Ok so i actually own this game. dumped it myself so i dont think it is a scrubbing or ISO releated.
However using configurable usb loader. Fat32 drive. and hermes v5 222/223 the game doesnt work correctly anymore.
like 2 weeks ago i did start using cheats on the game. after i found out that cheats corrupted my brawl save i created a backup copy of my save file before i used cheats.

so when i play the game with cheats enabled it appears fine. however when i enter a level the wiimote actually freezes. The game continues to work as if nothing happened but the wii locks out connection to to the wiimote and i have to turn off the wii and re sync them

so i do it again with the non cheated save file and when i enter the level same thing however Mario kept running forward.

the IOS is hermes 222 & 223 with 57 as base.

Check that you have fresh batteries in your wii remote. If you do, then backup your non-cheated save file and start a new one and see if you get the same error. If you don't, restore your save and see if it works (if not, just start a new game, Galaxy isn't too hard to beat again anyway). If it doesn't work on a fresh save file I don't know what your problem is, but you could switch over to Waninkoko's custom ios rev 17 and see if that works.

i had the same problem here too, but the only difference is that i don't use cheats.
but my super mario galaxy also freezes, the music keep playing and all, but the wiimote gets locked.
i'm not a dev, but i think it might some kind of issue from cfg usb loader and using hermes' cIOS with 57 as base. when i told about this problem at the loader official topic, oggzee asked me to test using uLoader. the results were different this time, and with uLoader i didn't freeze at all.
have you tried to use uLoader yet ?

No. Just use the network install of rev 17, have it set to use in you're loader preferences, and it should work. I'm on similar settings (Except for hermes ios) and I have no problems. I think it will fix you up and keep your save file intact. Here's a direct download link. Just run it through the Homebrew channel and you shouldn't have issues.

I had same issue long ago, must have been running rev 12 or 13 of 249 and playing from usb. .Mario would play fine but at random times would crash going into levels, dont think it was ever same place twice, ended up playing from disc and got all 121 stars without cheating (never used cheats ever on wii game) and without any lock ups.

    @Xzi Thanks for the feedback! I'm planing to make alot more music for each of the levels, so it don't get so repetitive! And working on some graphical upgrade ideas!

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".
