Thread: Problem with using cIOS --- not iso --- 249

    Problem with using cIOS --- not iso --- 249

    I'm having a problem loading games that should use ios 249.

    I'm new to the small details of soft modding a Wii but I'm pretty sure I did everything correctly. I used mauifrog's Softmod Any Wii guide and followed it exactly but every time I try to play a game from my HDD that should run with ios 249 I get a black screen. It seems the game still loads but with no video. This includes games like New Super Mario Bros., Mario Party 9, and LOZ: Skyward Sword. I tried reinstalling all my ios but to no avail. I tried loading all the games with both USB Loader GX and Wiiflow. Other games such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl work fine. Here's my syscheck.


    Like I said I'm pretty new so there may be something small that I overlooked. Thank you in advance.

    is "New Super Mario Bros" an out-of-region ?
    if not, try the game running under CFG_[248]_v70. not[249].

    I thought Nintendo didn't use slot 249. Didn't it get stubbed out years ago to do away with homebrew. I think the new mario runs on IOS53. don't know about the other games your having trouble with.

    Nintendo has never used 249, or anything > 200. They have always been for cIOSs. Nintendo will stub them out at a Nintendo Update, but they can be remodded.

    249 is based off of 56, based on syschck:

    Yes, originals are IOS-dependent (<100). If you lack the IOS on the retail disc, generally you'll get a black screen. ANY and all backups via softmod run on cIOS (Custom IOS), which as llaffer says can be found in slot 200+ (and you can lack the IOS all day long in such cases with a backup and it'll still run).
