    Ultimate List of Troublesome Games and their Solutions!










    Hey Wiihackers, this is a list of all those games, that just won't do what they are told.

    That's right! Nearly every game that gives you trouble is listed here, along with the solution
    to get them to work on your Wii.

    For some of the games, I will provide a link to a guide. All credit goes to the Authors of the guides!
    Be sure to thank the Authors, in their guides.


    [SPOILER="Read here first, important information"]Please don't post here unless..

    You have tested the game with at least 2 of the preferred USB loaders.
    (USB Loader GX, CFG USB Loader, WiiFlow)
    And can fully explain the problem.

    You have already checked the game is on the list,
    and have tested the game with multiple cIOS.

    You will receive harsh treatment if you..

    Post your system check here.
    Post off topic, or NON contributory posts.

    It is Okay to post here..

    To add or correct something.

    Install the cIOS to slot 249. Load with Neogamma R9 beta 47 (Or R9 beta51) with "Block IOS reload" set to "method 2". Only works with WBFS drives ATM.

    So yes that means COD3 now works from USB and CSI should as well.

    Pretty sure that game runs fine loading cIOS250 [57] d2x-v6, and v7.
    Didn't think it was that much of a troublesome game to warrant putting
    on the list.
    Suppose it couldn't hurt though lol.
