Hi there.
Is it possible to change the region on Wiiware WADs?
I'd like to play PAL game on my NTSC Wii without altering my Wii's region.
Thanks,
Dan

Thanks!
I gave that a try but I must be doing something wrong because I am still getting the "This channel cannot be used" message.
Here is what I did...

1. Generated a common-key.bin using makekeybin.exe
2. Dragged my PAL Wiiware WAD onto _wwpacker-DLCRegion.bat
3. Selected USA as my region
4. Installed WAD as normal
5. Cursed!

Am I dragging the WAD onto the correct shortcut?

Thanks again for your help.
Cheers,
Dan

You can also use Showmiiwads for that, much easier.

Or you can use preloaders regionfree channel hack to avoid this problems...

Awesome!

Thanks for the tip.

I got it working using wwPacker-RegionFree.bat but I'll use ShowMiiWADs in future as the interface is a bit friendlier!

Many thanks to you both.
