    Which ISO to use when installing

    I have installed several wad games through HB with no problems but have always wondered which ISO should be used. Mine always defaults to 249 but I have always changed it to 1036 because it sounds like a more familiar number to me. Should I be concerned in which one I use? Just wondering, Paul


    P.S. You guys are terrific on here, I actually donated to the site today I love it so much. without you guys I would not be surfing the web and playing VC Donkey Kong!!!!

    IOS249 allows backup games to work. Then you have custom ios' called cios which help games work. When you install cios', you install those as 249. Any ios thats over 200 is a non nintendo ios. Each game requires a certain ios to allow the game to run. So if a game uses ios38, you need ios 38 installed. If your playing a real copy game that uses that ios, your fine. Its when you run that copy in a backup launcher OR use a backup copy of the game, where things can get tricky. Doing it that way, not only will you need ios38 installed, but youll also need cios38 installed as 249 or else that game wont work. It can get even more confusing but stick to the basics until you run into problems. To easily answer your question, ios249 is used.

    Jasons34 is correct. I0S249 is a custom Ios that allows you to play backup disks.
    My number 1 rule is if its working don't worry about it.
    I found to play some of my originals i would have to switch to IOS36 but i've fixed that by ripping them all (backup and original) to hdd.
    LISTEN TO ME!.... at your own risk.T&C may Apply.
