    Are there any games that won't work on a USB Loader in vWii mode, and if so, why?

    I don't know.
    Try them for yourself.

    Brilliant advice. Very helpful.

    To my knowledge, TC, all games that work on a USB drive on a regular Wii will work in vWii.

    I've had trouble getting monster hunter tri to go past the title screen. Be nice if anyone knows how to make it work.

    I've had no problem with monster hunter tri on all the three usb loaders I've tried. As I recall, someone else had a problem, and their problem had to do with the language settings in their usb loader.

    Which usb loader are you using?

    Wiiware seems to be hit and miss for me but otherwise no problems so far.

    Monster hunter tri will work if you install another custom ios, I forgot which one though. It might be CIOS 225. As for any other games that don't work: the latest kirby, and games of the "collection" sense: House of the dead 2 & 3, Samurai Showdown Collection, Metal Slug, stuff like that. It'll be able to read a few of them, however you won't be able to play the entire collection. I.E.: Metal Slug 1 & 2 work, but Metal Slug 6 won't.

    I have actually done a lot or internet searching for this and a chart on a wiki page stating if it will work on vwii or not. It basically boils down to this.

    The games that dont work are as follows

    All the games that you dont physically own a retail box and game disc.

    Any idea if it was a cios made specifically for vwii, or the old wii ones? I need to be sure so I don't brick my vwii...again.

    I cant get Twilight Princess Running on vWii...all other games work but TP just gives me a black screen after trying to start it via CFG loader =/ (but it still works on my old Wii so its not caused by a bad dump)

    I didn't actually start a new game but I started up TP and got through the intro and everything with usb loader GX. Maybe it's something with cfg?

    Monster Hunter 3 is working here,
    same for Zelda: TP (had the original disk, and already had the savegame on my vWii)

    BUT,
    I have troubles with Metroid: Other M ....
    First ISO i downloaded crashed upon loading ... instead of tampering with settings i downloaded another ISO
    and now, it doesn't even show up on my USB-HD (Formatted WBFS) (Loader: USB Loader GX)

    Any1 else tried Metroid: Other M?
