    I recently installed the latest version of CIOSX and then I installed DARKCORP.. but their list of supported games do not really cover the new ones :/ could someone tell me which games do not work with the latest version of DARKCORP?

    The list has not ben updated as of yet.

    But the only problematic ones are NSBMW and Ghostbusters. They are not incompatible per se, but you have to do something to make them work.

    1 - New Super Mario Bros. Wii:
    Fix A: You either need to apply a patch to the game's main.dol to kill the anti-piracy code

    or the much easier way:

    Fix B: add the "BCA" data to offset 0x100 in the ISO with BCAeditor. Backup your ISO, then load your ISO into BCAeditor, and copy everything shown in this image:
    Make sure the part selected is set to 01, then save your ISO.

    Then burn and enjoy!
    (note: since the game needs to be patched a legit NSMBW will not work properly with DARKCORP...)

    2 - Ghostbusters: The Videogame
    You need to perform the "eject trick":
    Eject Trick instructions pulled from DARKCORP README:
    So those games can be played, but you need to do those things to make them.

    Every other game so far appears to be compatible. [​IMG]

    Band Hero should be working fine AFAIK.

    I do not actually have the game to test though, but an IRL friend told me the PAL version works for them.
    Maybe I should visit them and see for myself whenever I have the time...

    Are you using the latest version of DARKCORP (the latest version is v1.1 ATM)?
    What version of Band Hero are you using (PAL/NTSC)?
    Is it a perfect 1:1 dump, or has it been scrubbed, or maybe a bad dump?
    Did you dump the game yourself, or did you get it by "some other way [​IMG]"?
    What region, language, and sysmenu is your Wii?
    Are you using Verbatim brand DVD-Rs?
    How old is your Wii and it's laser, and how long has it been playing burned games?

    All these things are contributing factors as to whether a game will work or not...
