    So I loaded up a backup of link's crossbow training (PAL, scrubbed) to test it out on gamma.

    I made a profile and went to practice, starting level 1.

    The level is taking a long time to load... I figured it must be a freeze, so i press some buttons on the wii. When i press the home button, the usual Home button sound is heard, but the screen remains frozen. I waited a few minutes before powering off the wii and the screen goes blank.

    Then i power on the wii. Guess what, the first thing that appears is the same frozen screen... and no sound system menu sound so it didnt seem to be running.
    I was a little worried so i ejected the disc and booted again, to the same result.
    Next I pulled the power plug out, waited a few moments and then plugged it back in, and started the Wii. guess what, the same screen appears.

    At this point i was quite freaked, but i had never heard of such a brick before and failed to see how it would be possible.
    One more reboot and i mashed a few buttons, fortunately the screen spontaneously changed back to the warning screen and the system menu loaded.

    So does anyone know what happened?

    You sure didn't play the original game of it on your wii right?
    And Nintendo updated your wii to 5.8 [​IMG] so they can brick/ban your wii but... you had luck you life in 2008 December or else, you would be banned...

    (What ever...)
