    Would it be possible to fix these games with the method above then upload them somewhere?

    Anything is possible. But that would be distributing copyrighted media. Which I don't do.

    edit: Sorry i think i read your post wrong, did you get Call of duty 3 working using this.

    I tried the COD3 fix and it didn't work for me - I must be doing something wrong?

    I extract frontend.dol, rename it main.dol then right click on frontend.dol and replace it with main.dol - when done the file is still called frontend.dol and the game still freezes while loading the campaign..

    I thought perhaps I was supposed to replace main.dol with the one from the desktop... that didn't work, either... it lets you get as far as loading the campaign then freezes.

    Mortal Kombat works great, though!

    Very interesting find mr 'dude. Now, here is a question for you all, and maybe something to try as well. How about using this method with the patched jap version of Metroid Prime NPC. Dont have time to test this myself, as it is bedtime for me, but if anyone has some spare time, this would be awesome.

    Something tells me that when I buy my shiny new copy of the Metroid Prime Trilogy, its not going to play nice with USB Loader, and thats a shame too. I love USB loader because when I go somewhere with my Wii, I dont have to drag all my discs with me. Also, its nice to have access to my Wii library without having to get up and change discs all the time.

    Hopefully I wont have to drag a whole one disc around with me :}

    Are you not supposed to replace the main.dol in the iso?
    This reads as if your replacing the frontend.dol and not the main.dol?

    Yeah, I have my doubts that Call of Duty will work properly (it reloads the IOS in a really awkward place), but assuming this is a valid fix you should definitely be replacing the main.dol with one of the other .dol files.

    MK crashes after the various intro screens, as it reloads the IOS to bring up the main menu. This fix, from reading the method in the first post, basically makes the game skip right to the main menu .dol (mk7), by renaming it main. Presumably, then, the game just reloads the right IOS from the beginning and doesn't try to reload.

    I have SSX and Red Steel, and I'd be happy to test them whenever I get the chance (in the next day or two) if no one beats me to it. It seems like they'd have a better chance of working since if I remember right they reload the IOS really early on (before menus).

    If it does work it's a nice fix. Really simple once you see it, lol.

    I just tried this fix with Red Steel Pal and i get a black screen in latest Coverfloader Cios 36 Rev 10, i'll try some other loaders later but i don't think this fix works for it.
