    Heya,

    Seems like my parents are getting a Wii for Xmas so I was wondering what's the best modchip at the moment? Is it still the CycloWiz? I live in Belgium so it's a PAL Wii, with the chip I can play NTSC & NTSC-J games right? (just to make sure). And where is the best place to buy it for Europe? I bought my R4 from 01media but they're pretty expensive.

    Also, can you somehow play N64 games on the Wii? I'd like to play the original Paper Mario ^^


    Tia ^^

    EDIT: Whoops wrong board, please move it to Wii - Hacking.

    If your parents are getting a Wii right now for your Christmas you will have D2C.

    That means you have a choice between d2ckey, Argon and WiInfectus

    i say go for the Argon or the WiInfectus. The D2CKey requires you to solder 31 wires!

    Modchips make the Wii only partially regionfree. Not all games will work and many will have compatibility issues.
    For N64 games, there is a homebrew emulator that runs in gamecube mode, but it is far from perfect and it will only run a few games. But Paper Mario is available through Nintendo's Virtual Console store, you can buy it for 1000 WiiPoints

    I highly suggest you tell them to import an NTSC Wii, especially since Brawl's been delayed until summer in the PAL reigon. [​IMG] Also, unless you buy a used Wii you'll need a D2C chip.
