    Hey.

    I installed the WiiGator Gamecube Loader, and the MIOS thing that goes with it.

    I put in a DVD with Wind Waker, Luigi's Mansion, and Mario Golf. They were all PAL.

    I put in the disc and open the loader. It loads and recognizes the 3 ISOs (actually GCM put into one ISO) on my disc. I can sort through the games by pressing left/right.

    But when I load it (either by pressing A, B, R, or X), the Wii just goes blank -- my TV's blue "off" screen comes up, but the Wii still has the green light on.

    Is this a problem with the files actually being GCM and not ISOs that I put into one big ISO that I burnt?

    How can I fix this?

    If your playing PAL games on a NTSC console TV that might be the problem, get NTSC versions of the game, should work just fine.

    If you have Starfall (and maybe Preloader's) 'Region-Free GC Games With Video Mode-Patched' enabled, that may be the cause of the problem.

    I had that problem with Metal Gear, and to fix it, I reinstalled the patched mios (v5)

    Meh... uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help me at all -- the sound of Wind Waker is beckoning me [​IMG]

    This is incredibly frustrating. I reinstalled the Mios patcher... nothing. The app... nothing. I deleted and reinstalled the Homebrew Channel.... nothing.

    Not nothing... only audio. No video. Ugh.

    Do you have that GCN region free Starfall patch enabled or not?

    I don't know what that is. I'll look it up.... but the GCN Loader makes you select the region of your DVD before it loads it -- it supports PAL, NTSC, etc...

    my DVD is PAL, my TV is NTSC... but I pick PAL when using the loader.... so I should be okay right?
