    Suddenly some WiiWare games like Castlevania Rebirth don't work anymore. Some still work like LostWinds. I know they worked when I installed them a year or so ago. Could it have something to do with the 4.3 update. I updated a few weeks ago.

    EDIT: Just installed Sonic 4. It works from the internal Wii memory but not from SD. Any idea?

    How can I patch the SysMenu IOS?

    And how come some WiiWare games still work from SD?

    use modmii to download a patched IOS80 (for 4.3 System menu's) and install it using a wad manager

    or u can use an app like dop-mii or MMM to install a patched IOS80

    No, I definitly didn't pay for LostWinds. Strange, isn't it?

    maybe because you had a previous save file?

    I had previous save files for all the WiiWare games cause I tried them to see if they worked when I installed them. Will try xflak's suggestions later.

    EDIT: Installing a truchs enabled IOS80 with DOP-Mii solved the problem. Thanks for all your answers [​IMG]
