    on an EUR console?

    Note - NOT using rednand.

    So I downloaded and extracted the WUD with a legit tik. I install to USB. I change the region code to 4. Game boots and hangs. I thought it might be the language files so I copied all the USen files to EUen. No dice. So I copied them all to EUdu, EUfr, EUes, EUit too just in case. Still no dice.

    I need some new dice.

    With all the brains and hacking of games on here, can't work out why we are not able to get this game working off of sysnand USB properly.

    Anybody else got any smart ideas?

    Thanks.

    I couldn't figure out why, So I downloaded 1 & 2 with fake tickets separately & they work fine on redNAND.

    Iv had region free since it was released a few days ago, Havent tested this game since changing to region free though. I have 1 & 2 separately & Im happy.

    But like icw35 problem, Out of region games are still a problem, Even with region free (Not sure if he has it). Iv seen people on ISO site with the same problem, & Its some of the same out of region games that wouldn't work even in Loadiine unless you changed files/folder names from US to EU, But this trick doesnt seem to work with the Brazilian method (Going off icw35 tests here)

    Could you provide a more detailed explanation, please? I'm interested in having the NES Remix Pack instead of the two separate games, but I've never edited these files before.

    The eu language folders are empty on nes remix pack. Because of that the game will freeze on a eu wii u. The solution is to copy the language files from USen to EUes (for spain).
    After you copied the files you must also change file permission to 0x644 with w.chmod.

    Still doesn't work for me.

    I have copied the USen directory to EUen. I have then manually gone through every file and performed a w.chmod("path_to_file/filename", 0x644). The game still freezes.

    I've tried changing the region in meta.xml to 4. Still no joy.

    It's a UK console. Is there anything else I can try?

    Did you try region free the console? Not the title but whole console thing?

    You must have done something wrong. Worked for me.

    Copied all USen to EUen, chmod all files to 0x644. Changed region of XML to 4 and it works like a charm!

    If those are the steps to follow that's exactly what I have done.

    So you copied all files:

    ScreenMsg files:
    GameProgress.msbt
    GameSelect.msbt
    RecordRoll.msbt
    Stamp.msbt
    Title.msbt

    ScreenMsg/Common files:
    CommonSelectWindow.msbt
    Error.msbt

    StageDataMsg/Heritage1 files:
    1P_Remix1.msbt
    1p_Remix2.msbt
    1P_Remix3.msbt
    BallonFight.msbt
    CluCluLand.msbt
    DonkeyKong.msbt
    DonkeyKongJr.msbt
    ExciteBike.msbt
    Golf.msbt
    IceCrimber.msbt
    MarioBros.msbt
    PinBall.msbt
    SuperMarioBros1.msbt
    WreckingCrew.msbt
    Zelda.msbt

    tageDataMsg/Heritage2 files:
    1P_Remix1.msbt
    1p_Remix2.msbt
    1P_Remix3.msbt
    ChampionShip.msbt
    DactorMario.msbt
    IceHockey.msbt
    KidIcarus.msbt
    Kirby.msbt
    MarioOpenGold.msbt
    Metroid.msbt
    PunchOut.msbt
    SuperMarioBros3.msbt
    SuperMarioBrosLostLevel.msbt
    SuperMarioUSA.msbt
    WarioWoods.msbt
    Zelda2.msbt


    Then you chmod all of them (one by one) to 0x644. I assume you already updated the XML region to 4. Then you turn off your WiiU. Then you turn it back on and play like a trooper :)

    Yep that's exactly what I did. I did a w.cpdir on the USen folder to EUen. Then a w.chmod on each and every file to 0x644 - thank god it's a small game with only a few files!

    Had a little chuckle to myself at IceCrimber in the process.
