Here's my fix for the Metroid other M Ridley cutscene freeze. And it may help for the Baby's cry cutsene freeze. If you use NTFS HDD partition you should be fine. NTFS supports files over 4GB. If you have WBFS HDD Partition - I don't know. You could try the following it may work but I'm just guessing since I don't know the WBFS file structure. If you have FAT32 HDD try this fix it worked for me. I'm using FAT32 HDD and Metroid other M NTSC (retail) game partition only. If you leave the update partition in you should be getting the baby's cry freeze. If you take it out and have only the game partition you should get the Ridley/anthony freeze. With the update partition still in the 4gb split point is pushed up sooner in the game to the baby's cry cutscene. Otherwise it occurrs later at the Ridley cutscene. So if you are having the baby's cry freeze just remove the update partition first and then do the following fix for the ridley scene freeze. It seems to me the ridley movie was right in the middle of the split which meant only the first half was loaded, played, and then froze because the other half was still on the HDD. The Solution I came up with was to use Wiiscrubber to extract the movie (dm35_01_cut08b.sfd) which is right before the ridley movie (dm36to43.sfd). I then used a hex editor to append zero's to the end of it thus increasing it's file size but not affecting the movie. I made it large enough so that when you use wii backup manager to transfer the game to HDD the split occurrs where those zero's are and the entire Ridley movie gets put on the second half of the split. And then used wiiscrubber to replace the original. I tried it and it played perfectly. Here is the new resized dm35_01_cut08b.sfd - removed - since I'm not allowed to post my resized file you will just have to get a hex editor and edit your own. I would make it the same size as dm36to43.sfd transfer your metroid other m from your wii HDD to your pc HDD. Also backup the game and delete the one on your Wii HDD. Use wiiscrubber to replace the original movie (dm35_01_cut08b.sfd). You will have to scroll all the way down to the 'Movies' folder. Once there right click and select replace. Now close wiiscrubber and transfer the new ISO to your Wii HDD with wii backup manager. If it doens't work you still have the backup that you should have made. Also, obviously you could just use the retail disc to get by the freeze and then go back to using your USB loader. Or you could have two ISO's of the game. #1 with update partiton #2 without update partition Use #1 to get by baby's cry freeze and then switch to #2 to get by ridley freeze. and switch back to #1 if you want to start a new game. This would be a lot of work of course. Please let us know if this works for you or not.
