Thanks, it seems to be running fine now. I figued out how to point it to my emunand and all the saves show up in the browser. I still havent been able to figure out how to copy those saves to my wii though. I figured you select the install option, it seems to work fine but when I load up my zelda game my saves are not there. I do have a blank save on the wii before running the app like you suggested. The other option is to copy the save, but when I do that it asks for the path of where it wants me to copy it and I don't know the path to get it on my actual wii nand.
Maybe I will try to copy it to my SD card and use the wii system menu to copy it to the nand......
Edt: nevermind, it is working.
I had 2 emunands and apparently got them confused. Not only that but I was apparently even more confused thinking all my game saves were on my emunand from my USB loading play....they were apparently on the wii and I over wrote my New SMB Wii save that I just got all the hardest star coins on DOH! Now I got to get the world 7 and 8 coins over again damnit
I hope someone here may be able to assist me. I've followed the USB Loader GX guide and every time I load a game from GX, the game loads perfectly but as soon as it starts to the Wii remote warning screen, it desyncs my Wii remote. I used CFG loader and it doesn't do this. Is there a reason for this?
Edit: Managed to resolve the issue.
So here's the deal...
- I had an old softmod, then I used the Softmod ANY Wii guide to update it.
- According to this guide, I also install DIOS MIOS on IOS236 and changed the settings in USB Loader GX appropriately.
- I converted my WBFS drive to fat32 using "wbfs2fat" (checked the cluster size, it's 32kb). Then, I converted certain Gamecube games with DiscEx according to this guide and put their folders in a new "games" subdirectory in my hard drive.
Now, I can see the Gamecube games in my hard drive, but it only allows me to play them by copying them to the SD card. Any ideas on how to fix that so I'd be able to play them right from the hard drive?
(Wii games work)
You need USB Loader GX 3.0 r1200 or higher (the guide you followed has 3.0 but it's not r1200+)
Here you go, use the one for ios249
Thanks, worked like a charm, though now I have another problem. I'm trying to play certain games that should work according to the compatibility list (The Official DIOS MIOS (lite) compatibility list), i.e. Sonic Heroes or Pokemon Colosseum.
I converted all my backups with DiscEx, then loaded it with the USB Loader GX you just posted (on IOS 249), using the version of DIOS MIOS posted in the OP of this thread (on IOS 236).
Just to let you know, certain games (Pokemon XD, Sonic Adventure DX etc) work perfectly. The problem is, other games either lead me to a black screen without going through the DIOS MIOS logo (Mega man anniversary collection etc), or simply display the DIOS MIOS logo and then go to a black screen (Sonic Heroes).
I was wondering if there's any solution for that, as these games seem to be compatible according to the list?
Edit: apparently Sonic Adventure DX also freezes, on the "Now Loading..." screen.
Is it out of region GC games? some Out of region GC games does not work with GX yet. Try wiiflow v4.0.4 or CFG Loader r49. Change your USB Loader GC game settings: video to PAL 480i for out of region games (try all 3 PAL video options) and see if it works. It may not work with GX but it should work with Wiiflow and CFG USB Loader v70 r49.
Adding to what candylove has said, it could also be a bad rip, and if you use DiscEx -c ( which I believe compresses or 'scrubs' the game ), some games aren't compatible with that. Some games may also require a disc inserted to work.
After an hour or two of aggravation I am here posting...
I had my wii already softmoded and was using usb loader gx with about 5 games. I was now taking the "next" step to put smash bros melee, metroid prime and wind waker on the same hd. Trying to make this thing work for the last hour at least walking from the tv to the pc with hard drive and sd card in hand...
I am still able to play the wii games via usb loader but still the usb loader is not "recognizing" or seeing the gc games in the usb1:/games/ folder. Not sure what specifically I am doing wrong because my file structure matches perfectly with the tutorial.
Should I clear everything and just start over again?
Also had some other questions.
1. "3) Nand Channel Emulation and change to full" Couldnt find that in the usb loader settings
2. is it possible to place gc games at sd:/games/ instead of usb1:/games? I wanted to only plug in the hard drive to play wii games and play everything else off the sd card.
This might be a silly question. The USB Loader GX I installed which came from the "softmod any wii" guide came in GX 3.0 r1180. How do I go about updating it to r1204? I tried doing through the update function in GX loader menu but it didn't find any updates. I downloaded the file from your post for ios249. Do I place the boot.dol and boot.elf file into the folder containing GX 3.0 on my SD Card?
