    Hi Guys, I ordered a this combo from Ozmod Chips. First of all they provide great service. The chip is coming to Canada. Will I be able to play NTSC games and also Pal. Or is this chip just limited to North America. I did not specify to him for region free. What will I have to do to play region free games. The chip is coming to me soldered on the Wii-clip.

    Thanks

    Just check out the installation instructions at d2ckey.com.
    If you want region override, you'll have to solder one or two jumpers on the d2ckey itself.
    It's all explained in a diagram.
    For NTSC America, you need to short JP1 and leave JP2 open.
    I'm assuming that OzMod will not solder any region override because I just ordered one and my region is PAL.
    Just a little tin and a soldering iron will do it for you in about 5 seconds.

    If you don't short the jumpers then region override is disabled.


    Cheers,

    So what you are saying, until I jump 1 and 2 together I will not be able to play any back up games.

    Nope. I dont want to assume someone has a particular console just because they are coming from that region.
    If I solder the wrong point then the chip just wont work. If I dont solder the point then it will work, just not region free unless they do it themselves
    I will be adding a drop down box soon so the person can choose

    Maybe I don't understand by region free. As long as the North American games play I am happy. So the way that OZ sent is without any jumpers. So if I want to play a game from Europe or a different region I would have to Jump the chip. is that correct ?

    You will be able to play all backups from your region
    if you want to play PAL , or Jap games - you just need to join a little point on the modchip

    And I'm thankful for it, OzMod.
    I don't want to have any region override on my chip. I just want to play PAL backups without risking a bricked WII.
    So I'm happy with the solution that you're shipping right now (can't wait, can't wait).

    By the way, if anybody else has questions on this: It's all explained on the webpages of d2ckey.
    Just check out d2ckey.com and you'll know all this stuff too. [​IMG]
