    No problem;

    @hoosier_d

    Maybe your ports weren't allowing incoming connections?

    It seems unlikely that my ports were unable to accept incoming since I play goldeneye and every other wii multiplayer. The more likely scenario is that black ops requires specific ports on some routers and mine was one of the affected ones.

    Yes; that is a good theory of the problem.

    Well, the main thing is that your game is now working.

    May you share which ports you fixed for the game to work? It might be a valuable resource to someone, and save them a bit of time.

    That is probably the best guess at what happened.

    Go into ModMii;

    Then look through the download pages, and select the shopping channel.
    Make sure you pick your own region, and that is the latest version of it.

    are these steps absolutely necessary? i'm using wiiflow r304-224 and launching using 249-[57] and was able to run every mode online and offline without creating multiple profiles.

    looks like the update fixed the prob requiring the user to create multiple profiles in campaign to get multiplayer working

    edit: this is speculation only based on the above 2 users posts

    So I got this working 100%... but on my friends system using the same steps as above it isn't working 100%. On the multiplayer menu most of the time the system locks up here (before it downloads the news ticker information)... but in one in five attempts, it connected and worked fine (including a few matches I played online). I deleted the profile and update saves in the wii data management screen... but it still only works very intermittently. I don't have this issue at all... any ideas? Could it be related to on his system that we couldn't install BootMii as a Boot2, only an IOS (where my system it was fine as a Boot2)?

    The BootMii version does not affect the cIOS files what-so-ever in the console. This is installed as a separate IOS file, and does not come into contact with any custom, or system IOS files.

    Did you make sure you installed the bases correctly?
    You should also make sure his internet connection is working correctly?

    for it to be working intermittently, my guess is internet settings. I think some1 else in this thread began using port 11 and that fixed his problem, try the same thing

    I think that would fix the problem also. Try forwarding that port via your internet router.

    Thanks for the replies. I plan to try it when I'm over there the next time in a few days. Gonna try and reinstall the cIOS... noticed it's up to v21 now, i was using v20... so no harm in doing it again. I don't think it should be the internet... COD: MWR worked 100% online. Will try and remember to come back and let you know how it went.

    Hmm... looks like I made it worse. Did the cIOS install (56 to 249 and 57 to 250)... and now COD:BO won't even load, it sticks on the 'loading...' screen. Don't know why this is... it's working fine on my system using same steps, but can't get it going on my friends system. What program can I use to collect a log of items installed? Maybe I can compare it to mine to see why needs to be changed/updated/installed.
