Thread: Games become corrupt and stop working!?

    Games become corrupt and stop working!?

    Hi, bit of a weird one, 2 games i have New Super Mario Bros. and Zelda Twilight Princess both will randomly just stop working in usb loader gx and neogamma.

    Basically they will work fine for maybe a few days or so then all of a sudden they wont work and will either freeze usb loader and bring up the dump screen or show a black screen, requiring a reset.

    Funny thing is the iso's are fine and if i remove them from the hdd and put them back on using WBFS Manager 3.0 they will start working again.

    Ive tried removing the cfg files and all the other files artwork etc, everything related to the loader and it makes no difference, only way to get them working again is to reinstall them. Also deleted the loaders wad files and reinstalled but no luck.

    Strange and annoying, could i have a corrupt file somewhere on the system, what could be causing this? BTW Zelda is a backup and nsmb is a download.

    Thanks

    You could try reinstalling your cIOS, sometimes it gets a bad install. Also make sure you're on the latest cIOS38rev14 in case you aren't yet.

    Run the installer package again through HBC the same as you did before. It will overwrite the current installation.

    Hi, was gonna attempt this last night but got a little bit confused, sorry for being an ultimate newb at this but how do i reinstall my cios files?

    I have cIOS 222 v4 installer and cIOS38r14 installer on my SD card that were left over from the guide i followed. Also have Trucha bug restorer.

    Is it as simple as doing the guide again, adding/removing and patching some of the ios's??

    Thanks again.

    No need to remove anything, installing a cIOS will write over any already on your console.

    Make sure you remove all GC memory cards and controllers before doing this.

    To reinstall cIOS38Rev14 run the installer through HBC, choose ios249 to run from, and select network installation. You'll need to have your Wii connected to the internet to do this.

    You could also try reinstalling your cIOS202 from the hermes222/223 v4 package if that didn't work. It supports usb2.0 for homebrew. Again use ios249 to run from, select cIOS202 and install as ios38. This again requires that the console have a working internet connection.

    Thanks Ithian, was easy from your instructions. Doesn't seem to have fixed the nsmb problem tho. Thought maybe i had a dodgy iso so have removed it and dl'ed another one, im using a pal version now, console is pal so maybe this one will be better.

    Ive reinstalled Zelda tp and so far no problems, will update in a few days.

    Thanks

    I thought it was his hard drive was spinning down, because I first experienced my hard drive spinning down while playing TP.

    Could be Stomp. I never think of that first for some reason.

    Check that idea out if you're still having problems, j0n, and for NSMB make sure you've run through the guide to setting it up in the Games secton if you haven't already. Depending on a few factors you might need to patch a thing or two to get it running.
