    Hi,

    I have Red Steel 2 PAL and have it copied to my HDD, however, when I launch the game from USB loader GX the Wii resets to the title screen. I have a Softmodded 4.2E Wii with cIOS rev 17 (I think). Are there additional things I have to configure to get it running or am I doing something wrong?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    EDIT: Fixed it - used the alternate.dol method to first load the Wii motion plus video, then turned off alternate.dol and the game loaded perfectly.

    In fact, you just need to watch this video once in your life and it's ok ?

    Once in your Wii's life. At least if you do not reset it to a pre-motionplus state. I did it with Wii Sports Resort and did not have to do it for Red Steel 2.

    Hi guys,

    I am having the same problem.

    Is this motion plus video just on a game disk and if so, how do i go about viewing it, to solve the problem??

    Thanks,

    on USB Loader GX go to load settings for Red Steel 2 and go to the dol section and change it to the one on the ISO start your game you dont even have to watch the video just restart your USB Loader GX and change the dol back to default and youre good to go

    u sure u can exit the video without watching the whole thing? Did u return to the wii menu in the middle of the video? Or perform a hard reset?

    all i did was do the alt dol method as mentioned before then hit home on my wii remote and went to wii menu then clicked back into USB Loader GX but you dont have to waste time watching the vids as long as the screen shows the options for vids then you can exit and set back to default.

    Let me guess...you're from the USA, and you'll have an NTSC-Wii. But the game is the PAL-Version, right? I would then go with: Use the f*cking Search.







    Ok, because I'm nice (sometimes)....force to NTSC should do the trick. If it doesn't, get the Version for your Region.

    Wii sports resort only showed the options after you've watched them, so you wouldn't have to watch them again anyway.

    hi, I'm having some issues trying to do the whole "alternate .dol" thing in red steel 2: i open the settings on usb loader GX and go to alternate dol, the only three options I have are "Default", "Select DOL", "Load from USB/SD"...I tried Select DOL and the game does not load at all...it freezes on a black screen; I then tried Load from USB/SD and it just pops an error message if I try to play the game. What should I do? Thanx!

    1) delete GX from ur sd card
    2) replace it with Cfg Usb loader
    3) use cfg to select alt dol from disc
    4) watch crappy WM+ video
    5) reset wii
    6) turn off alt dol
    7) play game.

    if u watched the video in WSR you dont need to do any of this, just use cfg to play the game.

    GX must be having problems cos i keep seeing people sayin "Im using GX and i cant play XX game, ive tried all the settings",
    Most of the time i have played XX game on Cfg without changing any settings.
