    I know this probably has been answered already, but I can't seem to get Skyward Sword to run(Wii motion Plus video). When trying to install the was files, I get an error(maybe because I'm on a vWii?) and there is no option in wiiflow to select an alternate dol, even in the game settings. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also at the moment I am not at my house and am unable to access my Wii U.

    I have the same problem. I have been trying forever to get this game to work but i think I'm missing something.

    Things I tried so far, but got same result (black screen):
    - all IOS (249, 250 and 251 with "v10 beta52 d2x-v10-beta52-vWii" and beta53).
    - Wiiflow, USB Loader GX or Configurable Usb Loader (all up to date).
    - All sorts of game settings (nandemu off, 002 fix on, video modes, alternate dol).
    - NTSC and PAL version of the game.

    It's like every game I try works but not this one.

    Guess I'll have to get Skyward Sword HD...

    Gambia, The
    The solution is mindboggling simple:

    You have not watched the Wii Motion Plus Video :-)
    On the Disc there is a video about the Motion Plus. If you have not watched it, you cannot play and get a black screen.
    I'm not using Wiiflow, so I do not know how to do this with Wiiflow.
    In USB-CFG Loader all you have to do is change the DOL file to PLAYER.DOL, start the game. Video begins to play, wathc the video,
    change the DOL back and. voila...game works.

    Regards,
    Kirky

    Edit: Just looked up Wiiflow...it does not have the option to change the boot.dol.
    Just install USB-CFG and boot the PLAYER.DOL with that. After watching the video it should also work in WiiFlow.
