    Hello, this is my first guide, and I'm going to be teaching you how to change the region of a Wii game.
    What this basically does, is that if your Wii is for an example from USA, but you want to play a game with "PAL" region, you need to do this. (If you don't have Region-Free turned on)

    DISCLAIMER: For this guide I expect you have the game in .iso format, not .wbfs. Also some games might stop working, I got no explanation for that, I could only suggest that you had downloaded a bad torrent.

    Okay then, lets get going. So first off, grab these two files - "Wii ISO Renamer" & "RegionFrii". I have uploaded them here.

    Extract both files, and open up "Wii ISO Renamer". In the "Old GameID" the fourth letter can be P (PAL), E (NTSC-U), J (NTSC-J). In this guide, I'm gonna change it from PAL to NTSC-U (from P to E):

    Now click "Save ISO". Next open "RegionFrii" and select you .iso file. Change the "New Region" and click "Update ISO". When it asks you if you're sure, then click yes.

    Now you should be done :) Congratulations man, you've done it. Now just add it to your USB HDD Device, or burn it properly onto a disc and have fun playing.
