Thread: Blank/black screen problem

    Blank/black screen problem

    I currently have a wii with a drivekey installed and soft modded to 4.1.

    I can play a handful of backup games and .wad files installed via .wad manager.

    Though it seems that recently (since patch 4.2 came out) I cannot seem to play some of the more recent games such as super punch out, maramusa, and contra rebirth(wad).

    What happens is I can put the disc in the console and it reads int eh disc channel even plays the theme song. Then when I push start game it goes to ablack screen and just stays there.

    This same thing happens when I load Contra Rebirth I can install cleanly, and when I click on the channel the title and the theme music comes out. I then proceed to press start and it just turns to a black screen and stays there indefinitely.

    My old wads and other backups still work. Should I suspect that it is jsut a bad burn/download that is causing this?

    I am using the same disc and burning style from whenever I first modded my Wii.

    Thanks for any support and input.

    This means they may be missing IOSs. Have you tried installing IOS53 which is needed by Contra Rebirth. Also try installing IOS38, IOS50 and IOS55.

    Ok I will do that. Just two questions not sure if it is answered on the board or not.

    1. How do you know what IOS's a certain game requires?
    2. Is it safe to just install all the IOS's I can to make sure every game is compatible?

    Thanks again

    1. IOS38-53-55.rar
    2. Yes, providing they are non-cioscorp fail versions and they are just game IOS. Any IOS in my mediafire is safe (sig)
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
