    hacks.ini, confusing me, not loading certain hacks.

    First off, I know what I'm supposed to do, and I'm 99.9% sure I'm doing it right, as it works for every hacks.ini file, except the one I want to use. Alright, so I followed Dogeggs tutorial for 3.1 - 4.1 Wiis, I am using 4.0U if that helps. Since updating to 4.1 was optional if you were on 3.2 or 4.0, I decided not to update, as I saw no use in it. So when I use the hacks.ini file in Dogeggs tutorial, only 5 hacks come up, no hacks seem to be loaded from the file. I decided I didn't need all the other stuff, and created my own file with just Block Online Updates and Block Disc Updates, but Block Disk Updates never appears, one one appeared this time, Block Online Updates. When I use a big pre-made file which I think I got from wiibrew.org for 4.0U Wiis, it will display every hack except Block Disc Updates, it seems to not like that one. A similar one does come up though, which is Skip Disc Update, or it might be Skip Disc Update Check (not actually looking at my Wii right now). I haven't enabled anything for now, but would enabling the Skip Disc Update have the same effect as the Block Disc Update? I'm really confuzzled as to why this one hack won't appear.

    To sum it up: I've successfully made my own hacks.ini file, Block Disc Updates show up, but Skip Disc Update (maybe Skip Disc Update Check) appears, would enabling that have the same effect?

    If you know how to fix this, or if just using Skip Disc Update Check would work the same, please tell me.

    Thank you.

    I checked that file, and it's pretty redundant with certain hacks, is there a reason for that?

    It has hacks for all system menus (and regions) to date. Priiloader will only show the ones that apply to your current version and region though, so no need to edit it. If you ever update though, you can use the same hacks.ini file.

    Alright thanks! I guess that's the reason that Priiloader wouldn't load the Block Disc Updates on the previous one. I'll try it out next time I get a chance.

    Nope. I just tried it, and I still don't see "Block Disc Updates" only "Skip Disc Update Check". I've enabled Skip Disc Update Check and Block Online Updates for now. Would updating to 4.1 help? And if so, how do I update to 4.1 with what I've done so far (installed everything from Dogeggs tutorial, but didn't take the "optional" 4.1 update)?

    I'm sorry, I just realized something. In 4.0, it was called "Skip Disc Update Check". It's the same thing though.

    By the way, you may want to update to 4.1 (not 4.2 or 4.3!), since it has a bug fix for loading channels from the SD card. It isn't a huge deal, so do what you want. Go here for more info.
