    Games wont load

    Tomb Raider Underworld, and Tomb Raider Anniversary are not loading from Wiiflow, or USBLoader.

    They were loading just fine before, and quite frankly I have no idea what is causing them both to suddenly not load.

    I thought of the other problem I had before, and the solution offered had been to re-do the mod using the guide provided here and so I did that today.

    The guide is fantastic, and everything is working just as the guide said it would.

    BUT

    I am still having the same problem with these two games, in spite of having used this guide. Perhaps Tomb raider is supposed to run under a different ios? I have no clue. But here is my syscheck, just in case anyone finds it useful to help me continue Tomb Raidin' on my wii.

    Spoiler



    EDIT: I am not sure if there are other games that don't load, but so far most of my other games are working fine. Smash bros brawl, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Metroid Other M, Sonic Colors, Mario Bros Wii, and Resident Evil 4 are all fine so far, I will continue to check all my other games and if I come across any that are doing the same thing as Tomb Raider, I will let you guys know as well.

    Your SysCheck looks in order. Backups rely strictly on cIOS (Custom IOS) and not standard IOS (which originals do rely on). You may try cIOS 222 instead, provided you were using another (typically 249 in a lot but not all cases).

    Thank you.

    I tried 222 and yes it does work, so I am immensely grateful. I am curious about one thing though...

    I noticed that Configurable USB Loader had no problem loading them at all, yet WiiFlow and USBLoaderGX kept going black or returning me to the system menu.

    For future reference, and pretty much just for knowledge... Any particular reason as to why CFG could read them and GX could not?

    No idea. For any lurkers who may run into this, perhaps you should post the versions of the loaders and what region your backup is.

    Well, I'm running these on a 4.3U NTSC (I think that's the right way of saying it's USA) but the backups themselves are PAL versions so that might have caused the issue. In case anyone's wondering, yes I do own the PAL version of both games, legally (due to a misinformed purchase at an electronics store during my trip to Africa)

    As far as the loaders:
    USBLoader GX Version 3.0 r1209 - was not running them, but ran perfect when I changed the cIOS to 222
    WiiFlow Version 4.1 - was not running them either, same deal, ran fine with 222
    NeoGamma R9 beta 56 - Unfortunately, I did not even attempt to load them there, simply because the interface of this program scares me lol it feels like something is ABOUT to go wrong, every time I open that program. I know it's just me.
    Configurable USB Loader Version 70r51 - Ran the games fine by default.

    I hope this info helps someone, if anyone, in the future.

    And, again, thanks, Nightstah; your quick response and well-informed suggestion cleared me of my troubles.
