    2 problems with my USB Loader GX and IOS questions....

    First, when I use WBFS Manager 3.0, sometimes, when I put the HD to the wii, i click the USB loader channel, but it goes black and never loads, so I have to delete games, add games again, until it loads right. ITS ANNOYING. Happened to me with Castlevania Judgment and Metroid Prime Trilogy (an iso i downloaded that just have Metroid 1 and 2)

    Will another USB loader help me in my quest? What other alternatives I have in the USBloading world?

    Second: Monopoly gives mea black screen. Like, turning off the console. Is there a big pack of ios I can just.... you know, install or something? Im a noob, as you probably guessed.

    Again, will a different USB loader solve this? How can I do so the USB loader dont crash when I add new games to the HD via WBFS Manager; this is getting ANNOYING.

    Hard to answer. What System Menu/region is your Wii? What softmod guide did you follow (I hope a wiihacks recommended one). As for games and the required IOS, Teal'C has a thread in the Recommended Guides section for IOS and Games that Run Off Them or some such. Take a look.

    Since i dont know much, ill try to answer to the best of my knowledge.

    System menu? 4.2... i guess. I followed wiihacks guide, thats why im here! =D My wii is NTSC.

    I read the Teal'C thread and it says monopoly runs on ios 33 and some other games do too. However, all my games are always loaded on the same default ios (249 i think it is?) from the USB Loader GX, even tho that guide say they run on other cios. im at loss.

    And when I use my 1TB HD on my computer so i can add games and put it in the wii... sometimes loader wont load and this gets annoying. I installed everything like in the guide, then tried a fix for MH3 (Tri) and installed some hermes thingy, cios222 and 223 with 3837 merged. One of the mods said that installing cios 222 wont be necesary but i did. Aside from folowing wii hack guide, that hermes fix and USB loader GX installed via homebrew channel, ive done nothing else.

    Oh yea, i dont know what a cios is and anything about this. if someonehave like a tutorial with basic concepts it would be great.

    If you're @ 4.2, odds are you have the proper IOS/revision. You can generate an IOS report and post it in a reply to this thread. The method of how to do this can be found here. Your backup loaders all run on IOS 249 (or IOS 222) for the loader itself; nothing to do with what IOS the game itself is using.

    On the USB HD thing --- did you follow Gen3SF's tutorial then? IOS = think BIOS (Basic Input Output System). cIOS = Custom IOS (as in not officially Nintendo sanctioned, but necessary as required to play backups).

    On IOS 33, you're fine. Just a cursory glance without a line-by-line look good. If you want something to compare it against, look here. As for Gen3SF's USB HD gaming tutorial thread, that can be found here.

    This post offered a solution to another user with Monopoly in mind, but IDK if the OP was suffering from black screen or other typical stuff (b&w, green screen, etc --- no elaboration).

    As for USB Loader GX's removal, if you have the wad still on your SD card simply use wad manager. Rather than the default "install," toggle the setting to "uninstall." IDK which version you're using, there have been bugs in recent ones. Download source is here. You could also obtain the latest Neo Gamma R9 betas if interested here. Also of recent release is WiiFlow 2.0 --- read about it here.

    CFG Is a great loader. It's the only one I use and I've never had issues with it.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    CFG is doing the work, so at least i now know its the usb loader that is a bit buggy. STILL CFG runs everything great but DONT RUN monopoly (exact same error; i will try to find another backup of monoply) and the game Shiren runs like "Zoomed in" with the home and system layout when u hit home zoomed; not normal.

    I tried to force NTSC but to not abide. Why is Shiren running like that?> hw can i fix that zoomed in effect?

    Were getting there! any other recommendation with monopoly game?
