    I made a New Super Mario Bros. Wii rom hack and tried putting it on an USB through WFBS Manager. When I tried to load the game on USB Loader GX it worked until I went into a save file. Inside a save file my game crashed and I had a black screen where I could do nothing. The iso works fine on dolphin. Any ideas on how to get my iso to work?

    WBFS Manager and WBFS as a partition type is not recommended anymore. You might want to look into converting the HDD to FAT32 using wbfs2fat.py.

    WBFS partitions are prone to corruption and can't store save files.

    did you change the gameID?
    That game has a piracy check, and USBLoaderGX is patching it but only if it detects the GameID (SMNP01, SMNE01, SMNJ01)
    or maybe your mod is affecting the dol and the patches are located at different location, but I don't think you ever modified the dol, only the resources, so it's probably a different gameID or you did something which crashes on real hardware that Dolphin can "pass through" without crashing.
    emulators are usually less strict than real hardware.

    Here we go! Mama mia!
    What !!! What the version are you used ?? Pal or NTSC ? And why did you change the game ID ??? The problems is there. The USA NTSC version [SMNE01] and the Europa version PAL is [SMNP01].

    NSMBW needs a patch to work because it uses the burst cutting area of the disc as protection like Gamecube discs did. USB Loader GX determines whether the patch needs to be applied by the title ID, so you'll either have to keep the original ID or compile GX with the new ID included.

    Before I changed the Game ID I tried running the game and it still wouldn't work, however I think I changed the name to something other than the original when I was trying that. Does the name matter?

    i used wii backup manager to convert the game and it worked perfectly for me try it and see if it works for you (it automatically changes the titles and everything for you if you goto settings and enable it)

    I would try an unmodified disc image first and make sure it works then go from there.

    The unmodified disc had a black screen on boot.

    Well I know that the game works, I was playing it last night, but mine came off my retail disc. Perhaps check the game partition with Dolphin and make sure it's not corrupted?

    I think it may be a problem with when I added a code to unlock all worlds then later I took it off and it corrupted my saves somehow.
