Cannot get Mario Party 7 to work!
I cannot figure out for the life of me what the HECK I'm doing wrong. First of all, yes, I do own Mario Party 7, but the disc is scratched, and I can't really play my original disc anymore. That's why I'm going nuts trying to play my game via backup disc or usb right now! Aside from Donkey Kong Country Returns, this is the only other game I've ever had to try and play a back up of, and Donkey Kong Country Returns worked fine.
Since I can't play my original disc of Mario Party 7 (well, I can play it...but it gives me errors all the time because it's scratched), I'm trying to play it with a backup disc or load it via USB. I've been following all the guides on here, but nothing seems to be working for me. I've tried playing the game via Neogamma, USB GX, and CFG USB loader.
Here's what happening with each of the three things I've tried:
- Neogamma gives me a green screen, and then restarts the Wii.
- USB GX doesn't show my game (though it could be I don't know how to use USB GX). However, the USB stick does show up in the settings menu while I was poking around, so I know it's formatted okay. Is there something I'm suppose to be doing to get my game on the USB to show up?
- CFB USB loader says I have to install a custom 248 IOS or something?
If anyone can help me get Mario Party 7 working, I would love you forever! Please help me!

First off do a proper softmod using the Softmod ANY Wii guide. After following that guide, follow the fat32 guide for formatting and loading the game to your drive. Link to the fat32 guide is at the bottom of the Softmod ANY Wii guide.
Hi, thanks for the response!
My Wii is already softmodded. I'm not sure if I used that exact guide, since I softmodded my Wii a long time ago. However, I did follow a guide from this website when I first softmodded my Wii (it might have been an earlier version of that guide). So, do I still need to follow that guide since my Wii is already softmodded?
Also, my USB stick is already formatted to Fat32 with a cluster size of 32KB.

Yes you should follow the guide again, a lot has changed and been updated. And there is more in the fat32 guide than just formatting...you really should read it....

Alright, thank you! I'll go ahead and softmod my Wii again then. Hopefully that fixes my problem. I'll post again if that doesn't clear up my problem.
EDIT: THANK YOU SO MUCH! Re-softmodding my Wii did the trick and the game is now working! Once again, THANK YOU!!!!
