    USB Loader Failing to Load *some* New Games. Do I need to update? (SysCheck enclosed)

    First thing: I've searched the forums for a solution to my problem but haven't found someone experiencing exactly what I'm experiencing.

    Second thing: I *do* have a SysCheck of my system to help trouble shoot it. You can check it out here:

    Spoiler



    Here's my specific issue: I have a dual modded Wii (softmod and hardmod). I'm running USB Loader GX to load games off an external hard drive. I use WBFS Manager to load games onto the WBFS partition on the USB drive from a Windows machine. This was a totally hiccup-free system for the last two years.

    Recently, however, when I copy games and go to run them from USB Loader GX, the new games will frequently fail to launch, I'll get a black screen with the cascade of Wii logos, and then I'll end up back at the main menu. This isn't happening with specific games that are known to have issues which require tweaking/patching. It seems to be happening with almost all the new games I load onto the drive. All the old games play fine. Maybe 10% of the new games play fine. 90% of the new games simply fail to load.

    I'm not sure where to start trouble shooting this issue as it isn't like *all* the games fail to load or the HDD isn't recognized. It's just the new games. While reading posts here I saw people talking about updating their CLIOS/IOS and such. To the best of my recollection I haven't updated anything but USB Loader GX on occasion since I soft modded. I'm pretty confident that it isn't an issue specific to USB Loader GX because if I try to load the new-and-failing games in WiiFlow or another loader, they fail there too.

    Based on the SysCheck log I posted above... does this seem like a probable issue? Do I need to update something? Any direction you could provide would be helpful. I'm pretty puzzled by this because of how random the works/doesn't work pattern seems to be. Thanks!

    First you should introduce yourself here. As far as your issues are concerned, your mod is pretty outdated. I would suggest following the Softmod ANY Wii guide in my sig below. That will get you up to date on all your IOSs/cIOSs. You can start from chapter 2 as long as you have the homebrew channel. Afterwards, change the default IOS in GX to 248, as it has the most compatibility.

    EDIT: BTW thanks for providing details and a syscheck in a spoiler. Rare we see that around here on the first post...lol

    Interesting; I had no idea the mod would become outdated. The Wii is the first console I've soft modded. I'm more of an old school solder-and-mod kinda guy going back to the first gen Xbox. So I can essentially re-run through the soft modding process, following the guide you shared, without any negative repercussions because I have an old soft-mod already on the system? It'll just overwrite/update everything?

    I told you I did my reading The SysCheck tool is so handy. I knew I needed to share what was going on with my cIOSs and such but I had no idea how to get that information. The SysCheck post/guide was super handy.

    You are correct that it will overwrite/update everything. As newer games have come out, ninty has had to update the wii's software. The updates are on the game discs. You never want to use those updates because they also include things to remove homebrew. Just follow the guide I told you about and you will be all set!
