    Hi, first time poster here at gbatemp and I will start off by saying I am a huge noob at this stuff and don't really know what any of it means so please bare with me.
    I just want to find out if my Wii can play burned Wii and/or GCN games, I know it seems like an odd thing to ask, but I don't have any discs compatible with Wii games at the moment I guess because I've tried burning games on to 5 different discs (Sony DVD-R at 2x write speed, using imgburn, non-nintendo isos do write) and they won't burn, so I can't check at the moment. I guess I just really want to find out if I'm done modding because it has been an annoying process, and some of this I did months ago and I'm partly trying to figure out if I missed anything.

    My Wii is on 4.1u firmware

    I think I have IOS249 installed correctly because it says that at the bottom of the backup launcher gamma app

    Using the WAD Manager I have installed a few things, namely
    CIOS_FIX.WAD
    SoftChip.wad
    WAD MANAGER V3.wad
    Wii Gator.wad
    GC Backup Launcher-GCBL.wad
    Action Replay GCN-F23E.wad
    RVL-mios-v5.wad.out.wad

    I ran the miospatcher and it installed correctly

    My Action Replay V1.14 Loader app works perfectly with legit GameCube games which leads me to believe that it would work with burned GCN games?

    Also, since I don't have any burned Wii games I just tried running a real Wii game through the Gamma Backup Launcher and it did work, but I don't know if that means anything, probbly not.

    Anyway, I just really feel like I'm forgetting anything, any info would be helpful, because I'm really confused about this stuff [​IMG]

    All you need for USB is cIOS 249 installed, and hermes 222/223 if you want to use NTFS file system. You also need homebrew channel installed and working so you can use a USB loader program.\


    EDIT: oh wait wait, burned games.... never mind then.

    I do have the latest version of HBC, and I THINK my Wii COULD play games off a USB loader, like I have configurable USB loader and I think I did everything to get it to run, but I just don't have a free external hard drive now... I guess that would be my main problem >_> lol

    Hi,

    you said you have IOS 249 because it's displayed in NeoGamma. If you want to be sure you have it, why don't you upgrade it to the last version? It's fast and simple. The only thing you have to know is the base IOS through which installing the IOS, but you can solve your doubts here.

    Another thing: be sure to have the last NeoGamma. Here is the latest stable version (R8 Final), while here is the latest beta version (R9 RC9), that - if I'm not wrong - has been improved in GC compatibility (and other things). You can install both of them, if you want to try.

    Note: if you have problems with the installation of the cIOS (eg. error -1035), you have to delete stub IOSes with DOP-Mii. You can follow a guide here, at the entry "Deleting stub IOSs".



    Last thing: you said you couldn't burn Wii games. Why don't you check if the ISOs are good or not? You can use Wii ISO Utilities 1.1: it says if the ISOs have the right size/lenght and if there are updates. The app also patch for region and update, but I never used it to do this, so I don't know if it works or not.

    I don't understand why you don't burn a game and find out. When you don't even know yourself what you did, it's hard for us to help you, especially if you don't need help.
