    So I downloaded The Wii de asubo Pikmin for wii when it came out and I was loving it, and now that it came out in English, i quickly grabbed that. Whats strange is that if i try to run it though the disk channel, it just goes to a black screen. If it run it through the gamma backup channel, it shows a green screen. I must run it with the Backup launcher on the homebrew channel for it to run. I am not sure why. Its kinda annoying but at least it works. I think the backup launcher on the homebrew channel I have is just a different version of gamma or something but still. Dont know why it wont work anywhere else. I guess it would have to do something with softmii or preloader. I belive all of my other games are working.

    I read that it aint working on NTSC - U wiis, even if patched.

    It aint working on mine. Only shows up at the disk channel, then black screen.

    Are you PAL or NTSC?

    So the main.dol doesn't have NTSC-U data, that's why, try patching the .iso to NTSC before burning it, don't remember why the green screen issues was..!! [​IMG]

    Has Nintendo finally figured out a way to stop the loading of foreign backups? Or has someone dumped the game poorly?

    I've read about 3 treads. It's not working for NTSC just PAL.
    Mines is [Wii] Pikmin [PAL][MULTI5]. The NTSC version is suppose to be release March 9, 2009.

    Well the game only contains PAL video code and only runs in PAL video mode for now. If your tv supports that, you are fine. I guess you default channel has force NTSC integrated, and this results in a green screen freeze. If it's a autoboot one, tap 1 while starting and look at the settings.

    if you installed softmii correctly try launching it with geko through hbc.

    [​IMG] How do you hate pikmin?! I love that game. I started playing it again now and its a blast!

    For everyone else, it does seem to work with gecko like said and also anohter backup launcher that is on my homebrew channel (I think its the one you can get through the homebrew browser). So if you are NTSC, use gecko or that. Unless any of the other ways work, like patching the ISO or holding one if you have force NTSC.

    I have some version of geko i think 1.0.7 or something like that and it won't work for me. Did you use any settings or forces?

    It probably works for them because their TV supports PAL. No settings forced = PAL video.

    It's not that I'm tripping it's just that I dl from a private torrent site so I have to seed back or I get banned. My router limits me from seeding to like 20 kbps, which is a real pain in the ass when you want to seed a 4gb game...and now I'm going to download ANOTHER one, and to top it off the dl speeds are like 700 kbps + so I can't even seed for a long time because they dl it in like an hour or so. So I'm just trying to make the best of it and see if this one works. [​IMG]
