    Help needed updating an old SoftMod (Twilight)

    Sorry for making a new post, wasn't able to find what I was looking for through search - probably more because I don't know what to look for than anything else (definitely not an experienced hacker), but a nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

    I bought a wii (ntsc, u) this past summer and used the twilight hack to install hbc, starfall, gamma loader, and USB Loader 1.5. Also downgraded the system to 3.2u. I followed the instructions and used the files outlined here: Nintendo Wii Softmod Tutorial

    Everything has been working great - been able to backup and play copies of my discs on the USB drive.

    Now lately I've been having issues playing newer games straight from the disc (a retail copy, not an ISO burn). Specifically I've been having problems with Ghostbusters and UP. I'm guessing I'm going to have this issue with any of the newer games. I see Ghostbusters has been problematic for a lot of people, but with my system already being hacked, not sure what the appropriate way to fix it is. Whenever I try to start either of these two games from the disc menu I immediately get a black screen and need to hard restart the wii. I tried ripping the games and playing the backup and get the same result.

    I'm sure there's updates I can make to fix this, but am unsure what to run/install with the modifications i've already made to my system. I'm guessing I need to update certain IOSs? Do I need to update my system menu somehow? I've tried searching the forums, but was unable to find anything specific to my situation.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    System Menu doesn't have to be updated to play newer games. And your correct, you need the IOSs the games need to run. In my sig is a link for "IOSs games use". Find your game and the IOS then use NUSD to download the IOS. Then use wad manager to install the IOS.

    You may also want to look into getting yourself new loaders. NeoGamma r7/8 and the newest revision of USB Loader.
