    Slow loading and wonky music in Paper Mario:TTYD from SD

    I'm playing Paper Mario: TTYD from a 32gb SDHC using USBLoader GX. It's mostly fine, except whenever I enter a new area or begin a battle, the screen will hang anywhere from 5 to 30 seconds (a couple times it's lasted almost a minute, though thankfully that seems to be the exception, not the rule) Also, the music will sometimes go out of sync with itself, if that makes any sense, especially during battle sequences (i.e. it sounds like the same song is playing twice, and not at exactly the same time).

    Would this be a problem with the rip that might be corrected by trying it again? Or are there settings to adjust somewhere (in the loader, perhaps) or a better loader to try? Or is this just a "nature of the beast" sort of thing to suck up and deal with? I mean, it's annoying, but certainly not a game breaker in my book.

    Specs: I'm using a freshly softmodded Wii (done according to the Softmod Any Wii guide), system menu 4.3, with the most up-to-date versions of HBC, USBLoader GX, and DIOS MIOS (Lite).

    The reason for that is because you're SD loading. From my experience SD loading GCN games is slower than USB loading them. With USB loading you have IOS 58 giving which ever app you're using USB 2.0 support. With SD loading you do not get that benefit so the games will be slower.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    I'm thinking that I agree with SNES. What "class" is your 32gig SD card? The higher the class number, the faster the reads are. I think though even a class 10 will be slow in some areas when compared to a USB 2.0 hard drive.

    If you choose to switch over to USB, it needs to be FAT32 formatted with 32k clusters and then you will have to install Dios Mios (instead of using Dios Mios Lite). The files you have on your SD card in the /games directory can copy over directory into the USB drive in its /games directory and should then load exactly the same.

    Ah, ok. It's a class 4 card, so that makes sense. If I switch to USB though, I seem to recall reading somewhere (and I can't find it now) that with Dios Mios (not Lite) that you can't play GCN games directly from disc, is that correct? I don't have a USB hard drive yet, but I'm considering it.

    Thanks for your help!

    You would have the same issue with DML, I thought.

    but once you have the ability to play games off the hard drive, even if you can't play game game off disk anymore, you can still install the game to the hard drive and play it that way.

    Currently (with DML) it's still letting me play them from disc. It sounds like it might be worth it to try a hard drive though, if I can lay my hands on one at a reasonable price. I'll take a look around, anyway. Thanks again!
