    Hi!
    I didnt use my PAL wii for quite some time now, but today I updated the softmod and installed some new pal wads (vc games only)

    I did find alot of japanese neogeo wads that i would like to install, but will that result in a brick since my system is PAL 4.1E..

    I know that system wads is important to use only same region but what about Virtual Console games? Can I install any region?

    PAL 4.1E With Wiikey and Hackmii /Boot2

    Thanks in advance!

    thnk you can use programs like free the wads to remove the region on wads to make them safe to use, to be safer you could set up something liike sneek/uneek or mighty channels

    I do it all the time using "ShowMiiwads" make the wad region free and you're good to go.
    If you have many wads then consider neek2o as clarky said [this way you'll save those few free blocks that your wii still has :)]

    If you have Priiloader installed, enable the region free hacks. There's no need to use freethewads or showmiiwads as it's not the right way to go about it.

    I agree with Lwares87 on this, neek2o also has the options to turn on hacks to use other region games. No need for priiloader even

    +1 an even if you don't want to do that or know how.(realeasy by the way). just make your nands the region of the wads. plus side to this is if one of the wads are bad, you'll mess up the nand an not the real nand. ;)

    Wow, thanks all for the replys! But I read that Priiloaders function "region free" will make the system menu unstable?
    If not then thats probably the easiest option for me :) neek2o i havent known about till now ;)

    Thanks!

    Sometimes Priiloader DOES have issues, just use SMW (showmiiwads) and set it region free.

    There are other applications and tools, other than Priiloader. But, it's the best way that I can think of to help you.
