    I can't get Pikmin 2 (the new japanese Wii version) to work. If I try to run it through the disk channel I get a grey screen and the controller starts vibrating like crazy. If I run it through the backup loader in the homebrew channel the game works until the opening cutscene when you start a new game finishes then it freezes and the controller vibrates like crazy again.

    I'm pretty positive I have all the IOS's that I need.. I don't think the game would work at all if I didn't but I double checked with Wiiscrubber and I seem to have them all. Does anyone know what my problem could be? and has anyone succesfully gotten this game to work?

    by the way my wii is on 3.2 and I have a wiikey 1.9

    Try using a launcher like softchip, enable the 002fix and set the language to japanese..!! [​IMG]

    Hi, what is softchip? a different loader? I have a US wii, and some JP and EU games dont run on it, compatibility issues, so will this help me on that case?

    Softchip is a loader which allows you to pick which IOS a game uses besides what language, etc. It may or may not help with PAL games, it should work with any JPN game though if the issue isn't an IOS one.

    Using a regular loader you can also force japanese language which works for most if not all games.
