    So, first off, I have a Wii with the latest homebrew channel installed(Should be, anyway), and system menu 4.2.

    So, I tried loading VBA GX up so my mom could play Azure Dreams. It freezes on me. So, I try installing IOS202, figuring maybe the lack of it was the cause of it not functioning. So, I get a message telling me that I need to run the Trucha Bug Restorer. After a half hour of that and fixing the upside-down Homebrew Channel, I still can't run IOS 202. I try running the TBR again, still doesn't help.

    Is the lack of IOS 202 the cause of my freezing, or is it an unrelated issue?

    What type of freeze is it? When you click on the game do you just get a white screen? Does it crash in the menu? Do you get the BIOS like screen? What happens?

    Ocarina: When I load up the emulator, it just turns black. Never gets to the menu, never allows me to do anything. Just black. I guess a crash would be a more appropriate term.

    WitoRIT92: The game is uncompressed.

    I think its because you didn't delete the stub IOS 202 that you have because you're on system menu 4.2. Follow this guide: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/hacking-guide/trucha and that'll get you a trucha signed IOS 36 and remove the stub IOS's for you. Then i recommend installing waninkoko's cIOS 249 and 250: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/cios/waninkoko and hermes cIOS 202,222 and 223: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/cios/hermes-cios as that will let you play all emulated games and games off a disc (using the appropriate loader).

    As it turns out, there is no stub IOS 202. There is no IOS202 at all...

    This sounds like either a bad rom or a game that just isn't compatible with VBAgx.

    Try running it in the PC version. If it doesn't work there, find a different copy.

    re-read my question. I can't even get VBA GX to run!

    some more info: I install Waninkoko's cIOS, but cannot install Hermes'. There is no IOS 202 stub preventing me from installing 202, yet I cannot install 202 anyway.

    Edit: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand VBA GX is working now. Waninkoko's cIOS fixed it. O_O

    Thanks for the help, guys!
