    I have one single emunand with all my wiiware and vc games. The games work perfectly with default settings and others with neek. Metal slug 3 only works about 20% of the time when loaded with default settings, but i get to choose the language, and if i set it to japanese i unlock red blood in game instead of white one. If i load it with neek it loads 100% of the time, but i cannot set the language, and so I cannot set red blood on.
    I've tried changing the settings in emunand to region free, but that doesnt work. I haven't tried changing emunand's language to japanese, but i don't want that, because then the rest of games that load through neek will also be set to japanese.
    I've also tried changing the wad's region to japanese or region free, which doesn't work either.
    So searching around i found instructions on how to setup neek:

    Two method to boot them from USBGX:
    1- Edit the path in "User paths" menu and launch your game.
    or
    2- install ALL games on one of the EmuNAND. Set this NAND path in the settings.
    Go to each game (yes, one by one) > option > Nand Path : set the NAND path for that game to correct region.

    Following method 2, i simply created a japanese emunand, so now i have pl_us and pl_jp inside my nands folder. Next in usb loader gx i went to metal slug > settings, and set nand path to the japanese emunand, but that didn't work.

    I just want to get red blood in game... if that's possible.

    Just for asking, because i use usb loader gx but not with emunand. With the wii and gc games you can choose options specifically for every single game that needs a setup that is diffrent from the rest of the games (force video mode, specific pacthes and language too).
    If u can change the setting for a single game in an emulated nand, try to force a different language instead of "console/system default".

    P.S. Are you sure that you've downloaded the japanes wad instead of PAL or NTSC U?

    It is the NTSC U wad. I've never found the japanese one, and as i said changing the wad's region doesn't work, and yes, usb loader gx lets you choose options for every single game, BUT if one of those configurations happens to be neek mode (which is needed to load this particular game) even if you change the language the game will load in emunand's language

    Same for me, i'm able to find the japanese wad only for metal slug 1 and 2, nothing for 3, 4 and X.
    I read that you created a japan emunand, and even if the language is forced in japan because of the emunand's country setting it didn't work.
    Then, i have to ask. Are you absolutely sure that the NTSC U wad contains the Japan language allowing blood? Is not possible that the USA version is censored and not unlockable?

    Yes, the wad is NTSC U, when i set the game's language to japanese in the usb loader settings and set nand emulation to full, it does show red blood, but the game only loads correctly 2 out of 10 times, the rest of the time it stops at an error screen.
    If i load the same game but set nand emulation to neek, the game loads properly every single time, but for some reason neek doesn't accept language changing from the usb loader settings, so i end up with white blood.

    Try to report this to Cyan, self_slaughter and greywolf in the usb loader gx official topic sticked here, they're the awesome guys that are coding, upgrading and improving the loader right now, i'm sure they will be very helpful ;)

    @tmnr1992 thinkin about it... have you tryed to install the wad in the real nand (if you're not completely sure taht your wad is USA with priiloader hack on that makes the WADs region free or making them regionfree trough showmiiwads) and then launching them from usbloader gx (channel mode ON) after changing the language to english?

    I am sure the wad is USA, and yes i have tried to install it to real nand with priiloader hacks on, it's still the same result: english language = white blood / japanese language = red blood
