    What's your ISO's region? What loader are you using? What's the video mode set to in your loader?

    An English game doesn't necessarily mean NTSC. It could be PAL and using UK English. Are you 100% positive the ISO is NTSC? I ask because if you're forcing NTSC in your USB Loader and it's a PAL game, well that just doesn't add up. That might not be the issue, of course, but we need to start there.

    The easiest way for me(but probably not the best way for everyone) is to load the ISO up in a WBFS manager (the one you might use to add your ISOs to a USB drive) or open it up in Dolphin. You won't need to actually RUN the game in Dolphin, just get it to load up in the ISO list. With all that said, it's starting to sound like that might not even be the issue. If it's not - the last idea I have would be to make sure everything is all up to date (USB Loader, ISO, etc.)

    I'm gonna say no. Go ahead and download Dolphin just to view the game's properties (like I said before, you don't need to actually run the game, just view the info) and check it's region. The first step in troubleshooting is isolating the issue. Right now there are a lot of things that can be going wrong and we need to eliminate the obvious stuff first. Verify the region, make sure everything matches up, update your loader and game if needed, and if that doesn't work, head back here to see if anyone else has a suggestion. You got this. I believe in you.

    Just look at the ISO with a hex editor. The first 6 bytes of it are the game's title ID. If it's "GFEE01" then it is the NTSC-US Path of Radiance. If it's "GFEP01" it's PAL. Wii discs follow the same pattern but they start with an R.

    G = Console
    FE = Game ID
    E = Region
    01 = Publisher ID

    If it is a Gamecube disc then run it through the tool in my signature and make sure the disc image is valid. It might be a bad rip.

    If you mean "GFEE01" and not "GFFEE01" then you're on the right track. Do you use Nintendont (through USB Loader GX) or something else?

    Well from what I can tell, that particular game has had some frustrating issues with Dolphin, so maybe those problems are leaking into Nintendont / USB Loader GX. I'm out of ideas for now. Can anyone else lend a hand?

    I tried it the other day when I responded to this thread and it worked fine. Check the MD5 hash for it against redump.org. If it doesn't match you may have to rip the disc again.

    it only stoped working around like chapter 27 when ike was about to challenge the black knight and whats a md5 hash? I downloaded this Fire_Emblem_Path_of_Radiance_USA_DIRFIX_NGC-STINKYCUBE.rar file do you think that would help?

    An MD5 hash is a string of characters that is generated by running the ISO image through a hash calculator. There's a tool in my signature that can do it and automatically look it up in Redump.org's database. You just drop the disc image file onto the window.

    I don't know about downloaded copies but the DIRFIX makes it sound like it's probably been altered at least once. I ripped mine from my original disc and haven't noticed any problems with the game although I don't think I've gotten that far. It's been a long time since I played it.

    Whoops, sorry! I forgot to attach the release binaries. :D I updated it. You want "GCVerify1_1_1.zip".

    Maybe try using DIOS MIOS? All my GCN games work great through my SD Card using that, including Path of Radiance. Possibly it's the ISO itself that's the issue? I don't know anything about Nintendont.
