    Is there an IOS list or manual?

    Just wondering, if you're trying to troubleshoot a game, are there some details on all the IOS and what they do if you're trying to use different numbers? Like a list with comments for each?

    Take a look at the newbiez guide in my signature. What specifically are you trying to figure out?

    I guess I'm just trying to figure out if a game is not working well what other IOS should I try or what's the difference between all the IOS? For example Animal Crossing freezes occasionally using 246. Should I used 248 or 250 or what's the difference? Why all the different IOS?

    Base56 will run most games, base 57 is your next best bet. Then there are game specific guides also to trouble shoot. If your having issues with a game, make sure the game is good- verify it with wit WIT: Wiimms ISO Tools
    Code:
    wit verify game.iso -vvv
    or
    Code:
    wit verify game.wbfs -vvv
    if it does not verify, rip the game again.

    Tashier:

    Are you speaking of retail/original disc, or backup? Maui's answer applies to backup (any backups strictly rely on cIOS, aka Custom IOS). Retail/original disc, however does rely strictly on IOS. If you lack the IOS, it will not play --- freezing isn't a manifestation of this.

    This would be running from Backups. Using USBLoaderCFG it shows it's loading IOS246. Game loads but usually freezes up in a few minutes. I changed it to IOS248 and haven't seen any issues yet. But I did that not having any clue what I'm doing, just experimenting. AND, where would I see the cIOS?

    The most usual cIOS is 249. Sometimes 222. Others are used lesser than either. Since you can select the cIOS and seem to know what cIOS you're using, I'm at a loss as to the very last portion of your statement (or rather, the question part)?

    The latest configurable usb loader (mod) can automatically pick the cios for you, based on looking @ the game, and your CIOSes.

    Games freezing after launch are often caused by usb power saving technology kicking in. I'd recommend trying to turn this off and/or trying another usb device for testing. A usb key can be used temporarily for this purpose. If it plays OK on the second device, you have narrowed down the options.

    Are you saying use a usb thumb drive with the game on it or use it in the second USB slot on the Wii?

    Disconnect hard drive.
    Rip a game to a usb key.
    Put it in port closest to edge.
    Test.
