    Hello everyone,

    i'm trying the whole day to replace the american opening in tales of symphonia 2 with the one from the japanese version, but i can't make it work =/
    I already tried everything.
    First, i replaced it with Trucha signer (extracted the op.thp from japanese iso via trucha -> opened the us-iso -> replaced the op.thp -> signed the partitions -> burned it on verbatim dvd-r with 2.4x speed).
    Result: Wii-Disc-Channel shows "New Update" - So far so good, since i've a pal-wii, i have to start other-region games via gecko os, so i tried with my modified tos2-version. Launched GeckOS via HBC, pressed A - and...nothing. Screen freezes-
    Burned it a second time - same result.

    Then i tried the same replacemente-procedure with WiiScrubber 1.2 - same result. I'm really clueless right now and i'm really really begging you for help...i want that damn japanese opening =(

    oh yes my wii is running on wiikey with the latest update and wii-firmware v3.3e, but since i'm using gecko os this shouldn't matter, should it?

    I don't have much experience with this...but I'd consider burning at a faster speed.

    I have to use at least 8x on my games or else it'll be a very iffy burn. :/

    Are you able to use any Trucha signed discs? I thought all 3.3 updates are a bad idea if you plan this.

    and i thought, as long as you use gecko os and hbc it doesn't matter, cause gecko can still play trucha discs =/

    Depends. Did you get the latest online update or not?
    If you did, truncha wont work.

    I got the Japanese OP to work, but I'm trying to get the Japanese audio for the whole game working too. Japanese OP is superior though.

    If you're interrested in my undubbed version, PM me Knolli.
    But I didn't only change the intro, also things like voices, SFX, title screen...
