    So the game I'm specifically trying to play is XG3 (Extreme G 3). It fires up just fine via USB, but of course the streaming audio doesn't work. So, I tried playing straight from the disc. It will let me pick all the options to start a race, but then it just crashes to a black screen when I try to start. Reverting back to the original MIOS let's me play the game perfectly from the disc.

    Any ideas? It just seems weird that the game is actually worse when played from the disc just because DIOS MIOS is installed.

    It could be either of these:

    1. Dios Mios is touchy with Real Discs.
    2. Game is not compatible.
    3. Disc is scratched.
    My opinion - "You are best off using Devolution if you have retail discs as the compatibility is amazing compared to DM{L} and it supports Streaming Audio"

    EDIT: You joined in 2008 and only made first comment now? Wow, not making fun, it's just strange.

    Hey, someone has got to set the bar for lurking ;)

    Anyway, the game is not scratched. It works like a charm with the regular MIOS. I even used CleanRip to verify the checksum and it checked out perfectly, so the Wii can definitely read it.
    I'm not sure how it could not be compatible, because the audio is definitely the only problem when loading it from my HDD. Of course, I suppose it's possible for it to be some random incompatibility, but it doesn't make a ton of sense.

    As far as using Devolution... that's a whole different can of worms. Is there a way to do some sort of system check on the Wii to make sure that everything is up to date? It's been, uh, a few years of softmodding and it doesn't seem to like Devolution. According to the log, it gets the new Wifi channel and issues the HCI cmd, but right after I insert the disk it just says "fatal error" with no explanation. The drive blinks 10 times and either sits at a black screen or reboots the Wii. So I'm not against using it, but unless you can point me in the right direction I'm kinda at a loss there too.

    Thanks!
