    wiikey 2 help/questions game loading issues

    I modded my wii a year+ ago with a wiikey2. I have not used my wii in probably almost a year now All my old backup games work fine still, well I just got a few backups, new mario brothers for one and princess and the frog for my daughter. I go to launch them and the screen just goes black.

    I think I have system 3.2 (think that was the latest at the time I modded the wii) I will go check the version and post it.

    What do I need to do in order to get newer games to load properly?

    Ohh I just updated my wiikey2 from 1.1 to 1.3 also btw, same results. I do have homebrew installed also.. has to be an old version though, its been a year+ since it was done, never used it either I don't think.. not sure I know what it is anymore lol

    suggestions?


    thanks all

    ** I am on 3.2U

    for nsmb to work on a wiikey 2 you need to update the chip to v1.3 which you already did and (this is the most important) get an unpatched, unscrubbed copy.

    so play an original once, then after that a copy will work fine?

    No playing an original will not make the bacup work if it has been patched or scrubbed, The problem with NSMB is that while everyone was waiting for the updates to the chips to be able to play it, people found a way to patch the game and make it play with softmods, the problem is without all of the softmods there is no way to play the patched game, if you can find an untouched/original dump of the game you should be fine. You might also need to update you Wii to make it play some of the new games. But I would try to find a good dump of the game first.
    Good Luck

    Make sure that you only do disc updates though. An online update will surely kill your wiikey.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.
