    I have a 4.2 Wii that autoboots to .dol for USB Loader. I can not sync the controller in USB Configurable Loader. I power up holding reset to get the preloader 0.29 but can not get to system menu even with a gamecube controller in port 4.

    My question is, is there a way to sync a controller with a specific .dol app I can put in the autoboot folder? Or does someone have a preloader config file that will make it autoselect system menu when I boot up?

    Thank you for any help!!

    I thought Priiloader had the ability to sync remotes? I mean I can do so on my real and emu-nand; so have you tried that?

    you can use the gc controller in cfg loader to launch a game or set preloader to autoboot to system menu .

    Yeah I haven't used this Wii in a year so it has old programs on there. I have Preloader 0.29 and it will not let me sync on that screen or let me use GC controller in port 4. I tried using a Preloader config file I found on their website that allows GC controller in port 4 to be activated, but no luck.

    I was just trying my luck to see if anyone had any ideas before I go buy another Wii. Thanks for the replies though.


    @The_Dragons_Master_F
    I booted cfg loader and had GC controller in, but it wouldn't let me control anything. Do I need to do anything specific to make it work?

    correct me if i'm wrong, but won't the system menu load if you remove the SD/USB where the cfg boot.dol is located...?

    preloader installs the boot.dol in the nand so that won't work.

    ...i see...that's old-school. ...i was thinking the .dol in preloader was just a forwarder (implied by 'autoboot folder')....

    does the OP have bootmii/boot2...? you could use that to get around preloader altogether....

    I can control Priiloader just fine with my GC controller.
    You can set Priiloader to either start/return to "Installed File", HBC or System Menu. Just set it to system menu.
