    I'm trying to use ocarina cheats on some Virtual Console games I've got installed (Super Mario 64 and Super Smash Bros.), but they don't seem to do anything since the game starts up normally.

    I tried googling a bit, and the only results I got were outdated tutorials using an outdated GeckoOS launcher.

    Both the games and my wii are from the PAL region.

    I'm using USB Loader GX, latest version (I know, saying "latest version" doesn't help much, but I couldn't find the version number and I tried to update it and it said that it was already on latest version).

    What can I do to use ocarina cheats on VC games?

    (Inb4 someone saying "Use an emulator n00b")

    Just did some more research.
    Is Gecko + Patched IOS36 really the only way?
    Why?

    try editing the way the VC games are launched :
    USBGX settings > loader settings > Channel mode : edit that option (normal <-> boot dol)

    maybe it will help.

    If not, it's an issue with USBLoaderGX, VC patching function has a bug. Try with Wiiflow, I know its VC patching function is working.

    Tried that, no luck.
    Also tried with WiiFlow and it does the same, it loads the game normally, no cheats

    Tried it and it kicks me back to the Homebrew Channel when trying to load a VC channel, with or without cheats

    sorry, I'm clueless :(
    I don't understand why it does that. if you have IOS36 it should work, unless it reboots to the respective IOS after applying the patches, in which case you'll need all the official IOS too.
    I suppose you are on 4.3x, so you shouldn't miss any IOS.

    I can't think why that homebrew doesn't work for you, nor why cheats don't work with wiiflow.

    I'm clueless too, but don't worry, I'll end up using an emulator, thanks for your help :)
