What does that mean? Could you describe your issue and what you did you fix the problem?


PS: A list with working games is not needed for softmii, softmii has a compatibility rate of 95% or more. Working games here would only mess up the list

My system was 3.2e with wiigator cios with gamma 002 channels before i installed softmii, all my games seem to work fine (exactly as they did with gamma) but i have this bug/thing with force region hack where i have to disable the force region to play pal, and reenable it to play ntsc else i get black screens respectively.

Plus NTSC-U games: DBZBT3, Rygar, godfather, scarface.

plus all my PAL games: family ski, kororinpa,

BTW i think its DISK AREA CHECK instead of region, thats fixed it.

Just softmii'd another wii using 0.9.5 installer. when i put it on my SD card, i updated the hacks ini and the preloader version to 0.27.

Again, all games working, but on this one i have a green bar at the bottom of the screen (seemingly instead of borders ?? ) for my NTSC-J games.

EDIT: swapped the wii's tv settings to 60hz and borders gone!

WOOT!

EDIT 2:

not sure if this is a factor, but im NOT messing with the health screens. i skip that section in the softmii .doc file.

EDIT 3:

Updated my hacks.ini to include (at the top) :

[Replace healthwarning with backmenu]
version=290
offset=0x81626708
value=0x813EADF8

which wasnt present in the "fixed" one from softmii 1.0 (guessing it would negate their custom health screens)

seems that way wiisel.

All games working in colour, where as gamma used to load some in b/w and some colour depending on region (used neorames PAL60 auto boot to overcome this in the past) on this old 50/60 TV.

I'm doing my third wii now (yay i bothered to bring it with me to downgrade!), however i cant seem to downgrade it ARC keeps installing the first 15 then claiming it needs a network to continue.... but it just did it to 2 other wii's..... and its not a 3.4 thing, cos its 3.3e...

... tried it again... still no downgrading action... hmmm.....

EDIT:

ok dunnno wtf is going on, it took 7 attemps to downgrade!

i changed nothing, just ran ARC 7 times until it went through.

wtf?!

Have you managed to get these games working yet wiigee?

I have tried your hacks Kiiwii but I am still unable to load cooking mama world tour NTSC.

I have other NTSC games but they must have PAL video in them as well because they all work.

To get cm world tour to work I have to change my region to NTSC.
