Hey guys! After a long time, I decided I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and went ahead and tried to get my Wii setup to load games from my external hard drive. I think I'm pretty close, but I'm hung up at a spot and am unsure as to how to proceed. First, I followed the Complete SoftMod Guide (http://www.completesoftmodguide.tk/) to install the Homebrew Channel and restore the Trucha Bug on my launch Wii running 4.2U (I had softmodded the Wii in the past, but did a standard 4.2 update through the Wii to play SMG2). I followed the instructions completely, using DOP-Mii to reintroduce the correct IOS and remove the stub IOS files afterwards. After this, I used Lifehacker's guide (http://lifehacker.com/5518518/how-to-back-up-and-play-your-wii-games-from-an-external-hard-drive) to install the cIOS I needed. I followed the link provided (http://filetrip.net/f9426-cIOS-Installer-38r17.html) but was told that there was a newer version available. I ran cIOS Installer Xr19, selected IOS36 for the first part and then was prompted to choose among five different IOS files to use as the "base". I chose IOS38 because the website (http://filetrip.net/f9911-cIOS-Installer-Xr19.html) said it was the most stable. After doing this, I used WBFS Manager 3.0 to format an external drive I have and copied an already-created ISO of "Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (NTSC-J)" to the drive. I ran USB Loader GX from the Homebrew Channel and it saw the ISO just fine, but when I tried to run it, I got a black screen with some thin, green lines at the top, appearing like some sort of graphical distortion. Thinking this was because it was a Region 2 game, I installed and used Priiloader to make my Wii region-free. The issue still occurs. I then tested a standard NTSC-U game I had as well ("House of the Dead: OVERKILL"), but experienced the same problem as with TvC. I'm sure there's a simple solution to this, but I'm unfortunately just not quite familiar enough with the process to know where to start looking. Does anybody have any tips for me? Thanks!
