    Anyone knows if there is a new anti-piracy on this game?
    The game seems to load fine at first but after the intro and company logos the screen just goes black and nothing happens.
    I've read that some people have been able to get in to the game but that it freezes at random.

    Might there be a new anti-piracy on this game?

    I'm running the same setup as you and getting the same black screen. Hoping there's a workaround or fix for it.

    Did you download or rip it yourself ?

    If you downloaded paste the scene release name, I think maybe it's a bad dump and until someone says they dumped it themselves then I'll guess that;s what it is.

    More info = more help.

    So if you're reading this and have posted, please re-edit your post and puut the scene release name, and if you post after this please do the same.

    I don't have the game so I can't help other than tell you guys to put the scene release name or say you dumped it yourself. (but don't lie it wont help anyone)

    works fine from disc channel (and I've heard from neogamma disc loader)

    seems like it just doesn't like usb loading.

    It seems runs without problems via DVD.

    A friend tell me it works fine with cIOS249 Rev17 via USB. He send me images.

    I couldn't get it to load with mload-222 via USB, but it seems to work with IOS 249 and anti-002 fix.
    Using configurable loader.

    So... I tested it with WiiFlow r42_249, cios38 rev17 on a PAL 4.1 and it works fine (nothing changed in the ISO neither in configurations, only 002 fix).
    It does give black screen with 222 and 223 (WiiFlow/uLoader)
    The problem that I just noticed when I started to play it was:
    1- The game freezes when I touch this chest (sorry about the pics, but that's my tv xD)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    2- The game freezes at the second battle (with 2 monsters), when I'm almost killing the second one...

    And I really don't know why this is happening... [​IMG]

    I think the problem is somewhat similar to Monster Hunter Tri. It should work with cIOS222 v4.

    It also freezes everytime when you press the home button!

    When looking over to the PC game by UBISoft with their heavy protection it wouldn't surprise me if they started to protect their Wii games aswell.

    Chests freezing here too. Do they freeze the game if playing from a disc too?

    Lets not forget that Ubisoft holds another game that hates USB loaders

    Tom Clancy´s Splinter Cell Wii - Very Old game, 2007 i guess, and yet nobody ever found a way to run it using USB loaders

    Maybe we´ve just hit another brick wall?

    yet Red Steel 2 that just came out and is also from Ubisoft did not have any of these issues. Very strange.

    I burned the game to test it from DVD, but it has an update. I wonder if that's what's causing the freezing. But I don't want to update until I know it's safe.
