    Hi, was wondering of anyone ever came across this error message and what they did to get round it.
    trying to get guitar hero 5 working on usbloader gx and it pops up when i choose gh5 for some reason.

    thanks in advance

    just means the banner sound is corrupt or wrong, or the current version doesnt support that sound.bin yet which doesnt effect the game in anyway

    i dont really know why you would only get this error after upgrading your system, but here's the cause of it

    const IMETHeader *imetHdr = (IMETHeader *)opening_bnr;
    if ( imetHdr->fcc != 0x494D4554 /*"IMET"*/ )
    {
    WindowPrompt(tr("IMET Header wrong."), 0, tr("OK"));
    free(opening_bnr);
    return NULL;
    }


    the simple fix to not see this message is to go to the settings in GX and turn the game volume to 0. then it wont even try to load the sound and youll never see that it doesnt like the IMET.

    I had this message with a corrupted dump, after deleting and redumping the game the header was right again and the sound works. You should really try another dump/download of the game as in my understanding every opening.bnr should have the IMET header and if your loader can't find these few bytes the file has a strange problem.
