2 Users Say Thank You to sparky67 For This Useful Post
I'd wish they would move to a wii interface instead of the GC interface. Switching controllers is a pain. Maybe the 1.5 will do that...or not.
You don't need the GC controller to navigate the Fusion menu. You change item with the Reset button on the console and you start the selected game by holding down the Reset button a couple of seconds.
If you want to wear out the reset button eventually,keep using it then. I prefer to keep mine working for more than 5 years or long after I sell it.
i can confirm that v1.5 update fixes the problem titles i had from this thread
great news for me, im not sure how it will be for other but update and test if you have problems playing some titles.
I updated my wiikey fusion when i installed the fusion into my wii a while back, it was v1.4. I down loaded this 1.5 version and followed the guide on the fusion site. But when i turn on wii and click on gamecube icon, all i get is a big green G and backup launcher 8.2.? I no this is not right from my previous update.
When i downloaded the update it came as a .rar file so extracted it with winrar. I got another file that looked the same but in properties it said it was a .iso. So i put that on sd card using wbfs manager 4.0.
i'm sure that's what i did before but i did'nt get the launcher page
What have i done wrong.
All i done with the update was the following.
1) downloaded wiikeyfusion_v1.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.5 file and extracted to my desktop
2) run WBFS Manager 3.0 and copy'd the .iso to the sdcard ( i use a 4GB sandisk ) as normal
3) without dvd and stcard in fusion, booted the wii and went into fusion like when i play games from stcard and run the update as i would a game. select game and reset button to launch the selected game. but in this case it was the update.
when when the wii rebooted though disk channel i was presented with fusion screen, and then its erased and written like my other 1.4 update done, all good on the last reboot.
i would redownload the update just to make sure you have not got a bad download, also copy the update like you would a game. and hopfully its just a bad download. good luck mate, im very happy now to have these problem games working, the fusion felt like half a mod chip for me in 1.4

I no alot of games wont load on the 1.4 update with disc's, but was happy with the ones that did. (although all of them would be better)
I dont quite understand step three: without dvd and sd card in fusion. I thought the sd card would have to be in for fusion to load?
I've redownloaded 1.5 update. And followed guide but i get the same backup launcher
I must also say that my wii has been softmodded in the past, would this have an effect. Is there anything ells that should be on the sd card apart from update or any games.

hi rogerde, i cant comment on if the soft mod is causing the problem as i never softmodded my wii. where i refer to on dvd in drive and sdcard in slot. make sure no dvd is in the wii, put sdcard in and boot the wii.
hopfully someone with knowlage in softmodding might help with your poblem

Works fine now. Now i love the wiikey fusion. Plays all me backups fine even Black opps.
