    Since the jpn version of the game is out i was wondering if anyone makes a patch like the one for Metroid Prime 1 Wii.
    That is if the other scripts are included in this game too.
    Can someone confirm this?

    Did you try the patch method from Metroid Prime 1?


    Open the .dols in a hexeditor and switch ENGL and JAPN in them. Then repack them into the .iso, patch the game to use IOS249 and burn. I'm just assuming the english patch works in the same way it worked for 1 and that the game is a IOS Reloading game too.

    I know its still a couple months away, but the Metroid Prime: Trilogy will be hitting the North American market soon, with all 3 games bundled on one disc. With Wiimote support. In English.

    Could someone make a PPF patch for this as was done with the first one?

    You could use a loader with language selection instead of making a patch for the game, you know.

    As far as i know this does not work on Metroid Prime 1. It's really that string switching that is required. And since the .dol used by the game is not the main.dol, the loader can't patch it on the fly.

    Ah, I wasn't aware of that. I was under the assumption that the loader setting did what the patch does on the fly.

    Also, do we know if MP2 is also an IOS reloading game?

    No problem. For now, we know nothing more than the game exists.

    I saw some other posts that said the game works in the USB loader so maybe it's not an ios reloading game.

    Sorry, BUT DON'T TELL THE ENGLISH PATCH DOES NOT WORK if you don't mention how you tried to patch. Sorry, i doubt nearly everybody to do the patch with a hexeditor to the .dol manually and that's the only method that would work.

    just checked the other thread in backup loader section, it is ios reloading and doesn't work with usbloader. My problem is that metroid prime 2 works on cioscorp, and metroid prime 1 does not? Wtf?

    i've never been good with PPF patching, ever since the PS1 [​IMG]

    EDIT: also, i'm not into metriod, but i have a feeling if i play it i'll get addicted lol. are metroid 1 and 2 new on wii?

    i was about to read up about them on wikipedia, but there is nothing about neither 1 or 2... just the wii release metriod 3: corruption...

    Prime 1 works fine for me on my cioscorp'd wii.

    And to the post above, these are re-releases of the original gamecube games Metroid Prime 1 and 2 in Wii format with the controls of Metroid Prime 3.

    on USB loader prime 1 does not work, burnt it will

    that is completely.. you can patch it so that you can't save, and can't access the menu, then it works on usbloader afaik
