USB Portal version
I too had problem connecting the Power Port to my softmodded 4.3E wii. In my case the wireless dongle was bad and not even in a new wii worked. I took it to the store and exchange it for a new one. Using the 223 in cfg did the trick and my son could finally play the game.
What i realized after was the power portal drain the batteries in a 3 day use!!!
I then read that the PC version of the game brings a usb version of the power portal. I went to the store again and change the wii version for a PC version.
It works great. My son can now play in the Wii and in the PC, and the best of the two worlds is that it does not need batteries any more.
Thanks to all
so do i need the usb wireless reciever like it says to play this game? how do i get past that alt dol? why do u need it anyway?
How come you didnt read post one that explains all of your questions?

Also in the guide here it says do not turn the portal of power on wait until the game does it for you - my kids are currently playing it on an unsoftmodded wii and it prompts you to turn the portal of power on - if you don't it just cycles through instruction screens asking you about changing batteries etc. You have to turn it on manually.
I'm asking all this before i soft mod as this is so far my kids only game (besides the mandatory wii sports) and I want to copy it on to hdd before it gets scratched up - however if it is going to be a problematic game to play from hdd maybe i should rethink softmodding for now? Although I guess i can still just play it from the disc loader channel?
p.s: I have asked this question as part of another question on the newbie forum - please don't tell me off for reposting it here - a wiihacks staff member suggested it :) thanks don't want to get in trouble!
Sounds like you're over thinking it, and trying to talk yourself out of softmodding.
The reason Wiiflow isn't included in this guide is because I don't use Wiiflow, and
nobody had reported that they had skylanders working with wiiflow at the time
the guide was written.
Softmod your wii by following the "softmod any wii" guide, then come back here
and follow the instructions on how to set up the game.
Everything is working now. After using cios223 for this game only. CFg loader
I get stuck at loading screen. Game works fine in battle section, but hans getting into the story. Any ides?
What configuration are you using? Are you using any from post #1?
I got the PC portal working with a hard modded Wii Wiikey 2. I used the 223 load with usbloadergx.
We have been playing and everything works great. We go to level 17 and now 2 of the champions are not recognized. The other 4 champions work fine.
Any one have any information on this. "Skylander toy on the portal does not work" is the message I get on the screen. I can put another character on fine.
These worked earlier in the game. No, they are not just tired. The game gives me an error.
like to say thanks for the skylander guide got the boys working just did what the guide said and worked first time
