I forgot to tell but I tried that earlier and it doesn't help. The screen is in the center when I'm on Homebrew Channel or any loader and it gets changed when the DIOS MIOS splash screen pops up. Changing the settings to move the screen doesn't fix the problem, as it only changes the screen position when using the loader. It is off by the exact same amount when the DIOS MIOS splash screen pops up again.

The screen doesn't move anywhere when launching Wii games since they don't use DIOS MIOS to work. I tried to post longer posts to explain this but seems like they need to be accepted by moderators and not all of them get accepted?
If I'm the only one to have this problem then it must be something with my own Wii. I've changed nothing when it all worked and it came to this (again). I feel like if you guys know what IOS to use for uninstalling the DM wads might help. Because reinstalling a DM wad over an old one doesn't fix either.
Which IOS did you use to install DM? Did you use IOS236? Also, it might be a bad rip too. Do you get this with multiple games?
I used IOS236 to install DM. It happens with every gamecube game I launch, not only SSBM. I thought if there's something wrong with my IOS236 but that doesn't really make sense because after the initial installation it worked fine. I got this exact same problem 1-2 months ago and I tried to fix it by installing RVL mios v10 and after that the DM again (2.8). It didn't work but then I did the same with WAD Manager 1.7 since I read here it is preferred and the problem got fixed.
EDIT. What is the folder called source for? It is included with DM downloads. I've had it in the root of my SD before but deleted it in the hope it helps.
source contains the source code that was used to create the DM.wad. If you're not a developer, you can ignore/throw away the contents of that directory. All you need is the .wad, DMToolbox.exe, and the .dll that is needed by DMT to run.
Have you tried using Wii Mod to do the installs? That's my WAD Manager of choice when updating DM. Yesterday I went back and forth several times between DM and DML to test out one of the games for another thread. I had no problems with going back and forth with them.
I formatted my HDD with EaseUS and created the partitions again. Don't understand why but the problem got fixed. I installed DM 2.8 with MMM and it worked, then installed 2.9 with Wad Manager 1.7 just for a sort of test and it works still.
During the process of finding the problem I lost the ability to play Wii games from the NTFS partition but that issue is out of topic so not more about that.
That's why we (well, at least I do) recommend having a single FAT32 partition anyway. Properly installed Wii games can be played on FAT32.
Hello people I have just followed this guide after a very long time because I felt like updating my entire softmod as it didn't work correctly before (dios mios would rarely ever work and just used to give a black screen without doing anthing and my hdd didn't get detected by usb loader gx until I had gone through trying it like 10 times but I digress).
That was with DM 2.3/2.4 but now I've tried both 2.9 and 2.8 using the usbloader gx 1213 from this guide and it still gives me the same problems, there's no way I can even get the dios mios screen to appear and either it's a blackscreen or my wii shuts down.
Any ideas for this? my HDD is correctly formatted and has a 32k cluster size and I tried to restore the launcher to default settings, still having problems.
Is the hard drive in the first (optimally the only) partition that is set to ACTIVE and PRIMARY? (not logical)
If the answer to all that is yes, then it could be the game images you have may not be good. Find a program to generate md5 hashes of files and search for the md5 of the games in question to ensure that they match.
Hey, what's the changelog for DM 2.9?
That neat little think that looks like "click me" (labeled a spoiler) right at the top of the guide --- think that may yield a clue? Looks like nobody's ever changed the title of thread yet, I will remedy.
