    For some reason I've searched throughout this forum for info on how to get MH3 working, and I've tried pretty much everything an nothing seems to work.

    I'm running an NTSC 4.0 SysMenu with IOS249, HBC, NeoGamma, etc., all the goods. So far I've downloaded the scrubbed version of MH3 and burned it onto a disc. I tried launching it with NeoGamma, regular old Gamma Backup Launcher, SoftChip Launcher r90 and r96 (neither of those worked on all possible configurations), Gamecube Backup Launcher (which oddly enough recognized it but wouldn't load anything), I tried using Gecko OS 1.9 and rebooting with region free in the hopes that it would show up in the disc channel...

    None of it worked, and I have no idea why. Does anybody have a definite answer for this? I really don't want to have to install SoftMii just to play one game...

    Yeah it is just the demo, but apparently it's playable. I have yet to get MHG working because the copy I downloaded had corrupt parts in it, but I'll see if the next one works.

    It won't work on Gamma, because Gamma detects it as gamecube game. Tell me what disc id it has so i can prepare a NeoGamma test version for you. Also what error do you get exactly in SoftChip? Did you try disc region video mode, Remove 002 off, Fake IOS Version on, and force language to the language of the game? Is your SoftChip able to play anything?

    When I run it in SoftChip, the ID comes up as DMHJ. When I run the game in BL or NeoGamma it doesn't give me a game ID; it just loads. When I run it in GCBL it shows up as "Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) (TRIAL)".

    I've tried Disc Region Mode: Default, with Remove 002 both enabled and disabled, and with Fake IOS Version both on and off. I've tried to Force Language to Japanese every time. Nothing seems to work. When I try the combination you gave me above, the game seems to load (I don't get the read error) but as the coding appears it stops when it hits "TICKET AT: 0x80a60ce0".

    When I try IOS55 instead of 249 I get the read error: "loctl error (DI_Read ID)"

    And I was successful in getting SoftChip r90 to run Super Mario Galaxy and COD WaW, so it's probably not SoftChip.

    Anyway, thanks in advance for the help.

    Update: I got MHG to work with SoftChip r90 up until the point where it asks me to plug in a Classic Controller. I don't have one, so I don't know if it works beyond that.

    No such luck with MH3 though. Maybe it's just a bad dump? I'll try redownloading it from another source.

    I have it softmodded; I don't have a chip.

    In any case, I'm trying USB Loader right now, but even if this works it's a huge pain in the ass to have to use a drive specifically for one game.

    You don't need a classic controller for the demo like you do with G.

    And apparently WiiPower is working on a NeoGamma fix as we speak.

    No i'm not working at a fix. I did everything that came to my mind to make the game compatible. If you can't get it to work at all on NeoGamma, SoftChip and different usb loaders, it might be a IOS Reloading game, something new or just bad .iso or burn.

    When I said fix I meant the Neogamma version you just sent me. Even though it didn't work for me it might work for someone else.

    I'll try reburning the disc though, that might have been the problem.

    Well I have no idea what the problem is; I tried reburning and that didn't work. It doesn't make sense how it's working for everyone else except me. :/

    I'd try a different source because maybe it's a bad dump, but there's only 1 that I know of.
