    Just wondering really, is it possible to play NTSC backups using a PAL Wii?
    I've tried a couple using both default and PAL 50Hz video modes, but NTSC backups refuse to load. Is it just because the region of the game doesn't match my Wii?

    Around somewhere
    Every modern backup loader (Wiiflow / CFG mod / USBloader X / PostLoader) should be able to play NTSC games on a PAL wii.
    Maybe your TV is incompatible..or...
    Things you could try if you ARE using one of the latest and it is still not working is: try fiddling with the video settings of the loader or update your cios.
    It also could be the Hard drive you are using is incompatible or has errors or your backups are corrupted.
    Or if you use a burned disc, your wii is a newer wii which does not read burned discs.

    I know that the files themselves are fine because I can load them using Dolphin (PC emulator for Wii). And I don't think it's an issue with my hard drive/cios/wii because I can load PAL backups perfectly fine. I'll try a different loader, see if that makes any difference, because I've tried several video settings and I still get a black screen.
