    Hi! I'm new to this forum.

    Question:
    I have a pal WiiU that I softmodded.
    After installing an NTSC VC wad I can't play it because of the pal video setting. I can however force NTSC videomode trough USB loader GX and play the game.
    But I find it annoying to have to boot up the USB loader every single time.

    Is there any way to change the video mode of vWii, So that it will be possible to boot games directly from the main screen?

    Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to everyone reading this thread, I hope I been informative enough about my problems.

    Just find a PAL version of the wad, or convert it to region free.

    You're right, but I find pal wads to be sluggish and ugly :-)

    I tried Freethewads and it does convert the regions, but it does not change the videomode to 60hz. Booting the converted wad gives a black screen because vWii tries to output 60hz but the pal WiiU wont let it.
    I'm thinking that if USB loader can force NTSC video, maybe vWii can too... The old Wii needed to be patched to region free with Priiloader.

    the loading mechanism on vwii changed so direct channel patches wont do anything to if it you start it via the system menu so the only patch you can apply is via a usb loader.
