Aha... it seems game is searching for WII OS files, you have to dump them from your
own Wii in order to make this error is gone

I will try to get those, but where do i put them into the emulator in order to test??
Also i dont think the freeze error will be fixed with the OS files (in MGS Twin
Snakes you can bipass the dousens of errors and the game does not crash bit in here
the emulator crash)

Well, the best way to go would probably be to run ftpii on your wii and copy the
contents of /title/00000001/00000009 to /sys/wii/title/00000001/00000009
and see if that works. The only problem is that that won't work with a wii running
anything newer than version 3.3 (without Oct 23 update). Of course, you'll also have
to know how to connect to an ftp server and the local IP address of your wii (which
you can find out in the home menu of the hbc). Good luck. Get started with homebrew here:

Was just curious why so many developers state issues as "game issues" when apparently
its not. As stated its something not emulated yet on the emulator. When yall state
its game issues it seems the issues fall out the limelight. This is a error that has
been placed 5 months ago but because it is stated as a "game issue" its disapeared.

#7 Updated by GCNWIIUploader over 11 years ago

a game issue is the right categorization for this because the game is calling the
unemulated command

  • Status changed from New to Duplicate

This game uses IOCTL_ES_LAUNCH and will be fixed when the Wii Menu is fixed.
