For Glee and Black Ops you need to change the cIOS in the individual game settings to 250 and save the settings. For example, in GX click on the game, then click settings, then change the IOS line to 250 and save.
As for the games with different regions (if that is the problem), you are correct that because you are softmodded you can play them. It does require some tweaking in the settings of your loader though. Change the video settings to Force NTSC and see if that fixes the problem.
I can't thank you enough! The two fixes you suggested worked for 99% of the issues we had. With a back ground in computers (I was going for both my linux and MS network engineering certs), I usually like to take my time and learn systems and what makes them tick. Pressure from my family to get games working forced me to seek a quicker resolution to these issues.
As for the 1% not working. Chicken Blaster is still giving me issues. I applied the forced NTSC, the color looks great, but before it complete loads, it goes to a black screen and shows and error message "Define localization_US or set NDEV to EU mode". I didn't see a "ndev" setting that I could change.
As is Sniper Elite works, but the color is slightly off. Tried applying the forced NTSC, only to have it lock up the next time I tried loading the game. Also tried setting the ios to 250, same thing, it locked up and I had to reboot.
The only other issue that the family is telling me about is in Who Wants to be a Millionaire. In party (multi-player mode) they couldn't select answers. Not sure if that's a softmod issue or not, but thought I'd mention it.
Other then that, everything else works fine. Guess I shouldn't be in such a rush, and install only few games at a time, so I can spend more time tweeking them. Again thanks for the help!!!
