    I have heard that QOOB and other mod chips could force some NTSC games to go 480p like Killer7. Is this possible to do on a Wii? I have a wiikey.

    my backups of f zero gx, smash bros, mario sunshine and mario tennis all work with progressive ON using wiikey

    if the game was not designed with 480p i dont think it can be forced to work. maybe through an external up-converter?

    Here is my second question. I have a http://www.mayflash.com/vgabox/vga001/vga001.htm
    Basically it converts the component to VGA and I can play with component on my monitor.
    I can run Smash Brothers in Progressive Scan and it works. But if i enable 60hz mode on Sunshine it says out of range on my monitor. Does anyone know why it does this?

    60Hz mean 480i and this is not progressive (480p). your monitor cannot display interlaced signals. i have the same vga-transcoder box and the same problems with the majority of the gamecube games and some wii games, which cannot be displayed in 480p.

    1. Run the GCOS program on the Wiikey config disc
    2. Swap for the game you want to play when it prompts you to
    3. It tells you which button to press on your Gamecube controller for different video modes. 480p/Progressive scan is an option

    Trust me, it's more obvious when you try it.

    One snag is if after step 3, a game asks you if you want to play in 50 or 60Hz, it then changes back from 480p to whichever mode you choose. The way round this is to "disable" 60Hz mode; if you choose 50Hz one time at these prompts then it won't ask you again until you next boot a game holding the B button down.

    Hope this helps.
