    Hey Guys, searched using assistant and manually but couldn't find any obvious answer.

    A friend was given a PAL D2C modded Wii for Christmas, they have asked me to burn them a whole bunch of games including Mario Galaxy.

    My question is do D2C modded Wii's need to run the Mario Galaxy update, with the duplicate channel power off trick?
    Or can I just burn them a brickblocked copy of Mario Galaxy and it will run fine?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    mario galaxy has been released in all regions! So just get it for your own region dude! ALL wii's need to run the mario update, regardless of chip or region. Get a mario of yer own region n run it. Games yer own region are always fine to update.

    1) get iso for your own region
    2) burn to dvd WITHOUT brickblocker
    3) do the game update required to play the game
    4) play the game

    No one's sure how D2Ckey can be updated, if at all, but it runs SMG out of the box

    I would prefer to not have to download a whole new version of the game just to give a friend a copy.

    Not all of us have Usenet access with unlimited downloads from our ISP.

    But thanks for the answer anyways.

    Look at the RegionFrii list on the GBATemp Wiki. SMG doesn't play out of region anyway.

    Edit: actually, the results conflict with each other, some people say yes, others no [​IMG]

    US mario plays fine on PAL, but you need to do the metroid trick, i.e. burn it twice etc.

    Im a noob to wii hacking so dont get mad if i ask a noob question [​IMG]

    So if i rented Trauma Center New Blood NTSC-US for my USA Wii, dumped the iso, burned it, and updated on my USA wii it would be ok right?

    Or you could just download the game. Wii games aren't like 360 ones.
