    No More Heroes (U) PAL fix hack

    GBAtemp member matsuken has discovered and shared with us a way using the recent Wii ISO modification tool 'TruchaSigner' to allow PAL Wii owners to run No More Heroes on their Wii.

    Oh wow! R-E-S-P-E-C-T to matsuken and everybody else, who has discovered/developed hacks for Wii games. I love you guys (and/or gals) long time. I'm downloading a Wii tool collection as I write these lines. Can't wait for my two-week vacation to tinker with this stuff.
    Oh, and this NMH hack shows that something similar could be happing with PES. Puh-leez?! [​IMG]

    I got a ppf-o-matic patch for Manhunt 2. Just ran it on the Iso and it worked a treat. It would be amzing if some one could do the same for NMH.


    Here is a link to the Manhunt hack. Might help someone make a patch for No more heroes. Its in post 15.

    Scroll down to 0x4c4450, which should be listed down the left side. 0x4c4453 should be the 4th pair of numbers/letters.

    Aww yeah, awesome work. And since this apparently works with every game in theory, we finally have full region free! This is GREAT!

    great news [​IMG]

    I will take it in US now.
    if noone made a ppf in around 15hours (more or less 1 days), I'll make one if the patch is not too big.

    but as the key has changed for the entire DVD, it could result in a 4Gb patch :/
    in that case, I will not release any patch.

    just read the tutorial to use Trucha signer and edit the file by yourself.



    Edit :

    Or else, I can make a ppf for the file only, not the entire iso.
    You will need the Trucha signer too, to put the file back.

    erm, i didn't understand a word of that, what i did find was a program called WiiBrowse_1.0 (it has a gui without dos commands) that lets you extract the files from the iso i extract the dol from the game right? (i need the ckey.bin file before i can use it?) then open that dol file in a hex editor and change the values, and then somehow put the file back into the iso right? just trying to keep it simple [​IMG]
