    The new argon firmware is released! And this it what the infectus website states:

    Does this really mean 100% import support? Who can test it on a pal console with no more heroes?

    What I read on the forum is that you have to install extra wires for the 100% import compatibility.. you have to install a wire to a specific position based if your console is pal or ntsc..

    Yes, it is! But it seems intresting because the team has actively been updating the firmware since the release. I doubting to get this chip with my new wii but its very expensive. It seems that it does support the 100% import I will get this one.

    Wasn't Argon lacking of compatibility and giving a lot of problems? [​IMG]

    They all update there chips often then once they have made a heap of cash they run and hide.
    It happens to all including the cyrstal chip for the ps2.

    Cheers

    The stupid thing is it is easy to test! But no one has done that yet! :S Its as simple as inserting no more heroes in a pal console and see what happens.....

    To good to be true... heres our awnser:

    There are games not compatible with different regions.

    It's not a problem of chip. The game call particular function present or not present in the system. So, may be, a game for ntsc call the function xyz and the same function on pal console is not present. This crash every thing.

    Some one, say to have fixed this problem, changing 50/60hz or other graphics values ( we never try this! ).

    Yeah what tjas said but on top of that according to a lot of people in the wiinewz forums argon has trouble playing backups even of your own region. It's a very buggy chip supposedly.

    I have a couple of people waiting to mod their D2C wiis but want to see if Brawl works first on the d2ckeys.. i just dont trust the argons yet, they seem very dodgy.

    Im really hoping the D2Pro comes out soon.. 15 wires sound much better.

    It'd be great to see/hear that there's a 100% regionfree modchip for wii. I'm on the lookout for one which does that. (I've read that if you put in games of different region (say PAL/NTSC-U) into a NTSC-J console, you can either brick/semi-brick the machine.
