    Here is a way to fix anygame that gives a Green Screen and possibly fix games patched to IOS249 (Metroid Remake)


    Create a HomeBrew Channel app for the game using the PC tool wbfs and install Kwiirks USB2 beta2 (IOS222dip)
    )
    Load the game from HBC and bam works

    Tested and working with so far:

    Tomb Raider Anniversary (NTSC) on PAL machine, previously gave green screen on load
    Medal Of Honor Heroes 2: (NTSC) on PAL machine, previously loaded till a menu then greened out.


    Kwiirks USB2.0 B2 installer (DIP Version)

    http://www.yafaze.com/wii/usb2b3dip.rar (run using HBC)



    PLease try all you can!!

    So, do I just install this from HBC, or do I install this by making a homebrew directory to run from HBC using the WBFS tool? I didn't quite understand what you were saying :\ .

    Every attempt I make only results in a meta.xml being made. I tried using Command Line and GUI but nothing is producing a boot.dol [​IMG]

    Any help here please. I'm on Windows XP.

    Does installing Kwiirks USB2.0 B2 installer overwrite the one from CIOS249rev9?

    No it does not. It installs as IOS222.

    I think you're supposed to manually copy the boot.dol and icon.png that came with wbfs into each of the HBC app directories.

    BTW, the cIOS 222 installer doesn't work for me (code dump while downloading one time, error while installing the other time), is there any alternative way of loading games that currently freeze with green screens?

    I've found a video patch version which would solve that problem, but there is no support for PAL 480p...

    At least the linux version, and mac os x port, of the tool looks in the current directory for boot.dol and icon.png and copies them to every directory generated. So you can copy them manually from the distribution package.

    The binary does then, when run from HBC, check it's current directory on sd and try to load any title with id equal to the last part of the pathname if present on the HDD. The script just generates meta.xml to include game name for HBC.

    So with this, you can use HBC as a USB loader with customizable sorting and images for each game.

    I've tried to get these binaries to boot with a dol forwarder or the like with no luck. This sucks since it would be soooooo awesome to create individual channels for separate games and run directly from system menu.

    I'll have to look into the sources for the boot.dol to see if one could hardcode the gameid into the binary instead ...

    ahh it seems this only works for Region Patch...games that don't load normaly through USB Loader.

    Tried metroid with cios249 patch and same screen error.

    I think i know why

    Usb Loader is only allowing access to 1 IOS at a time and when the games change the IOS to another it errors......... possible to fix ina new version tho i think as BUL had that fix.

    Fixed it. You just find the sources for yal and replace the pathname parsing with hardcoding. I'll post the details in a sec.

    Since these game ids do not change, do you mind sharing the boot.dols?

    I believe your method of fixing this requires an operating system I do not have lol.

    P.S.

    Its time for me to go to sleep. Been up trying to find a solution when you have already done so. YAY!

    Now I will finally be able to launch games directly from the system menu and with the game's original banner/icon/sound.

    What IOS does Metroid Prime Wiimake run off of natively? I ran into the same problem when testing this method and I'd like to see what happens if I use IOS Patcher to change it back to what it's supposed to be.
