    I have tuned out of the Wii Scene for a couple weeks and im making a thread to ask the questions i have.

    1. Freethewads is a program that makes .wads region free correct? So if i use Freethewads on a PAL .wad i can play it on my NTSC-U Wii?

    2. What is this new thing about injecting roms? Can someone give me a link to the guides?

    3. Do any of the above questions require a modchip?

    Thanks for your time [​IMG]

    I more or less expect people to search at least a little, but I feel generous today.

    1. Yes potentially you can do that, it is not fool proof though, and it depends on the individual wad.

    2. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=85521 Read the whole thread to get an idea of what you need to do. It's on the first page of this forum, usually at the top. Look a little bit harder first next time.

    3. No modchips required, only Zelda exploit.

    What do you mean by 'fool proof'?

    So my idea of injecting now is that you download ANY rom and you inject it into a .wad so that you basically your turning a rom into a wad?

    ----

    So,

    I got a NTSC-U Wii

    1. I download my ROM and my .wad ( e.x. Super Smash Bros.rom and Sin.wad PAL )
    2. Download Injector
    3. Inject ROM into .wad ( e.x. Super Smash Bros.rom gets injected in the Sin.wad so the Sin.wad is basically Smash Bros. just with a different name? When I inject the rom in the PAL .wad does the game become PAL?)
    4. I use Freethewads and turn the PAL.wad region free so i can use it on my USA wii
    5. Download WAD Installer and Install it
    6. put the Smash Bros injected.wad into 'wad' folder
    7. Then i install the wads?

    Does it work like this?

    If not can you please explain because i can only find a few NTSC-U wads and TONS more PAL

    Also can injecting and installing VC games ban you from Nintendo Wi-Fi? has anyone been banned yet? How can they ban you?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    its not fool proof in that not all wads which you run through freethewads is going to work when it comes out. It isn't 100%, just like everything else in the homebrew scene.

    My suggestion is to find the NTSC ones, they're out there, even if they are harder to find.

    The game would become pal, but it may cause errors on pal systems, the best thing to do is ntsc to ntsc and pal to pal. That said, it can work ntsc to pal and pal to ntsc, it sometimes ends up less effective though. Your best bet for compatibility, seeing as it sounds like you're using an ntsc console, is to just use ntsc roms and ntsc wads

    You have the basic idea, you just need to have all the files in the same place for the injector. Follow a guide for the wad installer, its easy to find. If the wad doesn't work, then it is either incompatible or something got messed up along the way. more than likely with n64 the rom is incompatible. any questions about the injection process can be asked in that thread if you manage to succeed but get an error.
