Hello.:)

If I understand you correct,you want to START/INSTALL a WAD File directly from USBLoaderGX ?
I am sorry,but that is not possible on that way.:(

WAD Files should be installed on your Wii using an WAD Manager like WiiMod Lite or Multi Mod Manager.
I do not know a way to run it directly.:)

WAD Files can be for example cIOSes (custom IOS) or VC games /Virtual Console Games) or Channel Forwarders.

BEFORE you do such things,please assure yourself,you have PRIILOADER installed on your Wii.This is very highly recommended.
It is a little Brick protection and "LIFE" Saver for you and your Wii in Case something goes wrong on installing or you get an "corrupt" or bad WAD File.

Good Luck.

Thank you.:)

If you rip your original games with a loader on the Wii and transfer them to your drive/card directly then you shouldn't have any issues running them.
Take the time to do it properly, don't rush.

what format should the games be in (fat32 usb) I can t put wii iso s
Wii Backup Manager will convert them to the right format and put them in the right folder structure for USB loaders. You need to install d2x cIOS (v10 beta52, or v8 final, with base 56 in slot 249 and base 57 in slot 250) as USB loaders need it.
WAD files are mostly indie games and Virtual Console from the Wii Shop, but can also be used for homebrew and forwarders. Those have to be installed with a WAD manager.

Did you use the WiiBackupManager to get the Wii Games on your USB Device ?:unsure:
Working formats for Wii Games are ISO and WBFS.

Thank you.:)

The Answer Number #4 in your Thread here:

I think maybe that is the answer to your question.:)

Thank you.:)

Hello.:)

That s nice that you tell us your Wii "setup" now.
Maybe it is yet a little bit easier to help you.:)

USBLoaderGX has as Path for game usb1:\ and expects a Folder "wbfs" on it.
It does not matter if your USB Device is formatted FAT32 (recommended)/WBFS/NTFS.

In it there has to be a structure:

Game Name [ID] ----> like Deca Sports [RDXE18]


For converting/managing your Wi ISO´s and get the Games on your USB Device you can use:

Windows based PCs you can use the WiiBackupManager
MAC PCs you can use Witgui

And finally please check in USBLoaderGX of Gamecube and Wii Games visibility:

I see the game but when I play them thescreen goes black and returnes to hbl
is it because they are corrupted or because I have other files in wbfs in the wbfs folder (didn t bother trying with all of them)

Now we are at the inevitable point for the sysCheck please.:)
Can you please post it for us ?
It is necessary to see and check if your cIOSes are correct and installed.And to see if you have maybe other "troubles" with your softmodded Wii.
Do you know how to create a sysCheck ?

Thank you.:)
