I homebrewed my Wii yesterday and downloaded New Super Mario Bros. Wii onto a USB drive (tried both NTFS and FAT32) and decided to use Reggie Level Editor to change level 1-1 a bit as a test. I tested it on Dolphin emulator and it worked fine as expected, but when I replaced the original game .wbfs file in the USB drive and loaded it on the Wii it didn't work. I also tried it with a .iso file and again, it worked in Dolphin but the Wii can't load it. Dolphin loads it as expected but the Wii doesn't even reach the part where it tells you to wear your Wiimote straps, it just boots back into the homebrew channel.

That is because DOLPHIN is an Emulator and "forgives" many Things.
That is also the Reason,why so many "Games/ISO´s" are around which are not working on the real Wii.
And "self modded" Wii Games,which do not adhere 100% to the Specifications of the real Wii are simply not running.:)

For the real Wii you also maybe need some cIOS / Setting Changes in your USBLoader to get it to work.


Thank you.:)

Hello,

As @alexander1970 says, you may need to change the CIOS in your game settings.

Then, I would think of another subject ==> why not use an external hard drive in FAT32 ==> you will get better results.

Because very often the USB keys give a black screen or do not start ==> fly over the Wii forum on USB keys and you will notice that people who use a USB key end up opting for an external hard drive and everything works by MIRACLE

    The younger generation uses mostly TikTok and YouTube, some Instagram. It seems like they don't care so much about social profiles.

    But that's a thing with social media; it creates an illusion of proximity, when in truth everyone is overwhelmed with all the information and all the social demands in the platforms

  • Dark_Phoras @ Dark_Phoras:
    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward
