    Worms Battle Island won't work online!

    So, I've been searching and reading for hours, and the only thing I can even find related to this game was the freezing on startup problem everyone was having when it first came out. Anyways, I want to play ranked games, which you do by selecting Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection at the main menu of the game. So I connect to that, and it does so just fine. I can even view the leaderboards. But when I go try and play a game, no matter what kind I select (i.e. Quick Play>Deathmatch or Serious Worms>Tactics, all it does is say "Searching for games. . . . ." and it has a little searching animation in the dotdotdots and everything. It just keeps doing that, forever, until I die and turn into ashes, rise from them, hatch from my egg until I am again a grown man sitting in my chair waiting to shoot somebody's worm in the face while hanging from a ninja rope. It doesn't freeze or anything, I can exit the searching for games thing if i want to, and disconnect from the wi-fi. So, if anybody thinks they have a solution for this problem, please share it! Thank you very much in advance.

    Most likely it's an issue with how your network is set up. Have you tried putting you Wii in DMZ? Is this a backup game? If so, does the original disk work?

    my network is set up fine, it is a back up (hence my posting in game playing issues for some specific backups), I am not sure what dmz is, the original worms game does work as of last night, I borrowed it from my friend again just to see. I have my wii softmodded according to mauifrog's guide(or what was his guide, anyway), and everything is up to date. what is dmz, and if this wouldn't be the problem, what else might be? thank you for the response, btw!

    EDIT: oh, also my wii is on system menu 4.1, I am using cfg for usb loading, i think it is on IOS 250, the game is run on hermes 222(or whatever it's called, and that is the only one that works), and that's all i can think of while I'm at work.

    kind of. she and i own all of our games together, you could say. i buy most of them and then give them to her after i rip to my hard drive, because she likes most of what i play. so i suppose technically, she's borrowing it from me, just i haven't had it for a long time. anyway, this isn't important and doesn't apply to this topic. you didn't answer any of my other questions, i suppose because you were trying to be ninja cool and nail me for piracy. but i honestly have an issue, and i honestly need help with that, so can you just only post something that might help? not trying to be rude, but i've been waiting all day for a response, and when i finally read it, it's... /that,/ and that is not why i created this thread. i created this thread for help(and i'd love some) on this site because it /is/ the most respected site in regards to wii modding. so come on, and help a guy out on the only site i'm gonna find it! thanks in advance!

    "This isn't important" to you, you mean. Apologies, but this needs to be clear: wiihacks in no way knowingly facilitates with copyright infringement or piracy. You have your opinion, and that may well be valid to you. But you have to understand (even if you don't agree) that with ever shifting legal standards, opinions, policies, and so forth --- what you think is outweighed by the legitimate purpose of this site. We cannot afford to help you, so with this in mind consider the thread closed and speak no more of it.
