Coverfloader + Guitar Hero 5/Wii Sports Resort Problems...driving me crazy :-(
I've got a 3.2E wii - I downgraded from a newer firmware. It also has starfall installed.
I am using coverfloader to load my games - the latest version which I think is RC7?
I tried to run guitar hero 5 and it just hung with a black screen.
The first thing I read was to install IOS56, so I downloaded and install the WAD. This made no difference. I then installed IOS249 from scratch and then the Hermes' IOS 222/223 from here - GAF's Wii Homebrew Tutorial: Hermes' Ios222/223 as another post I read said to try this.
I then tried launching guitar hero again and got the 002 error so I enabled the 002 fix in coverfloader.
Long story short the game still hangs at a black screen, this is also true for Wii Sports Resort.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've read of some games need alternate dols?
There are a bunch of threads regarding both games... search for them in the forum, amd post any questions there, those guys will probably know.
Your running the same firmware as myself, Why Not Try another Loader that runs From The SD Card, that way you can rule out the Loader as being the cause of the problem, and you have not got to install anything too drastic.

GAF's Wii Homebrew Tutorial: Usb Loader
Look At Heading "What To Download", and follow the link to download (v43b .dol can be downloaded directly from here.) This is the SD Version.
I can Play Wii Sports Resort With this loader, Firstly you need to get to grips with the way the loader works, if you simply press + button from initial Blue Matrix Screen it will ask you to insert a disk into Wii, find a couple of retail disks that you own, and go ahead and load them on.
From there you will see the way this works, using buttons A to select a game, Button 1, to select individual options for the game (002 Fix etc) Button 2 to save options for the game, Button A to Load & Play. Button B takes you Back.
It has to be worth a try!!

You have two issues.
1) You need to have hermes 222/223 installed and be using Coverfloader 1.2a Downloads - wiicoverflow - Project Hosting on Google Code
with the newest available boot.dol available.
When you go to load GH5, change the Cios to load from 223 and it will work. If you want a microphone to work have it plugged in before you turn on your wii.
2) Sports resorts: Do some research, but I had to update to 4.1u to get that one to work....

I've installed everything as quoted above, and yet I don't see anywhere to change the IOS to 223 using CoverFloader. I've even opened gamelist.xml, but did not find an option within it.
I'm running CoverFloader 1.2a, and I've installed Hermes 222/223.
I've updated the boot.dol as above.
I can select IOS 222 or 223 using uloader, but I still get the black screen when loading Guitar Hero 5.
My main question, though, is: how do I find the option to change the IOS using CoverFloader 1.2a?
I couldn't install the CoverFloader forwarder (got the -1022 error), but I successfully installed the CF channel from the .wad.
If it matters, I have a Korean Wii (v3.5k). 99% of other games run perfectly on it using CoverFloader.
Update: I just got Guitar Hero 5 to work using uloader.
I still can't figure out how to change the IOS using CF 1.2a, however.
Any help is appreciated.
OK, I think your issue is that you have the boot.dol in the wrong location. To verify, launch coverfloader and select the "i" in the top right hand corner. On either pg 1 or 2 there will be a rev # if it is not 1006 or higher, you go get the newest boot.dol 1022 that was just released today from the downloads page. After adding that boot.dol the revision will change to 1022.
In game settings, you should now have "Alternate IOS" or something along those lines. It is a new entry and will allow you to select 249,222 or 223.
Select 223 and you should be good to go.

getting wii sports resort to work in coverfloader
I haven't actually tried this yet, but I've ready a couple of different forums and this seems to be the best solution.
The problem with coverfloader is that it doesn't have an alternative dol load option, so what you need to do is install another loader such as "usb loader GX", then us this fix for wii sports resort.
You need to get the alt-dol file from the Wii Sports Resort ISO.
Open it in Wii Scrubber and go to partition2>sys >mpls_movie and save the player.dol file.
Rename the Player.dol file to RZTE01.dol
For NeoGamma enable the #002 fix setting and Enable the Alt_dol setting. Place the RZTE01.dol in the NeoGamma folder that should be located at the root of your SD card.
For USB Loader GX enable the #002 fix setting and Enable the Alt_dol setting. Place the RZTE.dol in the root of the SD card.
Both ways should work. Also I would update to cIOS38_rev14 which came out the other day.
Then open the game in in usb loader gx, after the first time you watch the wii motion plus video you do not need to use the alt_dol setting anymore, so you can go back to using coverfloader just using the err_002 fix and it should work.
