1  Help & Tutorials / Help / Gecko os suddenly stopped working, any ideas? *SOLVED on: April 30, 2013, 09:06:51 PM
Here's what happens
I load the homebrew channel with my SD card plugged in, then the Gecko button pops up, I choose load, and then my wii bricks with a black screen.

Ive already started searching for answers but havent found any.

It baffles me bc I havent updated my wii, I havent messed around with the apps or codes on my sd card, it just stopped working!

I backed up my sd card and then took a second one, filled it up, but removed all of my fighter textures, then I tried loading gecko and it still froze. Then I tried deleting all of my pf files to see if they could be the source of the problem. However, my wii still bricks when i load the card.

I dont understand why this worked yesterday, and no longer works today, despite having changed nothing. Im really frustrated because I worked really hard modding my game.

If anyone has some helpful advice I would be very grateful.

I got it working

For future reference to anyone who has the same problem, the solution was backing up the save files on my SD card, then i deleted everything, reformatted the sd card, redownloaded Gecko OS, and added all the other files that had been backed up. After having done all this, the Gecko OS stopped freezing.

What didnt work:

Removing my USB
removing my gamecube controller
Removing the sensor bar

Removing my pf files
Copying and pasting all files onto a blank sd card

2  Help & Tutorials / Help / Could someone teach me a little about what common5 and common3 are? on: April 23, 2013, 12:16:15 PM
Or is there a guide that might explain a bit more?

I notice whenever I download a PSA of a character (Like sephiroth for marth) it comes with a common 3 file.
Ive already tried using one before alongside the common5 and it caused the game to freeze.

Do I remove common5 and replace it?
Will this cause other problems for me in the game?

Thanks for any advice guys!

Thanks for the info. I'm sure I'll learn more about the difference between a pcs and pac soon enough.

Do i treat the file the same way I would  pcs file? Or do pacs go in under a different folder/name?

HI, im still really new to this.

When I download some character textures, I notice they come with two files. One of them is a .pac file, and I have no Idea what Im supposed to be doing with it. Advice?

I still havent found a way to edit my common5 file without making my game freeze.

What exactly are you changing?
I used instructions left in a download to change a stage name, icon, and a third image. Then I added the pac file to my sd card. I am using Gecko

UPDATE: Game still freezing after I reset my RSBE01.gct file with the default one. I will look into the pac file and its placement to see if I did it correctly. I am told to place it in private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/menu2.

I should mention that I just tried removing _en from all the BRES (idk if my terminology is right) files in when you first open common5. I read to do that on another site.

After resetting the common5 file and putting the selmap.pac into pf/stage/melee, the download FINALLY works...but It still shows final destination in the menu, and Im very frustrated to not understand how common5 works without freezing my game. Would love to have some advice.

Im also curious about how to add PSA and new models, but Im trying to take this a baby step at a time. The furthest ive gone is successfully adding new textures to characters in my roster.
