    I'm just curious about the latter and want to play Dr. Mario/Yoshi's Cookie/Panel De Pon.

    Define Multi-Region if hacked. Does that mean I have to get some certain app on the Homebrew channel? Or do I go to that menu when you softmod it?

    Homebrew channel, Priiloader, all need to be installed to bypass the lock.

    I challenge that, priiloader don't NEED to be installed to play out of region GC games, although it is a good idea to have priiloader installed for other purposes.

    I thought that a cMIOS is all that's needed to handle multi region GameCube games.

    Well since I can do that, which games (Wii, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, GameCube) do you recommend to be imported to Europe? So far I'd like
    -Nintendo Puzzle Collection
    -Kirby Dream Collection (if they don't release it here)

    I installed A cMIOS through a certain IOS (236) but not through the method that doesn't use an IOS. In the reset menu (PriiLoader) I've chosen I think all the Region Free options. Is that enough?

    You don't even need priiloader or a cmios, just run GCBooter from HBC to start whatever game is in the drive.

    Well Nintendo Puzzle Collection has that familiar text issue in Yoshi's Cookie unless run under actual Japanese mode.

    I'm not sure off-hand the easy way to fix that on Wii. (American Gamecubes could have a JP BIOS switch installed)
