    I'm experiencing the same issue with GX that the OP is. Loader loads fine, I can import my original DVD games, and download covers. I can scroll through my library, choose different layouts, and select and rotate the boxes. But when I then go to play any of these games I just get a black screen.

    I have Configurable USB Loader working just fine on my 4.3U Wii. It's able to import my games, config, and run them.

    But I would still like to get GX working. CFG may be more stable and better supported, but GX functions more to my liking. The interface is just cleaner, more intuitive, and more "wii" like. And, no, there is no CFG theme that makes it look and behave like GX does, that I've been able to find. Themes are just skins that change the look of the screen and some of the more rudimentary layout of buttons... they don't alter the underlying model of how the UI works.

    CFG drives me absolutely nuts when I'm trying to scroll through my library. I'm always launching games when I don't intend to. Trying to remember, on the fly, how to config a game instead of launching it, is frustrating.

    With GX, not only is the layout better (the fan-shaped cover flow is awesome... something a CFG theme can't give me), but I seem to be able to navigate the library much easier and not inadvertently launch games when I didn't intend to. And getting to the configs/settings is much less frustrating (the buttons are right there on the home screen, after all, instead of some hidden keystroke I have to try to remember like CFG; is it "1", or "2", or "+"??)

    So, from a technical point of view, I suppose it makes sense for folks to drive people to use CFG. But from a user perspective, there are definite reasons why folks might still prefer GX.

    you must not have the proper cIOS....

    My Working Configuration is...
    USB Loader GX v2.0 "Latest Rev.
    HBC 1.0.8 running on IOS58
    cIOS249 v17 base 38
    cIOS250 v21 base 57 "for black ops"


    It works great, if your cIOS's don't look like that than try to load a game in the Settings of USB Loader GX with another cIOS other than the one you are currently using.

    Because it looks better lol, you only see it for a few seconds!!!
    Also, when you load CFG, your game covers appear on screen, just press the up and down keys to change the way the covers are displayed.....even the fan style!!

    No, you're not reading me @b8ssjunkie. It's not simply that it looks better, GX *functions* better.
    Like I said, everything is much more intuitive. With CFG, I'm constantly launching games when I didn't intend to. If I just want to change the launch configuration for a game, I have to remember some hidden button press (not that it's a particularly difficult keystroke, admittedly, but you don't use it often enough to make it second nature... even now I'm sitting here questioning whether it's "+" or "1").

    There's no intuitive way to import a DVD. Again, it's some hidden button press that you can never remember.

    Sometimes even pressing "B" launches the game (the B button is pretty much globally understood to be "cancel" in Wii-land... but under certain circumstances, it causes CFG to launch a game).

    With GX, all the functionality is right there as buttons on the home screen. No remembering. I just have to find the right interface button with my cursor and click. I haven't inadvertantly launched a game yet (which I would remember, because I would get stuck on a black screen at the moment).

    And, no, CFG's "fan" is definitely not the same as GX's fan. Not only is GX's fan nicer to look at, but it's nicer to use. It's always clear which game is selected. With CFG, it launches whatever game the cursor is over, regardless of whether that game cover is currently in the middle of the fan. That makes little to no sense to me. The cover that's in the center (and rotated most perpendicular to you) should *always* be the game that will be affected by your user actions.

    Not only that, but you pointed out one of the *most* frustrating things with the interface yourself. Pressing the Up and Down keys to change the layout. I'm *constantly* changing the layout when I didn't intend to. I just don't see why changing the layout is functionality that needs to be mapped to such prominent keys. If *anything* deserves to be "hidden" under a non-intuitive user action, it's changing the cover layout. Myself, I'd prefer to set it and lock it. I'm willing to go through a dialog or two to change it if I desire. Or, like GX does, offer buttons in the interface I can click to change the layout.

    But I realize all of this is subjective. Others have different opinions and reactions. And maybe my reaction is hightened because I'm still in the midst of trying to get everything configured. So, at the moment, I *don't* just "see it for a few seconds". I spent the better part of my weekend in it.

    I might have a different opinion was all that is over and I can just relax and play games.

    Wow..... so did you get it working?

    Ok then, apologies if i've offended you somehow, I was just saying (in my opinion) that if you had a loader that functions properly, i.e loads a game , then you would only see it for a few seconds. Surely that is what we all want anyway. We want to play games not look at pretty pictures.

    I'm sorry but I can't help you as I don't use GX, as you've probably guessed I use CFG, so I cannot offer any advice unfortunatley although I have seen other threads on here with similar problems. I'll have a dig around and try to give you a link or two that might help.

    I've had a quick look at this and perhaps this might help, or perhaps you've already tried that I don't know.

    If GX functions better then why the issues? Just saying..

    Anyhow, it's all opinion. and just so you know there ARE themes and other customizable options for CFG. the only reason people tend to steer others away from GX is because of the recent incline in GX issues. CFG has just been a safer option in most cases. I hope you got it figured out though and are currently enjoying your wii again. If not though you should just give cfg a shot and play around with it.. it couldnt hurt anything and stressing less might be nice.
