OK... I'll try to be short... But I think my story is quite specific, and I am not THAT noob.... I'm a gifted noob let's say :-PI purchased LoZ:SS today, and as many of the users here, it's been a while I touched my Wii. I didn't care about softmodding anymore, so with all my intelligence, I restored the wii to its former state (you know, the first back up a softmodding guide asks you to do), as I thought doing this was "virginizing" the wii (a term I learned after realizing it's not what I had done at all). And then I upgraded the wii to 4.3. My wii's not bricked, it works. I start the game, it works. I get a black screen the moment I leave the first building we appear in (i.e. I leave Link's bedroom and then I open the double doors to go outside : black screen). I CANNOT pass this point. So I was wondering if that was the "brick" thing....Got Super Smash from a friend to softmod my 4.3. I followed step by step and successfully the guide Softmod ANY wii from Mauifrog. so now my wii states it's a 4.1u. I installed the cios 249d2x v6.Before I softmodded: didn't work.Once I softmodded: doesn't work. with the original start up (from wii's menu) and from Neogamma. So, basically, every step-by-step guide, I followed them, and it didn't work. Right now I'm formatting a HD into fat32 to try wiiflow and usb loader gx. Will it work? Dunno.... will keep you up to date, I'll be able to tell tomorrow, if doing the image doesn't take too long.Help will be GREATLY appreaciated.... I'm really exasperated, first time ever I can't solve a problem....P.S. It's sooo annoying to test if it works, cuz every time, I gotta go through the intro which I cannot skip, loll... -_-'
Sorry dude. No-one is going to want to read that wall of text.
Can you at least break it up into some paragraphs?
FWIW, I did the softmod any Wii guide (works like a charm, btw). When I copied my LoZ:SS disc to the USB harddrive and tried to run it through CFG loader, the screen went dark and then reset back to the Wii home menu.
I gave up and ran the game from disc, whereupon it thanked me for the purchase? That was weird.
Anyway, I went back to launch again before asking for help on the external drive mode, and now it looks like it runs just fine.
Is that a thing that might happen, the game has to run from disc once first? O_o
this has been driving me nuts all day - i get the game started and it hangs at the connect a nunchuck to the wii motion plus accessory screen (i have a wii brand motion + controller) when i get to this screen my controller stops responding and if i remove batteries, it refuses to re sync with the wii - all 4 lights flash a few times and it powers off
i have the 249 and the 250 cIOS from the first post, have tried both neither works, same problem
i am using cfg v70
a burned backup runs fine through neogamma but id prefer to have it on a hdd
any help would be appreciated
lol just noticed, this is only my second question in over 2 years :p
I have a retail copy of LoZ:SS
Problem: blackscreen when I leave the first building (the double doors to go outside once you get out of Link's bedroom)
Restored the wii to its former state (first backup you do when you softmod)
Upgraded to 4.3 via Nintendo. Still doesn't work. same blackscreen.
Softmodded again via Softmod ANY wii guide. Installed cios 249d2x v6. Still same blackscreen.
Only thing left to try now is to make an image and run it via USB. But I'm kinda pessimist. I'll try to do it tonight.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
P.S. @bmarlo Hope this version is short & sweet! ;)
See above for full story :P
for those of you having black screen issues when first loading the game using USB Loader GX, try the following in your Game loader settings...
1) Set Alternate Dol to 'player.dol'
2) Launch game, watch MotionPlus video.
3) Set Alternate Dol to Off.
4) Play Game.
I also have a question however! ...
All working fine (bar a few freezes during gameplay). I've just got to the Earth Temple entrance and it will not go any further without freezing (fades to black screen then sticks there forever).
Am using GX Loader v2.3, cIOS 249  d2x v6 (have also tried cISO 250  d2x v6).
Any ideas? :rolleyes:
Sorry, no answer to your question. BUT thanks alot for your instructions. Had never used motion plus before and that was the reason I kept getting a black screen+reboot when launching with usb loader GX (on the latest "mod any wii" version). Now it works, great!! I'm off playing, see ya next week ;)
@smithhr try reripping the game from the disc. Yu may have gotten a bad rip the first time. If this does not work go to my d2x guide and try dling the d2x v7 wads

Change the load IOS in your loader to 248 or 250. It will wok.
