    Gecko regionfree (version 1.4/1.5) or datels freeloader.

    I'll post a link to the regionfree in a sec.
    EDIT: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=2507

    The link was taken from the sticky: "Common download links" by Prime.

    It should, but if you got a code dump error, how did you see the message?

    Try loading another way (TP hack, wiiload, etc.). A direct way of loading the elf.

    the TP-hack etc is wii-mode only.
    IIRC the only way to play gc imports is using a modchip, and you can not play pal games on an ntsc wii if they don't support 60hz. If they do, you may have to enable it using GCOS. So use GCOS [​IMG]

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Gecko Region Free works with GC games? Why did no-one tell me?
    In fact, are you sure? I'm gonna go check this one.

    EDIT:
    Nup, you most certainly can't play GC imports in Gecko Region Free. The ONLY way (IF it happens, of course) you will be able to play GC imports on the Wii again (without modding it) is if the firmware's IOS is modified. And that may not happen.
    Just break out the GC if you need to play your import games. If you sold your GC, you're just silly [​IMG].

    Just try GCOS then. The modchip regionfree and wii freeloader don't change the TV mode. (causes problems for me with ntsc ToS on pal wii, half the screen is blurry (or something like that), so I need to use gcos)

    Why can't you just use WW from your own region? [​IMG]
    I have WW legitly in my own region, but I happen to have a Wii MultiGames disc with WW and 4SA on it (down-uh, i mean legally bought it for 4SA), and since it's Multi Games, it already has GCOS on it (that specific Wii MultiGames disc, unlike most other you can find premade, is actually PAL)

    If the OP has some imports working... I'm guessing it is already chipped.

    If you have the games dumped - I find you get best compatibility if you use MultiGame ISO Creator v3.2.4F+.... and you get the added bonus of multiple games on one disc.
