    Hey guys, this is really just a cosmetic problem i'm having.

    Everytime I launch an iso from my harddrive, I get a green screen for a second before the game launches.

    Functionality is no problem, but i don't like the way it looks. It seems unnatural.

    I have updated ios and cios and stuff like that since, and I think that may have caused it.

    I had the same problem previously with my backup gamecube games, I would get a green screen when using the gc backup launcher everytime I loaded a gamecube disc, and then i downgraded my MIOS, and that problem went away.

    Is there a fix for this, its really unsightly.

    There is no fix for this,it is mandatory for it to have the green screen. I believe it has something to do with the visual/graphics, it really isn't a problem.

    Man, it's just a buffer of the loader before actually loading the game. It's not unnatural, actually, it's pretty natural. Don't have o worry with it, some games may or may not show it.

    the thing is, i never had this before. Every game I have on my hdd is the same as before, and everytime I used to launch, it would be a black screen. Now, that ive messed with ios, it is green. I know its not mandatory for this reason, and rather its just something that I did, and i want to know if it can be reversed. If not, then its not too bad.

    I had it working before without a green screen, And this only started happening without MIOS. Is there anyone who
    also just has a normal black screen.

    interesting. Have you ever had a USB channel load without a green screen? It used to be normal for me, and I only recently started getting it.

    If it is indeed video-detection, try setting your video mode in the loader prior to running the game. IE set your mode to PAL/NTSC in the loader and seeing if it helps...

    I've read that thread. that thread had same problem, and same responses. So, basically there IS a fix for this, but people who don't know it keep replying.

    Sorry, wrong Thread.
    In another Thread stands, that the Loader fills the Buffer with 1x0(something like that [​IMG] ) and thats green, so you see a green screen. Some Loader make instead of this green a black one, so you don´t see it.

    that is a good explanation. But I dont use different loaders, I use USB game channels. before, it would show up as black but now it is all green. I have not changed the channels or anything at all, I have only messed with cios.
