    I'm having a different problem than everyone else trying to play GH6WoR. I'm able to load the game fine through USBLoader GX, no black screens or anything. The problem I'm having is that the game is not recognizing my Frontman Wireless Guitar. The game just recognizes it as another wiimote, the neckbuttons don't work, the strum bar doesn't work. I really have no interest in playing the game with only vocals, but I want to play so bad, lol.

    If anyone has any idea's on what I can try, I'd love to hear your input. I really hope I don't have to buy another guitar. I've already been through three wii guitar controllers, plus my ps3 guitairs and drums. My wife already thinks I'm retarded for having so many "fake" instruments, I doubt she'll let me get away with buying another controller without me having to buy her something to keep her happy.

    Thanks

    Hopefully this is a base IOS issue. Which cIOS do you use, and which base IOS did you use for that cIOS?

    I guess that base IOS37 and/or 56 will detect all instruments properly.

    I'm not 100% sure, I hacked my wii about a year ago using a guide on this forum and I haven't updated anything since as I haven't had a need too. I'm not as familiar with everything as I was a year ago. I looked in USBLoader GX under credits and in the top right it said "IOS222 (Rev4)". I'm not sure what base IOS i used. Is it time for me to learn how to update to a new cIOS?

    Thanks for the info

    The Nyko guitars are just crap. IOS issues are only relevant for Rockband/USB based instruments.

    Well, I was hoping not to have to buy another peripheral if I didn't need to. Is there anything I need to update, I'm not really sure about updating cIOS's, I haven't run into any other compatability issues since initially hacking so I'm hesitant to try to update anything, I'm not even sure if there is anything i need to update.

    I got it workinng somehow, I messed around in preloader but I really didn't change anything, then I just started changing options in USBLoader GX. Once I used IOS 222 and Anti 002 fix Anti, it just started working. When I was messing around in preloader, it was saying an update to 0.30 is available. When I selected update, it went to the screen that said dowloading something but would do anything else, I had to hold the power button to restart. Is there any reason I should update preloader, and if so, how do I go about doing that?

    Depends when you last updated IOS 249 - if it's been a while then it won't support USB instruments on any GH or RB game. Later/recent versions of 249 have fixed this - but IOS 222 has work with USB instruments for longer.
