    As a wii softmodder, i'm pretty new to this area, but when my wii tries to read my wbfs file in USB Loader Gx, it cuts to a black screen, then a couple of seconds later, it goes to the wii menu. Also i'm trying to load it off my usb, which is in fat32 format. I think I might need help with the whole cios and ios thing, and I have the time to reinstall them, just make sure you give me every step. I can also try to do that system checker thingy if I have the time. I've also tried Wiiflow. Thanks! :)



    EDIT: The game is separated into multiple parts, maybe this could be the reason?? Idk I need a fix.

    The game being in multiple part is on purpose, this is how it's supposed to be.
    (well, as long as your parts are named .wbfs, .wbf1, wbf2 etc.
    if it's .001 .002, or .rar, or r01, or anything else than "wbf" something, then you have the wrong game format.

    you mentioned "read my wbfs files" so I'd just assume you have the correct game file format.


    What you describe is typical of "no cIOS installed".

    ok .. so, I don't know how many times I wrote that guide every weeks ... I should really put a link in my signature x___x

    get d2x cIOS installer for Wii
    create a folder on your SD card here : sd:/apps/d2x_installer/
    extract the downloaded pack into that folder

    be sure network access and internet is setup and working on your Wii
    launch d2x installer from HBC
    select this (with d-pad left/right/up/down) :


    What : d2x v8 final
    where : 249
    base : 57
    version : 65535 (I specifically chose this version for you, you seem to have the "cIOS replaced" issue, so you probably don't have priiloader and just got your softmod deleted by nintendo !)

    Press A to install
    when completed, press Home to exit.

    done.

    Sorry for the dumb question Cyan, but what slot do I put it in the slot map?

    EDIT: I tried putting it in slot 249 in the slot map, and when it's download and patching contents, it says net_gethostbyname failed: -125. It still installed normally though... I'll try to check if my game works in USB Loader. Also when I mean the game is seperated into parts, I mean like I go into Wiiflow, and there are multiple copies of it, and all of them lead to a black screen, then crash to wii menu. Also when I try opening one in USB Loader GX (this one isn't in parts) It does the same. I'll reply back if it works.

    The grid is just a reference. You pick where you want it installed on the previous screen.

    oh ok thanks, I did as said, but I had recently deleted USB Loader GX because i thought i was using an old version. Well I installed it as an wad file and now it's stuck on loading cIOS 250. Any solutions?

    don't install as WAD, it's old too.
    use latest revision (1262 or 1263) from my signature or official thread.

    you shouldn't see more than one time the same game in the loader. if you do, something is wrong with your USB and your files.
    please, show us your USB content (screenshot maybe?)


    The error you get is probably because it can't connect to the server, or you didn't enable network first.
    be sure you don't block access to nintendo servers (if you filter URL for 3DS or wiiu, disable DNS filtering, etc.) don't forget to re-enable filtering after that.

    Sorry if I'm making this harder for you, but i tried your method, and it just made the games disappear. I can do a syscheck if you would like. Anyway I a new cios installed and whenever I load into iOS 249 or 250, it stays on a black screen and it doesn't crash to home brew or wii menu. Also I tried getting another game to load, and it doesn't work. I need instructions on how to install USB loader to my SD card, cause I may have messed something up. Help on the issue is greatly appreciated! :)
