    I was wondering what do I have to do to patch the Japanese New Play Control Metroid Prime to English. Do I need a special patch? Or is it enough to change the default language of the ISO with a tool?

    All you need to do is to switch ENGL and JAPN with a hexeditor in the main.dol and 1 or 2 of the other .dols. If you want to patch to another language, switch JAPN and the characters for the other language. You need to patch the .dols before burning, an on the fly patch doesn't work, because it's not only the main.dol that has to be changed.

    Call me ignorant but may I ask what's so special about this version as opposed to the oh let's say, English version?

    edit:
    Never mind, I get it. It hasn't been released yet.
    First I thought it was Metroid Prime 3 but when I googled I noticed "de Asobu" stands for New Play Control.

    Yay it works [​IMG] I have a question though. When I start a new game half of the screen turns green. I heard that this has to do with IOS fake signing. I'm on Wanin 4.0 system right now, what do I need to install to make the IOSes fake-signable [​IMG] ?

    You also need to patch it to run off of IOS249 if you don't have CIOSCORP installed. Also, it doesn't work in the USB Loader yet.

    1. You need to play the game from disc, it's not compatible AT ALL with usb loaders at the moment
    2. You need to patch the game to use IOS249, or have cioscorp installed, or else you get the result you described.
    (if you have a modchip, then indeed, you need the fakesiging bug in your IOS to get the game to work, but patching to IOS249 would work too for you)

    An English patched ISO has been out for a good while, I've downloaded it and played through it months ago.

    I've downloaded it, Brick Blocked it and patched it to IOS249 but it still brings me back to BootMii and the System Menu. However, it does access the DVD for a bit longer before it crashes. I have a PAL Wiikey Wii running Waninkoko's 4.0 firmware and can run Trucha Signed discs without a problem. Is BootMii causing a problem do you think..?

    How to check:
    With AnyTitleDeleter, WAD Manager and SoftChip, pretty obvious how to check with these applications, once they are started

    How to install:
    Install a cIOS(rev 7 or later), which one should not matter for you. cIOS are always installed as IOS249 if nothing different is stated.
