    Weird Wad problem... Not the right games showing up

    Hi all,

    I'm pretty new to all this but have been able to follow instructions and have installed homebrew channel and got some VC-games working perfectly fine. I downgraded my 3.4eu to 3.2eu also without major problems.

    But here's the thing, whenever I try to install any of the Final Fantasy games (IV to VI) they install fine but when I restart they all show up as Diddy kong and won't start, see the attached picture from FFIV.

    I was thinking it might have something to do with regions and maybe the VC-files rely on some sort of ID and that ID corresponds to Diddy Kong in Europe and FF in some other region, but I really don't know. I tried using different wad-files (can't really confirm they are different, though they are from different sources) but still only Diddy kong and they won't start, the screen just goes black.

    Also, apparently Secret of Mana has magically turned into Kirby something...

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thx a lot for a very helpful site, I am playing Zelda while I try to figure this one out so I'm ok

    You're doing something VERY dangerous, playing "injected" Virtual Console titles.

    When a VC game isn't available, people take the framework of an existing and inject their own rom into it. Because they're doing rush work, they don't bother to change the "banner" (ex. the Ditty Kong image).

    If an injection isn't done properly, you can brick your console by installing / running it.
