    My friend is trying to play No More Heroes 2 NTSC on his PAL wii. Now, it doesn't want to boot when he has "Force PAL" on, though if he has "Force NTSC" on, it lets him through the intro screen, and then says his tv mode is not supported.

    Help?

    EDIT: His TV is pal btw.

    EDIT2: He also sees a system update when he puts in Super Mario Galaxy 2, though he's on 4.3.

    Is this a retail disk played on a region-free Wii or a backup?

    Did you enable Region-Free in the SysMenu Hacks of Priiloader? I find that helps.

    His Wii is PAL, right?

    Is he playing this in Europe on a PAL TV? Some older TVs don't support NTSC signals. Try enabling Force PAL again, but use a different loader, like CFG USB Loader.

    His LCD TV is a Pal.

    And he has also tried using different loaders as well.

    Hmm, the only thing I can think of is that the video output cables aren't working right. Try replacing them or using a different TV?

    The system update can be stopped with the priiloader hacks. "Never check for system updates" and "never show DVD updates" or something (the names speak for themselves).


    For the main question, I'm going to go with chaosdarkneo. Assuming your friend used the latest cIOS and loaders, and forced the settings correctly, it should play. So since it doesn't, it's probably one of the older PAL tv's that can't display NTSC.

    I'd ask "can he play other NTSC games?", but that isn't proving much. [​IMG]
