For generations, the Skylanders have used magical powers and weapons to protect skylands.
But now, an evil tyrant has frozen them and banished them to Earth.
Only you can put them on the Portal of Power and bring them back to life to save Skylands forever.

Hi, i'm new to this kinda stuff, and am struggling a little bit. I'm trying to get skylanders to work (recognise the usb portal) and am having trouble. i have followed the mauifrog softmod any wii guide and all was ok. I have, installed 223 (37-38).wad file etc. Do i have to go into the cios folder in the homebrew channel and install it there aswell? I'm a little confused and any help would be greatly appreciated
Use CFG as your loader, select the game, then press 1 to get to the game options. Change the IOS to 223, save, then launch the game. Do not manually power on the portal, let the game do it for you.
EDIT: And please dont just randomly post questions in places around the forum where they do not belong. We have to keep some organization here. You posted in a thread that is 2 years old and about wii remotes not working. I have moved your post to the appropriate section.
thank you very much - everything is much appreciated! Now, obviously, i am no expert! but, if it works with 223 in cfg, should it not also work in gx? is there a problem with the config files? should i delete the config files and let new ones be installed? also, if you install an ios and/or cios as a wad file, i take it you do not have to install them through the ios installer aswell? and lastly, how do you know if you have the latest revisions/editions of usb loader gx/cfg/neogamma etc? If i posted a system check, will all of this information show up and you be able to point me in the right direction if required? Apologies once again for posting issues. thanks.
I'm sorry I'm new to the forum. I am trying to figure out how to connect my portal to my computer. Do you have any advice in this area? My son would really appreciate it
Got this from the skylanders website..
You probably need to install the driver mentioned.Q: How do I use my Portal of Power?
A: From your Lair, click on the Portal Not installed and follow the directions. You'll need to download the driver and install it. Ask your parents for help. If you'd like further instructions on installing the driver, click here.
