WAD load problem - black screen
I have a pal wii fw 3.3E with cIOS rev 15
When i install virtual console wads with wad manager all goes well. When i click a channel i get the pre-title screen. I press start. Then i just get a black screen and have to restart my wii.
These are all Ntsc wads but i tried setting their region to "free" with freethawads. I also tried setting them to PAL.
When i start wad manager i get to choose between using cIOS 249 and 250. Not sure why but i tried installing with both these settings.
I read some threads with the same problem and some suggest this has to do with the fw, that IŽd have to update to something higher than 3.3E
Some suggest that it might be the modchip (i have wiikey installed) that is blocking it.
I'd like to get some pro advice since i dont like thought of having to update my fw.
install ioses 38-53-55 (never uninstall)
ok i will try that!
out of curiosity:
why can i have several ioses? what are they for? will i have to reinstall the cios afterwards? i'm confused bhy all this ios and cios stuff.
also when i load Wad manager i get to choose which ios/cios to use. which one should i choose and why?

One thing that it didnt explain though was:
Will i have to uninstall my cios before installing ios 38, 53 and 55 or if i can just install them on top?
Does anyone know?
no, cios and ioses are completely different just install them (never uninstall ioses)
great and quick response. i learn a lot in 30 minutes
even though i learned all that...
I installed the ioses 38, 53 and 55. The problem is still there though!
In anytitledeleter it now says i have a lot of ioses..... ending on 28, 33, 35, 37, 36, 249, 250, 38, 53 and 55 (in that order).
My question about wether it matters what ios i choose in the beginning of wad manager remains unanswered so i don't know if that has to do with anything...
any more ideas?
at the beginning you should always use ios249, not that it will do anything if you do otherwise, it just wont work....not to bother you, it changes nothing if it works... now rty to use dop ios to install latest ioses 38-53-55 (needs wifi).. and make sure you apply the trucha bug to them, by pressing at installation... also they may be bad wads..

once again thanks!
and just to be on the safe i don't delete the old versions of 38 53 and 55 before doing this, right?
