    The game starts fine, but when I select start game, and choose one of the 3 (Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2, Metroid Prime 3) the game stops and I am taken to the home menu.

    I'm running from Wiiflow, do I have to install anything to play?

    make sure you have installed wiiflow using the newest version of d2x cios, follow the installation instructions on wiiflowiki

    You have to use cIOS d2x v6 and a loader that has an option for Block IOS Reload. If Wiiflow doesn't have it, then use Configurable USB Loader. I personally just use Neogamma.

    use the alt dols, there should be a game selection metroid 1,2,3 to choose from when you click on the cover (before you start the game)

    Block IOS reload or start with alternative DOL (mp1.dol, mp2.dol or mp3.dol). Note that you must first launch the game normally and create save etc before you can start the game(s) with alt. dol.

    Remember, if you choose to go the alt dol route, you will be locked on veteran difficulty

    No you wont. Not if you start by creating a save game in the original launcher.

    When was that fixed, just out of curiosity? When I used to play MPT like that I would select Hyper, play a bit, come back to the menu and find the difficulty set to Veteran.

    use the latest rev of UsbLoaderGX from the Beta version issue on the tracker, auto sets the block reload function, no need for alt dol. just set vidtv to stop the green video's.

    Your setup is a bit outdated. That's all.
    You can forget about alt dol's, that's an outdated cumbersome way of dealing with MPT that worked when there wasn't IOS reload blocking.
    Go to the wiiflow wiki and carefully follow the instructions there to install d2x v7 (v8 is out but is not too different) and grab the latest nightly wiiflow dol, not the one under "committed versions" (that one has a bug).
    After that, from the wiki:
    This will have you running MPT perfectly fine and even able to access the MP2 multiplayer game, previously inaccessible through the alt dol method.

    Note, if you launch the games via alt .dol, the difficulty is always veteran. It might be possible to change that, but nobody did it yet. Well, and if that was done, i bet it could be used to start with any difficulty like that hyper mode.

    Thats weird, because I launched the game normally, created a save game, started the game (black screen), rebooted the Wii and launched the alt.dol, and I had the correct difficulty set (easiest, lol, first FPS I played on Wii)
