    Specific games halting during play

    Wii Family Ski & Snowboard halts on Loading

    When my DVD drive died, I softmodded my Wii. I have a setup that seems to mostly work. One consistent problem: When playing Wii Family Ski & Snowboard, each time the game needs to load stuff off disk (the "Loading..." screen appears), it freezes at this point. The Wii pointers still move around and the BG music continues, but the game never progresses. It always halts at the same point.

    I have CFG v70 and have tried IOS 248 and 249. I'm not even sure if that's significant. I'm loading off a 32Gb USB stick (I don't have many games). Does anyone have any ideas what I might try to tweak? Options in CFG, perhaps?

    Many thanks.

    OKay, I hadn't saved the 249 setting. Now I have saved it and it's much more stable, but still falls over occasionally just at the end of a competition.

    My next one is Wii Fit and Wii Resort. When entering a new character in Wii fit, we got to the point where the height and age had been verified and the screen goes white and it was staying white. I assume the game is trying to do a load here. It was consistent. Switched to IOS 249 and we got past that point, but now it consistently freezes just as it's about to start the initial athletic balance tests.

    Is it likely that there's a solution, or is this just the way it is with softmod?

    Have you tried a rerip? That may or may not solve the problems, but its a good place to start. Also be sure you plug the usb drive in the port on the outside, nearest to the edge of the case, some usb loaders will yell at you if you don't put it there or won't work right if its not in the proper slot.

    Rerip not an option as DVD drive is dead. I downloaded. I suppose i could try a different DL.

    I'm learning about cIOS at the moment. I've spotted that my problematic Wii Fit Plus uses IOS53, but except for mauifrog's list, I can't find a genealogy of cIOS, so I don't know which are base 53.

    Question on cIOS: Is it the case that the higher the number, the greater the likelihood of compatibility? I reckon probably not, since different IOS seem to be for different groups of hardware, so different cIOS' are likely to be modded versions of their "parent."

    99% of games will work fine with a base of 56. If you followed softmod any wii guide on this site, that is in slot 248. If that doesn't work try with a base of 57, which would be slot 250. If that doesn't work it's most likely a bad rip.

    Only Wii Sports Resort (which I haven't spoken about yet). When I complete a game, it freezes. Again, I suspect it's at a stage where it would be loading something off disk.

    Can you link me to info on "alt dol" please? One of my major problems is searching. I can't seem to make the board search for a string and expressions like "dol" and "ios" are so common that a search is futile.

    Is it possible that some of these are IOS reloaders? I think that part of my problem may be that, since things like Wii Fit and Wii sports are discs which come with the machines, they're probably no widely used via USB loaders!

    I copied all the stuff off the FAT32 stick onto an NTFS USB Seagate HDD. It all seems to work fine. No rerips, or new downloads. My guess is the stick just wasn't suitable.
