    My email:

    Dear Wiikey
    Will the upcoming patch increase the region compatibility on pal consoles?
    So that we can play bleach,trauma center,naruto on a pal console?
    And when will the patch be released?
    Best regards
    ****

    Hello ****
    The next patch will increase region free compatibility on all regions
    The next patch will enable pal users to play trauma center(US region) and Bleach
    Unfortunatly we havent found a way yet to make naruto work on NTSC-U consoles nor PAL consoles
    And the Patch will be released next week
    Best Regards
    Wiikey team

    I hope its true what they say [​IMG]

    OpenWii doesn't have region free *yet* but they are investigating it.

    Chiip doesnt have it, and hasn't released an update in awhile.

    If you region patch, its equal compatibility with both chips as far as I know. Unless another patching method is found.

    let's hope it doesn't turn in to a drama like the cyclowiz update. Still, I'll believe it when I see it

    i thought they said the compatibility can't be raised by software updates...
    but if they can, it's a good thing...

    i'm still curious weather this is just improved generic patch code which can be applied to many other region specific games, or individual game patches which happens alot on say some emulators for example..

    i know they say "will increase region free compatibility on all regions", but they also then go to only state that the next patch will enable 2 specific games to run, which could indicate individual game patch routines. Either way its a good step forward, i'm just curious.

    Team Wiikey seem to be slow to release this, hopefully because they *have* found a way to increase the region compatibility...

    Trauma Center would be cool, that's for sure!
