The Wii Vault was built by collecting games from various places, however Redump doesn't publish Wii data so there's no way to tell a good copy from a bad one. It turns out Redump catalogs the Wii privately so now the Wii Vault has been updated with Redump verified copies of all but three games. Each game has been verified, then converted to .wbfs format with the update partition removed. Game titles have also been changed to match Redump. With this finished, Vimm's Lair might be the first site with a clean copy of every US Wii game!

A big update is complete for the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Genesis Vaults. Each Vault was built years ago with games verified in GoodGB, GoodGBC, and GoodGen. Now they've all been switched to No-Intro. Most games are the same in both and haven't changed, but any conflicts have been replaced with No-Intro versions. Many games incorrectly listed as US releases have also been updated or removed, and all game titles have been changed to match No-Intro's database.

The Nintendo Vault will continue using GoodNES since No-Intro doesn't include NES headers, which most emulators need.

The PlayStation 2 Vault has been nearly finished for years but was missing a couple games. Today it's finally finished and now contains a Redump verified copy of every game released in the US.
