    Managed to do something idiotic, was wondering if anyone here had any experience with this or how I could rectify it.

    I was having trouble loading a lot of games, essentially was getting black screen, managed to only get Xenoblade Chronicles working.

    So I stupidly went into the load settings and changed it to IOS249 to IOS236 (having seen it in my HomeBrew menu), now USB Loader GX will not even load...it gets stuck at the "loading cIOS 236" part and then the message changes to "waiting for HD". The HD was working fine before, it's a Seagate 250GB HD and has no issues loading on PC etc.

    I've tried powering off, disconnecting, diff USB ports, endless googling and searched this forum too...no luck, I figure I need to change that setting back, does anyone know how I could achieve this or should I just be looking at starting afresh?

    Any advice or help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    p.s Sorry forgot to include the vital info, I'm using firmware 4.3E, USB loader 2.3 r1123 - please let me know if you need any other info, i will track it for you.

    Either delete the config file (GXGlobal.cfg), or edit it in a text editor and replace "ios=236" with "ios=249".
    The file should be located in sd:apps/usbloader_gx/
    if not, look in sd:/config/
    if you are using only USB, look on usb instead of SD.

    If you are using 1126, it's old (before 3.0).
    You need to update it manually if you want latest fixes and new features (Gamecube backup support, new design with "system menu" look, etc.).

    You can find the latest version in my signature (r1231).
    replace the boot.dol, and the meta.xml in sd:apps/usbloader_gx/ with the files found in the folder named "IOS249".

    Thank you so much! I figured that was the way to edit it however i was too scared to touch it and screw things up after :)

    For those who were wondering what I did.

    1. Put SD card into computer after turning off Wii
    2. My Computer -> SD CARD Drive
    3. Config Folder
    4. Opencart GXGlobal.Cfg in a text editor
    5. Edit cios = 236 to 249
    6. Save
    7. Exit
    8. Praise Cyan :)

    It's well deserved lol. I also used your Syscheck tutorial to install Syscheck.

    I've got another problem, not sure if I should make another thread about it, but I can't figure why certain games are just failing to load but other ones work fine (RE:Umbrella Chronicles, Xenoblade Chronicles.), the iso files don't seem to be corrupt and when i tried to convert them to .wbfs (using isotowbfs.com) they completely failed to show.

    No idea what i'm doing wrong here, i even tried to force NTSC mode to see if that was the issue. Tried googling but none of the solutions seem to quite relate to my problem.

    Any ideas/advice would be super appreciated. TIA!

    You are using a Base IOS 58 for your slot 249.

    You need a base 56
    and you need to update it too.

    Install d2x cIOS v8 (or v10)

    slot249: base 56
    slot250: base 57

    Done and dusted - Praise Cyan time is near, some of my games are missing, the ones that were already on the harddrive - however when i copied some new ones over they appeared in USB Loader GX fine.

    I can see the space is definitely gone on my HD inside USB Loader GX, however only 3 of the newly copied games show. I'm just trying to remove all the "missing" games from my hd and put them back on to see if that makes a difference.

    I saw another thread on the forum with this issue but it didn't seem like the same one (mines showing as NTFS partition in USB Loader if i'm looking at the right option lol under harddrive settings)

    I wonder if its the gameslist.txt getting corrupted somehow? I recall seeing such a suggestion on a forum post during my research, i was lead to believe this issue had already been resolved in an earlier version of USB Loader GX

    If the loader can't see some games, maybe they are not in the correct folder, or not named correctly.
    There's one not recognized by the loader. (Though, it's strange that you had them before the cIOS update...)

    Just to be sure:
    You can use Wii Backup Manager to rename the folders automatically to the correct naming convention (subfolder as "Title [GameID]")

    in the program settings > FAT32 NTFS Tab >
    - use subfolder
    - set to Title_[ID]
    - Auto-rename game on partition mount
    Then mount the partition and all folders will be renamed, games will be moved to subfolders.



    If it's not the folder layout, and it's the gameslist.txt like you said, you can try to delete it, it will be recreated. (I think it's named gamecache.bin, not gamelists.txt).
    You can also disable the game list caching in features menu.

    I'm pretty sure i'm using the right format, wbfs/Game Name [ABCE01]/ABCE01.wbs etc... - However just double checked it all with Wii Backup Manager to make sure and I definitely was, i also switched on Automatically update storage convention when drive is mounted.

    Also I couldn't even find a gameslist.txt/gamescache.bin on SD card.

    Still only 3 games appearing, the newest ones copied.

    Any further ideas? Want me to post another syscheck?

    I've also noticed its failing to pick up the harddrive until i switch USB slots. It works in the slot near the edge, the slot I was not previously using, the inner slot is not picking up at all...feels like its a caching issue or something but I got NFI how to clear that haha :{

    Whereas previously it had no issues seeing the games or picking up the harddrive - but of course it wouldn't be able to play the games then haha...FML

    the USB Port you should use IS the one near the edge.
    It worked on the other one because you didn't use the correct base for your IOS (base 58 works with both USB Port).

    Did you try to force a partition re-mount in the loader? (Settings > HDD Settings > Game/Install partition : Click on it to refresh the partition order.
    Did you try to reset the settings? (or delete GXGlobal.cfg)

    You said the game you re-added were displayed correctly.
    You now have two instance of the game on your HDD?

    where are installed the new one?
    It shouldn't be in the same folder, I guess it would have warn you if it detected the previous game already present.
    Maybe you have multiple partitions and it was not set to the correct one? (due to changing the connected port)

    if you used Port1, be sure to set Port to 0 now in the HDD settings menu.

    The games I re-added weren't displayed correctly, only entirely new games I had not played prior to doing those iOS/base changes to d2x v8.

    all in G:/wbfs/Game Title [GAMEID]/ - they are all in their seperate own folders, the only thing in G:/wbds/ is disc.info - thats it.

    I never did any partitions on this harddrive, it was completely a freshly formatted seagate 250GB HDD

    Checked the port and its port 0 also.

    Now to the good part :)

    I deleted GxGlobal.cfg - and voila all my games appeared when i loaded USB Loader GX again...however some games still don't work :( Getting a problem where it just goes back to HBC screen. I'm just checking through now, but i'm sure it will be the same ones that I tried prior to doing the changes earlier (iOS/Base d2x stuff)

    Ok, i removed the "spaces" in the name...*facepalm* and it worked - doesn't make any sense because my xenoblade chronicles worked fine with spaces.

    Spaces shouldn't be a problem.
    But game with the Write protection setting is a problem. be sure all your games aren't write protected in Windows.

    Even if this was the issue from the start, using base56 and updated cIOS will be better for compatibility (especially some features like IOS Reload block, multi dol games, Wiimote+ games)
