    I'm using a Wiikey and recently got a back-up of this game, I'm playing on a PAL Wii. The game forced a firmware update, and the game played fine for an hour, however it gave me an error message and now refuses to load. My other back-up games work just fine (including a JAP copy of Brawl). Ocarina isn't working either, it gives me the same error message. GeckoOS also gives me a "this is not a valid wii operation" message


    I'd really appreciate some help here, thanks in advance

    You updated? wow, why would you update?

    Admittedly I know very little about chips, but I'd never update via official methods.
    Are you supposed to be able to update a chipped Wii without problems?

    What firmware are you on. I am on 4.0 and it is working perfectly.

    I'm currently running 3.4 E. The game will work for around ten minutes before going to the "disc could not be read" screen

    Yeh you should burn with a DVD-R at 3x to make sure you have no problems. [​IMG]

    Is the game an NTSC version? and you said you updated on a PAL Wii so would this not cause a brick.

    It's an NTSC version of the game, and my Wii is chipped and has no trouble playing both JAP and NTSC games, this is the only one muddling up

    So its ok to update with a disk from another region as long as you're chipped?

    Absolutely not, NEVER update your Wii using an out of region disc - that's just asking for a brick!

    BTW you should use BrickBlocker to remove any updates before playing out of region discs. (or just starfall/preloader to skip update checks - I do both just in case ;P)

    Yes, that's how I play it all the time. Just Brickblock, RegionFrii (To change the region) and play!

    Okay, I have a copy with brickblocker and regionfrii, if it asks me to update, should I start the update then unplug the Wii?

    I certainly hope you're joking. [​IMG]
