    On certain Japanese games when the Wii displays Japanese characters they come up as gibberish symbols similar to if you tried to view a website in Japanese without having the language packs installed.

    Is there any way to get them to display correctly on a PAL console?

    Well then I think you've come up with the solution then Screemer. Instead of flaming someone for giving an idea, you should have used your knowledge to give a better answer. But the answer is to use Starfall.

    Make sure you follow the directions for installation exactly as they are set out or face a brick.

    Also using AnyRegionChanger would have been another good choice.
