I just got Homebrew and NeoGamma working on my Wii, so the solution might be a silly error on my part during the installation.

I have a burned DVD-R copy of Paper Mario Thousand Year Door and it won't play correctly through NeoGamma. The game will appear to launch successfully from the NeoGamma screen, and I instead see a flash of green before resetting the console and returning to the Wii menu (or at least the beginning screen where you hit A for the Wii menu).

I saw another post that said to force the reloader in the GC options. That didn't work, nor did any of the other reloader options. I'm wondering if there's some combination of GC options that, or anything else that can correct this.

I'm usin the NeoGamma R9 beta. This ISO was tested with Dolphin before I burned and verified it.

Regular Gamecube games run fine with NeoGamma. Also, instead of a complete green screen, I sometimes get a black screen with 2 pink vertical lines on the left.
I don't know if that's significant, but I don't know what else to do except try every combination of GC options, which will take a long time.

Resolved.

After a lot of running around looking for the correct files, I got it running off an SD card with NeoGamma and Dios Mios Lite. I can't confirm what the original issue was, but I suspect it was the disks I was using, DVD-R Memorex. I read somewhere that I needed DVD-R to work and the store I went to only had these (probably because they're so cheap).

I ran through a lot of guides and wasted a few hours, but this was the one I was using when I finally got it right.

    @Psionic Roshambo, The disc drive wasn't meant to be a cup holder to begin with. It does look like the place to put a cup on top because the tray has a circular outline.

    RIP to those who use it for cups rather than discs.

    After you hack it the drive becomes most useful as a cup holder lol

    @Psionic Roshambo, Yes, since you can play the games off a HDD anyways.

    @K3N1, You do know that the police have dogs that can sniff out drugs pretty well.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    So using your hard drive bays as a place to store your illegal drugs is not the best idea.
