Most games work - some don't
Alright, let me see if I can rundown the senario so far.
Got a new Wii 3.3U
-downgraded to 3.2U
-installed Twilight Hack + HBC
-installed Starfall + all options
-installed some cIOS and IOS
-using MenuPatcher to run some games
I can run over 30 games without any issues (except for WarioLand Shake It - slow video)
but these seem to not run regardless of which method I use
DBZ Budakai Tenkaichi 3
Mario Party 8
Tiger Woods 09
Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party
Need For Speed Underground
Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
LEGO Star Wars Complete Saga
Brunswick Pro Bowling
All have been burned under the same conditions, same discs. Most all are from Mininova ESPALWii.com torrents. It appears most all have been scrubbed. I did install the 3 IOS's suggested for NFSU, but then read that they only work for modchips. I also tried extracting the main.dol and patching it, but I don't think I had a 1:1 copy. I'm posting this list in hope that there is a common issue causing them to not work. I'm gonna keep searching this and other forums in the meantime.
Not all games will work with the soft mod, you might have to bite the bullet and go the chip
Here is what games work and don't work with 0.3:
Backup Launcher v3 - WikiTemp
These are very random games not work ... only because they're working on my un-chipped box just fine.
Are you using DVD+R's? I'm guessing so, try -R's.
Dump & Burn discs | 3.3 / 3.4 Firmware FYI | Wii Disassemble | WiiClip Install
Wii - 4.1U - WiiKey 2 - USBLoader GX - SNES9X GX, Genesis Plus GX, FCE GX w. cover flow mods
360 - Resident Evil S.E. - iXtreme LT 1.1 - JTag - FreeBoot 0.032 9199 Dash - NXE2GOD, XM360, XeXMenu 1.1, Flash360
PSP - CFW 5.00m33, 16GB MSPD | DS Lite - DSTT w.1.17a r12, 8GB SDHC
thanks for the list, it looks like only one game won't work. but all the others show as green. What i have noticed with WORKING games is I get a FULL green screen right before the game laods. With the NON-WORKING games I get a PARTIAL green screen (bottom half) and then a black screen. I can eject the disc and press reset to get back to the channel menu. If I can't get those games to work, oh well... I really can't complain that 30+ games do work.
I'm using Verbatim DVD-R. I had tried Verbatim and Maxell DVD+R and they didn't work. All the working games were burned at 16x. I tried burning the non-working games at various speeds. For example, Tiger Woods 09 was burned at 2x, 4x and 16x and none worked. I did notice that most games were PAL, so I will try the NTSC version to see wgat happens.
First of all, 16x speed is way to fast for burning Wii games. Try 2x speed.
Second, Since ou have a USA Wii, Use NTSC games. The backup loaders can't run games from other regions.
I burn 4 x speed , always good.

most every game has been PAL and they work just fine and all the working games were burned at 16x. Any particular reason why I shouldn't if they do work?
Though some say AR: Let's go to the City doesn't work on 3.2 but works on 3.3
Animal Crossing works just fine for me with 3.2U
