    For TimeSplitters 2, there's a few action replay codes that the PAL version has that the NTSC version doesn't.

    On this website: http://www.cheathapp...itters_2_cheats there's a "Never lose stealth points", "Stop suit power countdown", and "Easy points in certain challenges" cheat under the "EU" codes, but those 3 aren't in the "US" section. I've looked on many websites and none of them have a US code for those 3. I tried getting a GCT from with the US codes I want, and then added those 3 pal codes with GCTEdit but it made the game freeze on startup. To test where geckocodes got their codes, I converted a US Action Replay code from action replay to Ocarina using GCNcrypt and ARtoWiiRD to see if I would get the same code as gecko, and I did. So the codes in are converted action replay codes. Since the PAL codes don't work on my TimeSplitters 2, I converted them to NTSC by taking the action replay code and putting it in GCNcrypt and decrypting it, taking the decrypted code and encrypting it in USA, then decrypting the USA code and converting that into WiiRD and that made it freeze on startup again. I then tried the same code but without converting to WiiRD and it froze on startup again. So I've narrowed it down to the point where converting it to NTSC doesn't work, meaning I need to use the PAL codes on my US game. Is this possible? Are there options that will allow the use of PAL Ocarina codes on an NTSC game?

    If it matters, my Wii is 4.1U and I'm using NeoGamma R9 b56, cIOS56rev21 (249) to launch Gamecube games. I'm using WiiGator's cMIOS.

    I am pretty sure that AR codes are region specific because the games have different offset values. There's no such thing as "converting" EUR to USA that I know of, aside from actually rediscovering the code from scratch.
