    I had posted this in the original thread, but I think it just got lost in the mix.

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one that has run into this yet or not, but I've been playing around with nIxx's loader, which works great, unless I hit the power button on my Wiimote. I get a code dump if I do that. Anybody else have the same issue with it?

    Thanks,

    CJ

    As far as I know that issue is in all USB Loader versions.
    Maybe waninkoko can fix this when he also fixes the issuw with patched to IOS249 isos [​IMG]

    Ah, ok. Thanks Shizzza. I didn't remember reading anything about it, and just happened to hit the button the other night. Usually I don't hit the power button from in there anyway, but thought I should bring it up in case nobody has run into it yet.

    this is a common bug with libogc programs, not related to IOS at all

    you cannot call the SYS_ResetSystem function directly in the PowerButton callback
    you need to set a flag as TRUE and, in your main loop, periodically check for this flag to be set and only then call SYS_ResetSystem(SYS_POWEROFF, 0, 0);

    I hope that's clear enough, I can quickly fix the code if you point me where it is

    Eh? odd, it works fine for me.

    Yep, literally double checked it a second ago. powerbutton on remote turns off the system, no code dump.

    Maybe you can have a look in my source.

    You can play iso patched to ios249 from hdd ?
    What version of the loader are you using ?
    Which game did you try ? Mortal Kombat?

    i honestly cannot remember where i got my dol file from (i made it into a channel), but its called-

    USBLoader_1.1s.dol

    I'll try to find the page i got it from.

    I can host it if you like.

    anyway, I don't have any ios249 patched games on mt PC at the moment,

    at least i don't think i do.

    I do have mortal Komat Armageddon, but after the screen where it shows you all the control schemes you can use, it just gets stuck at a black screen. I c an still power down using the remote just fine there too, as well as before loading the game (while still at the loader)

    That's something I am working on too.

    I looked up the wiibrew forum yesterday and got some idea. I will try to work on it today. If Jacobeian could work on that, that would be great!

    Oh, wait, I was talking about powering down with the remote (Main topic of this topic), not playing patched games, lol.

    sorry for the misunderstanding.

    should be fine

    PS:
    what is absurd is that sys.c is basically a rewrite of libogc SYS function, I don't really understand why it doesn't use them directly since the code is linked with libogc
    seems pretty pointless to me but I guesss that's waninkoko's way of codin [​IMG] g

    I have compiled it but I am at work. Could not test on it until I am back. Hopefully someone could test on these changes.
