    Question Problem exiting out of USB drive wii game - blank screen, not back to Wii home screen

    Playing one of my "backups" off the USB drive with no issue at all, loaded with wiiform
    and also I loaded it with config USB... to test out this issue - if maybe it was the USB application itself causing the problem... again no issues playing - problem is with exiting a game.

    Ok, so I am done with the game and I want to exit out and return to the wii screen or even back to the USB game list to play a different game.
    hit home, and get the two typical choices... chose the one for wii home.. sound of it being accepted...It doen't happen, instead I get a blank screen, yet my wii has power.

    Had to get off the couch, eeek! I know... and mash the power button for a few seconds before it turned red, and then restarted completely over at the wii menu.

    Too Long Didnt Read:
    What am I doing wrong? I want to exit out of my game, I quickly want to get into a different game via wiiform
    , or is this a known issue with softmodding?

    I think OP meant wiiflow, not wiiform being his loader.

    Two things could be causing that.

    Priiloader > Settings > return to:system menu
    The above should be set in priiloader.

    In wiiflow there is a setting to return to wiiflow upon exiting a game. If I read right, the correct forwarder needs to be installed for that to happen (if using the latest version of wiiflow, the channel ID is different than the one that has been used the last few years. Also I seem to recall seeing a bug in the wiiflow return to option in earlier versions) Use the channel installer app available with the latest version of wiiflow to get the correct one.

    yes, followed the guide from this site. I have been using wiiflow for my USB drive. All the games appear and work with no issue. It's just exiting and playing something different. Right now, I been hitting the home key on the controller, and just powering down and restarting - which only takes a second. But I would reallly prefer to just be able to exit a game and select a different game.
