    [Guide] Super Mario Galaxy 2



    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Yes, the game is upon us. For usb loaders you should have no trouble playing it. Disc users as well. So far, unlike it's predecessor upon release, it even works well with most modchips (002 error/Unable to read disc error users see below). For softmods we've tested this with IOS249 revs 14, 17, & 19. Working fine with no issues at all.

    One special thing to note is that like Endless Ocean 2 and Fifa 2010, SMG2 comes with a 4.2 firmware update. Like every other game, the firmware contained in the update IS NOT REQUIRED to actually play SMG2 and you should not take this update if you are on 4.1 or lower (modchip users or softmod users). Yes that means you can still be on 4.1, 3.2, etc. etc. and play SMG2.

    Make sure you've installed Priiloader and blocked disc updates, (links at the bottom of this post) and make sure you've updated IOS56 to v5405.

    So enjoy the game! That's right, no special fixes on this one.

    This is the thread to post your "confirmed working on..." posts or ask your questions. Other threads asking questions about this game will be closed up.

    =====================
    "Unable to Read Disc" Errors

    Some of you have been getting this one. I have no idea why or how this works, but here's the fix:

    Download WiiISORenamer.exe

    Use WiiISORenamer.exe to open your SMG2 ISO.
    In the GAMEID box change SB4E01 to RB4E01 and save.
    Burn/load as usual.

    ======================
    002 Error/Black Screen: Modchips and Softmods

    Go here.

    ======================
    Updated your IOS56, tried everything, still getting a green screen?

    Change the language setting for this game in your loader to "English" instead of system or default. If this works for you, go here and click the Thanks button on quilzo's post.

    Will test with my un-updated (since Apr 2009) Wiikey2 later.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Looks that way. I just finished the first section of the game using Wiiflow - no issues. Continued on by loading in USB Loader GX - no issues at all. Both using my regular cIOS, no adjustments made at all - just load and go. I'll try discs in the morning. According to reports:

    Wiikey FW1.9 - works
    Wiikey 2 FW1.2 - works

    So it looks like we might just have a normal no-issue game on our hands. I hope so.

    If it really is that easy, only thing I could think of that's lacking in the guide is mentioning which ios the games uses and maybe a blurb about using priiloader to block disc updates since (I assume) the majority of posts will be people who had their softmods and region free killed. That's all I can think of. Wish I didn't have to go to work so I could tinker with it.

    Only system menu 4.2? No Protection? I'm disappointed.

    Works on my Wiikey2 and through USB Loader GX (not new version) with cIOS rev 14. Scrubbed image with no update partition. Played about 5 levels.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I was using the NTSC image available, it worked without any adjustment with my Wiikey2 but needed Force PAL50 for the USB loader.

    I'm making edits right now. I'll add the IOS information as soon as we find out what it is. The ISO I have doesn't load in IOSPatcher.

    I don't think Nintendo are as stupid as that. There are bound to be people who won't buy it and just pirate it.

    Epic fail though, a big chance missed by the big N.
