I've just signed up and I'm having trouble getting my pc version portal of power to work i know it works with the game because i tried it on another wii can some one help me?
Try waiting until the game prompts you to insert the portal.
What cios should I be using like 249 for the game

This first post of this thread answers that question...
Ok thanks I solved it I needed cios 223 thanks for helping
I would like to buy this portal.(Wii)
I read there are 2 versions, wifi (Wii) and USB (PC).
I should have Hermes cIOS 223 [37-38] v4.0 (not 100% sure it is base 37-38, will check)
Will Both Wifi and USB work fine? The wii version also has USB? Which one to buy?
The Wii version has a wireless usb dongle?! ok to connect to the 2nd USB port (1st has HD with backups)?

Better start off by wishing everyone a very merry Christmas....... and a great new year to all.
Now for my typical, (oh god) question at Christmas..
My wii is a 4.1e that was soft modded a couple of years ago using dogeggs guide, (sorry if that is spelt wrong).
There is a 500gb external running that has many title installed onto it, and for the most part 99% of them work faultlessly.
Wii is using cfg v6 (possibly) the one with the red switch when cfg boot's.
First I tried booting using 222mload, this is the norm for most titles, except a few that required a certain other setup. After reading many post's I gathered that to get the portal to be recognized it is required by cfg to use 223, but the problem is the game loads perfectly fine, but I am met with the "unable to locate portal), (this is the wired portal supplied with the giants pack) tried unplugging and replugging, this seemed a fruitless task as the portal is lit and is obviously working as expected.
So my next port of call was to leave the portal plugged in to the other usb slot next to my HD and boot the game from the original disc, and the game runs perfectly..... this may be okay for the time being but knowing how weak wii drives are I would much prefer to get it running from HD.
I gather that many people have managed to get this to work via USB HD, And I now know that the game runs fine from the original disc, so there must be something on the original disc that is required by the wii to load correctly via HD.
After reading through this post http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-games/94...-portal-3.html I see that I could update to http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...-cios-wad.html and all should be well.
my curiosity is getting the better of me, if I have tried 222 and 223 already why would re-installing this other one make any difference.
Some minor preliminary info,
priiloader is already installed, all updated are blocked via online and by disc.
along with bootmii to boot2.
Many updates have been installed along the way including 250 for black ops.
shopping channel needs updating for the third time but that's another story that I'm not really worried about right now.
Much appreciate any help, I have wadmanager 1.7 available along with many other apps via SD, and homebrew 1.08 (dont want to update HB after reading some minor problems).
I can also upload a syscheck if required.
thanks guys for any help

post a syscheck - its probably your cios need updating but if u r using rev 6 of cfg loader then that will need updating too
