    Hiya, sorry if this is a retarded question but I just can't find the answer.

    I downloaded some NTSC games for gamecube (One Piece Grand Battle) but it doesn't play on my PAL wii. (with wiikey). Is there any way to make it region free or to get it to play on my wii?

    Some NTSC game will not work on the wii. You'll just have to wait until the wiikey team release the next update, maybe they'll be fixed. Either that or download the pal version.

    You can boot it using GCOS.
    I think there's a version of GCOS in the updated wiikey bootdisk as well

    Hi,
    I'm using WiiFree chip and I've burned many of gamecube games with GCOS V2 and V3.

    So far I had no luck with any of the PAL games (My wii is NTSC USA)
    Also, I had some problem with some of the games after it's loaded and played for at least 5-10 minutes. There's a message saying that the gamecube games can't be read and then when I eject the disc and put it back in, it says "Please insert ...... game disc bla bla bla".

    Are you guys having the same problem as I do?
    If I burn the GCOS created iso with slower speed will that help reduce the disc reading error?

    I've had little luck playing PAL on a US Wii too. But burning them right to a DVD+RW works more often.

    Well, if I burn em straight to dvd, all I get is either a green or black screen. Pal works fine though.
