    When I first opened this thread I was under the impression
    that games were working in color with a NTSC Wii and A/V
    cables, but running A/V cable through a DVD recorder that
    has been unlocked for all regions will allow "Some" wii games
    to play in color, but not all of them..

    as people replyed to the post I believe that it is not possible
    at all at this point to play a NTSC game in color directly through
    a NTSC Wii and A/V cables to a non HD TV.

    I am very sorry for not doing more research before I made this
    post..

    I also have a NTSC Wii using the standard AV cable. I tested Lego Batman (NTSC), but the game appeared in black and white and the screen kept scrolling making it unplayable for me. Did you do any extra patching? I also tested Star Wars: TFU. The game was playable, but was in black and white too.

    Do you have an HDTV? I have a regular Sony 32" CRT TV. I wonder why your Batman worked.

    The only thing I can think of is, that I am running the A/V cables
    through a DVD Recorder (Which is region Unlocked), and then
    outputing to TV (Which is an old Sanyo 32" TV, 7 or 8 years old and Non HD)
    using a SV cable

    not sure that is the solution since not all games run in color

    im trying some more to see if I can get them in color tonight.

    I have the PAL version of Boom Blox running on an NTSC Wii with AV cables and it's black and white. Will getting the NTSC version fix it the black and white? Will getting component cables fix the black and white too?

    I think the DVD recorder might be what's changing the signal to NTSC. I'll see if I can grab some equipment to try this.

    Boom Blox NTSC worked in full color with my NTSC WII and A/V

    Also just tested Wii Ski, and it works in color

    I wish there was a solution to this other then getting an HDTV with Component cables.

    thats interesting you guys got boom box to work.
    i got an ISO that was NTSC-U of it.

    and i tried it, and i got the invalid format screen on my TV (which usually means its PAL)

    then i tried a few things

    WiiFrii to NTSC - PAL

    Wii Free to PAL - NTSC

    and i get the same thing on all of them.

    but i DID plug the wii in with the Composite Cables (Yellow, Red, White) and i could actually see something, but it was in black and white and off center.
    it was clearly putting out a PAL signal. i m not sure what the problem was.

    Running through a DVD recorder that is region unlocked might have something to do
    with it, I dont know, but Boom Blox NTSC-U works in color on my WII.

    NTSC WII
    (A/V Red, White, Yellow)

    So it won't work with a NTSC Wii and the regular AV cable. You need something extra like your unlocked DVD recorder or the component cables. I hooked up my Wii to my computer using the composite cable, opened up VLC and changed the capture settings to a version of PAL and was able to view Star Wars TFU and Lego Batman in color, but the color was a bit off and the screen was a bit cropped.

    Games I have tried on my NTSC Wii with AV cables, burning at 2x with imgburn. Using Memorex DVD+R's All games NTSC but Deca Sprts I think.

    Super paper Mario- Black and white(Would work fine with component cables) plays fine tho, takes a while to load.

    Deca Sports- Black and white (Would work fine with component cables)) Plays fine tho, takes a while to lad.

    Mario Kart- Boots. Black and white [​IMG] lines jumping across the screen.

    Does anyone know how to fix the jumping lines that run across the screen? really bugs me make the game unplayable. Pleases help.
