    Hi all, having an issue with Xenoblade.

    Once I get to a certain cutscene in the game (I can provide the specific point if you'd like, just figured I wouldn't for spoiler sakes), the Wii freezes and I have to hard restart in order to get the Wii working again. The game DOES still get to the menu screen, and I can play perfectly find up to this point in the game.

    What I've done:
    Tried both Wiiflow and CFG.
    Tried loading the game with IOS 249, 222, 223, and 224.
    Googling
    Searching GBA-temp.
    Made sure that my hdd is formatted to FAT32 (it always has been)
    Made sure other games of mine work

    Anyone know what to do here?

    Try re-ripping it? Or maybe changing the video settings to the type of the region from whence it came? I dunno; Rydian would be able to help (or maybe JoostinOnline...)

    Edit: title.... says NTSC; probably don't need to mess with the PAL settings...
    One that reads Wii games without much difficulty, I'd imagine.

    Ok, so I missed a thread online. Changed to an NTSC partition, works now.

    The game hasn't frozen - it blasted you with so much boredom that your brain went through temporary comatose after which it began receiving stimuli selectively, blocking out the game as to give your body a chance to turn it off. :huh:

    Seriously though, if it freezes mid-game it's probably a bad dump. As for the partition, NTSC? Don't you mean NTFS? And I don't think that'd actually... help... meaning, NTFS has worse support than FAT32 does. Perhaps the game previously:
    1. Occupied a bad sector or a slow sector
    2. Was fragmented
    3. Didn't copy over properly the first time
    ...freezing the system in the process. Creating a new partition and copying over a clean dump would fix all those.

    Either way, glad that you had it resolved.
