    Problem Installing .wad Game

    I'm trying to install a few .wad files I've found (mostly VC/WiiWare Games, specifically Final Fantasy III but I have the problem on other NES/SNES .wad's as well) and I'm running in to some problems. The .wad installs successfully via Wad Manager, but when I go to run it from the channel, it either gives me a blank screen and shuts off my controller or says "This channel cannot be used" depending on what iOS I install it with. I have updated my softmod within the last few days with the "Guide: Softmod ANY Wii". I have tried using "FreeTheWads" to put the .wad in the proper region to no avail! Any help would be appreciated.

    System Menu 4.1U (Not downgraded, that's what it is natively)

    Why not buy the games in the Shop Channel? That would be the easiest way. (Be aware, if you're trying to play pirated games, we cannot help you).

    Post a SysCheck so we can see if you modded your Wii properly.

    Looks good. What game(s) are giving you this error and what IOS did you use to install them?

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Final Fantasy III - Tried on iOS 240+ and iOS 30 to no avail.
    Super Mario Bros. (NES) - iOS 9

    Posting more failures as soon as I gather info (verify which iOS I installed them on, and check to see they are the right region)

    Install them with iOS 236

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Do the ones you bought in the Shop Channel work? If not than the IOS the games run on are probably messed up.

    I have other vc and Woodard games that I have installed that work fine, but it was before updating the softmod. Should I reinstall the ups pack in that guide?
