stop it would be to restart my whole game! I really hope Nintendo finds a fix for this, or at least I hope the HDLC doesn’t interfere with any new DLC coming out in the future.
