    Hey guys,​
    Problem A
    I'm not sure about you guys, but I seem to get a lot of random crashes on vWii. The only way to get out of this freeze/crash is to unplug the console =S.​
    Here are some of the areas the crashes happen:​
    -SaveGame Manager GX, after copying a few saves over randomly freezes the screen.​
    -WiiFlow freezes sometimes when loading from channel forwarder​
    -Freezes when starting up games sometimes from WiiFlow​
    Promblem B
    It seems when I load up games using WiiFlow manager sometimes, it turns the vWii into this winowed mode showing a thick black bezel around the game.​
    And the thickness seems to vary =S. What do you guys think is the issue? By the way when the black bezel appears, it even goes all the way to the actually Wii Menu!​
    Thoughts?​

    If you mean a very slight "gutter box" around the Wii stuff (as in, black bars on all four sides), I think that's normal. Mine does it too and I haven't hacked it yet.

    What resolution is your Wii U at? Mine shows the gutterboxes when it's in 1080p using HDMI, but if I set it to 480p widescreen over HDMI it looks normal. I'm guessing it has to do with overscan protection.

    Is there a way to disable overscan protection?

    It seems that WiiFlow runs with this gutterbox, but if I use Configurable USB loader, there's no more gutterbox hmmm.


    Any thoughts on the freezing issue?

    I have no idea, if anyone figures it out I'd like to know. But for me it's not a huge deal as the bars are pretty small.

    I haven't hacked my vWii yet so I have no idea, sorry.

    The power button on the Wii U actually doesn't work when you want it to be forced to turn off, but you can just pull the plug.
    Sometimes, homebrew applications freeze, you just have to pull the plug and try again.

    It's normale the gutterbox appears.
