    Wasn't sure where to post this, and I've yet to find a solution by searching. So far, I've only had a problem with Spore Hero and Valhalla Knights, where if I go to exit into a certain area, it will hang at the loading screen every time. If this were the DS, I'd say it was anti-piracy protection. Anyways, I think I have everything mostly up to date - I'm on v4.1u, WD Mybook 250GB hdd, using CoverFlow and USBLoader GX, I can play Rockband 2, Guitar Hero 5, Beatles Rockband with all instruments ( which leads me to believe it's not the ios, but I can't think of anything else it might be ). Never encountered this problem before last night.

    Is there a newer version of cIOS 249 that I should be using? And how can I tell what version I'm using? Or would I possibly have to merge 249 with another cIOS?

    To be a little more specific, the Wii isn't freezing exactly, it just hangs at a loading screen, playing the loading animation over and over.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    **Solved - A fresh download and a fresh install of the game through WBFS Manager was all it took! Thanks for the help!

    Hmmm... That's tough as it could be any number of things. As far as I'm aware the last Waninkoko's cIOS is rev14, if you got that you're good as long as cIOS is concerned. You may also want to try running the games on Hermes' cIOS 222. Also, since you're running from an external HD there might be some tweaking in the loader to get the games running ranging from forcing TV modes to Alternate Dol.

    I've adjusted settings in the loader itself, but it hasn't seemed to change anything. I've got force NTSC and anti-002 set as default in WiiFlow. I'll try Hermes 222 though, I think that was the only one I hadn't tried.

    **EDIT Hermes 222 isn't working either!

    I am actually seeing the same behavior with Disney Sing It: Pop Hits on the initial load screen. You get a microphone loading screen and then it just hangs.

    I remember reading it used a new cios, like cios 277 or something like that?

    I did a quick google search for cIOS 277 and 227 and it didn't turn up anything. I just tried downgrading from rev 14 to rev 13b with no luck on 249 or 223. This is really pretty frustrating! I wonder why it doesn't seem to be a larger problem in the community? I suppose it could just be a few select games that aren't all that popular? Though I'd have to say, Spore Hero and Valhalla Knights are surprisingly good.
