    Hey, I have a PAL Wii bought on release at 3.2E. I have a Wiikey with latest update, the official Homebrew Channel installed and wadmanager 1.0. I downloaded the update for the Wii shop channel which contained the update about Wiiware maybe a month ago. I have not sinced updated it. I got Lost Winds PAL to work on my wii perfectly as well as Pop PAL. However, Doctor Mario PAL and Final Fantasy PAL just return my Wii to the Wii System Menu - they do not reboot it. I have researched around and people are saying to try a different releases of the games and I have and they all just reboot my wii. Can anyone help me?

    Doesn't the homebrew channel use the twilight hack? And they are actual PAL releases so it's not compatibility issues. People have also been telling me that there is another update I need to download. But I'm already updated with the WiiWare update - is there another one I need to get? And How come some work and others do not?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    load the wad manager directly, not through the HB channel.

    I have the same problem here and I'm curious to update my Wii, because I afraid that Nintendo would do something to prevent me from installing wads.

    currently nintendo is not doing anything yet, so use the chance to get the currently most recent firmware.

    @ Jebula - let me know if it works. I can't update my Wii where I live so I'll have to go to a mates. And @ Arakon - you say load the wad manager directly? How do i do that? Through the twilight hack?

    Those games you can't played need the latest firmware IOS37.
    You should update your wii to the latest firmware to solve this problem.

    Isn't there something on that update that will affect my mod? Do i get it from just connecting to the internet or do i need a game?

    Thankyou [​IMG]

    I read somewhere that IOS37 screws up all the Homebrew stuff. Is that true?

    Lost winds won't work for me. I get an error at line #9 and it's -5xxx something. Maybe it's just Wiiware games...
