I recently softmodded my bro's 4.2u wii using a guide on another website. I was able to play soul calibur 2, p.n.03 and fire blade - all 3 discs are original pal gamecube games, not backups. I started the games via disc channel. HOWEVER when I tried to play my fourth gamecube game(zelda twilight princess), also a pal original disc for the gamecube, the game is recognised as a gamecube one in disc channel and when i press start the wii seems to start loading it but the screen remains blank and nothing happens. This odd behavior only occurs with zelda twilight princess, and since I have no other gamecube discs that makes a 3/4 success rate :| I had enabled "region free everything" system hack in priiloader - reason for the 3 games working fine on a ntsc wii. Then I did something different- disabled the region free everything system hack in priiloader and tried neogamma to boot the soul calibur 2 game. This worked! BUT when I tried the zelda disc the same blank screen was the result. Next I tried usb loader gx, having a wbfs usb flash drive. I inserted the soul calibur 2 disc, usb loader gx asked if i wanted to mount it and i said yes and it detected the disc as soulcalibur2 and the game started fine! I did the same for the zelda game, usb loader gx detected the disc as legend of zelda: twilight princess etc and when i clicked on it to load, SAME BLANK SCREEN!!! summary of facts: gameriginal pal zelda twilight princess for the gamecube wii: softmodded 4.2u using mentioned guide^ other stuff: this zelda game works on a gamecube console, it also works on a pal wii (2 separate wiis i have used in the past) ANY ideas what the problem might be? more thoughts/info on the matter: Warning: Spoilers inside! 1.

Above are the settings for neogamma to be clear what is configured Is it possible that i am missing some files that are required to run some pal gamecube games on a ntsc wii? came across this in another thread on another website: "sometimes the updates install new IOS's, so you will still have to manually install IOS's if a game requires a certain IOS that you do not have installed, you will get a black screen if you do not have the required IOS." so im thinking maybe im missing an IOS that is required by twilight princess :s 2. sysCheck v2.0 by Double_A ...runs on IOS58 (rev 6175).
