    What ios that game uses?

    There are some games that need ios 37, they just return to menu on boot... installing ios 37 fixes those...

    Maybe you lack a certain ios... the one that game uses...

    ps: by the way if you are already getting "this channel can't be used" message or freezes after launching the game it may well still be a region problem...

    can't tell which ios it uses, but I've encountered two errors with it.

    Region locked console + Freethewad'd channel to ntsc = once no banner and then locks up on boot

    Region free wii (starfall) + PAL channel = Banner and all but freezes

    Region Free wii + freethewad'd wad = banner and error message...

    Some games just don't work even region free'd.

    An example is the Defend Your Castle WAD I installed long while ago. Figured that it wouldnt work even with freethewads.

    Get the NTSC wad.
