First of all, thanks for this guide.
Really helpful, I must confess. (:
However, I got a question, if you don't mind. (Sorry if I sound like a complete n00b).
My Wii is hardmodded and yet I got a blackscreen on Shadow the Hedgehog right after clicking 'Start'. Is it because I haven't installed the GC launcher? Or is it clearly because of a bad burn/ISO (I used Alcohol 120%)?
I was never very sure if hardmodded consoles need the launcher as well, like softmodded ones. ): Once again, thanks, and keep up the good work!
Help,I cant format my new GC Memory card(its a third party memory card)
When I format it with Super Mario Sunshine it told me that the MC is damaged
Is it the Memory card or the Wii???(already tried the 2 slot btw)
Try running it twice in a row, without pulling the card out. I have to do that every time I run Wind Waker. I have no idea why it works, but it does.
I don't know much about hardmods, but I know that you do not need a GC backup launcher, you should be able to play your GC games thru the disc channel. If your Wii is softmodded then try with NeoGamma, make sure to install the cMIOS or NeoGamma may not be able to load the GC backup, or you may not need to install the cMIOS, like I said, I have no experience with hardmods.

Thank you in advance, and for the tutorial.
No, but unless you block disc updates with Priiloader most Wii games will try to force an update.

I have pal softmodded wii following the main tutorial on this site.
I have since followed the guide from the OP and could run originals fine, i bought some discs and tried a few backups only getting a single pal one to work. I then installed Backup v.02 wad and now when trying to boot any GC disk I get either a stack dump error or the wii gator screen just hangs.
Any ideas where I shoudl start?
Ok i reinstalled the Mios on 249 as advised in OP and have original GC games running again.
However im still unable to run back ups.
Got a little further and managed to get ikaruga and chaos field to boot up, but then when quitting and attempting to load the game using the exact same settings im getting black screen, its not showing that its attempting tp use the GC launcher. Just a black screen after booting up through neo gamma. It seems completely hit and miss for kme.
Hi I am having a problem and am asking please help me. I printed out all your instructions and followed them to a T. When I installed the IOS249 Wad it said OK and press any key to continue. I assumed when it said OK, it was installed, but when I try to install the cMIOS file and I choose IOS249 it does nothing. If I choose to use B on the wii remote then I get a warning about bricking the wii, so I know I do not want to do that. Is it possible even though it says OK that IOS249 did not install and do you know what I did wrong? Thanking you in advance for any help that you might be able to give me. It will be much appreciated.
