    I think it was something to do with it being wii motion plus compatible or something

    You will need a Wiimote with motion plus either built in or using the motion plus add-on. Just buy one. You can find them very cheap online or even maybe your closest second hand game store.

    Skyward Sword is a motion plus game... All motion plus games made you watch a stupid safety video at first boot. If you have no motion plus and you don't have a save file that you watched the video the game won't boot.. There was a workaround... ill look for it..

    Do you have a motion +? What USB Loader are you using?

    Gambia, The
    Had the same problem once. The game does not go further than some kind of message about WiiMotionPlus. Then I realized that I hadn't one. ;-)

    If you don't have a MP Wii Remote or a MP accessory, then you shouldn't expect to be able to play the game.

    There is no workaround. You NEED to have a motion plus controller. Or one of those weird motion plus adapters.

    The workaround is only useful for setting the flag that indicates you've seen the WM+ video. It involves using the alternate dol method of launching it from a loader. You run the tutorial dol instead of the game dol. You still won't be able to get through the tutorial or play the game without a Wii Motion + module or controller, though.

    The tutorial flag is saved in the console's main SYSCONF file so you only have to watch it once for all games that support the controls.

    I got it now but the game won't load, i'm using USB Loader GX

    Edit: I fixed it by using Modmii and updating all the IOSs & cIOSs

    That is the workaround I was talking about, sorry I could not respond sooner. Seems the temp had it covered. WM+ caused some problems with that damn video back in the day,

    That would be my next suggestion, ;) Glad you guys got it straightened out.
