    I installed homebrew and such onto my old wii a long time ago and I got Super Smash Brothers Brawl from my cousin but since my wii is so old and Brawl is dual layered I can't play it off the disk so after many years of trying to figure it out and mainly keeping my wii stuffed in the back of the closet I finally figured out how to use a USB Loader, however I was also wanting to play Brawl on my wii because of the hacks people make for it and possibly try to make some myself so basically...

    Is it possible to use Riivolution on a game loaded by USB Loader GX?

    I dont think you can use riivolution with any usb loader but you can use this to make your own brawl hack iso/wbfs files.

    Ah alright, thanks. that'll probably be the best thing, although it's probably time consuming as well.

    I could use probably use dolphin to test mods so I don't have to wait an hour every time I place brawl onto my USB storage.

    You know you don't need to build isos with brawl right? You can use PhantomWings file loader code thingy if you have a large enough sd card.

    I'm not sure if the Dynamic SD Loader code works with USB Loader GX but of course I could simply be messing something up. but from what I know I have everything set up properly.

    It works fine, all you need is an ocarina cheat file.

    Then I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I changed textures on lucario, and placed the file on
    SD:\private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\fighter\lucario\FitLucario00.pac

    created a custom txt file placed it on
    SD:\txtcodes\RSBE01.txt

    opened USB Loader GX. enabled ocarina by going to
    Global Settings(Gears Icon)->Loader Settings->Ocarina ON

    I then go to the brawl back up and go to
    Settings->Ocarina->File Patch Code v3.5.1

    I'm about to try going to
    Settings->Game Load->Ocarina ON

    ....and that still didn't load the custom texture.

    Did you actually create the cheat file? the one that says rsbe01.gct?

    And if it still doesn't work, just copy and paste this into rsbe01.txt and try it out: http://pastebin.com/3EcVu4u9

    from the looks of things that only builds ISOs for specific mods. I want a way to use mods that I create.

    Yes I'm sorry for not specifying but I have been using the "create" button whenever I enable the code. I'll try that pastebin file though.

    I've tried it but now the code itself isn't showing up. is it supposed to have asterisks?

    Yes, that's how the cheat text file is formatted. idk why, it just does that.

    There's a premade gct here http://brawlhacks.wikia.com/wiki/File_Patch_Code

    And If you want to try a very well made brawl mod I recommend Project M. (Download "hackless", don't worry it will still work, "hacked" requires a real disk)

    I got a txt file from geckocodes.org (for comparison) and they don't have asterisks either and the link on that web page leads to a removed file.

    Man, you've gotta be kidding me...

    The only gct file I have is for Project M, so I can't help you there.

    Do you know if scrubbing or trimming a Wii ISO could make it where codes don't work? I thought I found the problem, I didn't change the right file. I was supposed to edit the PCS file as well but even though I did that it hasn't worked, maybe it just doesn't work with USB Loader GX.

    What I actually needed for doing that was Wii Scrubber, I didn't realize it could inject files into the ISO as well.

    Engine room, learning
    try to edit your posts instead of triple posting, thanks.

    As for USBLoaderGX, it can't load from SD in real time. you need to patch your ISO.
    I think only riivolution has the real-time file replacement feature.
