    For about 4 months when i first tried to play fire emblem: Radiant dawn( US ,purchased legit from store: Original disk) on my modded japanese wii, i stupidly allowed it to install the firmware, and as an end result, semi-bricking it.

    Just fixed it with brick blocker yesterday(Finally got around to it) and yet fire emblem still: Radiant dawn still doesnt work!

    It recognizes it in the preview screen, and as soon as i click start, the screen goes black, and i have to unplug the wii in order to restart it.

    Then i downloaded Animal Crossing: City folk(US), mainly because it was a small file with many seeds at the time, download finished in a mere 1 hour and a half. And upon burning it, same problem with fire emblem T_T

    And i re-downloaded CF from another source, and used the trucha solutions, and still didnt work T_T

    Currently download the new Tales of symphonia(US), boom blox(JAP), and captain tsubasa(JAP) via bittorrent.

    Boom blox and ToS should be done in about an hour(after 12 hours) hopefully these work.

    Quicknote: I do not have any other wii games or burns(Have access to brawl but... you know, nor have i seen any wii games work on it other than when purchased)

    But is there something im not doing? Since AC, and FE are made by nintendo themselves, is it possible they have some anti-piracy data in them which is preventing me from playing them?

    Please help, the nintendo addict needs his fix, and DS no longer cuts it for now.


    Additional info: Gamecube Games work fine.
    Type of modding: Modchip, wiikei 1.9
    firmware: V288 installed using BB http://www.coderetard.com/wp-content/uploa...te-JAP-v288.rar
    Type of DVD's used: DVD+R
    DVD burner: Sony 20x dvd burner
    Burn software: Nero 7 express.

    alright, hope thats what it is.
    i'm rather fluent in japanese, err, well enough to understand simple instructions.

    But i do want to play games such as rpg's like fire emblem and ToS in english [​IMG] for the story.
    Is my problem a common one, unique, or am i just being dumb?

    I've already used brick blocker [​IMG] and have the firmware v288

    i think if you run them through geckos itll skip the update check so have you tried that ?

    Try change your video region from EDTV to the setting above that. Fire-emblem doesn't work on 480p for me, since I region patched it to PAL from NTSC..

    I see how you feel! Try Running it Through GeckoOS or if not maybr the Backup Launcher by Wiigator. All games listed above DO work.

    Do you now know how to do that or do you need more help?

    Well, at least now i know the wii works!
    I used WiU1.1 to region patch on Tales of symphonia: DotnW, and first burn didnt work, but i got the 001 error(never got it before) then trucha signed it, and it worked perfectly!
    But havent got the chance to do so with boom blox, animal crossing, or cap tsubasa.

    Currently downloading 5 wii games.

    Super mario galaxy
    Brawl
    fire emblem
    harvest moon(Update! finished downloading)
    legend of zelda: Twighlight princess


    Will using the same procedure work for these, and all/most games?

    Also, would it be recommended for me to use Wiigator BL despite me already having chipped my wii?

    And any special info about the twilight hacks ive heard so much about would be vastly appreciated, like will they work with a burn?



    Will

    Ah, so animal crossing was a problem game itself eh?
    That might explain why it didnt work...

    But yeah, thanks! I'll do it first thing when i get home!
    At work right now... waiting for something to do :/

    so if you dont know about the twilight hack then you probably dont know how to use geckos ok so first youre gonna need the legend of zelda twilight princess and an sd card download this
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=V4W4D4Q4
    and check to homebrew channel and i believe the save data too but im not sure weather or not it does it by itself or not after that it should be pretty self explanatory since itll do all the work for you as far as were everything goes since you have a chipped wii you should be able to use a back up of twilight princess
    so after its all done go to your wiis save date and copy the save file for zelda from your sd card to the wii launch the game select the first data file and talk to the closest guy to you when you start the game and a lot of code should appear on screen accept the agreement and you should end up with the homebrew channel after put this folder into your sd card
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=23GHD89Y
    so it should go like this X:/apps/and folder goes here (X means what ever drive your sd cards in)
    after that launch the hombrew cahnnel which should be on the wiis menu and start geckos and launch your games through geckos because it gives you region free and skips updates too hope this helped

    Ah, many thanks my friend, this sounds like just what i needed.
    Quick question though, when you say "Launch the game" I take it you mean the Twighlight princess game right?

    All i want to know, if it will work on a burned copy?

    also, how should i go about burning TP? Same way i did ToS? with wiu1.1 and trucha?

    if you have a chip a burned game is fine, if not you'll at least need to borrow the game to install the homebrew channel

    umm....its VERY likely it won't work.

    I couldn't get a PAL TP to show video properly on my NTSC-U no matter what I did.
