Problem: Black Ops lags in multiplayer, so bad sometimes that the game isn't playable.
My Setup: USB Loader GX using IOS249(rev.20) and playing off of a Passport 320 gig hard drive. System Menu 4.2U. Latest HBC

- I have isolated the problem down to Black Ops and the hard drive (usb)

- The game works fine with NO lag whatsoever when I play it off of a DVD-r with Neogamma, which is also using IOS249(rev.20)

- When I play Modern Warfare Reflex off of the hard drive through USB Loader GX, it play fine with no lag in multiplayer

- The problem is not my router or my ISP, because the game doesn't lag when played off of a DVD

- I have tried playing through Configurable USB Loader and Neogamma (mounting WBFS), but still get lag, so it isn't USB Loader GX's fault either

- I have tried 3 ISO's, 2 NTSC (scrubbed and un-scrubbed) and 1 PAL, all of which have the same lag problem

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Then stop your downloads.

Pip'
There you go T, its that simple. I can't believe you didn't think of that already!!!

IK, slap me hard for being such a stupid imbecile.

ANYWAY, I did get the problem solved. I used pimpmywii to update all my ios's and the problem disappeared like magic.
I'm using CFG Usb Loader using IOS224 mload

can anyone else confirm that this pimpmywii will actually resolve online lag for this game...I have the same problem

Fullstrength, I had tried downloading new IOS's, new router firmware, different usb loaders, different ISO's, all kinds of different loading options, but nothing worked.

I DID, however, get the game to play without that lag-type deal when I played it off of a dvd-r using neogamma. So I knew that it wasn't my ISP, router or ISO. It had something to do w/ communications between the Wii and the hard drive. I used ModMii to update all the IOS's I had, but it still didn't work. THEN I did the same thing w/ pimpmywii, and it worked. I can't tell you exactly which IOS pimpmywii updated that fixed the problem, but I can tell you that it solved my problem, and fixed my friend's problem playing a retail copy on a modded wii.

So even though the name of the program is kind of off-putting, it worked and therefore has my recommendation. Use it according to it's directions of course, because any IOS tampering can be potentially dangerous.

BTW I'm playing it using CFG USB Loader using IOS224 mload. So if you don't want to go through with pimpmywii, download the newest 224 and see where that takes you.

Hope this helps.

I'm guessing your using IOS224 mload base 57 right?

No it won't. That is absolute non-sense and will not help with lag issues.

It worked for me. The "lag" or whatever it was, significantly decreased when i switched from CIOSrev20 249[57] to hermes v5 224[57]

Pimp My Wii also fixed the blue screen 002 error i was getting with my retail disc.

Have you heard of coincidence? Changing cIOS will not help the lag issue. I have tested this thoroughly.

The only reason it helped with the 002 error is because it updated or installed IOS57 which can be achieved many ways.

What loader are you using? The loading screen issue is a common problem for modded wii's.

And Krank, we're not talking about standard connection lag, so you can spare us your "input", if you've got nothing helpful to add.

Which CIOS are you using to boot the game, and which usb loader are you using?

Makes no difference if it's "standard connection lag" (whatever that is supposed to mean...your lag is special I guess). Running pimpmywii will not help at all with any online or connection issues.

from what ive read, the lag issue is not happening ONLY with wii users. PS3 and PC online gamers are suffering from it too.

The thing is... For the PC, they already released a patch that corrects the online lags. Soon there will be one for PS3. But what about the wii? IF it is an original bug, I think it cant be patched.
