    I have a JAP wii and Gecko runs pretty much everything.

    I'm thinking of getting a PAL wii. Will it run all my US and JAP games? If not all, approximately how many? Are there any other disadvantages?

    Thanks!

    The Gecko Region does not run every game, and it's pretty much random of what it doesn't play. There aren't any disadvantages of what I can think of...But what are you thinking of when you say 'disadvantages'?

    One big disadvantage of GeckoOS is that it gets the date wrong when you're playing games that you have booted from it -- the date inside your games will always be 1/1/2000. It doesn't mess with your Wii's actual clock, that will be correct once you return to the Wii's menu.

    But that doesn't really matter TBH, only in Real Time games such as Animal Crossing.

    Thanks for your replies.. how many % of the games do you think will work? A very rough guess will do! Still not sure..! [​IMG]
