    Hi guys! So I finally have my Wii working and USB Loader GX is working fine. However, now I'm having trouble playing Super Smash Bros Brawl.​
    Essentially, the game's title screen is working, but when I click on Load Game or whatever it simply comes up with a load screen before sending me back to the main Wii menu.​
    The only other problem I could find like this is here:​
    But I have no idea how to use that program. My USB Loader GX is totally updated and I'm sure I've copied everything over onto the USB properly. All other games are working.​
    Has anybody had experience with this before?​

    Are all of your cIOS' up-to-date?
    Could you please provide me with a syscheck?
    Here's the link to syscheck: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/SysCheck
    Just be sure to unzip that file and add that into the "apps" folder.

    Thanks for your help!

    I just attempted to run SysCheck but it seems to be stopping halfway through. I read that you were meant to press the A button to get it to stop but mine just kind of gives up. Is this an indicator of a bad ios? If so, is there any way to see which one's failing?

    Anwyay, I did get some kind of a cvs file which I sent to you via PM. I hope you don't mind!

    I also tried playing Xenoblade Chronicles as well and that didn't work either. Could the problem have something to do with games that are going over the 4GB size limit? I've been splitting the games using Wii Backup Fusion which I assumed worked, but maybe there's an extra step I'm missing. My SSB file has been converted into one 4.5GB wbfs file and one 2.7GB wbf1 file - does that sound about right?

    Thanks again for all your help!

    Maybe your SD card if full on the drive? Make sure you have free space on it, sometimes I've had apps stall half way when trying to save covers and stuff because out of free space on SD...

    Sorry for the late reply, my Internet died on me for a while there! I have 4GB left on the card, I think that should be enough?

    Yes, that's a good amount of space for the SD card. The SSBB file is 8GB, though; you might want a larger SD card or just get a portable hard drive.

    Yeah, I'm actually playing all my games off a portable hard drive but I have USB Loader and everything on an SD card. I hope that's not the problem!

    Yes: games go on the hard drive and apps go on the SD card. :) No problem there. But can you get Smash Bros. running from your hard drive? You can split the file using Wii Backup Fusion and then install it on your drive. :)

    Yeah, that's what I've tried doing! The file's split properly but as soon as I open the game from USB Loader it just returns me to the home screen of the Wii. That's why we tried using SysCheck in the first place, haha.

    Is there an easy way to reinstall/update all the ios's? I'm not really sure which ones I have at the moment, but maybe if we just tried reinstalling all the newest versions we could get it working again?

    Thanks so much for your help, you're awesome! :)

    Yes, you can just redo the steps when you first installed them. They'd give you a message if they weren't up to date. You mentioned that when you split the file, they added up to 6 GB? It should be 8... well if it is six, then you're missing 2 gigabytes of data :O

    Hmm, good point! I just tried using Wii Backup Manager for Windows and it seemed to confirm that the wbfs files were "invalid". I'm trying to reload them but I can't use Wii Backup Manager to do it as the files are too big to carry across on the FAT drive...

    Ugh. This is so annoying! Do you have any recommendations for a good backup manager for Mac?

    Nope. There should be a version of this for the Mac, though... I think there's a version of Wii Backup Fusion for Mac. << This is not the same as Wii Backup Manager... so weird...

    Yeah, I've been using WBF up until now which I think may be what gave me the problem in the first place. Hmm. I might just try using a USB or something and seeing if I can get the files over to my Windows laptop that way. Thanks a heap for your help! I'll keep you updated!
