    I've been having trouble loading Onslaught on my Wii. When I start it, it just leads to a black screen, and then I need to hold the power button to shut of the Wii.
    I have already installed IOS 55 and 53 but I still have this problem.
    Any help is appreciated!

    A) What's the wad's filename / where'd you get it / what's the CRC32 (google CRCDropper if you don't know)

    because:

    1) What region WAD are you loading on what region WII

    2) You may have a bad dump.

    delete it from the Wii then use FREETHEWADS and drag and drop the wad file onto the freethewads.exe file then reinstall it using wadmanager!

    !) It's a PAL wad on my North American Wii. However, I am using starfall's region free channels. AND I used an NTSC wad and it had the same results.

    2) I used 3 different dumps, none worked.

    @kobykaan I can't open Freethewads. It flashes open then closes >_>

    did you read what I actually wrote !?

    don't open it just drag your wad file onto the FREETHEWADS.exe it will flash briefly a dos window and close and that's it the wad is now REGION FREE [​IMG]

    I did, it still doesn't work. Thanks anyway though, much appreciated!

    @qlum I already used starfall to make everything region free but I will try rebooting with gecko anyway.

    Are you sure there isn't another way? Also, will all my applications and homebrew be alright if I update?

    I think we have pretty much exausted all other possibility's already [​IMG]

    and yes your apps and homebrew will be fine just make sure you read the guides on updating to 4.0 and use the 4.0 updater by Waninoko [​IMG]

    If you have starfall installed you should be good to go .... if you have access to boot 2 then installing bootmii and backing your nand up would be a good start/idea too as a double precaution [​IMG]

    Thanks but I have a few questions first.
    Will backup loader Gamma still work, and if so will it work better or worse?
    Do I need to reinstall any IOS's or CIOS's afterwards?
    Will my homebrew work as well as before or will there be problems( like DVDx or homebrew games)
    Thanks a lot for the help, sorry for all the questions.

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    its perfectly safe to use FREETHEWADS it simply removes the region barrier on the WAD FILE dont effect your system functionality and to be honest it takes LESS that 2 min to have ran it AND INSTALLED IT...I would try FREETHEWADS before i posted anymore only because I would imagine you find it very very simple...As stated above its a fast drag and drop then install...In this case its just as easy as it sounds bud [​IMG]

    The only reason why that would happen is if you are missing IOS files. Try installing IOS55.
