I have long had problems USB loading Skyward Sword that no one could explain. I pretty much have no problems with any other games I have tried. I mainly use USB Loader GX and but tried all kinds of things to get this game to work and occassionally it would slightly but then would randomly black screen and freeze. Usually when first loading the game from save but occasionally when loading to a new area. I mainly used my hard drive FAT32 formatted to 32 kb clusters because that seems to be the best way to go. I first noticed NTFS seemed to work better when I gave my old Wii to a friend and didn't want to mess with his existing hard NTFS formatted hard drive he was using for backing up lots of stuff. I was testing out his setup and was amazed to find Skyward Sword seemed to run fine even though it had always given me issues on the same wii (same rip BTW and same method of softmod- Maui Frogs guide). So recently I upgraded my hard drive and so ended up going from my first 80GB wii hard drive I had been using to a 500 GB one. Everything was working fine but Skyward sword still black screened like before. Thinking my friends NTFS hard drive seemed to work I formatted my 80GB to NTFS and put SKyward Sword on it. IT WORKS PERFECT. Same softmod, same rip, same hard drive....the only variable is the NTFS vs FAT32 formatting. NTFS works and Fat32 has issues. I have never seen or heard anywhere that NTFS would work better for anything on Wii so I have to ask what the heck is going on? Am I out of my mind or is this know info that is just not well publicized. No one who tried to help me with this game ever suggested trying NTFS. Is that even a thing to try? Kirbys Epic Yarn is the only other game that has given me unusual trouble so I may see if NTFS fixes that too.
