    What title says.

    Trying to play Shaun White Skateboarding. Doesn't work and I am thinking it is because of a missing IOS

    How would I get to the offset? (I don't use HEX editors )

    I tried it in the way on how I thought I'd need to get there but I got out on the number 8.. That IOS doesnt exist

    I'm sure there are programs that do it automagically, but I have no clue how. If you are going to use this method you MUST use a hex editor and then use "go to offset" then convert the digit from HEX to DECIMAL.

    Conversion fail... 38 HEX is 56 Decimal. IOS 56 is your answer.

    Oii! Thats what I just found out using WIiPartitionBinChanger. But thanks anyways. Now a second question: Would a game blackscreen if the IOS is too old? (Since IOS56 is already installed

    38 hex is 56 in decimal, so if you found the correct offset and 38 is the correct value, then the game uses IOS56

    hmm... koji2009 beat me...

    It can, yes. Just use Multimod manager (MMM) to download the latest. That said, I can't guarantee that's the reason it's not running, but you can at least rule that out then [​IMG]

    I ripped IOS56 off the ISO, and I found out that this is NOT the problem that causes the game to refuse playing. What I did found out is that if I use IOS222-mload with Block IOS Reload off, that my game plays till the Ubisoft logo

    When you use cios it doesn't matter if actual ios used by the game is installed or not... Naturally, also it doesn't matter which version you got...
