    Im runnig 3.1 UK system - And I was sure I had region free installed when I first did homebrew? As I can play an NTSC version of Wii Music - But when I try and play Shape Boxing I just get a black screen - Any ideas?

    Some japanese games require to be run with japanese language. You could set your Wii to japanese language, but i think that's a bad idea. Most people just use a loader and set it to force japanese for these games.

    You can try force PAL if you get color issues with NTSC. Gamma and Gecko OS launch NTSC games with NTSC by default, while SoftChip does that when you select disc region video mode.
