hi guys, i just registered to this forums today but I've been browsing quite a number of threads which helped me softmod my Wii anyway, I've got a silly problem which is really irritating me. I've googled a lot but what I came to no conclusion, hence why I'm writing here maybe I get some professional help. to make things simpler enough, i've posted a video on youtube to demonstrate my problem. I'll be posting the video description here which describes my problem in detail for any convenience. Please spend 5mins of your life watching the video and help me! keep up the good work! Video description: My Wii display problem! My specs: Wii downgraded from v3.4E to v3.2E (all the backups of the games I tried are PAL) Homebrew Channel v1.0.3 cIOS36rev9 Wiigator's backup launcher v0.3 gamma with #002 fix 24K gold plated component cables @ 480p 60hz 32" LG LCD (model: 32LG3000) My problem is that a lot of Wii games (not all) are displaying this annoying black border all around. The size of this black border is not the same for the games. Also, WiiWare Sudoku Challenge displays a black border too!! Worst game to display black border is 'Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity', border dimensions 4.5cms all around. I tried the following but no success: - changing the TV and Wii settings when using the component cable - changing the TV and Wii settings when using the standard AV cable which comes with the console (this reduced the blackborder size by 50%) - hooking up my Wii using both cables with a Samsung 22" LCD - changing the cios version from cIOS38rev13b to cIOS36rev9 - changing the backup of the same game (i tried NTSC, PAL, NTSC converted to PAL, games with and without the update, scrubbed, 1:1 copies) - using the same version of backup launcher but downloaded the wad file from a different source - i tried different backup loaders (NeoGamma, Wii Backup Launcher) with different settings and now I dunno what to do anymore! Before soft modding my Wii, the only games I had were Wii Sports, Wii Play and Zelda. None of which displayed a black border. After soft modding, these 3 games didnt show black borders either. Here's the list of games which I tried and display a black border: Wii Games 1. Anubis 2 2. Broken sword shadow of the templars 3. Cocoto Kart Racer 4. Disney Sing it High school musical 3 5. Dora the explorer - saves the snow princess 6. EA Sports Active 7. Family Ski & Snowboard 8. Funfair Party 9. Harvest Moon: Magical Melody 10. Hasbro Family Game Night 11. Jelly Belly ballistic beans 12. Madworld 13. Marbles Balance Challange 14. Metal Slug Anthology 15. My Vet Practice 16. Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity 17. Rayman Raving Rabbits 2 18. Secret Files: Tunguska 19. The Dog Island 20. Worms a space oddity WiiWare 1. Sudoku Challenge I'm totally lost and it seems that it's just me with the problem.
