    Questions about Hermes 222

    Ok, So I'm a total NEWB when it comes to a my wii, but I was able to follow this and hack my wii. Everything was going fine since I was just using USB Drives to play games. I got my Iomega HDD and installed all the games I had been playing and some that I hadn't tried yet. When I tried to play the new games, none of them worked. The old ones on the new HDD did.

    Here is a list (that I can remember, at work):
    Worked: Mario Kart, New SMB, Zelda Twilight Princess, Price is Right, Deal or no Deal, SMG 2, Iron Man 2
    Didn't work: Monster Hunter 3, pop forgotten sands (i know this has issues with it), metroid prime 3 corruption, Brothers in Arms Double Time

    So, my main question is, will I have a better chance of getting these games to play if I change to Hermes 222? I found this guide. Is that the best one to use? Will the other games stop working? If I install it over my 249 hack, can I just go back to the original tutorial and redo #5: Installing cIOS249-rev17?

    Finally, with using USB LoaderGX r929 how do you play a PAL region game? I just downloaded some dance dance game for my wife, and will be trying to get it to work when I get home.

    Thanks in advance.

    As for GX or any loader for that matter, you can force your region. In the loader's settings there will be an option like region or video. Change that to NTSC. You can also do that for individual games via the settings after loading the game but before choosing to play. I left my loader on default and just change them via game settings, as I only have a couple that require the region force.

    Thank you for your quick responses.

    So I guess I'll try it when I get home. Again though, it shouldn't affect the playability of the games I am currently playing correct?

    As long as you just force your region on the needed games as well as set only the required games to boot from 222 or 223, you should be fine. If it ain't broke..... no reason to run all games from 222 or 223.
