    By REGION I meant the first LANG option in GeckoOS, but I can not seem to edit the post title...

    With my PAL Wii, I can either set FORCE NTSC to yes OR set the console LANG to JAP in GeckoOS in order to boot some JAP games
    My question is if theres any difference between these options?

    What I noticed is that by setting FORCE NTSC to boot some JAP games, if I press HOME, I can still see an English menu
    while changing the LANG to JAP, the menu is in Japanese
    This is nothing important, but still this is the most obvious difference between those two booting options that I can tell

    So, other than the above, anything else? Side effects etc.?
    Will there be a case that if a JAP game has multi-languages in it, by using FORCE NTSC to boot, I will be playing in English? And by changing the LANG to JAP, I will be playing in Japanese?

    By the way, does GeckoOS automatically skip game disc updates?
    If it does, why do people use Starfall instead?

    Thanks for answering my noob questions

    gecko os does not set region by hand (user) it sets language....
    yes it skips game disc updates...
    people use starfall because it's a permanent patch....

    changing language only controls the wiis system menu language...

    Yes my bad, I meant the first LANG option there in GeckoOS

    So the case I mention will not happen you mean?

    And so starfall is useful for skipping game disc updates for the disc channel as well

    Also I see your other post about Tatsunoko VS Capcom not running in your Wii
    It actually runs, the Japanese text you last saw was saying there is no this game save in your Wii
    and since you had your GC controller plugged in, the control moves to your GC pad, not your Wiimote anymore
    you just need to press the big green A button on your GC pad to confirm with that text message then the game continues to ask if you want to make a save file
    (man I actually deleted my save in order to test this for you, haha)

    Just dont blame the GC pad because I like GC forever

    people have told me this but i just have issues w/ gamecube shit plugged into my wii when the game starts... pressing a don't do nothing....
    If the game does have an English language file on it forcing English will have no effect this has to do w/ sysmenu...
    usually the game determines the language by the settings on your console if it has multiple languages on it...
