    Metroid: The Other M - Working Here


    [SPOILER=SPOILER INTRO VID]
    [/SPOILER]

    As Many of you Know the Newest Title in the Metroid Franchise has hit stores.... Upon Looking at the DVD and Installing it to the HDD for backup, Metroid the Other M is a Dual Layer Wii Game. Which will need a little tweaking to get working with a Soft-modded Wii and Hard-modded Wii's for you DISK Loaders....


    [SPOILER=Instructions for Softmod]
    Dual Layer Games Need additional IOS to run other than the Standard IOS249

    1a. If you dont Already you need to install Hermes IOS 222 and 223: HERE
    2a. Now when loading the .iso with your loader you will need to select IOS 222
    3a. If using GX then when you click on the .iso click settings and switch the IOS from 249 to 222
    4a. If non of this works and you still get the freezing in game then try the following...
    5a. MAKE SURE you have the latest IOS56 loaded (linked to in thread)
    6a. When you are loading the game use 222 or 223 (NEXT PART IMPORTANT)
    7a. Force the ISO to YOUR region... I.E = ((NTSC = F-NTSC)) ((PAL = F-PAL))
    8a. I know it might sound stupid but it has solved from problems with users Other M in the IRC as of late...

    I tried this on the WiiTard release and the movie froze at the exact same point as it does in the game, the movie plays fine when tested using a working copy.


    1b. WIIFLOW you can do one of two things... Use the 222 Version of Wiiflow or set the settings like in GX on the .iso if you want to stay with the 249 Version of Wiiflow
    2b. If and when you launch the game with 222 then you should have no problems.


    If you are ripping your retail copy make sure you have installed cios38rev17+ or set your loader to use ios222 or 223 then rip the game.

    If yours is not a backup of an original retail disk and
    it doesn't load with ios222/223v4 its most definitely a bad iso dump.

    If you do not have the IOS set Correctly in your loader the game will/should freeze after the training course in the beginning of the first Main cut-scene.

    [SPOILER=Instructions for Hardmod (Disk Loading)]
    Dual Layer Games Need Special Burning

    With dual Layer disc's you need some special burning settings. You need to tell the computer where to put the layer break in so that the dvd burns correctly... There are many ways you can do this. If you are used to setting this in your favorite burning application then all you need is the Layer Break Number = 2084960

    --

    For ones that are not Familiar with it here is another way you can do it

    **Make a .dvd file for this to auto put in the layer break for them. open up notepad, copy and paste the following:
    LayerBreak=2084960
    Metroid_ Other M.iso


    **Save that as a Metroid_Other M.dvd instead of .txt (just type .dvd on the end)
    and if it gives you trouble then rename the iso to remove the space between other and m so: metroid_otherm.iso and change the .dvd file to read:
    LayerBreak=2084960
    Metroid_ OtherM.iso


    [/SPOILER]

    What Comes on the Disk:

    RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v513 = This little Beauty is System Menu 4.3 (If you have Priiloader make sure you have the Skip Disc Updates hack enabled, or scrub the update partition out)

    Also

    The Game also seems to use IOS56 - If you have not updated this IOS and you are having problems then update with this .wad via WADManager

    NOW ENJOY!!!!

    working on 4.1 E, wiiflow 2.1a2, video forced to pal, cISO249 rev 20 base56, splitted to 2 x 4gb halves with wiigamemanager as .wbfs files,
    looks good, gameplay is ok, pointing scan is annoying sometimes
