    Hi all,

    I'm playing The Last Story (amazing game! yes, I bought it :D ). I was looking for an infinite crafting item code. When I go to geckocodes.org, there isn't one for the NTSC version, but there is one for the PAL version.

    I'm curious, will the PAL code work on my NTSC rom? (I use roms even after I buy the game to prolong the life of my disc drive).

    Is there any way to modify the code to make it play nice with the NTSC rom?

    Could I run the code on a PAL rom and somehow import my NTSC save data??

    ... did I post this in the proper section of the forum??

    Ah, so many questions. I appreciate any answers!!

    PS - I am away from my Wii for a few hours or else I would just test this myself! :P

    I'm glad it works for you, but it will not be the case for every games!
    It's just luck ;)


    And for future references, don't use the word "rom" but "ISO".
    Image of a game cartridge = ROM (Read Only Memory)
    Image of a game Disc = ISO (International norm used for Disc based data. Even if there's no international normalization for a given format, it's still that acronym which is used for all disc image)
