    I just tried playing Pikmin 2 (the Play on Wii! one) and all I get is a monochrome screen and a very slow refresh time. I hope there's a way to play PAL games at all on a NTSC TV? Booting with IOS 249 (from ModMii) and using composite cables (old TV is old)

    Last time I checked, Pikmin 2 was one of the few PAL games that could not work correctly on NTSC televisions without component cables.

    What do you use to launch it? If you use Neogamma, you need to change the video settings from "Disc" to "Wii".

    You have to set the video setting in the loader to Force NTSC

    Edit:

    I haven't tried this game so this might also be the case.

    This will result in a green screen freeeze. The video mode patches are designed to avoid that freeze, but i think for this game they don't work.

    I use Configurable USB Loader. There no options to force anything, just a bunch of patches that made no difference.

    My TV has no component ports... it's a really shitty one... guess I'll try burning the game to a disc and try Neogamma's "Force to NTSC" option. How do you dodge the crash?

    It won't work and NeoGamma is an usb loader too. CFG can do everything that NeoGamma can do for wii games, with maybe 1 or 2 exotic exceptions.
