    I use a Japanese Wii U. I have installed CFW and some of the games I have installed are in Japanese...they were EU files...how do I change the text to English?

    You need to run the homebrew launcher then run a program called spiik once spiik loads change language to English and change region to European the wiiu will reset and then just select your game

    Thanks, I have tried that... so I'm thinking of trying Regionhax. Is it ok if I install the same games one in English and one in Japanese? Like Japanese SML 3D and US SML 3D?

    Yes you can install the same game from different regions but region hax is now pointless just use a cfw like mocha or haxchi for region free gaming

    You need to run mocha then load a program called spiik. Doing region free hax you will still have the same problems with the games that don't work and either way you will need to run spiik

    Pikmin 3 text remains in Japanese and Super Mario 3D World and Paper Mario Color Splash refuse to boot up. They freeze the screen whether it's in JP, EUR, or USA settings in spiik.

    Ok for color splash you need to modify the rpx file for it to load out of region there where several threads on how to do this back when the game came out for the other two you need to modify the language files in the game again there should be guides somewhere on the site if not I can help you to do it tomorrow some time.

    Ok I will go check. Thank you for offering to help! I found some stuff about Paper Mario but nothing about Pikmin 3 or Super Mario 3D World.
