    Might as well start the topic. What's needed to run SS on the Wii? I have a 4.2u Wii with cios rev 19. Should I modmii this thing? And how would I go about updating without a firmware update? I think it was a syscheck?

    No you dont, v6 works fine and v7 is not public yet, so remove the link.


    Edit: Make sure block IOS reload is enabled.

    Every loader is different. I only use cfg usb loader and it is in the settings. I strongly suggest this loader as it is the best.

    Then you're probably like me and actually bought a game with wii+ controls beforehand.

    Tested on: 4.3E + cIOS249[56]-d2x-v6 + .wbfs on NTFS
    Loader settings: USBLoader GX + 002 fix "Anti" + Block IOS reload "auto"

    Game runs fine.

    I tested it extensively on UNEEK+DI r169 with a virgin 4.3U nand, and the game runs perfectly there.
    I also briefly tested it on my real NAND (USBLoader GX on 4.2U w/ cIOS249[56]-d2xv6) and the game seemed to run okay there too.

    Actually USBL GX has a higher compatibilty now AND can save all your saves directly to your SD card ( built in NAND Emulation WOOT~!!). ( keeps your Wii nice and clean)
    And it has in my opinion better security for kids ( can lock down the lader with pass directly from the app )
    Also USBL GX can load games from disc, HDD and DVD.
    And a FAR better GUI. And official channel.
    ANd VERY stable Latest full version is 2.3
    No need for a PC app like the cfg configurator, all options are available through the GUI wich is a big plus IMHO.
    CFG used to be on top, but now USBL GX is for sure.

    Works well on :

    USB Loader GX (v2.3)
    D2X v7 (yes it's a public beta; I think it was v7.1D or something like that)
    Setting to "Block IOS Reloading: Auto"
    Softmodded Wii 4.3U

    Anyways been playing now for a while and it's been great. I loved "Thank you for purchasing!" at the beginning too lol I was waiting to buy the game but as long as it's out early I might as well put that $50 towards a WiiU or something else.
