    Hey there everyone,

    It's my first post although I have been doing quite a bit of reading here over the last few months.

    I've pretty much achieved everything I've wanted to on my PAL Wii without needing to ask any silly questions, although I can't recount the exact steps- below is what I can remember!

    ---------------
    *rev1260 (that's the USB loader revision right?) IOS249 (rev65535) +AHB dx2 v10beta52 base 56
    (IOS 236 is installed obviously,
    when I check the IOS grid in dx2CIOS installer everything but 249 is listed as a STUB, I'm not sure if this is the best / correct setup?)

    *Everything boots through USB Loader GX, I have it installed with a channel forwarder, it autoboots on startup and titles "reset to" it.

    *Soft region change to NTSCU for 60hz in some games that refuse to force it (No system menu installed as I use the offline region changer and can't seem to get back to 4.3E if I install 4.1U system menu)

    *Emunand runs from SD path with my VC + Wiiware backups.
    (Backups for ZeldaMM, OgreB64, Smash64, Sonic4ep1, CastlevaniaRebirth run from local memory as they have issues on Emunand)


    *Wii + GCN backups run from USB path.

    *GCN backups are booted via Nintendon't v3.372
    (DIOSMIOS v2.11+ is present also, I'm not sure what the better option is but I've had no issues with Nintendon't thus far)
    ---------------

    The text in red are minor questions I have if anyone wants to address those.

    My real question however is this; On my configuration WiiWare titles will only display the system set aspect ratio and ignore the loader settings. I have tried several titles and configurations and nothing seems to work. Are WiiWare titles unsupported by some of the loader settings? Or is there a work around?

    Thank you in advance!

    Edit: No one :)?

    1. r1260 is, in fact, the latest version of USB Loader GX
    2. You should be fine with 249 but some games like CoD: Black Ops and games with USB peripherals require IOS57 instead of 56 so you might want to install d2x as 250[57] as well.
    3. It's fine to leave DM installed but Nintendont has much better compatibility and supports streaming audio games properly.
    4. I'm honestly not sure about the NAND titles and aspect ratio, but I don't think USB loaders patch those.
