    Ok, so I've been out of the scene for a bit and just homebrewed a new wii following all the steps from the Complete Softmod Guide, which pretty much just means that I'm 4.3u with a patched ios 36 in slot 236 and cios d2x I think like v8 or some such.

    So first thing I did was go download a bunch of wads of some VC and WiiWare titles and installed them thru Wad Manager. My problem is, they installed properly as far as I can tell but, when I went to play them, they just wouldn't load.

    I don't know if I downloaded some bad wads or if I'm missing some ios that I'm not aware of.

    One thing to note, some would work and some wouldn't. Castlevania Rebirth and Pokemon Puzzle League worked fine but Castlevania Rhondo of Blood and Doc Louis's Punch Out wouldn't.

    If you have any helpful tips or suggestions as to what could be the problem, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks

    Ok, well thanks for the help. Initially when I installed the wads, I moved them to the sd card from the wii memory screen and they didn't work. I just installed them again and left them on the wii itself and they seem to be working. Any idea why some will move safely to the sd card and some won't?

    Because the wads are illegal and the wii checks the tickets on sd game boot, thats why. If you want to bypass that grab modmii and install the fakesigned IOS80 with IOS60 base, then this should work. Oh and _NEVER_ uninstall this system menu IOS or you can throw your wii in trash.

    Unless you have BootMii installed and have backed up your console's nand before hand.

    Anyway... Latest Games require IOS56, but I would update your IOSes using ModMii though.

    Also... if you haven't got it installed get priiloader as well and enable hack to disable disc & online updates and region free hacks.

    - Enable region free hacks
    - Enable hacks to disable updates from both disc and online
