    Hi everyone! I'm Lee from the UK.

    Recently, I bought myself a Hard Drive, and decided to hook it up to my Wii, with the help of The Homebrew Channel and USB Loader GX. I am currently running cIOS 14, and using a WD 500gb My Book.

    I installed a few games, and tried them to make sure they worked and they were perfect, witn no graphical problems at all. I then installed Cooking Mama 2: World Kitchen for my partner, and I noticed some little black flickering dots in random places, but thought nothing of it.

    Then a few days later I played Another Code: R, and again noticed some flashing dots, but this time not black, but more blue-ish, similar to the colour tones around it.

    What baffles me is that games like MadWorld, Super Mario Galaxy, Punchout, Okami, Smash Bros Brawl, Zelda all work perfectly fine with no problems, and they are pretty graphics heavy, yet only these two games have this issue (of what I've noticed anyway).

    I've read about flickering dots being linked to the GPU overheating, and I was wondering if that's the problem, or if it could be the game.

    If it is the GPU, is it going to get continuously worse.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not that bad, and to be honest could live with it they way it is, plus my partner uses it more that I do and doesn't notice it, but if it gets worse, what are my options, as when I first got the Wii, I had a WiiKey installed, plus it's now softmodded so that I can run the HDD.

    If it is the GPU, will Nintendo repair it?

    If anybody could help, I be very grateful

    Thanks in advance

    I think it is the GPU. Send a repair to Nintendo.

    So why is it happening on only a couple of games? Surely if it was the GPU, it would be happening on ALL games, and the menu!
