So I have searched everywhere on bypassing the AP for Kirby's Adventure Wii (PAL) and all I can find are gameconfig.txt files and they do nothing on WiiFlow Lite so I don't know what to do
All tutorials lead up to USB Loader GX and as of right now I can't use it since I don't have any external HDD that works with USB Loader GX.
Why do I need the bypass? Well the game loads and when I want to load up a save it just gives me a black screen and I need to force shut down the whole Wii and nothing works even changing the settings in wiiflow do nothing, but still getting a black screen after choosing a save

Yeah... there's supposedly a new version of USB Loader GX that automatically patches that Metafortress' anti-piracy thingy.

Try updating to the new version (totally unaware if that's already been released)

OR: Try CFG USB Loader instead.

OR: Copy the game to a 2GB SD card and play the game with a SD to USB converter... plug it on the lowest (nearest the Wii's edge) USB port.

Alright then, the only way to play games better will be via USB Loader GX then anyway for the foreseeable future, that means I will need an external USB HDD then. I have tried CFG Loader but same issue as wiiflow so I will get GX up and running then with an HDD connected then. Should any external HDD work that need a power source connected to it?

To be honest I'm not sure if that'd work.
Personally never had a problem with CFG USB LOADER nor with Kirby's Adventure.

But again, loading Kirby's Adventure via SD is recommended instead of loading it via USB.

My other guess is that you might be missing cIOS or maybe you're either using WideScreen, Language or Cheats (all of them will activate the Metafotress antipiracy)

So... post a syscheck and wait till someone tells you what's going on with it... I don't know how to read stschecks 😅

PS: There's plenty if tutorials on how to post one, so please don't: "hOw dO i Do ThAt?"

Alright, so what I did: I went and found my OLD 1TB WD My Book hard drive and transferred all the files from it to another harddrive that I use that has more space (6TB) and now I formated the WD HDD to FAT32 and transferred all the Wii games from my SD to the newly formated HDD and loaded up USB Loader GX and it immediately found the HDD and connected it and boom Kirby works and no crashes at all or black screens. For anyone wanting to play Kirby's Adventure on an SD Card: It simply won't work so get an HDD with at least 1TB to store games on it and use USB Loader GX and it works

Now I am going to use USB Loader GX instead of WiiFlow

MetaFortress isn't anti-piracy, it's anti-tamper. Anti-piracy would require checking what IOS (and some kind of media format check for old Wiis that can read DVDs - the format, not the physical disc: Gamecube & Wii discs aren't DVDs by standard but they are physically) the game is using, and it doesn't do that. To patch out MetaFortress, I believe if you put this on a text file called "gameconfig.txt" on your SD root, it will work.

Code:
RSB?01:
codeliststart = 80570000
codelistend = 80580000
hooktype = 7
poke(800042B8, 60000000)
pokeifequal(803E9930, 4BFECA1D, 803E9930, 60000000)
pokeifequal(803E99A8, 4BFECA1D, 803E99A8, 60000000)
pokeifequal(803E9D5C, 4BFECA1D, 803E9D5C, 60000000)
