    I'm trying to install the homebrew channel on my Wii u using the smash stack method so I bought a copy of brawl and I just realized it's NTSC say's RVL P RSBE USA, I'm in Australia so my console is PAL (it does run games with EUR on it) is there anyway I can get the virtual wii side of it to launch this game or am I out of luck?

    Need the game of your region so I don't think there's a work around.

    but I thought you could place a PALL wii disk and click play, and quickly swap disk to the NTSC one!

    that is possible, right?

    Even if this is possible (which I highly doubt - never tried it myself), what is the point of replacing disk of your region with some other disk if you already own disk of required region?

    You'll have to get a PAL copy to get smash stack to work.
    Wouldn't that just damage the console ?

    I'm not sure how region lock works but I doubt this can bypass it.
    + I think it would damage the console removing the disc that its trying to load.

    never do this to do that you would need to pen your wiiu and switch discs while rotating so you would damage the wiiu or even the disk, that doesnt work since ps1 days.

    Yeah, that brings back some memories... On my launch unit of ps1 (SCPH-1001), I could boot into the cd player, put a US game and make it read the toc without closing the top lid (using a spring). After the TOC was displayed in the cd player, the disc stopped spinning. I would switch with a japanese game disc and press a button, and it would boot right away. :rofl2: That was fixed in the next iteration of the hardware.
