    So if I am to understand this right, games will load faster when running through WiiFlow than when running through the ScummVM menu?

    No it's not wiiflow related, the official and the 2.1.0 test build in the opening post are slow.

    The modified mod18 has a diifferent code and loads faster. It has other changes you'll see in the Readme. It can be used as a WiiFlow plugin or through Homebrew Channel as well.

    Not sure about blade runner crashes. Perhaps Ram issues again?

    I tried mod18 from the HBC and it seems that it's not freezing anymore, even after 1h+ of gameplay. Tried it several times.
    From Wiiflow the lock-ups are random, but sooner or later they happen.

    There is also a showstopping bug, though, but it's already been addressed and fixed in ScummVM (not wii related): when you start Chapter 2, the Tyrell building is missing from your map so you can't go there and advance with the story.

    If it's a freeze more than a code dump, perhaps it could be the hdd sleeping for some reason.
    In fact, in the very first mods, Fix94 added a function to wake up usb drives. I've removed since I was concentrating on other bugs. Now, I guess it was there for a reason. I'll try put this code back when I have time.

    Yes, I should have mentioned that I was getting freezing issues and no code dumps.
    The freezes are occurring in other games too:
    Might & Magic 4 - Clouds of Xeen
    Might & Magic 5 - Darkside of Xeen
    Zork - Great Inquisitor

    Maybe they happen in other games too, but I just focused on these games.

    The strange part however, is that last night I tried booting Scummvm from the HBC, and I was able to play Blade Runner for over an hour without any freeze. Normally, it would freeze
    I also tried to stop playing for several minutes until the wiimote disconnected, but after that the game resumed without issues. I will try again to see if I was just lucky
