    Whilst playing Kirby's Return to Dreamland (NTSC-U), I'm getting random freezes (even though the music still plays) whilst on the Lor Starcutter and the instruction screen for both of the unlockable mini-games.

    Is there is a possible fix to stop this from happening?

    That has got to be the most stupid answer, that I've ever heard! I'm sorry, but I had to say it...

    Anyway, does anyone actually have a proper actual answer to this problem?

    It is a solution though, and a real answer.

    I need an answer from someone who genuinely knows what they are actually talking about.

    As to me, just saying "buy the game" isn't really a proper answer.

    Sounds like you need to install a later version of cios d2x. It fixed my issues for this game when i did. There's a sticky on the front page but i'll be nice and post the link here.

    I've already got the latest d2x beta cIOSes installed on my own console, but I don't know if I need to set a specific cIOS though to help with game stability.

    Kirby: return to dreamland is a pretty standard game as far as cIOS goes. Which'll means that it should play fine with the cIOS with base IOS 56 (going by your signature, that'll be slot 249).

    One note, though. Like you say, you use the latest d2x beta cIOS. I know the d2x team gives pretty stable releases, but it's still called a beta for a reason. If the error doesn't go away, you may want to try with d2x-v8-final (can be downloaded through modmii).

    So, it would be recommended to rollback to v8 then?

    Yes.

    As a general rule of thumb, you shouldn't be messing with beta versions unless you're prepared that things may not work or aren't tested properly.

    Rolled back to final-v8 and I'm still getting random freezes on the starship and on the instruction screens for both of the mini-games.

    Edit: My old favourite loader CFG Loader MOD needed the IOS changing from "Auto" to "249".

    I have been starting to use USB Loader GX lately though, because of the channel loading.

    I have almost the same setup as you. The differences are that I use wiiflow, I dumped the game myself, and I live in the US so I use NTSC not PAL. The game works perfectly fine for my kids.

    Like I said, it freezes when your on the starship and the instructions screen for both of the mini-games.

    If the cIOS which is loaded isn't set correctly within CFG Loader, it will freeze. I haven't got a clue how to do the same with USB Loader GX though as it still freezes.

    I didn't even think about it until you said something. It's the video mode patching thats causing it to lock up. So either use a PAL version of the game or use crediars patch.

    How would I go about using the patch? As I'm wondering if it's already supported with loaders like USB Loader GX & CFG Loader MOD.

    I'm not sure bc I've never had to use the patch, but if you google it then I'm sure you'll find instructions. Or just get the PAL version of the game and you wont have to worry about anything.

    I hate to say it, but this is where "buy the game" would have solved the problem, even when ripping it to your hard drive, because you would have bought the PAL version and then your issues would have been solved.

    I think, I might try and buy it preowned next week or download the PAL version.

    Although, thanks for the help anyway. :)

    Edit: I did some research and I didn't know that it was known as Kirby's Adventure Wii in Europe.
