    I have searched extensively but can't a definitive answer. Will all NTSC games work using a loader channel which forces NTSC? I know it works for forcing PAL games on a NTSC wii, but I have read here that forcing NTSC with some PAL games does not work (hence my stack of PAL games which only produce a green or blank screen or produce the "an error has occurred" error). It appears that some games will not work when forcing the NTSC/PAL video mode. But does forcing NTSC on an NTSC game actually attempt to force the video mode or is the launcher smart enough to know that forcing in that instance is unnecessary? In my ideal world I'd like to use a launcher channel which forces NTSC on PAL games and still allows all NTSC games to work. Thanks.

    I know it's off-topic and pointless, but I'm curious. Are there any NTSC games that work if set to force PAL?

    I had an autoboot Force NTSC launcher, and my NTSC games all worked fine with it. (Well, all the ones that worked w/o forcing NTSC, anyway).

    Almost all work but you have to choose forcepal to play with colors.
