Perhaps those are out of region titles? The symptoms you describe are somewhat dissimilar, but worth looking into... there are settings on the loaders to force a game to your region, try that.
I am very new at this. I softmodded my wii using the 3.1-4.1 softmod guide and thought I had it all figured out. I was wrong. I installed the gx usb loader and configured my hard drive and loaded some games. Of the five games I've tried, Call of Duty works fine, but the rest (Super Mario 2, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, Rayman Rabbids 2) when I try to load them, the screen goes blue and the game flickers out of focus and to the side. It eventually just stays blue. What am I missing here??
could be a region problem if your wii is pal and the games you try to load are ntsc games. go in the settings to each game and force the video mode suiting your region.
blue is from your tv without a signal i guess not from the wii
Thanks all. How do I change the settings on the games? Sorry-noob.
the two ratchets. find video settings /mode, you are on ntsc? force ntsc you are on pal? force pal
maybe that helps too, gx loader settings
Awesome. Thanks, works great!
