    Hi, I have installed HB Channel, and the 0.3g Gator loader......I also have 0.3b loader, DVDx installed well, everything went ok, but I just cant play a backup game. I have 3.3u, so my question is, do I need to downgrade to 3.2?

    Thanks.

    0.3g should work. Are you getting errors? We need more info.

    I tried that, I installed IOS38-64-v3609.wad and still got the black screen.......

    But, just to be sure, I should be able to play burned games with Wii 3.3u right?

    Get AnyTitleDeleter... no, just listen...

    Run it from HBC. Don't delete anything, just list the IOS's it finds... that will help us determine what you need to do next.

    Any anyway, Animal Crossing CF should have only been a 444Meg download... after you extract it, it's 4.3gig... make sure you download the 444meg version. It's all set to run for you, with update blocker already applied...

    Wait, am I missing something? I didn't have to install IOS38 to get Animal Crossing running. I have Starfall installed, if that's a factor...

    @zidane: I went into Anytitledeleter but dont know where to look for that.....

    @nin10dofn: You must have 3.2, I have 3.3u.

    I just burned the game CARS and it also worked perfectly.

    I had the same situation as you. But when i tried using WiFi it wouldn't work completely. I could open my door to allow guests, but they couldn't enter my town until i had IOS38.

    Ok, I got it working. This is what was going on.

    I burned the Downloaded ISO image to Maxell DVD-R at 3x, and Failed.
    I BrickBlocked the Downloaded ISO image and burned to Verbatim DVD-R at 4x, and Failed.
    I burned the Downloaded ISO image to Verbatim at 4x and Worked.

    So 2 things could've been the problem. The Maxell DVD-r dont work with Wii, or burning it at 4x is better than 3x. But this was the final comparison.

    Downloaded ISO Image with Maxell at 3x - FAILED
    Downloaded ISO Image with Verbtim at 4x - SUCCESS

    Just thought people might find this useful.
