Metroid: The Other M - Working Here
As Many of you Know the Newest Title in the Metroid Franchise has hit stores.... Upon Looking at the DVD and Installing it to the HDD for backup, Metroid the Other M is a Dual Layer Wii Game. Which will need a little tweaking to get working with a Soft-modded Wii and Hard-modded Wii's for you DISK Loaders....
Instructions for Softmod
Dual Layer Games Need additional IOS to run other than the Standard IOS249
1a. If you dont Already you need to install Hermes IOS 222 and 223: HERE
2a. Now when loading the .iso with your loader you will need to select IOS 222
3a. If using GX then when you click on the .iso click settings and switch the IOS from 249 to 222
4a. If non of this works and you still get the freezing in game then try the following...
5a. MAKE SURE you have the latest IOS56 loaded (linked to in thread)
6a. When you are loading the game use 222 or 223 (NEXT PART IMPORTANT)
7a. Force the ISO to YOUR region... I.E = ((NTSC = F-NTSC)) ((PAL = F-PAL))
8a. I know it might sound stupid but it has solved from problems with users Other M in the IRC as of late...
1b. WIIFLOW you can do one of two things... Use the 222 Version of Wiiflow or set the settings like in GX on the .iso if you want to stay with the 249 Version of Wiiflow

If you are ripping your retail copy make sure you have installed cios38rev17+ or set your loader to use ios222 or 223 then rip the game.
If yours is not a backup of an original retail disk and it doesn't load with ios222/223v4 its most definitely a bad iso dump.
If you do not have the IOS set Correctly in your loader the game will/should freeze after the training course in the beginning of the first Main cut-scene.

Dual Layer Games Need Special Burning
With dual Layer disc's you need some special burning settings. You need to tell the computer where to put the layer break in so that the dvd burns correctly... There are many ways you can do this. If you are used to setting this in your favorite burning application then all you need is the Layer Break Number = 2084960
For ones that are not Familiar with it here is another way you can do it
**Make a .dvd file for this to auto put in the layer break for them. open up notepad, copy and paste the following:
Metroid_ Other M.iso
**Save that as a Metroid_Other M.dvd instead of .txt (just type .dvd on the end)
and if it gives you trouble then rename the iso to remove the space between other and m so: metroid_otherm.iso and change the .dvd file to read:
What Comes on the Disk:
RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v513 = This little Beauty is System Menu 4.3 (If you have Priiloader make sure you have the Skip Disc Updates hack enabled, or scrub the update partition out)
The Game also seems to use IOS56 - If you have not updated this IOS and you are having problems then update with this .wad via WADManager
