    Okay, so I've got Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop (NTSC) on my flash drive, ready to play. No other games have caused me problems whatsoever.
    But whenever I first gain control of Frank at the beginning of the game, after talking with Carlito, my controller stops responding. The game still runs, with Frank going through his idle animations, and the sound still goes in the background as well, but I just can't start playing.

    I've tried running the game on USB Loader GX, and Configurable USB Loader, but I don't know if I change some settings or... something.

    Can someone help me? D8

    I'm using IOS249, Rev 19... I think? I'm not quite sure.
    For the versions of my USB Loaders:
    USB Loader GX Version 1.0 r866
    Configurable USB Loader Version 56

    Can bad game rips really... just... act weird like this?

    i've seen games freeze at the loading screen just because of bad rips, so yes, its possible.

    what base wad does your cios use? 57 or 38 should work

    it doesn't hurt to just reinstall it... I'm not sure how to tell what base is currently installed

    configurable usb loader may tell u somewhere in the options (I know it tells u for hermes cios's when the game is loading, i dont think it does for wanins cios's though... but like I said it may be somewhere in the options)

    He is talking about the cios. It would be better to rip the game again and reinstall the cios. What he meant about the base is that depending with what base the cios is installed the chances the game will run better or worse. You have to test it yourself.

    Sounds... complicated.

    I'm going to try another rip, see if that one is any better. Hopefully it is. I fear I'd just mess up my Wii at this point if I tried tinkering with the other settings. ._.;

    I just want to mention that the game isn't outright freezing, so much as the controller just stops functioning. The reset button won't reset the console back to the Wii Menu, but other than those two things, the game seems to run.

    reinstalling a cios sounds complicated to u? It's really easy, if re-ripping the game doesn't work, try launching the game with all the different cIOSs u ALREADY have installed (222, 249 etc.), if it still doesn't work, just reinstall cIOS249v19[57] then try again (pay attention to make sure the install is successful... if slot249 is stubbed, it will fail)

    Thank you, I will try that in a little while.
    It probably is very easy... but I still don't want to screw up my console. Almost did in the past.

    just for your peace of mind, all cIOSs are not used in normal wii functions, but instead only for homebrew. So if u somehow manage to screw up a cIOS install, u CANNOT brick this way, worst case, some apps wont work until u install a good cios
