Thanks I guess I should have just tried it instead of asking lol. I'll report back once I have a chance to test it out
So my console won't hangs on a black screen with or without the overclock on using the forwarder. I'll just have to boot this from the vWii side and use a classic controller then. No luck for me

i usethe original wiisxr fowarder and replaced with this dol and works just fine on my wiiu inject, not sure what fowarder you are using i use this
https://www.mediafire.com/file/9qjf0c7b9c4y6yi/wiisxr_vwii_overclock_and_gamepad.rar/file

you only need to do a trick to make this work in the apps/wiisxrx just rename the folder to apps/wiisxr since this fowarder boots this path sd:apps/wiisxr/boot.dol

keep the name of the folder on root the same as wiisxrx(the one that has isos bios and sutff) just change the name fo the folder in apps only.

My first testings...

Ape Escape (USA) now works and gets past the DUALSHOCK controller notice.
Looks like it can be played normally now.

Croc 2 (USA) now it boots and get past the FOX Interactive and Argonaut Games FMV logos (without removing them), but still the animated cutscenes doesn't play, and this still causes that when you start the game from the beginning with "New Game" the first cutscene gets glitchy making it impossible to get past it unless you save and start the game from a savefile on 0%. (see this post for more info).

Vib-Ribbon (Europe) now it works.
Original WiiSX-RX crashes on LOADING screen since no support for CDDA/Multi-track, but with your mod now it gets past the LOADING screen. I played the tutorial for a while and seems fine.
EDIT: Passed the tutorial (HOW TO PLAY section), but on main game there's an infinite (endless) loop of a straight line, instead of the levels (when using the PLAY WITH THE VIB-RIBBON DISC mode), which i'm not surprised because it won't play the music either.
I understand, CDDA support is still experimental and needs to be implemented more.

These three problematic games i've tested, but i will test more.

First , thanks to the efforts of the original authors of wiisxrx, wiisxr, wiisx, I can play PS games on Wii.
I have also invested a lot of time and energy in this project recently, and released the first version.

Please refer to the following address for details:
https://github.com/xjsxjs197/WiiSXRX_2022

## The following changes have been made to the code based on wiisxrx.

* Incorporating the CDROM and cdiso codes of pcsxrearmed, the compatibility of the system has been more improved.
Many games that could not be run or had problems before can be run.

* Combined the dfsound module of pcsxrearmed and used the SDL Library.
The sound quality of the system has been more improved.

* Modification of some dynamic compilation instructions, such as sllv, SRLV, srav, FF9 and biohazard3 can be run.
(Part of the division instruction uses a static compilation instruction)

* Support for multiple languages.
At first, I wanted to refer to snes9xgx and support TTF font library.
However, it encountered a memory leak problem, resulting in automatic exit.
So it can only be made into a specific font.
Font char information: first two byte: BigEndianUnicode char code, followed by a character picture in IA8 format with a size of 24 * 24.

* For some customed Chinese culture games, specific BIOS is automatically loaded.
For example: sd:\wiisxrx\isos\武藏传.ISO => sd:\wiisxrx\bios\武藏传.bin

* Other minor corrections, such as disc changing and automatic fixed of some games.

## Goals(Please help me, or let us work together.)

* Improve GTE code to provide 3D game speed.
Although I used paired single instruction, but the speed is basically not improved

* Use the display mode of GL to provide image quality and performance.
I don't know anything about OpenGL, and I don't know if I can use grrlib.

## Compilation information

* PPC29 + Libogc_1.8.16 + SDL
You can download everything here: https://wii.leseratte10.de/devkitPro/
The compiled SDL is here: https://github.com/xjsxjs197/WiiSXRX_2022/libSDL.a


## The following is the basic code information

![WiiSXRX logo](./logo.jpg)

Fork of WiiSXR (a port of PCSX-R), a PSX emulator for the Gamecube / Wii / Wii U.

The starting point for this code base will be Mystro256's WiiSXR, a continuation of
daxtsu's libwupc mod of wiisx, which is in turn based off of Matguitarist's "USB mod5".

* Please see the following link for details:
http://www.gc-forever.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2524

* WiiSX is GNU GPL and the source can be found here:
https://code.google.com/archive/p/pcsxgc/downloads

* WiiSXR is GNU GPL and the source can be found here:
https://github.com/Mystro256/wiisxr

* libwupc and libwiidrc are also GPL, which can be found here:
https://github.com/FIX94/libwupc
https://github.com/FIX94/libwiidrc
Wow!

Further testing has shown me where I went wrong. This version of WiiSXRX would yield the same crash when booted through vWii. I had to put ALL the files from the apps folder In there not just boot.dol it works great! Gf took over the TV which I also use as a computer monitor so I think if I replace all the files into the 2.5 folder it should boot with the forwarder I have as well. I will do try this when she's done with the tv

Second tests...

Road Rash 3D (USA) on WiiSX-RX 2.5 the game crashed on title screen but on this new mod build now it gets past the title screen and can be played.
Gex - Enter the Gecko (USA) on WiiSX-RX 2.5 the game got stuck in an infinite (endless) FMV loop and it won't respond to any command but on this new mod build now it gets past the FMV scenes with no issues and the game can be started and played.
CTR - Crash Team Racing (USA) on WiiSX-RX 2.5 the game crashed at Sony Computer Entertainment text but on this new mod build now it gets past it and boots to the title screen. Game can be started and played, on intro and during races it has some gfx issues such the racers most of the time cannot be displayed and only seeing the wheels and some objects and obstacles cannot be seen until you get near them, but hey, still better than the crash on old WiiSX-RX.
Nicktoons Racing (USA) on WiiSX-RX 2.5 the game crashed at license screen but on this new mod build now it gets past it and the game can be started and played fine.

I will announce more results of my testings.

Multitrack games would be great to play on wiisx, I want to play destruction derby, I will update it for test if I can play games I could not before, thanks
Destruction Derby still doesn't work sadly

@niuus however in his old posts he told that in his private repository code he fixed some code for support Destruction Derby.

But... for when?

Quoting myself to follow up, I got it booting now with the overclock and gamepad but just copying everything over at once. Running GTA 2 at almost 60 fps lmao
