install d2xv6 with base 38 d2x cIOS Installation Guide
I'm wondering if anyone managed to run Xenoblade from HDD.
Yesterday I tried to run it but all I got was black screen.
I've recently softmoded my wii again to update and try new stuff and right now I'm using a FAT32 partition (earlier it was WBSF)
I haven't had time to try other games as I was eager to play Xenoblade fast
Other issue is I'm using IOS249 rev19 so that might be an issue but I can't try to change it as I'm at work right now.
I was using mauifrog tutorial but then I installed some IOS for Mighty Channel (that works BTW)
does slot that'll use matter and do i need some meta for this?
I've never updated my cIOS since I first hacked our Wii about 2 years ago, and I haven't tried Xenoblade yet but there are some games that just won't run and I'm guessing it's because my cIOS is too old.
My question is: is there a downside to installing a new cIOS? Will I have to redo/reprogram certain things? Could I lose some features? Guessing not but I just want to be sure before I do it.
Firstly, it's a good idea to create a new thread for these questions.Originally Posted by MrFido
cIOSs usually don't have many disadvantages - d2x is a great pack that should support most games (I've never had any troubles with it). The only bad thing I can think of with cIOSs is the "hassle" of installing them, and even that takes a few seconds
The newer cios will work better than your outdated ones. If you replace them with the same bases I'm the same slots then you will not have to change anything else. If you run a syscheck that show the bases then you can be sure to use the same bases in the same slots.
And.....reviving and old thread is no bueno.

Thanks very much isoguy and skellinator.
First, I just wanted to say that I've been on forums like this one for ages and I always thought it was better to keep the same questions on the same topics in existing threads if possible (even if that meant reviving an old thread) so that people searching for related info will find less threads and more concentrated info. I know when I'm looking for something with keywords, I prefer to find everything in one thread (including subquestions from various people) but I guess it's just me. Sorry about that.
If you could just guide me in the right direction: when I go to HBC, I don't see a SYSCHECK button, so I guess I don't have it (but I really thought I could see the list of IOSs and cIOSs I had... anyway). So I need to install SYSCHECK, and then figure out which IOS/cIOS are missing in order to play XYZ game, then download such IOS or cIOS (as a WAD?), go to WAD Manager and install it? Am I missing something?
Thanks a lot!
those 2 links should get you going.
Great, I had already seen those two pages but at least now I know I'm looking in the right place.
If I already installed Xenoblade (and I got an error message), will I need to uninstall/reinstall Xenoblade once I've installed d2x? Or should it just work?
