Loaders, cIOS, Wii Sports oh my
Yes, I'm a newbie - my first post.
Got a Wii - softmodded using this guide.
I followed every step.
Added a USB hard drive and am using USB Loader GX -used this guide as reference.
I even set it up to 'boot'/ forward to bypass the main wii menu and just load USB Loader GX. (As a side question, I can't figure out how to get back to main menu now without going into priiloader and making change again - clicking wii menu just brings back to USB Loader GX.
OK, so, I loaded Wii Sports Resort (NTSC) - watched video regarding motion plus, started playing (as guest, not using Mii). When I went to restart, now I get Error 002. So, I'm trying to read the MANY posts about this issue and it just ends up leading to more questions for me which I am having difficulty answering.
OK - so here is the tutorial:
The questions I have:
1. Is Neogamma just an alternative to USB loader GX? Do I have to use that loader to play wii sports resort?
2. It references downloading and installing cIOS38 rev13B. When I did the original tutorial, it did a whole bunch of things (installing wad's etc). I get lost when referencing cIOS or IOS despite reading about them. can you have more than one installed?
3. Even after reading the post, I'm not clear if WSR can be played from USB drive
4. Last multi-part question - and more general. a. When using a USB hard drive, are the save files for the games stored on the wii itself or on the hard drive? b. If I create a Mii in main menu, does it show when in USB loader(s)? - also gets back to the question of how do I get back to main menu on Wii.
OK, I think that's enough. I really did try to understand this stuff myself but it gets overwhelming trying to find the answers amidst all the posts.
Thanks in advance.
