    Hi everyone, if this question has already been answered somewhere else I'm really sorry but anyways, I have an NTSC Wii, with 4.0U firmware, softmodded and I have a mod chip. I always use WiU1.1 to block any updates from games if there are any. Some of the games that have been released recently are only in PAL format, so I am wondering, am I able to play these games on my Wii or do I have to wait for the NTSC version to be released? I have read about how you can use the program that I have to block updates from PAL games so I dont brick my Wii but just want to be sure. Worse comes to worse I will just wait on those games. Thanks so much!

    If you have HBC and Usb loader GX you can just select Autopatch and play whatever PAL games you want

    I have Homebrew channel but all I have on it is the backup launcher..I dont have USB loader GX..I just have the homebrew channel and my modchip..I always use WiU1.1 to patch updates so it doesnt appear, if that helps in anyway who knows, but Ive never gotten an update but I have read that if you dont patch a game and you by accident update a game, that it can brick the wii so of course I dont want that to happen

    Hey there, haven't seen you online in a while. So using WiU1.1 to patch games is fine to use for PAL games, then I can just burn em and play it in my NTSC Wii, I dont have to do anything else? Thanks :-)

    be sure to set your video mode to PAL otherwise you'll get a black screen when loading the game....

    at least I think so [​IMG]

    in USB Loader GX (and similar for all other loaders) under video settings you'll have the option... and you'll want to set it to 'force ntsc'. USB Loader GX lets you save this setting for each individual game, but with a 'global' setting for default. I play PAL games all the time... sometimes because they get released first, sometimes because they're exclusive to PAL (Rugby, Cricket, Disaster Day of Crisis, etc).
