    preloader doesnt work with 3.4

    follow this to go to 4.1 and after that you can install preloader

    I prefer PAL version of Deal or No Deal, TV Addicts, Countdown, Millionaire etc that are based on UK versions of the show only.

    As stated, the only danger is with the updates which I not only have blocked but I remove prior to installing anyway. Belts and braces...as my dad used to say
    Quick question for you GGXena if you don't mind - are you using Millionaire version 1? If you are and you are loading it via USB Loader - what settings do you have the game on? I've been racking my brain trying to get the settings right on this and so far I can get a rolling screen and that's it.

    Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

    I want to be absolutely 100% sure I'm doing everything right.

    1st let me say that I don't like to use a preloader, I prefer to boot the Wii straight to the main page. And I'm not using any burned discs -- I only use USB loaders and games installed to an external HDD.

    With that said, I made sure to do these two settings:
    • USB Loader GX: Settings > Game Load > Video Mode > Force NTSC
    • Wiiflow: Settings > Default Video Mode > NTSC


    Am I now totally safe to play any PAL game from the external HDD? Or am I missing something?

    with preloader installed, the wii does boot to the main system menu. it only loads to the preloader menu if you configure it to or if you hold in the reset button, so that logic is flawed. preloader also helps when there is a problem accessing your system menu, you have a way to get into the wii and work with the files to fix the problem.
