If i load them using cfg usbloader they are in color so its not the hdd. Any ideas? I have tried using different ios's.
    Just go into your global settings and set the video to force system default, or you can do it for each individual game that is out of region.

    Ive got USB GX working, but Im missing cover art. how do you add the cover art?

    also, I would prefer to have USB Loader GX as a channel instead of having to go in to HBC everytime I use it. how can I do this.

    thanks !

    Hi

    I've softmodded my Wii following mauifrog's guide http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    In your guide you offer a choice of three different packages for different cIOS. If I've understood the softmod guide, I've got all three so can you advise which package I should use?

    You also say to use IOS58 for the forwarders or channels to work. Do I have this already from following the softmod guide?

    Once I get it working, can I put USB Loader GX on my USB HD and remove the SD card? Obviously I won't be able to boot to USB Loader GX unless I leave the HD on, but if I start it manually after powering up the HD I presume that would be OK?

    EDIT: Actually reading through the last few pages seems to have answered most of my questions I think I just need to install USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder_4_0_AHBPROT.wad to get it as a channel and then put the apps folder with USB Loader GX in it on my HD. I've attached my syscheck below in case it shows something that means I need to do something different, but I clearly have IOS58 installed.

    Spoiler

    It sounds like you figured it all out, syscheck looks good.

    Yeah, I think so thanks. Hopefully shouldn't have any problems installing it as a channel.

    Looks like I need some help after all

    I can't work out how to install a WAD! I can boot to priloader but that doesn't seem to be the right app (I can install it from Load/Install a file, which puts it in the Homebrew Channel, but I want it to appear as it's own Channel) and if I put the BootMii folder back on my SD card I can boot to that too, but that doesn't seem to be the right app either.

    Also, it says in the guide that it forwards to:

    SD+USB:\apps\usbloader\boot.dol
    SD+USB:\apps\usbloader\boot.elf
    SD+USB:\apps\usb-loader\boot.dol
    SD+USB:\apps\usb-loader\boot.elf
    SD+USB:\apps\usbloader_cfg\boot.dol
    SD+USB:\apps\usbloader_cfg\boot.elf
    SD+USB:\apps\WiiFlow\boot.dol
    SD+USB:\apps\WiiFlow\boot.elf
    SD+USB:\apps\usbloader_gx\boot.dol
    SD+USB:\apps\usbloader_gx\boot.elf

    So if say apps\usbloader_cfg and apps\usbloader_gx are both on the SD/USB, how does it decide which one to forward to?

    EDIT: I'm also confused about the paths to use for images, etc, as the first post says to use sd:/images, sd:/config, whereas the GXGlobal.cfg I've got shows:
    covers_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/images/
    covers2d_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/images/2D/
    coversFull_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/images/full/
    theme_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/theme/
    theme =
    disc_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/images/disc/
    language_path =
    languagefiles_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/language/
    titlestxt_path = sd:/apps/usbloader_gx/

    So should these folders in fact be under usbloader_gx and can I just change all the sd: to usb: to run it from my USB HD?

    Use wad manager to install the wad. Once installed, the channel will find the app to launch as long as you have it in one of those spots listed. Just copying and pasting the gx folser into your apps folder will be all you have to do.

    Thanks, that got it installed as a channel and I can load it from my USB HD without an SD card

    I edited the .cfg to change the SD: to USB: but it turned out that my HD is designated USB1: so I changed the paths from within the GUI and that's OK.

    I'm having a bit of trouble getting it to boot to USB Loader GX though. If I set it to Installed File in Priloader, I just get a black screen when I boot with just the USB HD. With my SD card with the BootMii folder on it, it booted to that but after I deleted that folder it boots to a black screen with the SD card in as well. I went to Install File and clicked on USB Loader GX again and it says it installed OK, but if I select that and try and load it instead of installing it it says "Missing binary" and if I select Installed File from the menu I just get a white screen and have to powerdown.

    EDIT: I also can't get the two NTSC games I've got (Dreamworks Super Star Kartz and Wii Party) to load and just get a black screen. I've tried setting to to Force PAL50 (I'm running on a CRT TV via composite) and also doing this plus enabling the two video mode hacks but still I just get a black screen and the Wii appears to lock up.

    I'd really appreciate it if anyone can help me get USB Loader GX to Autoboot, as that will make life so much easier over Christmas

    Do I have to use an SD card for this to work and if so, what needs to be on it. If not, do specific files need to be on the USB HD or should it Autoboot from the internal memory?

    Right out of the priiloader guide:
    Set priiloader to autoboot to specific app

    This is useful if you have kids and don't want them to mess with anything like the HBC, System Menu, etc. This is mostly used to boot into loaders.

    Get the XXXX app forwarder .dol and put it in the root of your SD card.

    Here are some app forwarder .dol files:

    Wiiflow Forwarder .dol
    Cfg USB Loader Forwarder .dol(needs IOS58)
    USB Loader GX Forwarder .dol
    WiiXplorer Forwarder .dol v5
    uLoader Forwarder .dol
    JoyFlow Forwarder .dol
    SaveGame Manager GX Forwarder .dol
    postLoader Forwarder .dol
    (You don't need to rename these to boot.dol)

    Power up the Wii while holding the reset button to boot into priiloader. Use the D-pad on the wiimote and choose "Load/Install File"

    Choose the dol file to install

    Now, go back to the priiloader menu, go into settings, and set autoboot: to installed file.

    OPTIONAL: You can set the "Retun To" option to Autoboot, the wii will now autoboot to "installed file".

    You can later reverse this by going again to priiloader and set the autoboot option to- System Menu.

    Thanks. The link to USB Loader GX Forwarder .dol is down so can I just use the one in the AllInOne package (/wad/ForwarderDOL/ForwarderV4.dol)?
