    Skylanders USB Loader GX issue

    Hi, i was wondering if any of you would be kind enough to help me with an issue i'm haveing with my 4.3e modded wii. I have been playing my games through an external hd and have ben able to play original discs aswell. I bought my boy the skylanders spyro game. I unplugged the external hard drive and plugged in the wireless usb detector for the skylanders portal. The game works fine and sees the skylanders portal etc, but when i plugged the hard drive back in, the usb loader no longer works. it begins to load, then displays a short message saying something like reconfiguring IOS58.... etc? then the screen goes blank and the power light on the external hard drive cuts out. Can you tell me what is wrong and how to fix this please. many thanks for any help and your time taken to help me

    You have now made 3 posts regarding this issue, if u had read the site rules u would realise u have broken them, please read them now - site rules

    I have left this thread open for u and deleted your other posts, please be patient if someone can assist u they will do as soon as they can, thank you for your cooperation on this matter.

    This is a problematic game at the moment and I do not know if a solution exists, what i can tell u is if u have an upto date mauifrog softmod and priiloader set to block online and disc updates u can unplug your hard drive and plug the accessory in and play the game from disc until u have been given a solution.

    With the update-WiU1.1 patched the backup iso.
    USB-HDD as always right and the portal left.
    WII-turn, usbloader start, game start, wait until it asks for the portal on.
    Portal-on and start playing on.
    Allow start the portal, until the game asks. When the portal is already on, when you start the game, it will not work.

    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) 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]

    Hello andHappy New Year All,
    I to have a softmodded 4.3 wii with an external hd and I love it. On Christmasday my son and I had the same problem as everyone else trying to use the newSkylanders game with usb loader gx, or any other loader people may be using.The problem is when you connect the little wifi usb hub from the skylandersportal of power to the extra usb port on the back of the wii it will not workor sink as long as the external hd is plugged into the other usb port. Now thatwas big problem for us because the cd drive on our wii is broken, that's why Ihad to modd the wii and put all the games (+the new skylanders) on an externalhd in the 1st place. So yes I read all the stuff about how to change the cISOfrom 245 to 223. So I did and It WORKED!!! ...orso I thought Afterall that reading and tweaking I thought we had solved the problem until thenext day when my son told me that at a certon point in the game the portal keepturning off. So I took a look for myself and it was true. Now what
    !#@%!! - I knew it was not the batteriesor a sink issue, but what? Something keeps turning over and over in my mind...why did wii choose to use a wifi usb device and not just connect a usb cablefrom the portal to the wii??? My next step was to box up the skylanders gameand return it to the store. I exchanged it for the PCversion of the skylanders game - why...because it has usb cableconnected to the portal. The Xbox version has a cabled portal but Xbox willonly work with Xbox. The 3DS version also has a usb cabled portal but theportal is too small for two players. But when I connected the PC skylandersportal (with the usb cable) to the back of my son’s wii to my surprise theportal light came on. Next I started up the usb loader GX - it started!!!, nextI clicked on the game - IT STARTED!!!, The PC skylanders portal works on thewii 100% no problems at all YEAH!!!
