    Please help with my modding!!!

    Hi

    I'm brand new to this forum and really in need of some guidance!

    A couple of weeks ago I soft modded my wii. The software I used is here:
    Wii Unlock Files

    I didn't realise at the time that there were many different types of software to do this, so just went with this one! The pack is called unlockv4 and includes DowngradeIOS35.dol and DowngradeIOS35.dol. I followed the instructions here:
    • View topic - Virgin 4.0 Softmod Guide "FINAL VERSION"
    and succesfully added the backup launcher & HBC.

    All I am interested in doing is downloading games as ISO files, burning to dvd and playing them, and I have done this succesfully with about 20 games. However, when I try to play a 'newer' game, I either get errors, green screen, nothing at all etc.

    Would I be better downloading and modding with a different pack eg neogamma - if so, do I need to remove what I have already done?

    In my wii settings it says Ver.3.4E.

    Please - I know I'm a newb, but explain simply what I need to do - I don't understand the inner workings of a Wii, I have no idea what IOS, wii scrubber, CIOS or any similar means!!! lol

    Thank you very much for your help

    Pete

    i don't knwo what you did or what guide you followed but the fact that you can play any backups at all from disk means it was successful enough. you are probably missing some ios files. there is a list of games in the tutorials section and what ios files they need. download them and install them with wad manager from the homebrew channel. there is also a guide there to tell you what all these terms mean you are asking about.

    Sure this is a dumb question, but where do you download ios files? Is there a pack of them that can be installed through the homebrew channel to make sure that I have them all?

    Thanks again for your help

    You are a pair of geniuses! Every game I have downloaded and burned now loads!!! Finally I have call of duty and can even watch my divx movies thanks to this forum.

    Thanks once again.
    Pete

    PS - people seem to have problems burning. Maybe beginners luck, but I use Datasafe titanium 16x -R and burn them with poweriso. Now that I have all the ios files, every one of them works!
