    Wii Music black screen - IOS updated - USB GX

    Hi guys,

    I recently downloaded Wii Music (just because I could). Everything seemed to go as usual. Downloaded, wrote to HDD using WBFS Manager, plugged it in, downloaded cover art.

    Upon trying to actually play the game, however, I got a black screen and my wiimote became unresponsive. No big deal. I went to the IOS games list, updated the IOS, and tried again. Same result. I removed from HDD. Unzipped again, and added the iso again. Tried to play again. Still, same response.

    Basically, its not that fantastic of a game and God knows I can live without it. But at this point, I'm just curious as to what could possibly be wrong. Aside from possibly a bad download?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: I tried 002 error fix and Force Video as well. And I'm running 4.2U

    If it's not an IOS issue then it could be a bad ISO issue.

    Try opening the ISO in Dolphin, the gamecube/Wii emulator. If it works in there then you know the ISO can't be all bad. Also try opening in ISO patcher and Wiiscrubber. Just because someone's copy needed IOSxx doesn't mean your copy does, it could have been IOS patched.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Try using DopIOS to update/install IOS35

    Hmm.
    So, right after downloading Wii Music, I downloaded Wii Sports, and that had the exact same problem. I ran them both on Dolphin as Tealc suggested and they both worked fine. Which gets me stumped. I thought that I had managed to screw up my HDD somehow, so I removed a known working game (Mario Strikers) and then readded it. But when I ran it through USB loader, it worked. So it shouldn't be a fried HD.

    Should I continue with ISO patcher? I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with it. Any tips?
    Thanks.

    Oh, and to svin, thanks for your suggestion, but I had already tried updating IOS35 with NUSD with no results.

    Jus as a tip. If you fire up DopMii then you will get a description of all IOS'es.

    Is the game the same region as the console?

    If not, that could be the issue...

    Hmm. It is not the same region, but that's never mattered before. I just force video to NTSC for PAL games and its never been a problem before.

    How do you "fire up DopMii"? I've never used it before.
    Are you referring to the Dop-IOS MOD in HBC?

    Thanks.

    So you are on a NTSC wii, and you run other PAL games fine, so that's probably not it then...

    DopMii is a new mod of the DopIOSMod :P Just install it to HBC as any other app and run it..

    Oh, cool.

    Okay, well, I downloaded and installed it.
    Do you want the whole log or something?

    I have IOS222 installed, which I tried running it on (didn't work).
    IOS35 is v3349, which should be suitable for the game. I don't think its an IOS problem. (or apparently a corrupt iso problem).

    EDIT:
    Actually, should I try installing IOS35 with DopMii? Everything says disabled, I don't know what that means though =/

    Solution (for the next guy with this problem):

    So it turned out to be a region problem. Tried a bunch of stuff like main.dol extraction and Pal-to-NTSC conversion, but none of that worked. Surprisingly enough, it worked after I changed video mode to Force Pal50, even though I'm on a NTSC Wii. It gave me a small flick of a green screen, but then proceeded to run fine.

    It did the trick with Wii Music as well as Brain Academy, hope this helped.

    I tried your settings, but I'm on a TV that only uses Composite RCA cables, and using your method the best I get is black and white, stretched. Are you using component cables or am I missing something in what you're doing?

    patched IOS 35, using IOS 222, Force Pal 50
