    Update: no more tests needed, it seems clear now that it doesn't work

    This is SoftChip r95, and has a new feature included to fake the information which IOS is loaded. (Thanks to the Dolphin project!)

    What's to test:

    Test 1(002 error games):
    You need an unpatched version of the game(backup or retail disc). First test what happens if you load the game with Remove 002 Protection and Fake IOS Version disabled. Then test what happens if you enable Fake IOS Version, it should remove the 002 error. And if you have the retail disc, a modchip or cioscorp installed, test what happens if you select the IOS requested by the game as IOS to use in SoftChip and then load the game with both options disabled.

    Test2(IOS Version patching games):
    For the list, look at my sig, the Gamma+SoftChip compatiblity guide contains it. You can only test this if you have an unpatched disc of one of these games, don't have a modchip and don't have cioscorp installed. Or short, if you try to load one of these games with SoftChip or Gamma, it freezes or restarts. Test what happens with Fake IOS Version enabled. Don't have too much hope about this, i doubt it tricks the games to not reload the IOS they want, but i think it's worth a try.

    Test 2 results:
    Tests finished. With both options off and the correct IOS loaded, the 002 error does not appear. With the "Fake IOS Version" option on, the 002 error never appears whatever IOS is used.

    Test 2 results:
    Works:

    Doesn't work:
    Red Steel (Logo, then green screen, then reboot)
    SSX Blur (Handwrist, then reboot)
    Medal of Honor (Handwrist, then reboot)




    PS: Please post information from which everybody easiliy can see to which test it belongs to and what you tried, and what result you got in each try.

    12 hours later and not a single tester, that's a new GBAtemp record...

    If you want me to stop SoftChip development, you only have to tell me.

    Hey WiiPower , i think a lot are confused after the moving of topics around on the boards and they dont see some topics.

    I would test by my wii is chipped so it tends to be pointless a lot of the time, and i also think most are going for the USB loaders these days , though there is still a lot interested in this stuff.

    I'll take a look for you if you want though my wii is chipped as i said so im not sure if it would affect the outcome, but thanks for all your continued efforts - i for 1 still appreciate all the work you put in.

    Well...I take back what I said about SoftChip is dead [​IMG] ...if this works, this would be awesome, another step into perfect Loader(s). Looks like a great work [​IMG]!!! I can't test it, sorry, I have a Chip, so I guess it won't work...sadly...[​IMG]

    Thank you. The point most(all?) people here are GBAtemp don't see is: If one of the IOS Version patching games would work in a new SoftChip version without patching/cioscorp, it would have a high chance to work in the usb loaders without the need for a new cIOS.

    PS: With modchip you can test if the 002 error is fixed when using no patches(both options off) and the correct IOS is seleced.
    PPS: And with a modchip you could test the IOS Version patching games too by using IOS36 and deleting the IOS requested by the game, but i don't want anybody to test this, if noobs see it, they will start(again) to delete IOS

    Well, like you said to me, all things that will be developed for SoftChip/Gamma will work in USB-Loader, so I thought of that...But there's a point...the main people that have SoftModded their Wii are Noobs (not all..but more than advanced users, I think..) and these Noobs simply don't look in Threads like this...don't give your Hopes up...I'm shure this evening more people will see it [​IMG]. Well, I'll see also if I can find some free time this evening, and play a bit around...(lucky I have BootMii as Boot2 and a Backup of my NAND). But not now...I'm in School [​IMG].

    I haven't had access to my external hard drive all day and my only burns of games needing to be 249 patched have been 249 patched. I'll post my results tomorrow.

    Once again I will offer support, the pace of USB loader development is still beyond what I care for and my friends and I still use these for day to day stuff. I should be able to send word on a few things in the near future.

    The Results are in:

    Red Steel (Logo, then green screen, then reboot)
    SSX Blur (Handwrist, then reboot)
    Medal of Honor (Handwrist, then reboot)

    Wii, 3.2E, ModChip, IOS36, Requested IOS are all deleted, Test2

    Well, looks like it's (currently) not working...sad, looks like you put a lot of work in this... [​IMG]. Try to keep the good work up, don't give up [​IMG]! Now I'm restoring back, I think...man, that was a hard work [​IMG]...

    I think it was worth a try. To me writing 8 bytes into the memory and the 002 error is gone is a much more clean solution than before. BTW, SoftChip r96 runs Sam & Max now.

    The second results are in, this time for Error#002:

    Need for Speed Undercover
    Bleach VS Crusade


    Wii, 3.2E, ModChip, Requested IOS selected, both Options disabled (Test1)

    Great work, works without problems [​IMG]. Maybe you can also update the first post? Would be a good idea, I think [​IMG]...

    (P.s: Great if Sam&Max also works now, that's extremely good...only that IOS249, and we're at perfect state...)
