Thread: Cios problems/usb loaders/bttf

    Cios problems/usb loaders/bttf

    Hello, folks, I've browsed this forum a good few times and got some great information but I now have a problem that I needed to register for and ask a couple of questions...

    I've been trying to get the back to the future game to run - and I've tried many ways to do so. I have a 3.3 wii, softmodded. Was using usb loader gx (latest version) to load my games then I noticed it wouldn't load BTTF (crash/reset after mission select). I did some looking online and found maybe I needed to update my cios files so I changed them to dx2 using the homebrew installer for those files (d2x custom installer)

    Here is what it says on the cios installer

    CURRENT IOS : 37 v2070 (says this at the bottom of the screen on the ios selection page)

    Here's what IOS it says I have installed in each slot:

    222 : IOS 222 REV 4
    223 : IOS 223 REV 4
    249 : IOS 249 REV 65535 (DX2 CIOS FILE)
    250 : IOS 249 REV 65535
    254 : IOS 254 REV 65281

    I've read a LOT of forums/topics saying that it's important to update your cios files in order to load this game but having done this (I think) I'm not really sure where to go from here.

    I also saw a lot of people saying it works with one loader and not another etc etc and I've tried cfg, gx and wiiflow and none of them worked. I also tried all programs using the option to stop the disc from switching/re-reading cios (I can't remember what this option is called, I'm sure people will know - it's to solve the problem of games like this/csi etc where they make the wii reboot)

    I've never been able to get any of these games to run using this current cios files, and no matter what I do the wii always resets/spins the disc when it gets to these problematic points (anything beyond the title screen, in the case of BTTF)

    Would really like to play this game and anything else new that may be affected by this problem so I would be really grateful if anyone could give me some advice on how to go about doing so ? I thought maybe it was because my wii is 3.3 but then I've found topics where people on 4.0+ are having the exact same issue.

    Thanks in advance, hopefully someone can help me !

    Oh, and I bought my wii recently and it was already softmodded so I don't really know much about what's going on "under the hood" or what's been done to it, I've just tried to do myself what I've seen people suggesting. I may well be installing the wrong cios or "doing it wrong", so I thought I'd best ask for help before I do something stupid ;-)

    I'm not sure what information is important regarding what's actually installed on the wii cios wise, so if any more information is required please point me in the direction of what's needed/how to provide it. Would be great to get this sorted out - Thanks :-P

    You should probably start by updating your softmod with the ANY Wii guide (link is below in my sig). After that your game should load with no issues using cIOS 248.

    It's All important Miskatonic, Read and Follow Mauifrogs mod any wii guide and remod your console, Yes you can start over, read read the guide a couple of times download the files for your region. They will overwrite whatever is on your unit atm.
    Stick to one guide. If you have any questions ask in the guide post.

    If you start over, You can make a NAND backup, Install bootmii as boot 2 if possible. you will have HBC latest version running on IOS 58. You will update your System to 4.1 this is a stable version. ( later versions are N's attempt to stop Piracy ) not neccessary. you will have all the cios you need. You can choose which loaders to install.( CFG 70 and GX 2.2 my prefs) You must install priiloader, Buy and formatt a hard drive, Fat32 is Good.Use Wii game manager, Or just RIP your originals straight to your Hard Drive with CFG / GX loaders. It's not difficult. Go On you know you want to do it!

    Okay, so i've done all those steps and now my wii doesn't boot with the SD card in (perhaps I need to remove something that's been created in the process?)

    Furthermore, NEITHER the cfg loader or the already installed GX loader will load, they just result in a black screen, pause, then a reboot to the main menu.

    Tried the USB drive in both ports, no dice. Good stuff :-(

    Any suggestions ? :-s

    *system menu is reading 4.1e and everything was fine, checked all the md5 files and all the wads required were installed. Priiloader is on there, too, but that doesn't seem to allow me to do anything as it says it can't access NAND on usb.

    you need to remove the old loaders you had previously installed along with the config data for them and reinstall via the app pack from mauis guide.
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site ( or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]
