    Hi, I haven't been in the loop for years.. have modded Wii with homebrew channel etc.

    I have the N64 Zelda VC games in WAD files, is it possible to play on a PAL Wii at the correct speed?

    At the moment the speed of Ocarina of Time is completely wrong..

    Thanks!

    when you say correct speed do you mean for the pal version (which was 17% slower) or the ntsc version? but yes a ntsc wad should work on a pal wii as long as you change the region on the wad

    I only have the NTSC version so when I play on PAL Wii the sound clips (glitches), and the speed is wrong.. would changing the region of the wad fix that and how can I do it?

    its been a while since i messed with wads, but i believe there is a program about called freethewads, it should be able to change the region of the wad to suit you better
