    Question RockBand "a bit confused"

    Hi All

    first of all... great site! I did a lot of reading on here and managed to softmod my Wii
    One thing I am a bit confused about is RockBand.
    I just bought the RB2 set with the wireless instruments and its origy game disc.
    Now I have a backup of RB1 and its not detecting the wireless intruments of RB2 (only the mic)
    I tried the IOS37 as IOS232 (I believe thats what it was) but nothing happens... is this only working for RB2 to be able to play the wired RB1 instruments? Im really confused

    any help i would be happy

    Did you make sure to connect your instruments through the windows or linux (depending on what you're using) bluetooth setup? I don't really know much about this, but, if it were me, that's what I would check first.

    You had the first part correct dobipup81. You want to use cios installer and install ios37 as ios232 BUT you also need to install softchip. Download the newest softchip there is and install it. When it asks you what you want to install softchip as, select 232. After thats done, go to wadder.net and download the rockband launcher powered by softchip. It should have a dol forwarder in it. Youll see my posts in that thread. Just register (its free) and go to forum and then its either in channels or channel requests. Install the wad using wad manager and bingo. You can use that to play all your rockband titles.

    The rockband channel has a dol forwarder in it which will direct you to the softchip thats on your sd card. You MUST have a folder called "softchip" inside your apps folder and have the softchips boot.dol inside the softchip folder. Make sure you installed softchip as ios 232 and also make sure you installed ios37 as 232. If you have done all those things correctly, the games should work. Also If i recall, the first time you enter softchip, there will be a menu. I am not sure how I have mine set up but once you get the games working, theres a setting there to automatically load the game without having to see the menu everytime.

    ok i got all the folders on my sd card and in the right spot
    i installed custom ios37 with ios36 rev7 dip as ios249 (no option for 232 if thats what u mean?)
    now softchip channel and rockband launcher both will come up as just black screen... no options at all just black screen... backup launcher loads disc but no instruments
    im really confused

    i forgot, i got the softchip as .wad i believe the page where u download the softchip normal is down
