Hi everyone, i'm new here and just want to write a little post to help anyone that could have faced my same problem.

In the last days, i tried to configure everything i needed to make games wbfs work from an usb drive, the process i followed was basic: homebrew, cios 249/250/251 install and usbloadergx.

Now, everything was fine until i tried to actually put some games (through wii backup manager) on a fat32 usb stick: everytime i loaded my games the wii remote disconnected and the console just froze in a black screen state (i waited for long but nothing happened, everytime).
After every possible change, like cios reinstall and everything, i made a syscheck that reported everything in good state and was wondering why the games were not loading.

I thought it was an usb problem, since it's kind of hit or miss with usb sticks (i recommend using a HDD instead). However, the problem was not related to that (a friend of mine actually tried with an HDD but the problem was still there.

The actual solution was a rom problem: i was using only ntsc roms, but none of them worked, while pal roms seem to work without any issue. (it depends on your region, so try both ntsc and pal).

well, this being said, i'm no expert at wii softmodding, but this could maybe help someone in trouble.

    only problems are:
    the left speaker has jogged loose and disconnected
    the back cover is fucked and the parts where it screws on is donezo
    the backlight on the bottom screen has 2 slightly brighter than normal spots

    I watched Marques Brownlee review of the Steam Deck, the guy was twisting the console and saying "Good quality material, it holds up pretty well"
