In the ticket files, set on the flags for the content you're using. If everything is flagged (usually by all FF values), then the emulator will try to load everything. If you're only using the first 2 or 3 slots, then you only need one FF, probably.

Look at the highlighted part. Those are probably the only bytes that need to be FF in the ticket. Try matching that and see if it works.

Hi Mr. Stacks
I think this answear is for me.
Please forgive my noobiness.And my bad english too.
By your explanation I think you want me to open my ticket file in hex editor and change some values, but I'm a disgrace with hex editors and such.
I'll try to fill you in what I know about slots that I used and my tickets in ticket folder.
In every official gen folder I have some DLC of mine from the time my Wii was alive(for example 735a4a45,735a4645, ect).
Let's count Official DLC out for now, 'cause it's not the problem.
Back to customs then.
The folders I'm using are 735a4745, 735a4845 and 735a4945. Inside of every folder I have a "content " folder and inside this I have used these slots:
00000001 Meta (merged songs in all of them with c3 con tools)
00000002 song
00000003''
00000004''
00000005''
00000006''
00000007''
00000008''
00000009''
0000000a''
0000000b''
0000000c''
0000000d''
0000000e''

 a title.tmd and another .app file (similar to 00000026.app from RB3 dlc packer).
These conclude the itens in my custom folders.
In my tickets folder I have the tickets 735a4745.tik, 735a4845.tik and 735a4945.tik.
When I open these tickets in Hex Editor they are very similar to the ticket from your image above.
They are very similar to 735a4645.tik too.
sorry for my noobiness but I just can't understand what I have to change in hex editor to make these customs work on newer emulator versions.
If you please want to see them I linked them below:

Please forgive me for the size of this text and thank you very much for your patience.

These tickets don't look legit. They're all named differently, but they all have sZAE inside of them. Newer versions are a bit stricter when it comes to those kinds of things. If you want to use just customs, sZAE is recommended, and that would be a ticket called 735a4145.tik. The flagged bits are fine, so it shouldn't be trying to read from many slots you may not have content in.

HI 
Based on what you told me, I think I can use just sZAE for customs.
If I put all my customs in the slots from 00000001 to 00000042 of the sZAE folder (735a4145) instead of using the other folders (735a4745, 735a4845.. etc,) from 00000001 to 0000000e they will work on newer versions?

Can I merge various songs in the same slot using sZAE folder the way it is told in tutorial?

Can I use my official dlc and customs at the same time if they are not from sZAE gen?
I'm a little slow, sorry

Thank you very much for your patience.

You can merge almost as many songs as you want into one slot. You should be able to use official DLC as well. Probably would be safer if it came from a real NAND in that case, just because everything is probably already configured correctly. You could merge in official DLC into sZAE as well, but it would be more work.

Yes. I have my nand dumped with my dlc. 
It will be safe to use sZAE first 42 slots for my customs instead of using 14 slots in folder 735a4745, 14 in 735a4845 and 14 in 735a4945.
This way I get rid of the looping problem showed on the video.

That's what I understand.
Will it work if I just edit the meta folder .app unpacking it with ShowMiiWads then changing the path and repacking again?
Thank you very much. I know I'm being an annoyance. but I'm grateful for your patience.

Try one thing first, then the other. First see if you can get customs working just off of sZAE/001 and 002. Then see if your official DLC works on its own. I wouldn't recommend trying to merge official DLC together. It's just not worth the effort.
