    I really need some help. So i have my wii softmodded with the homebew channel and i have been running GBA, SNES, N64 emulators on it fine. But i really wanted to get a wii game. So i downloaded the ISO for super smash bros brawl and put it on a usb that was formatted to wbfs with wbfs manager but when i put the usb with the file on it into the wii and go to the homebrew channel and select "usb loader gx" that i put onto the SD card it will load with the game in the list and everything. but when i click on it it shows the normal disk start menu with the art and the start button but when i click start it goes black for a second and then takes me back to the homebrew screen. I have tried changing the setting before i click start but nothing works! I really need help. Please reply and help me out.

    We really need to do something about this, newbies going into old tutorials and assuming they need to format to wbfs.... Get shut of that old thing and format it to FAT32 primary, then simply create a wbfs folder in root.

    Not gonna sort your problem out mind! :lol: What stephaniie said really, alternatively check you've got the loader set to use ios249, if that doesn't work it'll almost definitely need to be a SysCheck job ....we can't really give you a straight 100% correct answer with problems like this because there's quite a few things you may have not done, etc....

    Syscheck gives you/us a detailed information about your Wii. It takes 5min to do? Why not do it?

    Its not your problem at all. First of all, if you use " formatted to wbfs with wbfs manager but when i put the usb" the usb is called wbfs format. Not fat32 or NTFS.

    You should however format your usb to FAT32 to play wii and gamecube games, Follow these instructions:

    Play Wii/Gamecube games from USB-drive
    A. Format your USB to FAT32 with cluster size 32KB using FAT32 Format. Download to Desktop and Run. Select Drive and '32768' as Allocation unit Size. Choice a Volume Label, Mark Quick Format and Start the Format Progress. Like this - http://i.imgur.com/E6CXvPP.png
    B. To Play Gamecube Games - Create a folder 'games' inside the FAT32 HDD. Download and Open DMToolbox v.0.3 (Windows XP version) (Works with Windows 7). Click 'black folder' in Gamecube ISO: and select your GameCube ISO file . Click 'yellow folder' in Output dir: and choose any folder (i.e. Desktop) . Finally Press Install . After installation is complete, in Desktop move the GAMEID folder to USB:\games\ .
    C. To Play Wii Games - Download and Open WiiBackupManager . Click 'Drive 1' and select USB-drive from 'inactive' . Click 'Files' - 'Add - Files' and select your Wii ISO file(s) . Lastly Click 'Transfer - Drive 1' to put all Wii ISO file(s) into your USB-drive .
    D. Remove USB-drive from Computer and plug into Wii . Also plug in Gamecube controller and Gamecube Memory Card in Wii .
    E. Turn on your Wii. Launch USB Loader GX . Press this icon (Loader Mode) !! ( http://i.imgur.com/ioqV74i.png ) . Select Wii Games and GC Games .
    F. Done! :)

    Then you should use as mentioned WiiBackupManager and not WBFS Manager. WiiBackupManager is used on FAT32 USB's.

    PS: If you have alot of games on Your USB/WBFS device- And dont want to loose then in a formating process. Use this method -
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-convert-from-wbfs-to-fat32-or-ntfs.292391/ - wbfs to fat32 converter

    Now, games on USB aside. We move on to the Console.
    What you probably know or not, is that you need a d2x cIOS installed on the Wii . Thats why we want you to do this syscheck so we can see if you has it or not.

    _Do this_

    1. Syscheck
    2. Format your USB with FAT32 Format and put games on your FAT32 USB with WiiBackupManager.
    3. Alt. put gamecube games on your FAT32 USB with DMToolbox ... explained above,
    4. Get latest version of USB Loader GX from Cyan's note - its here - USBGX r1231

    Then, we need to know if you got a d2x cIOS or not.
    If you don't want to do a Syscheck - Alt. Open USBGX - goto Settings - Credits
    and its displayed if you have d2x or not - like this - http://i.imgur.com/G2gI1Pj.jpg .. thats my Credits screen .

    If you have an d2x cIOS then SupermarioSmash should work as normal.. but you probably need the latest version of usb loader gx. -

    Very simple answer:
    The way to put 4gig+ wii games onto your USB, is using WBFS Manager or WiiBackupManager.
    With WiiBackupManager you also see how the 4gig+ game is splitted into smaller files, as FAT32 only handles 3gig files.

    ok so i did everything you said and formated it and transfered the iso to the wii but when i started it the game showed up in the list with the channel start screen (where it says start or settings) but when i click start it goes back to the homebrew homescreen. I am uploding a picture of the credit screen and you will probably know whats wrong or how to get teh game to actualy start.

    Furst, I urge you to do a Syscheck .

    We now established by your image that you dont have an d2x cIOS.
    And without the information how your Wii was softmodded its dangerous to continue.

    please. do a syscheck.

    Your ios 249 is stubbed. Wait for further assistance or ask/show your syscheck in another channel nicely

    they might help you .

    He PMd me his syscheck yesterday, and I told him to install cIOS in slot249/250.
    He didn't provide another syscheck after that, but I suppose he correctly installed them.

    He now can't detect his USB drive anymore.

    Ok i got the games to load after using a different usb and installing the cios's. But when i load Mario Kart Wii the screen is kinda fuzzy, the entire game is black and white and the entire resolution is not correct. I'm not sure if this is a Mario kart specific problem or if it will happen to all my games but is there a way to fix this???

    It sounds like you may be running a PAL version of Mario Kart Wii on your NTSC-U Wii. Can you identify if your copy of Mario Kart Wii is NTSC or PAL region?
