    Hello everyone.

    Today I discovered that my Wii has decided to not be so friendly to my Gamecube games.

    The Wii recognizes from the menu that it is a gamecube game, but when I try to play it, the television screen goes off like when the Wii is off or the video cable is disconnected. The audio keeps playing, I just have no video.

    I have my Wii at 3.2U using Backup Loader 1.3 Gamma, as well as Starfall.

    Also, I am using component cables.

    Is this an inherent issue with the hacks I am using?

    Thanks for your time and assistance.

    From a quick search i would say that you have to turn off the region free settings in starfall. I believe thats what the topic said this morning.

    for some they have to turn off video patching as well
