    WADs not loading despite using freethewads

    I have an NTSC-J machine, have been trying to get my back up copy of
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As A King working.

    First I loaded into my SD Card, used WADmanager to install it. When I tried to start the program on the Wii front page, it says it cannot run this channel.

    So I thought it must be because this backup copy was NTSC-U version. Having used freethewads to alter the region to NTSC-J and free-region, neither has succeeded. It always goes back to the first screen. No black screen, no error message. The Wii just restarts at the front page.

    Anyone know why? Many thanks

    Probably because it is a bad file, Homebrew revolves around files, files , files, files. If it won't work delete and re download the file as is. Just get a .wad J for your region or one that says all regions. Check out I know for sure that they have some on there because I downloaded that .wad and it was in Japanese.

    i'm having the same problems with loading wads. i used freethewads to get most of them on, but i cant seem to get strongbad ep. 3 through 5 to work. 1 and 2 are fine. i have a jap wii and have tried freethewads, the shizzle whizzle dizzle thing and both arent loading. ep.3 will make a channel, give me the "dont smack things in your house" warning, and then just a black screen. when i installed ep.4 i immediately get a message in japanese that forces me to the settings menu and i cant get out of it. after i deleted the channel, the wii went back to normal. can someone PLEASE help me. also, does anyone know what that japanese message i got said? my wii is 3.2J -sorry for the long post.
