    Xenoblade from a 16gb USB stick- LOOONG load times/freezes

    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to run Xenoblade from a USB stick but it keeps freezing at official load times and during the opening cut scene. It boots up normally but when I go to start a new game, it takes at least 5 minutes for the opening scene to start. During random times of the opening scene, the game freezes. I'm somewhat illiterate when it comes to this stuff so please try and throw me a bone. Could it be because I'm running it from a flash drive?

    I'm using Configure USB Loader, and i used the "Joystiq- How to play Xenoblade Chronicles if you live in North America", so I'm using IOS 248. I ran a syscheck, and it seems that IOS 249 is stubbed, but since I'm not using it to boot Xenoblade, I'm guessing it doesn't matter. Nonetheless, I tried recopying the meta file but it still registers as stubbed, but again, I'm guessing it doesn't matter because I'm using 248.

    Can anyone shed some light on this? What settings were used in CFG on the actual game to get it to work? Forcing NTSC? Switching the language to English? Tried these things and it still didn't work. Any other settings I should adjust?

    Thanks!

    It worked just fine for my using default values and ripping the disk to my USB drive via CFG.


    If you are lacking 249, you should mod your system using our guide (soft mod any Wii) before anyone will help you with any other specific information.

    As for your cut scene loading times, it very well could be due to using a thumb stick. They are not known for being the fastest of devices.

    Well thanks for the input. I bet that's what it is too. I actually let one of the frozen cut scenes go for a minute and it unfroze and i continued on.

    Well these freezes are happening entirely too much (every 5 minutes?), so I guess it's time to suck it up and buy my HDD a little earlier than expected. The Wii's USB ports are 2.0 right? So getting a 3.0 HDD won't necessarily help me that much in terms of speed...?

    3.0s are getting better with compatibility with beta d2x cIOSs, but it is still hit or miss. USB 2.0 is recommended. We have a thread here with lists of hard drive models known to work (or not). Try to sniff that post out before you make your choice. I can tell you that this is what I use: http://url.llaffer.com/wiihd may be overkill for most people, but works for me.
