Hello all, I have the Wiikey Fusion installed correctly to my Wii and have been playing my backups for several months without any issues. However, my .iso copy of Project Zero 2: Wii Edition PAL (on the SD card) works fine up until the point you choose "Play" in the Wii System Menu channel, it will hang on a black screen indefinitely.
My Wiikey has the latest update 1.5
My Wii is NTSC and Project Zero 2 is PAL, but this shouldn't be an issue with the wiikey fusion, right? My other PAL games work fine.
I'll have my hands on the japanese version in a few weeks and I will try again with a copy of that.
Should I try switching OFF the update blocker and assuming that's the problem, allow an update? Hmmm updating an NTSC system with a PAL disk doesn't sound right. I will wait a little bit. Here's a post from a similiar problem by AdasThong:
"the instruction book says there should be an update comfirmation screen but that dosn't appear. Can I delete the HBC or whatever I've got that's causing that not to happen?
edit2: I remembered how to access the priiloader. I switched off the update blocker. When I then clicked on the disk, the update option appeared. I tried updating... the update failed... now it dosn't even recognize the disk.
(Expletive deleted...watch the language please)
I have had the same issue. Have you figured anything out?
By the way, does the Wii key ordinarily allow you to play backups even on newer Wiis?
I tried loading the game on an external hdd, and had the same issue of turning to black and then hanging. I tried to load the game on a back up disk, but it didn't work because my Wii is too new...
What version System Menu? While I'm not entirely familiar with Wiikey Fusion, last I knew SM 4.3 prevents out of region game playing on hardmods.
I also see SNES_Master has been hard at work :)
Mine is 4.3 softmod updated through a waninkoko updater. I just can't figure out why the game goes to black. I have Pikmin 2 that works just fine which I imported from the UK which is the same region as the Project Zero 2. Also, all of my Japanese import discs work too.
Run a SysCheck and post the results as a reply to this thread. You would only be able to play this game on the softmod side of your Wii, definitely won't work on the Wiikey Fusion @ SM4.3
I've just tried running syscheck, and it seems to get hung up on IOS242. I'll leave it on for a while to see if it makes any progress later.
That's most def not a wiihacks guide having cIOS 242. If you have HBC installed, follow this guide from Chapter 1, Part 1 (where it says for users with "Softmods with Homebrew Channel Installed." Then continue to end.
I'll have to go through that again when I've more time. I hacked my Wii quite a while ago, and it runs everything from import games, to games off of a HDD using USB loader GX. It's just too bad for this one little wrinkle. I really want to play the undubbed version of Fatal Frame 2. Anyway, I'll post again once I do everything over again from step one and then test the ISO on my WBFS drive.
