== Troubleshooting ==
If your Wii freezes while trying to use Bannerbomb, follow these diagnostics:
* Repeat the procedure with the same version once or twice. It can be fickle.
* Make sure you're not trying to use the SD Menu on System Menu 4.0 (the little blue SD card button in the lower left).
* Check that you pressed the Channels button in Data Management.
* Make sure that Bannerbomb is the only channel on the SD card.
* Try a different version of Bannerbomb. Most people should be able to use aad1fthe recommended version of BannerBomb given, but some might need another version.
* Eject the SD card, go into the channels menu, then on SD where it says no SD card is inserted, then insert the card (works for Toshiba 256MB cards and Menu 4.0E at least)
== Bugs ==
*If it gives you the dialog but freezes instead of loading the elf/dol, email Comex ( comexk @ gmail dot com ). Tell him where it froze and whether or not the slot light is on. You might also try removing the disc.*If you press "no" when it asks you whether you want to load a elf/dol then it might freeze.*It is possible to press the back button "under" the dialog. Make sure you don't do that.
== Changelog ==
* Fixed compatibility with [[System Menu 4.2]].
'''v104 - v108'''
