Last year I setup my wii u and was able to successfully load up and play wii games using USB loader GX and GameCube games using Nintendont. I revisited after not using for 8-10 months and I haven’t been able to load USB loader gx anymore, it just says loading for 20 seconds and then goes back to the wii menu. Nintendont works fine so I’m able to play GameCube but not wii.

I use external hard drive attached to the back two USB ports. Any idea what happened and how to fix?

Are the appropriate USBLoaderGX files on the apps folder? And are you using a wad channel to launch USBLoaderGX?

I use a wad channel but have also tried loading through home brew and get same result. I’m pretty sure I have the right files in the apps folder. See screenshot for the files.

Hello.:)



Try and delete the "GXGlobal.cfg" and restart the Loader please.

Good Luck.:)

Just tried and that didn’t change anything. Not sure if this is related but every time I boot up the system I get a message saying that I’ve connected a USB storage device that has not been setup up with the console etc. I always have to click cancel instead of format since would erase everything I think?

my external HDD is Formated as FAT32 and nothing has changed in my formatting or files on the SD or external HDD since it was working last year.

Thank you.:)

Everything is ok,your vWii Softmod is fine.
Do you maybe know,which USBLoader GX Version do you have/use actual ?

Maybe you can try and re-download/install a Build from @Cyan,
https://sourceforge.net/projects/usbloadergx/files/Releases/New revisions (3.0+)/

r1268 or r1271 is recommended.

r1272 is not "unproblematic" but you can also try it.

The "new official" Builds from @blackb0x are also recommended:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/usb-loader-gx.149922/page-1316#post-8856063


By the Way,do you boot the Loader fom the
Wii U Menu Screen (Forwarder) or from the Homebrew Channel from within the vWii please ?

Good Luck.:)

update: I tried using wiiflow and it also wasn't recognizing my USB. I found another post that said to change the loader's IOS in usb loader GX from IOS 249 to IOS 58 and now USB loader is recognizing my USB and i see all my games.

However, I am now having an issue booting the games. I just get a black screen everytime and then it goes back to my main menu after 5-10 seconds. In USB loader GX the loaders IOS is 58 and the games IOS is 249. Any ideas what could be preventing the games from loading now?

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
