The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return is a compilation and re-release of The House of the Dead 2 and III.


Wii Remotes Disconnect When Launching Game

When loading/switching games, you may experience the Wii Remotes becoming unresponsive. You will need to re-connect using Alt+F5 (Wii Remote #1) and Alt+F6 (Wii Remote #2)

House of the Dead 2 Start

Since 2.0 at least only House of the Dead 3 works. House of the Dead 2 doesn't boot (black screen). It is possible to modify the disc image as a workaround. Use WiiScrubber to extract hotd2.dol from the Zexec folder in partition 1. Rename it to main.dol. In WiiScrubber, replace main.dol in the root of partition 1 with the renamed file.

Fixed by 4.0-1862.


This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
