    Help with James Cameron's Avatar

    Hi, I've recently come into possession of an .iso file of the PAL version of the Avatar game (the game based on James Cameron's movie, not the Airbender). I want to play this game on my Wii, but I'm having problems and hoping someone can help me.

    I have a PAL Wii, version 3.2E. It's modded with a Wiikey 1, running the 1.9s update. I don't have the homebrew channel or any other hacks to my Wii.

    The problem I'm having is getting the game to run. I ran the .iso through Wii Brick Blocker (version 1.3R2) and then burnt it onto a Verbatim DVD-R 16x disc using ImgBurn (version 2.4.1.0) at 4x, using the verify option. In the past, for the other Wii game .iso files I've had, this has always worked and simply inserting the disc in my Wii has allowed me to play.

    However, with Avatar, once I inserted the disc I got the start up screen, but once I clicked Start the screen turned black and stayed black. I left the disc in for a few minutes, thinking it may just have a long start up time, but nothing happened and I was forced to hold down the power button for a few seconds to turn it off. I tried burning the .iso again onto another disc, just in case the first disc was faulty or something, but the same thing still happened.

    I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me, I've tried the FAQ and Search features and haven't been able to find an answer, so I thought I'd ask for help here in the meantime in case someone knows and can tell me what I should do while I keep searching.

    Thank you in advance.

    Thanks, I'll try that out in the morning, see if it works.

    Do you (or anyone else reading this) know of a way I can get it to work using my Wiikey? Rather than going through all the steps to soft mod my wii, is there any way I can edit the .iso file instead so that I'm able to play it through my Wiikey?

    Also there is a bad dump of this game going around. Not sure which exact iso it is but i thought you should be aware of it's presence. Alot of ppl have gotten ahold of it so it must be popular on the web.

    Really? I was really impressed with the film, and I remember thinking halfway through watching that this movie could make a really good game, hence my eagerness to make it work.

    And thanks OddGriffin, I just rechecked the .iso in BrickBlocker and it has no country code (it comes up as X, unknown), so I think I may have a bad file. I'm currently getting another copy, one which people claim they've had success playing.

    I'll let you know if it works or not.

    It didn't work, the exact same thing happened even though I used a different .iso. I leave tomorrow for a holiday for a few weeks, but once I get back I'll research into it and either softmod my Wii or get an updated, better chip to update my v1 Wiikey.

    Thanks so much though for all of your help though.
