    I bought myself an original USB Gecko cartridge a while back and have been experimenting with it. I can get it working with a game that is loaded from a disc via my Wii's DVD drive, but most of my games are on a USB hard drive. I currently use Configurable USB Loader to load my games from my USB hard drive.

    Is it possible to use the USB Gecko cartridge to hack a game that has been loaded from a USB hard drive? Or will it only work with games loaded via a disc?

    yes it's possible.
    I don't know Config Loader, but you should have a menu where you can select a hook type before launching the game.

    you need to enable :
    hook type, maybe "Debug" if you have that option.
    Some loaders also have the "debug pause" option, which force a pause at game launch, waiting for you to resume the game using a debugger (wiiRd or gecko dot net)

    Thanks Cyan.

    I've just had a look at the hook options that Configurable USB Loader offers and there are:

    • No Hooks
    • VBI
    • Wii Pad
    • GC Pad
    • GXDraw
    • GXFlush
    • OSSleepThread
    • AXNextFrame
    and that's it. Nothing remotely like "Debug". :(
