Hopefully I didn't miss someone's solution to this. Hopefully I will contribute enough info that someone will be able to help. Hopefully this won't get deleted because it's asking about NSMB. I have a wii. I'm running off of a USB drive. I want to play New Super Mario Brothers Wii. But I am frustrated. EVERY time, as soon as I go down the warp pipe in world 1-2, the screen goes black, and the Wii freezes. about my Wii: it has a wiikey in it. I updated to 4.1 at some point Cios14 preloader I use WBFS Manager 3.0 to manage my drive. Things I've tried (many combinations of the following): cios14&15 latest wiiflow, latest neogamma, latest usbloader gx, latest uloader, any of which I've been told will run it IOS53 patched and unpatched three different hard drives PAL and NTSC versions, patched and unpatched, whole isos and scrubbed isos It doesn't matter what I do. Every cursed time, as soon as I go down that pipe, the screen goes black, and my Wii ceases responding. I thought I was reasonably competent. Now I'm doubting myself. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to give them a shot. At this point, it's no longer about playing the game, but about winning. Thanks.
