    Did you try with the official USBLoader GX (with the latest Nintendont build of course) ?
    if it's not working, then you can report this bug here.

    I will try myself with the tabmod.

    Yeah, this is the case! The r1268 (I did test the tabmod AND the official) can't make the CC Rumble feature works, even if turned ON on the USBLoaderGX menu.

    I didn't see any reports before, so I don't know if this happened to anyone or if this is only happening with me.

    Thanks again!

    Just to be clear it's not the actual Classic Controller that rumbles, it's the Wii remote the controller is connected to that should rumble.

    RodrigoHC13 said it's working if launched directly from Nintendont...so I think he already knows this ;)

    EDIT :

    @RodrigoHC13 I found the problem. Try the fixed build in attachment.
    I was able to have rumble (tried in Metroid Prime) directly from USBLoader GX.

    @Cyan @GreyWolf when the new parameter for Rumble CC was added in rev1265, the NIN_CFG_VERSION was not updated, so USBLoader GX is passing parameters from version 7 of Nintendont's config.
    https://sourceforge.net/p/usbloadergx/code/1265/tree//trunk/source/GameCube/NIN_Config.h#l83

    Line 23 :
    Code:
    #define NIN_CFG_VERSION                0x00000007
    should be :
    Code:
    #define NIN_CFG_VERSION                0x00000008
    https://github.com/FIX94/Nintendont...05331f1d45a1b0b/common/include/CommonConfig.h

    cheers.

    Great job, @Badablek !!! The WiiMote CC Rumble is now working!

    Tested with vWii, USBLoaderGX tabmod r1268 (second version), Nintendont v 5.481 (tried with NFS Hot Pursuit 2).

    Thank you so much!!

    I'm having an issue when Wii games are saving to or reading from the emu-nand. It's sometimes very slooow, like about 20-30 seconds. The Wii DVD light flashes during this time, so I'm assuming it's writing or reading from the emu-nand.
    Is this delay normal? Or is my emu-nand corrupt or something?
    I'm using version 1268

    Thank-you,
    Mike F.

    It's just slow, especially when it's creating the save data in the first place. After that it's not too bad usually. d2x needs some kind of caching but there may not be enough free memory to do that.

    Thank you very much Cyan!

    Which is the exact link we need to refer to get this new version?
    Is it still considered 3.0 r1268 version?
    Do we need to reinstall de vWii and the Wii U forwarder?

    Thanks in advance,

    Best regards

    I would love any help. I have been tinkering with this Wii myself since I got it new. Once the kids grew out of it, I was able to add more then SNES emulator. I think I have made plenty errors, and it seems that installing the update from the Goldeneye disc may have removed some features. I decided to spend a few dollars and get an larger external flash usb drive and SD Card.....SO I had to tinker.


    I have modded this at various times over the years, and have all the old items I used on backup, but cant tell you what any of this means any more....I might as well have had someone else mod it, because I don't have a clue anymore. here is a copy of my syscheck:

    Any suggestions on where to go next?
    USBLoader GX said something about needing IOS 222, 245, 250 when booting & reloding cios 58

    Is there somewhere I can read about what an IOS is and understand what I did/am doing better? I have no troubles in the past modifying and understanding an Xbox. The stuff with the Wii never took in my brain

    Ok, I ran D2x cIOS installer and managed to install the necessary things to get me working again. I can't see where Nintendont is working, but I never had much luck with it. I only have one title on my flash drive, it doesn't seem to want to integrated into UsbLoader GX. NOTHING at all I loaded via hdd or sd card is showing up in Wii-flow.

    My next question because I like to tear things down and build them again.....Is there any way to reset the wii back to factory defaults without any mods? I almost want to do this again from start to finish in one setting, versus in parts over a 3 year server.

    replace your slot249 from r53 to r52, with the same base (56) and same version (65535)
    don't use r53, even if you followed a guide which told you to do so. keeping r53 will create hardware and software compatibility issues.


    I didn't do anything. All the work is done by Badablek.
    if you want the "tab mod" version of 1268 then ... well, look on first post for "tab mod" ?

    There's nothing to change expect the dol on your SD. no need to reinstall the forwarder.
    it's a modified version of the latest official release. it's not official, and I didn't make it.

    if you want the latest "official", then it's 1268.
    if you want a non official modified version of the latest official, with added tabs to switch faster between Wii/GC/emuNAND, then use the tabmod version linked in the first post of this thread. the GUI is different, some themes will not work.
    if you want a non official modified version of an old official, with added pluggin support, then use the "plugin mod" version linked in the first post of this thread. but it's based on an older version of the loader, not on 1268. So you'll miss recently added fixes/features.


    Don't reset anything.
    it's possible to do everything in one go, but don't go back, you don't need it. just overwrite what you have.

    And what you have is completely fine, you don't have any problematic or conflicting setup.


    The recommended hacking step are :
    1. install HBC using one of available exploits (game disc, letter bomb, or browser). If your console accept it, install bootmii as Boot2. In all cases install bootMii as IOS.
    2. install cIOS d2x base56 and 57, r52 (NOT r53)
    ..... Done ! that's all.

    4. extra steps : install priiloader, set wanted sysmenu hacks.
    5. extra steps : install USBLoaderGX forwarder channel, set this channel in the loader's settings>"return to" option. It will return to the loader when you exit a wii game, and will prevent nintendont from freezing on black screen when exiting a gamecube game.

    6. recent homebrew won't use IOS236 anymore, but it's fine to keep it if you want to launch old homebrew.

    so, your setup is good. Don't redo it when all is already fine to keep. You'll end up with exactly the same setup. it's more dangerous to delete and restore the console to virgin state than keeping/overwriting current setup.

    I don't know what the purpose is, but I have been fiddling with this off and on for the last 5 years. There are hundreds of tutorials out there referencing just as many versions of softwares. I do think I finally got the lastest USBloader because it has the GC options in the menu.

    Is there a reccommended nintendont version?
    Is there a good tutorial that outlines using one USB Flash for both Wii & gamecube titles?

    I have a few versions, including the nintendont master zip. I started on this over a year ago to backup failing GC games. Disc rot is pretty bad. I downloaded everything to my pc, and got sidetracked. I look forward to cleaning out the backup files because I got duplicates and versions like crazy.

    This has me thinking about getting a slim PC I have running just as an emulation related interface. I got files of files everywhere. SD card reader built in etc. Sounds like something I could really use.

    Thank you Cyan, you are wonderful :D

    One lasts questions:

    1.The second "non official modified version", with added pluggin support, what is it for?
    2.I have this following version, within the 3 you mentioned which is it?
    Meta.xml:
    <name> USB Loader GX</name>
    <coder>USB Loader GX Team</coder>
    <version>3.0 r1262</version>
    <release_date>20161019124305</release_date>

    3.Do these urguments under the meta.xml file do something? when the forwarder launching or the direct launching from Homebrew one?
    <arguments>
    <arg>--ios=58</arg>
    <arg>--usbport=0</arg>
    <arg>--mountusb=1</arg>
    </arguments>


    PS: you made my life better :)

    Thanks a lot

    The smallest windows pc with an accessible SD card reader, a few USB ports & a standard HDD would be all that is necessary. I am pondering buying a laptop because of a broken screen now.

    That will be the best, only if it is enough powerful to run CEMU effortlessly :)

    What on earth is CEMU needed for with USB Loader GX? If you want to play Wii U games a used console is MUCH cheaper than a PC that might be able to run the games on an emulator.
