DML pack updated with 2.2
DML pack updated with 2.2
Hello, i tried searching the forum for a solution for my problem, before posting, as i didn't find anything about it, here goes:
I have one of these new Wii that doesn't have the GC ports, and i really want to play some GC games on it, my question is, is there a way to use the classic controller pro to play??? or is there any other way to make a GC controller work on it??, cause everywhere i seach i see no one talking about these new Wii, only the old ones, the only thing i found was another homebrew (devolution) that will implement Wii remote support, Dios mios worked on my wii (the homebrew), i started F-Zero GX, but couldn't play cause the lack of means to control the game
Hi there. I am pretty new to modding the Wii, not sure exactly what Im doing half the time, but I recently followed the soft-modding guide, and the guide for loading wii backups off a USB drive. I had NO problems with either, I was able to load Wii ISOs off my WBFS HDD in both USB LoaderGX and NeoGamma, worked perfect.
Feeling comfortable to move on I was directed to this 'guide to Dios Mios Lite' for playing GC backups from my SD card. I followed it to the end, but whenever I tried to load a GC game from my SD card i was given the "fatal error: apploader size is zero" message. I was unable to figure out the problem and soon gave up and decided to play a Wii game, but now problems!! All my USB loaders freeze my Wii when they try to communicate with the WBFS HDD. I installed the latest versions of the loaders but no luck.
I thought that maybe it was a problem with my HDD, but it loads on my computer fine, and everything worked fine right before following this guide. Does anybody have any idea what happened? Did installing the Dios Mios Lite wad interfere with something? I would very much appreciate any help ):
Edit: SOMEtimes I am able to get the HDD loaded, but hardly ever and only after resetting my wii and trying again over and over after it freezes
Did you install the latest DM or DML (both are 2.2)? If not, you can download them from here: Downloads - diosmios - DIOS MIOS (Lite) - Play your Nintendo GameCube disc backups on Wii from an USB device or SD card - Google Project Hosting (DM for running off of HDD, DML for running off of SD).
Then, you need a booter that will accept the latest DML. Sounds like you're using something that isn't supporting 2.2. I'd recommend the latest CFG-mod: Downloads - cfg-loader-mod - Configurable USB Loader MOD - Google Project Hosting This latest version will detect the version of DM(L) that you're using and use the correct setings.
Thank you for the fast response!
I just installed DML 2.2 through this guide, so I downloaded the CFG loader mod you linked, but it it just a .dol and Im not sure where it goes on the SD card?
rename that file to something else, then place the downloaded .dol file in this directory, named "boot.dol".
Once that has been done, then you can load the app, press "1", go to "Updates", and choose "Program Updates" to download and install the latest version at any time if you have your Wii connected to a network.
I just replaced the boot.dol and put the SD in my Wii. When I launch the cfg USB loader it just hangs at the 'cfg' logo and my Wiimote loses connection. This is the same thing that happens when I try to mount my HDD in LoaderGX and NeoGamma. Those apps launch fine, but as soon as they check for the HDD they freeze.
EDIT: I just got USB Loader GX to boot fine. I am now guessing that it IS my HDD and maybe it's just unresponsive sometimes? It turns on and lights up fine, my computer can mount it, so Im not sure.
ANOTHER edit: OKAY, it HAS to be that my HDD is acting wonky. after LoaderGX worked I tried cfg again and this time it booted! I was able to load a GC game without the "apploader size is zero" error. One small problem though is that after the Nintendo logo the screen goes black for a minute or two before loading the intro movie. I would imagine this is because SD cards are slower?
Thank you so much for your time and help, llaffer! Much appreciated!
Hi, I have this problem with my DIOS MIOS LITE (2.2). I can't seem to play any games off my SD (Metroid Prime 2 and Mario party 7 were tested). Whenever I try to play, it just freezes at the DIOS MIOS splash.
Will this play saved files without a gamecube memorycard?
Practicaly why i want to install it.
