    Okami (PAL decrypted)

    cios_fix by ppc_gba:
    Wiigator 0.1 without hooktype set: green screen
    Wiigator 0.1 hooktype set to GC: works
    Wiigator 0.1 mod by ppc_gba: works
    Waninkoko 0.1: green screen

    0.3 cios NOT the retry retry fix version:
    Wiigator 0.3 (without read retry fix) all hooktype settings: Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen
    Wiigator 0.3 (mod by myself, all hooktype stuff removed): Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen
    Wiigator 0.3(entryholder bugfix by requiem4d): Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen

    In 0.1 it worked and in 0.3 it stops working. My suggestion here is, that there's a bug in the cios.

    Bugs corrected:
    Disaster: Day of Crisis (PAL decrypted)

    cios_fix by ppc_gba:
    Wiigator 0.1 Hooktype set to GC: works, hangs on stage 8
    Wiigator 0.1 mod by ppc_gba: works, hangs on stage 8
    Waninkoko 0.1: works, even stage 8


    0.3 cios NOT the retry retry fix version:
    Wiigator 0.3: works, hangs on stage 8
    Wiigator 0.3(entryholder bugfix by requiem4d): works, even stage 8

    Waninkoko 0.1 and Wiigator 0.1 use the same cios. ==> My suggestion is, that there's a small bug inside Wiigator's loader itself and it was there since the first version. *update*: Seems my suggestion was right, there was a small bug inside the loader

    I know there are other games with the "Remove disc and turn off screen", do they work with the 0.1 loaders? Please add your setup of ioses, because there are people with a strange setup(247 for 0.1 and 249 for 0.3) reporting "Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen" games working and Disaster stage 8 not.

    All other games: Please add if they worked with another version/loader. If a game doesn't work in any loader, please use the compatibility thread. Exception: If you have a suggestion why a certain game does't work, please post here, too.

    *Update*:
    Please don't post here, if you are unsure if you might have a bad burn. If you have problems with games which are reported working, post in the other thread.


    Please keep all questions about, "how do i get both loaders working at the same time?"(if anyone has) in this thread:

    i think for any real beta testing to happen the : Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen should be ignored all together..everyone knows that, that bug esists and also that the same error can occur with badly burnt disks or cheap media etc..withing 30 mins this thread will be filled with peope saying that : Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen error occured on xxxxx game and then next post will be well it works on mine..

    for beta testing purposes i would concentrate on anything that ISNT : Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen related and occurs with everyone and not odd 1 or 2..

    i'm pretty sure waninkoko/wiigator and all the new coders are working solely on fixing the : Remove disc and turn off blablabla screen andcould do without another 50 pages of it happens to me..well it doesnt hapen to me threads lol

    I know that a lot of people are having problems with bad burns. But i asked "do they work with the 0.1 loaders?" If anybody has a bad burn, the game won't launch in the old loaders.

    The intention of this thread is to find the bugs not related to bad burns. Updated the first post.

    Wiigator should have a look at this. This is actually a legitimate problem and this is one of the reasons he had an open beta. These games work in some loaders and don't in others.

    EDIT Adding SPM to the mix:

    Super Paper Mario (PAL/NTSC)

    Wiigator 0.1: Slow loading obviously, tends to crash after major events (boss fights) and would perma freeze at the start of Chapter 2-3.
    Waninkoko 0.1: I don't know about this one.

    Wiigator 0.3: Works fine until Chapter 2-3. Unlike 0.1 it doesn't crash at the start, but rather at the end of the chapter. However pass Chapter 2-3 there are no reported issues.

    I tried this on a fresh Wii though i did use the 'strange' setup of leaving v0.3 loader alone and using cios247 for dvdx and loader v0.1
    The only thing i didnt do was install the cios_fix and i couldnt get that game working at all.
    I tried it with loads of different setups and options , with GBpad and with VI and pretty much everything else and it didnt work for me at all.
    As i say - the only thing i didnt try was installing cios_fix by ppc_gba on that particular Wii so i cant confirm or deny if that was the issue , but i can say that without it the game defo didnt work using any setting as i tested them all on both loaders.

    I'm pretty sure, if you try cios_fix(with DVDx) and Wiigator 0.1(Hooktype to GC) and on a fresh wii it will work.

    I can DEFINITIVELY say that the majority of disc read errors are NOT bugs with WiiGator's loader, but instead with the cIOS.

    Pending being proven wrong, of course.

    I have a theory:

    The games with "An error occurred, please remove the disc and power off" in 0.3 are the same games which need the hooktype set to GC*update*to work with 0.1*/update*. In Okami this is ecactly the case.

    Please disprove or try to prove it!

    - Does anybody have a game working with 0.1 and not working with 0.3 where 0.1 does not need the hooktype set to GC and with the "An error..." screen in 0.3?
    - Does anybody have a game where the hooktype needs to be set to GC with 0.1, and 0.3 working?




    PS: Please don't use Wiigator 0.1 mod by ppc_gba to test this, it sets to GC automatically or does something else.
    PPS: I shouldn't post in the middle of the night

    Just tested both Okami and Star Wars Force Unleashed.

    Both had the hooktype set to GC, and both failed to boot. Got the "an error has occured" message.

    I beat starwars the force unleashed about a month ago. I used wanis loader v1 to play it it was patched as well. After reading this thread I decided to try it under wii gators loader v3 and I instantly get the read error.

    I just tried opening it with wani's v1 and now I'm getting a subsystem error (ret = -6) this game use to work wtf , I have about 220 games I really don't wanna have to test them all. Is there a fix out there for this yet?

    or can I unistall this loader and reinstall wani's ?

    I have games which work fine on a modchipped Wii booting through the original boot channel, but not on a Wii with no modchip and booking through the backup loader. NO DVD error. [​IMG]

    I have 0.3 fresh install, no previous loaders or cIOSes or even DVDx.
    I'll do some tests as I have more media to run and see what happens.
    Otherwise, A++ on what you're doing
