First off, hello to the forum. I have followed this very nice tutorial (Installing Waninkoko's IOS249 for use with USB Loader) to the letter, and have the newest revision of ios249 installed. Neogamma will load games from a backup DVD well enough, though the slow access suffered from the fact its a backup is killing me. The game is an English translation of Fatal Frame 4, which was fan translated since it will never be released in the US. It is a pre-patched ISO of the Japanese DVD, and accesses the drive often, making for anoying stutter when playing. Due to this, I have been trying to run it from a USB stick. It is an 8gb sandisk cruzer, formatted and loaded with the game via the Wii Backup Manager, in the WBFS. The various loaders I have tried, including Neogamma, USBloader, CFG Usb Loader, and 2 or 3 others, all see the game and give me its info. However, when I start the game from any of these, the same thing happens. When using ios249, the screen goes black, and the Wii remote lights turn off. If I use ios222 or 223, the lights on the controller flicker, but come back on, yet the screen stays black indefinitely. I have tried revision 19, then deleted it and tried rev 14 for giggles, and 249 rev 14 doesnt turn off the lights on the controller, but still doesnt load. Could I be missing something? 249rev19 loads the game off DVD via Neogamma without so much as a delay, but I cannot seem to get the game to load at all from USB. I do have the USB stick plugged into the port clossest to the edge of the system. The wii is patched to 4.2, but I do have the HBC installed and many games like Doom and Powder running on it, so I think I have done most of the stuff correctly. Anyway, if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them. Love this game and I would like to play it without the DVD slowdowns. Thanks.
