    First Wii ISO Modifications
    Using TruchaSigner
    The recent release of TruchaSigner (full story here) has opened a wide range of possibilities for Wii game mods. Many of our members are actively working on finding new hacks, which results in high excitement in the dedicated discussion threads.
    We thought it might be useful to clear things up a bit: so here's a very short list of Frequently Asked Questions.

    Q. Can we run backups without a modchip now?
    A. No.

    Q. So what does this do?
    A. The main purpose of this tool is to modify Wii ISOs.

    Q. Is there a tutorial available for this tool?
    A. Yes, click here for a nice tutorial written by IBNobody.

    Q. What are the modifications that have been found so far?
    - Enable gore in Manhunt 2 (source)
    - Disable the drivecheck in Super Mario Galaxy (source)
    - Change the credits and increase characters speed in Mario Strikers (source)
    - Play Manhunt 2 in Italian or German (source)
    - Swap character's movesets in SSBB (source)
    - Boot SSBB without 15% trick or dual channels (source)
    - Boot SSBB on a single layer disc (source)
    - Remove Error 001 in SSBB (source) [​IMG]
    - Invincibility in Manhunt 2 (source) [​IMG]
    - Nitrobike hack, NTSC only (source) [​IMG]
    - Guitar Hero III customization (source) [​IMG]

    This topic will be updated as more modifications are posted!
    If you find something new, please send me a private message ASAP.

    FYI: be reassured, game modifications seem to have no effect in online modes (eg. the Mario Strikers mod).

    Hmm Sounds very interesting, I am just imagining trainers at the start of loads of wii games now just like old skool psx games.

    Sounds fantastic but do I understand that SMG can be patched to remove the chip check but still must be the same region?

    So now it's a possibility to dump VC releases too?
    A bunch of VC games have changes made to them and some have been released in English officially for the first time (Sin & Punishment). It would be great if there was a way of "owning" them on your PC to play with emulators.

    how far do you think we are from running VC games... or non VC games like chrono trigger on a channel?

    i would love to modify pngs or whatever image format they┬┤re using for the channels.

    I hacked my Psp version of Manhunt and that was hard enough. Just downloaded the Wii version and going to give it a go. have to say it looks mindboggling to do.

    Does someone know if it makes a difference if you delete the whole strings in the Manhunt .ini instead of just editing them?

    Looking at this it's just amazing how the Wii community has changed so quickly. First comes the Zelda exploit and shortly after come new discoveries, and now this. Soon maybe firmware hacks will come, since hackers will be able to install their own updates in the Wii discs [​IMG]

    So does this or does this not have the potential to play uncompatible NTSC games on PAL?
