    I recently soft-modded my Wii, but I am having difficulty finding compatible games. I am running an English Wii, does that mean all games I use have to be USA/NTSC or can I use PAL games as well? There seems to be a lot more PAL games... or easier to find rather.

    You can use PAL games as well as NTSC-J games on your NTSC-U Wii. Loaders will load backups regardless of region (you may need to force NTSC video mode to prevent picture problems), and if you have Preloader installed you can even allow for region-free playing of imported retail discs.

    You can, you just have to force NTSC on every PAL game you want.

    I'm trying to get the New Mario Bros game to work right now and it is a PAL version. How do I change the settings to work? Right now, when I start the game, it appears to load correctly, but the screen is scrolling up and shaky, like there's something wrong with the graphics. Do I need to change some region/config options? Do I have to be running a certain IOS or whatever? I'm still all new to this. But the Super Paper Mario seems to work just fine, but it is already a NTSC version.

    and Force video to NTSC/Wii
