    I have a Bomberman Blast Region Free wad and Final Fantasy MLAAK usa wad, and installed them on my ntsc wii. every time i load bomberman, there is a black screen and nothing happens. when final fantasy loads, it just return to the main menu. All other wads are working before and after i installed these games. i've had this problem for over a month now. if anyone else has had this problem, please help me!!!

    also, i would like to know if it is safe to update my wii from 3.2U to 3.3U. i have a modded ntsc wii with d2pro9, and i am not sure if it will mess up the wii in any way. i have a suspicion it may have problems because whenever i put on wiiconnect24 and leave a game inside the wii, it says the game disc could not be read. i found a way to fix this by inserting and ejecting different game discs about 20 times, but it gets really annoying. any help would be appreciated.

    Never mind. After hours of research I have got it to work. For others who have this problem in the future, just follow these steps:

    This will stop the resetting back to the Main System Menu when launching WiiWare.

    For NTSC-North America users, on step 3 and step 4:

    3. When asked to patch the .dol file, press 0. After it finishes, press any key.

    Press 1 instead.

    4. For the next option (Video Mode Changer), press A then enter. If converting to PAL, choose option 1, if not, choose 2, then press enter. Press any key to continue.

    Press 2 as you want it to stay NTSC.

    For the most part everything else can be followed word for word.

    Hello I'm the person who cracked Angel Solitaire and Oekaki Logic. I decided to try and crack these myself by reading this topic (specifically posts #113 and #116), but it seems the directions were a bit scrambled. After playing around with various settings on wwpacker and GenericWiiPatcher, I finally figured out how to properly patch these Wiiware games to work correctly with no problems. Now I'm going to tell you all how I did it as clearly as I can (note: I'm going to be explaining the way to do it with a JP wad, but it should work for other regions by making adjustments as needed ).

    Tools needed:

    google these

    wwpacker 1.6
    common-key.bin
    Generic Wii Patcher
    WiiWare wad you want to patch (for this example a Japanese one)

    Before you begin:
    -Unzip wwpacker to C:\ or whatever letter your root hard drive is (to reduce the possibility of errors)
    -Place common-key.bin in the wwpacker folder
    -Unzip GenericWiiPatcher and paste a copy to the wwpacker folder
    -Place an unzipped copy of your wad into the wwpacker folder

    How to crack:
    1. Drag the wad to the file named _wwunpacker.bat. When the program is finished, press any key to close the window.
    2. Drag the whole folder the program produced to the file named _wwpacker-IOS35-Plus.bat.
    3. When asked to patch the .dol file, press 0. After it finishes, press any key.
    4. For the next option (Video Mode Changer), press A then enter. If converting to PAL, choose option 1, if not, choose 2, then press enter. Press any key to continue.
    5. Now it should have the option to patch the .dol file with Generic Wii Patcher. Leaving the DOS window open, go to your wwpacker folder and open GenericWiiPatcher.exe.
    *5a. Under GWP, press open and go to your wwpacker folder. The folder of the unpacked wad should be the only one to select if you didn't unpack any other wads there. Open it, select the .dol file, and press open.
    *5b. The only options you need to use with this are the Error001-Fix and the Country Strings. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE!
    *5c. Under Error001-Fix, press Search, then Press Remove 001. Under Country Strings, select the country of your choice, then press Patch Strings. Press Save. Close Generic Wii Patcher.
    6. Press the DOS window so it has the focus again. Press any key to repack the wad. Press any key again to close the window.
    7. Rename your new wad whatever you want, use Wad Installer/Manager to install on your Wii, and enjoy your new game

    Note that this is explaining how to crack a Japanese game. You will have to use a different setting for step 3 if you're using a game from another region. It should all work the same.

    This works great.
