OKay, I hadn't saved the 249 setting. Now I have saved it and it's much more stable, but still falls over occasionally just at the end of a competition.
My next one is Wii Fit and Wii Resort. When entering a new character in Wii fit, we got to the point where the height and age had been verified and the screen goes white and it was staying white. I assume the game is trying to do a load here. It was consistent. Switched to IOS 249 and we got past that point, but now it consistently freezes just as it's about to start the initial athletic balance tests.
Is it likely that there's a solution, or is this just the way it is with softmod?
